Ok. My buddy with a TJ said he threw some silver star ultras in his stock hosing and he loves them. I feel ill love them even more with the hella ecoode and h4 capabilities. A lot of people love them so i might spring for them. Just for want to be let down going rom a 6k hid kit(in my g8) to these but i ended up with the IPF housing and 35K 5000K DDM HIDs.

I'm back in a JK!!!

And how did I spend my money?



JW Speaker 8700 Evos and 6145 fogs.
I had to splice on the supplied connector for the fogs on my '14 ---- and they flicker. I didn't scope the circuit yet and have a call in to Jason Speaker to see if the modulation will harm the LEDs.
You really can't notice the flicker unless you put a white board in front of them.
And the fogs are great, do what a foglight is supposed to do, fill in the gap between the vehicle and the spread of the 8700. They're for bad weather when you're going slow and need to find the lines and the curbs.

When you sell the Truck-lites, sell the harness with them. The next owner will need need them.

The lamps come with a standard H9 if there is such a thing. The H9 is the hottest stock wattage bulb out there. It is similar to a Philips X-treme Power in that it is a Xenon bulb with no color filter. The Stock H9 makes 2100 lumens compared with an H7 that makes about 1500.

Hella makes a Xenon blue version of the H9 in both stock wattage (65w) and high wattage (100w). There is even an All-Weather (yellow) version available. We stock all of these bulbs. A stock H9 goes for about $21. Go to our website for more info.

I had H9s in my Power Wagon, Dave.
They are all that and a side of fries...

I have a set of KC LED Headlights on order... I am pretty excited to get them, and get them installed. Damn things are on backorder until April 1.

Why the KCs over the TLs?

From the best that I can tell, the TLs and the KCs are effectively equal (cost, install, performance). I like being just a little bit different than others. I can't say that everyone has TLs, but essentially nobody has KCs.

I've read the KCs are rebranded Petersons. But I don't have firsthand knowledge.

They could be rebranded something, I don't mind. I feel confident that KC wouldn't attach their name to an inferior product. I am also more than positive the TLs are badass. I just want something different (although from 10' away they look the same).

Agreed - nice fogs! I went a bit further though and added the driving lights as well (paranoid about those deer!).

I just looked back up the thread a few posts and saw Bill's comment about the flicker. I bought the Trucklite anti-flicker harness because I wanted to wire my driving lights so they would be activated by the stalk / high beams. To do that, I would need smooth current to stop the relay from chattering. So I tapped in to the smoothed high beam circuit of the TL harness. I figured the extra draw of the relay control circuit should not upset the TL circuitry. Well it kind of works. Sometimes I can hear the relay getting chattery and sometimes not - which makes no sense. I have been meaning to call TL about it but not got to it yet. Most of the time there is no chatter (and no flicker) and then I'll hear a bzzzz from under the hood.

Anyway - for anyone who might be interested here is the diagram. There is a master switch inside the cab (on an SPOD unit) and the high beam circuit on the TL harness activates the relay. This way I can have fogs / low beam and driving lights / high beam and avoid blinding oncoming drivers with a flick of the stalk. I'll be interested to hear Bill's findings on the Speaker harness...

Edit - nm I read Bill does not have the anti-flicker harness just looking into effect of flickering on the LEDs

Sweet! I've been eyeing the pencil beams.
