According to that they're the same housing. So...

any reason that wouldn't work?

Dunno how the square peg in round hole will look. But folks have been using fog lights designed to fit a late JKs, so it could work.

i appreciate the link. i looked at those and was considering doing it. but i'm really pleased with the output of the duallys on my TJ. so i'm going to try them on the WK2 and put a bigger pair of LED's on the TJ.

if i can get smilar performance at half the price... i don't think you'll notice the shape. especially being so close to the ground.



i don't think thats a bad look.

Hey Ryan, long time no see (my father and I stayed in a buddy of yours R/V overnight at Rausch about 5 years ago).

I have a WK2 on order (Not for wheeling) and have been lurking over here

I've used a couple types or replacement LED bulbs in the stock housing without flicker.

So I got them in. There's no gaps. There's a black filler plate to fill in the Round hole.





first impressions are tough to tell. I have them adjusted way too high. I spent too much time trying to get them super flush with the bezel and not thinking about how u wanted them aimed. They're definitely going to be lightyears better than stock. But the cut off will clearly not be as good as the jw. Then again. At under 200 bucks for the setup. It's significantly cheaper.

Too beat to readjust tonight. I'll mess with them tomorrow.

There is no adjustment screw like the JW SPEAKER 6145? I have these, they fit perfectly and the light output is amazing. Here is a picture against sun's glare. However the price of these went up a lot after I purchased them per manufacturer's requirement.

now these are better than the OEM's? Or are they being changed just for the sake of being different? I feel like the light output of the stockers are very good (2014)

The difference is day and night. My headlights are 5K HID's on SRT housings.

These is aimed at a wall about 35-40 ft away. I turn them on at about second 3.

Way more output than stock.

The jws have a better cut off for sure. But I think I'm 180 bucks into lights and brackets vs whatever the jws were. I'm pretty sure I'm less than half. But I can't remember what the jw came to.


There is adjustment for height built into the bracket. But I got the so flush to the bezel I can't tilt them down at all. I need to back it up a little bit to allow for adjustment.
