Amazon Cree LED Headlights? Quadratec Gen II?

Anyone have any experience with the LX-LIGHT Black Cree LED headlights on Amazon for $90? 4 out of 5 stars with 417 reviews, but obviously Amazon reviews can be loaded up inaccurately. Anyone run these?


I was also thinking about the Quadratec Gen II Stealth LED's but didn't want to pay $300 if I don't have to. Are these worth the extra $200? Get what you pay for?

Thoughts? Suggestions?

I have been using Cree headlights and like them. You will have to adjust them much lower than factory sealed beams or you will be blinding folks.

Lighting is something where you get what you pay for. Between bulbs, optics, housing, wiring, relays, switches, etc. there is lots of R&D and quality parts that go in to a design or not. Lots of ways to screw things up. I run a more expensive LED set of headlights that are awesome and control the light perfectly. No unusual adjustments necessary.

These are the ones that I use and haven't had a problem with them over the last year.
They have a decent cut off line.

I have LX-Light headlights and fogs without halo's on my JK. I haven't posted an Amazon review yet because I wanted to put some time on them.

Headlights and fogs put out tons of white light. My issue is on the connectors and it's exactly a "get what you pay for" issue. Both the fogs and headlights have adapter harnesses.

Headlight adapter harness is not a solid watertight connection to the headlight. I improvised with some spot tie and stretch tape. I don't have pics handy, but can shoot some and add them in later.

Fog light adapter harnesses werent keyed to mate to the jeep side harness, so I had to trim the incorrect key lugs off on the adapter harness. To top it off, the adapter harnesses had different keying.

Would I buy them again knowing their shortcomings? Yes.
