Finally!!! a New Truck-lite, 7" LED, Complex Reflector

I know there are a bunch of threads for headlights but I couldn't find these in the search. Basically a new LED headlight from Truck-Lites. Anyone using these. They look pretty sweet! I don't know whether to go with the original 7'in LED's or these new ones. Check it out...

They have some beamshots on JKF. Looks much better than their older ones. I'm not sure if there's an improvement over other aftermarket headlights (such as Hella's or Cibies), but the cool factor with decent performance certainly appears to be there. Price seems to be around 550-650.

I think he might be hard pressed... he sold the JK for a powerwagon.

DO you have a link to the thread? Much appreciated. I know they won't be much brighter if at all. I just want a good spread of light with no gaps, I love the color if LED's. I have night vision issues and so far LED's are the easiest on the eyes for me over HID and others.

Looks like they're taking styling and design cues from JW Speaker.

+2 I'm interested in how you like them. Stock lighting is pretty poor and once you lift your JK, forget it. You might as well hold flashlights out the window!

You can see pictures of the lights in one of the other forums on this site.

I think they look great. Truck-Lite does not sell directly to consumers, so now we need to find out which supplier has the best price. Anyone know?
