I was just reading an article about how cheap Chinese products are flooding Amazon. I've started to be more careful about products I buy from Amazon.
I agree, but at that price I figured I would try them out, if I waited to save for the JW speakers I would probably had kept draining my "toy" fund before I had all the cash together. So many toys to get for this truck.

I can tell you they have been on the truck for 5 months, I use them all the time, lots of driving in dark mountain passes, and not a single problem yet.

Even if I had to replace them every 6 months, it would be three years before I equalled the cost of the JW Speakers.
I know, false economy, but at least I can reap the benefits now while I save for the better lights.

In the meanwhile I can save for the real important toys I want, like Mopar rock rails.

They are AWESOME! installed them in 15minutes, not a sharp a cut off as the Speakman lights, but better than the factory H24's.

Bright as all get out!

Hmm...nice find! I am contemplating these as well...have any pics?

Re: 2011 LED Fog light question

Are those suparee direct plug and play or will I need a harness adapter? I don't want to cut the stock harness

Re: 2011 LED Fog light question

Looks like I'd need a 5202 to h16 to make it true plug and play. Cool!

When I was making the PIAA LED fog lights 'plug-n-play' I took the OEM bulbs and broke off the glass (wrapped in a towel) and kept the base. Then removed the filament and crimped wires onto the two terminals that used to be inside the glass. I had slid some shrink tubing onto the wires beforehand and then covered each wire/terminal to ensure no shorting. I then used a hot glue gun to fill in the socket (the side that used to have the glass) to ensure the connections would not break off.

I tried to solder the wire onto the terminals, but it wouldn't stick. I took some simple insulated crimp barrel connectors and stripped off the insulation so I was left with just the metal barrel.

For my JW Speaker bulbs I bought some adapters since they had an H10 connector (I think) and I needed to go to the funky OEM PSX25W (or what-ever-the-hell it's called).

I cut and soldered the stock harness, but that's the kind of thing I used to do for a living.

Amazon sells all kinds of adapters, I'm sure you can email the seller and he'll tell you what to get to make them plug and play.
