I bet if you could read the numbers off the componants under the srink wrap a solution could be made for a few bucks.

I'm sure I could but I have soo much other things to do. I just ordered a complete Wired HDH switch and complete Relay system paid tons of money but its one less thing I have to worry about
I'm focusing on my Evo coilover and stretch so I got plenty
Im happy to open up the harness though and take a look

Upload them to imgur.com

No need to sign up, no limit, and they autodelete files that nobody looks at for six months. Perfect for posting pics on message boards. Keep in mind they don't resize automatically like on some hosting sites so if you upload a huge image, it stays huge.

After scrolling through 20+ pages of this thread, i have to point out how everyone's judging the "quality" of light from the photos. I'm a photographer for a living, so I see things a little differently. You can take a photo of a dim light and overexpose it so it looks bright. Conversely, you can underexpose a bright light to make it look dark. I'm guessing that most of these comparison photos are shot with point and shoots.. or at best DSLRs with auto-exposure settings. Its really easy for a meter to be fooled into over/under exposing the light. Also, most camera's are set to auto white balance. This shifts the color of the light dramatically - blue/white will always look brighter. I can shoot a yellow tungsten bulb and make it look white.. which looks brighter. Just sayin.. Really the only useful information given in these photos is the light spread pattern (it should be nice and even with no hotspots).

That said, if anyone has access to all the headlights at once, it'd be nice to shoot some comparison photos using the same MANUAL camera settings shot with the same ambient light (not at dusk since the light is fleeting).

I volunteer for the task if anyone's willing to send me some lights

For example, here's a night photo overexposed to look brighter that your eye would see… The photography term is "night as day". Notice the stars in the "blue sky".

Hey guys I didn't have a chance to read the entire thread, but I am wondering if there is now a consensus on what the best or most popular light option for the JK is?

Depends on your budget.Trucklite's 2nd Gen. LED's are supposed to be very solid and very bright.

I have the Truck-Lites as well and love them.

JW Speaker are the other popular LED headlights. They beat the Truck-Lites in performance but they are about 2X as expensive!

They're not really popular.... just very well made.
