Headlight pic request - NEW style

Hey gang,
Anybody have FIRST PIC style headlights on their WJ that they can post pics on vehicle with lights / DRL turned off... say view from front and partial side... seller doesn't have much to speak of with "on vehicle pics". Want some good views on actual vehicle before deciding on purchase...yes, I'm being difficult.

The SECOND pic ones are very SIMILAR but NOT the ones I'm interested...observe some differences..just posting/ pointing them out so people don't post pic of THAT specific style.
Thanks.

Well I finally bit the bullet and ordered these today, will post pics of them on my Laredo / different angles / on and off etc.
I like how both lights are squared on these with the full length DRL compared to others....however I like how the other's top right corner is slightly pointed instead of the smooth rounded corner.

I think they look very cool. I almost bought a pair of something similar last year. Aren't they around $300 a pair? I'll be watching for you pics.

These were $235 via Ebay...I haggled with them to "send me an offer" / price match similar ones at lowest price etc and even waited a bit to see if Ebay would do one of their 15% off days...all of course to no avail. Normally I don't splurge on higher priced non-necessities but rolled with it anyway. A couple other sellers there do have them for around $300.... good luck with that
Arriving tomorrow so mounted pics of them by Friday at the latest.
Here's a pic of them photoshopped on a 04 Limited (the DRL looks too white / bright to be actual)
I think they'll make the WJ look like a 2022 model !

Personally, in the new lights (the first picrptures), I don't like the strange shaped amber light, it seems "hammered" inside.

/\ Yeah I was trippin on that too at first, but I guess they did that to add to the more aggressive look of the whole light, which is kind of growing on me now.
On a side note, in the day in age we're in where Corolla's and mini vans look like Ferrari's I felt I needed to give the WJ a bit of a facelift...can't be outdone by a Corolla right?!?!
Then again it's one thing to have an aggressive front end but some of the cars today are taking that to an extreme where they almost look demonic !.....thinking that car needs an exorcism

I’ve been considering some of these as well. Let us know what you think. I hope they hold up longer than the plastic surface on my aftermarket OEM looming ones. These started badly oxidizing after 18mo!

Here's the link:

"I hope they hold up longer than the plastic surface..." There are buff and seal kits out there... being what I paid for these I'm going to make sure and use one of those to buff and then put back on a protective clear shield when that time comes.

Here's another one....better pic with all lights on.... as mentioned I really like the square low beam on these versus the round style...along with full length DRL.

Very nice. Do you get more light in night time driving?

So the seller is selling lights for a specific model vehicle and does not even have pictures? That's enough to suggest to me this might be cheap Chinese junk, with no follow up if there are problems.

Actually they're about the same if not a hair less bright surprisingly, but since I got them strictly for their looks / cosmetic upgrade I'll roll with that.

On the buff kit suggestion, yes of course I am familiar with and have used those. My issue with the non-OEM but look OEM headlights I have now appear to have the defect *inside* the plastic which of course is non-buffable if that’s a word. If it’s not I just invented it!

So hence my query on how well/ how long the plastic on these great looking lights seems to be holding up. If it’s only 12-18 mo like mine I’ll pass. Too pricey for that short period. My current lights were $75 or so for the pair and at 18mo thats $4.2/mo which I will accept. $300/18mo= $16.7 and I personally don’t think that’s worth it.

I am hoping yours last FAR longer than my cheap ones. Then I’ll be happy to buy some also. They do look great.
