In the Jeep and Harley communities, one of the latest hot topics are replacement LED headlights. The two most popular items being the JW Speaker 8700 and the Truck-Lite 27270CC 7″ round replacement LED headlight housings.

Watch this video review of the Truck-Lite headlights I did where I compare it to the JW Speaker variant. You’ll get a good idea about this new headlight and if you think the JW Speaker 8700 is worth the money when compared to the Trucklite product:

  1. This is not a fair comparison of LED headlights and fails to show actual installed light output. I have seen other comparisons that are more compelling that I was able to make a informed decision to purchase the Phase 7 LED headlight. It is by far a superior lighting source for my Harley and with the 4 1/2″ passing lights the road is exposed and I feels safer in the dark travelling thhe highway.

    • Hi Dave, thanks for your input.

      When you say you feel “safer” in the dark, what are you comparing it against? Of course the Truck-Lite setup versus the factory lighting would be much better. But if you mounted the JW Speaker LED headlight along with the JW Speaker 4.5″ driving lights also, then you would see there is no comparison between the two. For starters the JW Speaker combo would give you about 2,800 Lumens of light output with a much more full beam pattern. If you go with the Truck-Lite combo you then will only be working with about 1,500 Lumens of light output, not to mention the Truck-Lite beam pattern is more “shadowy” than the others.

  2. Will the 5 3/4 73273-11a HD LED motorcycle headlight made buy JW Speaker fit into a par 46 headlight bucket for a four headlight system in a car ?
