Well, like you, I never liked them and still don't no matter how new and exciting they are. I see the same, little dots, like some cheap flashlight from Walmart. I guess we can't stop progress, if this is what they call progress.

Pretty soon, well have LED lighting in our homes, schools and at work. Little dots all over the place.

Doubt it, CFBs have similar efficiency at less cost. The whole point of "cold light" is more lumens on less power which means smaller wires, smaller aternators, less load on the engine, lighter vehicles, more MPG.

Look at the front of this concept Overland, then look at the front of the summit in the spy photo's trace the lines of the lower front fascia and we have a similar look without camo!

You have an old picture on the bottom this was from SEMA in 2011 and that car there has 22 inch wheels and a body kit it is also lowered about 2 inches.

So why weren't the SRT8 wheels closer to that? They look great!

The sema jeep would have made for the perfect SRT JEEP. I would be driving one right now.

I personally like the production SRT bumper better myself. But I would like to see that bumper available to order as a appearance package on lower trim levels.

They are brighter, much more efficient, last wayyyyy longer, can make very attractive lighting designs (Audi for example), instant on/off, virtually never have to be replaced, and pretty to look at. It's time the Grand Cherokee moves onto LED lights. It's not 1990 anymore, or in Jeep's case 2013.
I'm not picking on you, just kind of curious why someone wouldn't like then.
They're also faster. Incandescents take about .2 seconds to be fully lit, whereas LEDs are fully lit essentially instantly -- which could probably be considered a safety feature.
