8700 Evolution JW

I know this might be a little premature, but does anybody have any positive feedback on the new JW LED headlamp? They say it's a direct plug-and-play kit, no grinding and it will bolt right in. I really kind of want to put this headlamp with an Oracle halo ring on my Orange crush Jk

Need more info to decide

I think that the previous JW 8700 that required modifications for the install were a big improvement over the stock headlights. I'd love to give the Evolutions a try but they are quite pricey. I think I also read that there was a flicker issue on the older JW 8700's when installed in a Jeep. I think I will wait to see what issues, if any, still exist.
For the money, I want them to really be plug-n-play!

They have done away with the fan feature which would melt snow and ice allowing it to fit without any cutting. It looks like the only other requirement would be their wireing harness.
I think they look bomb and it looks relatively easy to install. My only question really is longevity.
