I bought my set from another jeepforum member and got a good deal, but I live in Canada and customs charged me $45 duty to get them up here. Would have been under $100, but oh well. Not in original box, but never installed or used, still had original plastic on it.
My first impression right away was their size. for a 6" light, they are very big, and are about 6-7" deep. The quality of the product is *VERY* apparent as soon as you pick one up. They are quite heavy, and are very solid feeling.
The kit comes with:
- all the wiring you need (maybe, explained later), including a relay, in-line fuse blocks/fuses
- a switch for the dash with a small LED indicator to tell you when they are on, but you won't need this as you will see the light they put out in the middle of the day
- some zip ties (you will want to pick up some more if you want to do a neat looking install),
- 2x KC Daylighters with yellow smileyface covers, like in the picture.
The install was a pain in the *** despite the simple yet good instructions. Not KC's fault though, electrical is just a pain.
I mounted the lights in the factory holes for the fog lights on my stock bumper (TJ). The holes had to be drilled out for the lights to fit, because the stems on the KCs are very beefy. They mount to the bumper with big rubber grommets on the top and bottom which will prevent them from moving around. This also allows you to tighten them down quite well, and still have them adjustable for aiming. This also means that if you bump them (not too hard) on the trail they are likely to move instead of smash.
I then mounted the relay under my hood right by my fuse box, close to the battery. Ran all the wiring, and hooked up the lights on the front. I tore my dash apart, and drilled a hole for the switch, mounted it, and ran the wiring from under the hood through the firewall and hooked it up to the switch.
Initial test run (after installing fuses) is a success! Tidy it all up and go for a test run. It was starting to get dark by this point, and already it's easy to tell that they are much, much brighter than my high beams. They are so bright that you will *not* be able to use them in town unless you point them downwards quite a bit, then back up for normal usage on the trails... which is a good thing, cause the more light you have on the trails, the better!
I could not be happier with this product. They are superb quality, and they are much brighter than I had expected. My only very small beef is that the wires were not quite long enough that run to the lights. I had to cut the wires and lengthen them.. but it's a quick easy fix. I would also suggest buying some wire loom for the install as their wire coating they have will not cover everything under the hood.
Highly recommended, I will be getting a second pair for the bumper soon!
