Hid vs led

as we all know mopar products are very flakey with hid kits. I'm looking into the new led kits. Anyone experiment with led kits yet?

Re: Hid vs led

Guys, glad you asked this question because I have an answer. I went and spent 350 dollars on a really nice LED kit ha fit professionally installed, what a disappointment. The light were very bright but the problem is the jeep lens being used. The lens is very very thick. So the LEad light is being focused through a very thick lens so the light is being dissipated as its making its way through the lens. The result is basically the same output as your stockers but just s different shade of light. My wife actually said she thought it was worse.

I went back to the place that did the install and told them and they replaced with an HID kit. Last night was the first night driving with the new HID kit, wow, what a difference! There is absolutely no comparison between the LED kit and the HID kit IMHO. If you asking which one to go with I would go with the HID kit. I can see twice as far down the road with this kit vs the LED and stockers.

Hope this helps, please feel free to ask any questions.


Jason

Re: Hid vs led

I have a 2014 limited and interested in a led headlight conversion kit, can you provide the brand of the led kit that you had installed? I'm looking at the xenondepot kits hopefully someone has some feedback on them.
