LED's need heavy heatsinks to dissipate heat. These do not prevent ice build-up on the lenses. Attached are pickures of JW Speaker 8700 Evo2 headlights. Just a big, heavy heatsink. I believe these compare to the Mopar accessory LED headlights.

As one who got their order for Tank bounced back as unavailable….
If the color you like is available, order now!
It's way cheaper to switch out for LED lights than to have your Wrangler repainted.

So traditional halogen filament type of bulbs get hot on the surface which is what most of us think of when we reference head lamp getting warm. But LED's for whatever reason are cool on the surface but generate heat on the back end? What causes this? LED's draw so little current I can't fathom where the heat could possibly come from?

LEDs are cool to the touch because they generally don't produce heat in the form of infrared (IR) radiation.

The junction temp of an LED (light emitting diode) can reach 185 deg C in order to provide high lumen output. The diode has to have a heatsink to prevent overheating.

All this heat does nothing for the light surface area so in cold climates ice buildup can be a problem. Some LED manufactures heat the surface lens to prevent ice, the majority do not.

What Jeep does is unknown at this point to me.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I have a couple questions: I'm able to get the Chrysler affiliates discount through work. Is the tread lightly discount the same thing or is it better in any way? Also other than speakers is there any difference with the soundbar between the Alpine upgrade stereo and the base stereo system? Thanks everyone

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Planning on ordering a 2017, hopefully as soon as order banks open. That is unless they play color games and delay a new color that I love. My question is this...I just received a $500 incentive in the mail today. Incentive states that I must take delivery by October 3rd. I see production lunch for 17 starts mid sept correct? No way for me to take advantage of this incentive then is there?

If you have to take delivery...no. I lost out on my golden ticket when I ordered Homer. The incentives line wouldn't give me an extension either.

Most likely they mailed you the incentive is to help get rid of existing 2016's

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

I got one also yesterday, same deal. I also had planned to order a Rubicon HR as soon as the order banks open, but will wait now until I get my next golden certificate since one I got will be expired (Oct 3) before can take delivery of a 2017.
