will do tomorrow night lol, and because i ran the wires into the jeep to the switch for for both the power wire from the battery and the power wire for the headlight, and i think i may have mixed up those two wires and hooked up one of the the headlights with the power battery wire but then it would already be on so im not sureeee, because then the one halo light would constantly be on because it would be getting power, so maybe a bad ground? but i know its getting power because i put a light up switch in the jeep and that powers on when i switch it on.... so im going to look at it tomorrow

i thought you didn't have to do wiring for the halos; arent they just plug'n'go?

the headlights are just plug and go but the halos have to be wired just like an offroad light with with a power wire and a ground wire, forgot to mention that

gotta run them to a separate switch unless you wanna run them to your marker lights so when your marker lights are on the are on, but then they are constantly on

with the link i gave you i think it shows you the back of the light, for the halo on these it only lights the outer edge when the halo is on the lights for the halo are seperate and plug into the back of the housing

lol ok, yeah i kept wondering why you just posted that one pic and didnt post another pic of just the halo's on by themselves. looks like you've figured out your problem though, please post more pics when you get your wiring figured out.

shanker i just tried to get a picture of the headlights and how clean it shows but obviously my crappy camera phone isn't good so im not going to have any luck , sorry dude. buttttt they are replaceable with h4 headlights if you wanted to upgrade to better bulbs it wouldn't be hard. but i am very happy with how clear mine are
