About every time I drive after dark some is flashing bright lights at me even when my brights are not on. After the second time it happened last night on my way home it got a bit annoying. Are TJ headlights unusually bright or is it just the placement of them on the front of the Jeep that makes them appear so? I hate for people to think I'm being a rude driver when I generally try to be courteous.
im always getting the same thing, if the jeep is lifted then your headlights are higher too and it will appear to oncoming traffic that your high beams are on. also they could be misadjusted and aimed a little high. eiher way adjusting them down should solve the problem
If you get flashed, flash back with the off road lights. They will think you turned off all lights when the off road light go off. I get flashed sometimes when I'm pulling my fifth wheel behind the F-250, but I'm not adjusting for that. The oncoming traffic will have to just get over it.

When I get all my factory forward facing lights going, I usually get flashed - even though I am running them in the legal fashion (connected to the low-beam circuit). Even when I was "bone-stock" people would flash their high-beams at me - and I couldn't see through the darkness!!!
When I started pulling my trailer, it was continous high-beam flashing - even without all my driving lights going. I have even been flashed with my DRL on - and they are half-bright from normal. It probably isn't you - but - a good way to test (if you think that you have the lights aligned properly) would be to have a friend drive towards you and tell you if it seems ultra-bright or not.

I have EXTREMELY bright headlights and never get flashed.You need to adjust your lights until you can't see the drivers face coming at you.Thats what i go by,if i can see their faces i know my headlights are blinding them.
