It just goes in place of the adapter harness, not much of an install but I will take pics. Already got a shipping confirmation, won't have them until next Wednesday. I hope it works too!

Yeah I bought two, it appears to be each, but if I end up with two pairs I will report that back as well.

Glad to see these finally available and I'm curious to see what dstocks thinks of them.

I love my TruckLite headlights but I am a bit disappointed that we were told that we would be informed (by a TruckLite rep) when these would be available (back in January!) and there has been nothing but silence.

Been saving for the SMS harness. Not sure which way I'll go now...

Received my Trucklite Anti-flicker harnesses last night and got them installed. They are pretty substantial. Sorry for the blurry photo but you get the idea of the size.


I zip tied the adapters to the wiring harness to keep them from bouncing around.


The flicker is gone. Low Beam to High beam, change is instantaneous, High beam back to Low beam there is a half a second delay. Very acceptable in my world. Didn't get to test them much last night but my initial reaction to them is they do the job.

They are sold as singles so you have to purchase 2.

Why people keep blaming Trucklite for the JK's electronics is beyond me.

Maybe because its marketed toward the JK? If they were just headlights that someone figured a way to put in a JK that would be one thing.....but TL is marketing these as Jk specific, and selling them through every reputable vendor.....in my eyes that makes them accountable....if they know there is a problem, include this harness and bump up the price $50......this BS of selling individual parts for $45 really turns me off to a company.

Are they? I see far more Truck-Lite Phase 6 and 7s on buses than I do JKs.

They also work in TJs, CJs, FSJs, and a multitude of other non-Jeep vehicles that don't require any additional components.
