Any one tried the Truck-Lite 7 Round LED Headlamp yet?

Good Day:

Haven't been able to find this with my search.

I'm looking to upgrade the headlights on my 08 JK 4-door. The *** [Edit: actually Philips Visionplus +50] improved things a bit, but I want more.

Truck-Lite 7” Round LED Headlamp - OK4WD

$330 each? These seem awfully pricey, so I'd love to avoid being the guinea pig and hear a few success stories before I fork over the $$$.

Anyone try them yet? I'd like to know how much better the lighting is and how hard they were to install. Apparently they need a different electrical plug, but that seem's doable to me.

Find Waterboarder's link to his Cibie upgrade; I think it cost less.
FWIW, if you installed Sylvania Silverstars and think it was an improvement, you're probably mistaken; they put out much less light that your eyes can use to focus. Narva Silverstars work but I don't think they come in an H13.
Phillips makes a couple of bulbs that are good --- Visionplus +50 and +80. Both are Eurospec.

My MINI Cooper uses H13 also; I have Philips Visionplus +50 bulbs in both.
Driving down the road in the Mini, it looks like daylight; same bulbs in the Jeep and I'm wondering if I remembered to turn the lights on....

Must be the reflectors or something.

Oops, you're right, I actually switched to the Philips Visionplus +50. OP edited...

No luck on the search though, suggested key words?

Thanks,
