One of the most important upgrades you can do to your Jeep Wrangler JK is to upgrade the original headlights with new LED housings. The original halogen bulb headlights are one of the worst ever made and the JK practically … Continue reading How good are Vision X Vortex LED Headlights on the Jeep Wrangler JK?
The JW Speaker LED headlights model #6130 are definitely a unique piece of equipment! Some people describe the way the high beam looks by calling them “spider eyes” and the low beam resembles it’s older brother, the more common #8700. Regardless if you like them or not, these lights are top notch and no purchaser of them will be disappointed in the build quality or the light output.

Arguably the biggest attraction for myself was … Continue reading Back To The 50’s Car Show – Halogen Sealed Beams Everywhere!
They are finally here and ready to go into any vehicle with a 7″ round or 7×6″ Rectangular headlight! The Phase 7 LED headlight housings from Truck-Lite are dual beam (high/low), very bright (1,350 Lumens), and very efficient! They only draw 1.5 amps to operate and are about 1.5 times brighter than stock lights! I gotta admit though, I personally liked the look of the old headlights better. The new ones look a little too “stock-ish” because they use a plain looking, albeit complicated design, reflector housing that two small LEDs shoot into to create the main light output.
