I would expect that to happen as the LED's point outward from the car so one side would look brighter if viewed from left or right since as most people know LED's are very directional lighting unless an efficient reflector is used. I also would not expect them to be that bright during the day unless it was some super high powered LED's or something. One thing I don't personally understand is why they reverted back to a 1157 instead of a 3157 bulb.

I know Bill38Jeep had them on his silver Jeep before that Bourgeois son of a b***h (JK) upgraded to a SRT8. I think he liked them from what I gathered from the posts.

I remembered him saying "They are both much brighter than stock lights, the LED's put out a lot more light."

Sorry you had a poor experience with them. How's your LED 3rd brake light and what do you plan to do for tail lights now? You gonna go with the tint as TJXJWJ so valiantly supported lol

If you have an 04 WJ, I would say convert your foglights to 3K HID, and your Lowbeam to any other 5k-12k bulb.. I got my HID's at HIDHeadlightkit.com... other than 1 and half week delivery wait, and zip ties that are too small.. With the way the 04 bumper looks, you can really make the front stand out with a simple lighting.. Could also color your grille(not the outer part) black.. If you want new headlights you could buy some from CarID, or Dash-z racing.com(I bought mine there) either way those are just some suggestions!

From my understanding he did like them, and when he went to the dark side () I bought them from him. They are good enough during the day, excellent at night. When I hit unlock and the blinkers blink the LEDs blink too, but not when just one turn signal is on. I too wish they stuck with the 3157 bulbs as I had some LED's that I would have liked to use for the reverse bulbs but I've decided for now I will stick with stocks until I make an LED order and get the 1157s.

Re: Next Upgrades??

I'll probably be getting new stock ones, and maybe slightly tint them, get some bright reverse bulbs. Anyone know where I can order the stock ones WITH the sockets? Whoever owned the car before screwed them up.
