Hahaha! Not that I know of. I guess you will just have to crawl each thread individually!

Thanks Bud! I am hoping to get them finished and installed on Thur.

Here is a link to what I got:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/130584302688...84.m1436.l2649

The price has been slowly increasing over the months, but they are still cheaper than OEM

So a couple of things I forgot to mention. First in case you didn't notice a small detail. The wife suggested I arc the line going up the side of the high beam instead of cutting it straight up. I liked that idea so I went with it. I think it looks better when viewed from the side or at an angle. Makes it look like the circular lamp continues where it actually doesn't.




The second thing that I forgot to take a pic of before hand, is the LED strip. When I got them they were covered in a clear silicon similar to the ones I used for my rock lights. I had to peel it all off before I could paint them up!

Example, before:





Actual, after:

Thanks guy! These will be finished and install soon. I don't think I will be doing another set, at least not soon. Although I will have my OEM set that will come off the Jeep, opening those is not fun. The aftermarket ones are so much easier!

ryanwhiteaker what color is your WK? If it is black or dark khaki those would look great and be much easier than opening and painting yours. My brothers has a dark khaki and I told him to just get those black ones.

Looking forward to seeing them installed! My WK is black so its an easy job when all I have to do is buy them. The problem is having that huge ugly orange lens on the side. I wish they would have painted that as well. These are still SO much more attractive then all the other aftermarket WK headlights I've seen. They're all so tacky looking.

I am sure they are easy to take apart. Then you can paint the side marker. Or you can just paint the lens over the top of the marker!
