Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

I am getting in a couple more weeks a 2016 JKUHR and I know the first thing I want to go is the headlights... Anyone have any suggestions for a replacement LED kit for the JKU??

I have looked at the Oracle and JW Speaker ones and they both look great... What would be the pros/cons between these or any others that are out there??

I haven't pulled the trigger myself yet, but IMHO, the heated ones seem to be the better in "real life" ones.

I was looking at those but have been hearing the heating elements don't help much in heavier weather. If you dont get much snow/ice they would be good otherwise not worth the extra coin.

I have installed Trucklite and they are perfect. My Jeep has over $15K in upgrades and this is the best upgrade by far. You can actually see where you are going.

Re: Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

Ok after much investigating, I am settling on the MOPAR LED's made by JW speaker. I want these because they are made specifically for Jeep and even have the Jeep word on them. I have a friend who works for Chrysler and can get them for $680 for me too

Re: Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

I just ordered the heated trucklites for my 16 Hard Rock. Hope they are as good as folks say. I figured I'd start my parts pile with them till jeep starts the Granite production.

Re: Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

I was looking at those but they have the dreaded X pattern and scattered light.

Re: Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

The JW Speaker Evolution J's are the best.

Be sure to get a set of 6145 fogs as well, they add a HUGE amount of light directly in front of the Wrangler.

The only thing about those is the ugly, ricey half halo. Id rather go with the Gen 2' non J's without the half halo

Re: Any Advice for LED headlight replacements

The more I think about it then more I like the Peterson/KC LEDS better. Nice light pattern, very bright and look better then the projector beam headlights.

Yea I like those fogs but they are not plug n play. Splicing required. For $350+ i want plug n play!
