Re: New headlights question

Patience...sometimes walking away for awhile and coming back later works for me . That plastic socket will pop off with enough massaging. A prybars should pop it off the ball stud so you can press it back into the frame on the Jeep.

The other lamp is installed the same exact way. So you're just fighting with those ball studs again. The only other thing I could suggest is maybe removing the grill so you have more places to grab...but a prybar wrapped in a towel between the lamp assembly and the front crossmember/frame should do the trick.

I don't have any pics of the wiring, but...it's relatively straight forward. If you know the current functions of each bulb, then you'll know what to tap into. For instance, there is a bulb in the lower corner on the fender side. It's a small 194 bulb. Take the wiring from that socket for anything you want to blink with your signals.

You then have leads going to the bulb that comes on with your parking lamps and headlamps. Splice into that one for your halos for instance...that way they are on whenever your parking lights or headlights are on. Rinse and repeat on the other side and you should be all set. Just make sure your splices are good and solid and you should be fine.

Mine are the "Smoked" Halo LED Headlights, not black(sometimes people get this confused).

My LED's are white, as well as my Halo's.. which I suspect they might be the CCFL(a lot brighter) that you can get with only the Chrome, and Black headlights.

Where did you order your headlights from? I got mine from Dash-Z racing(the glue was still sticky!)

*I did also shoot my pictures at night.. it was pretty dark too*

Any other questions feel free to PM me!
