Truck-Lite vs J.W Speaker LED Headlights

If somebody is thinking to upgrade their headlights, I made a little video comparing 2 big brands

So which do you like better in person?

The pictures I like the truck lights best, the jw seems almost too bright up close.

To me the JW look too bright up close and little to no difference between lo and high beams along the side of the road.

The stock JK lights look worse than my stock TJ lights... that's interesting if actually true, and quite sad.

Truck Lites have gone through 2 versions of their lights that I am aware of. The first set got very poor reviews from Jeeps owners; so, I assume this is the 2nd version?

I'm running the JW Speaker 8700 Evolution, which is what he seems to use in the video. The video shows a pretty fair comparison of all three.

The JW Speaker does have a far cast, leaving less light directly in front and to the sides. The 6145 Fog Lights make up this difference.
The High Beam is a brighter, higher pointing driving beam, you don't gain much more to the sides as those separate emitters dont change.

You can see the Trucklites have a lot of artifacts in the light pattern, which bother some people. Still far outperforms the stock.
