The Truck-Lites are installed.
As I suspected, they flicker when run with the supplied H13-H4 adapter. The Jeep's PWM cycles quickly enough that you don't notice it with a halogen bulb due to the physics of burning filaments. But the ultra-rapid start/stop capabilities of an LED causes them to respond to the pulses by an obvious flicker. It is much more noticeable on highbeam.
I removed the pigtails and used an auxiliary harness to provide power. It uses the passenger side stock H13 plug to trip a pair of Bosch relays and draws power directly from the battery. The power is clean and steady.
The Truck-Lites appear very robust and fit in the cans perfectly. Install took about 15 minutes; aiming was completely painless as well due to their dramatically sharp cut-off.
We'll see how they perform tonight.
after drivng with LED lights on other vehicles, i like my deltas more. the humvees out here suck. the light is patchwork and different on each humvee. maybe they are all installed wrong or not aligned properly. still the light isnt close to my deltas on my JK. plus the cost of those LED lights. vendors much think we **** gold with diamonds as nuts and corn.
cant see your picks. .mil networks block all free image hosting sites. jeepforum.com has attachments. they there forever and quicker than any free site for hosting images.
looks like you are heading in the right direction and taking your time. they may be better. will you be a Jeep Beach this year? I'd like to compare lights.
The old ones were an atrocity and weren't worth considering.
I feel the same about Deltas, for that matter...
So far so good with the new set; no judgments until nightfall though.
No Jeep Beach for me; I lived in Florida for 20 years and had enough of it. I'll be roadtripping to CO/NM in May though and will post about the trip on Expedition Portal soon. We're going to have Little Guy Trailers build a custom teardrop for us and this will be the big shakedown trip for it.
My Conqueror will be for sale soon too (for anybody that's had their eye on it).
