A little update on the two JLUR that I am running the beamtechs on, i still love them, no problems throught the winter, we tend to get drier snow here but no problems icing up and not being able to see, not saying they wont ice up but was never a problem for me. some one asked about the light fan running after turning off the jeep and yes they do for a few seconds and yes its mildly annoying but not $900 dollars worth of annoying to me and not nearly as annoying as the stock halogens for me. Once adjusted properly I have had no problems with being flashed and have managed to miss all the deer on the sides of the road trying to sabatoge me. I would definately buy again. I have since put on a ARB bumper and winch so accessing certainly may be more of a challenge to remove the grill, hopefully dont have to deal with that for awhile. Have fun and stay safe.

Try wrapping the cord better. I have the 10k lumen with the fan and they fit just barely and are bigger than the 8k lumen model. You have to kind of wrap it. One issue I had also was the red seals of the light. Make sure you don’t accidentally have two on. (One wrapped on the new bulb and one from the old one

I figured it out, i kind of just shoved it to the side by the black part that comes out and just gave it a good shove and did end up getting it right after posting, but thank you!

Here’s a tip for anyone who has installed these Beamtech LED headlights: Confirm that your LED is positioned vertically, and the emitters are pointing horizontally. See pics below.

I’ve seen some posters on here mention: “make sure it’s clocked correctly”. This confused me at first, because the unit itself has three plastic locators - one of which is larger than the other two - and these fit into corresponding notches in the reflective housing. In other words, there is only one way to install the unit. HOWEVER, there may still be an adjustment that you will need to make - if yours is like mine - and wasn’t adjusted correctly at the factory.

The poorly translated directions do not explain how to make this adjustment. The tiny Allen wrench was the key (sorry for the pun) for me in figuring it out.

Here is one of my LEDs that happened to be adjusted correctly - right out of the box:

And here is the other one, that was skewed, right out of the box:

And here is a pic that shows the tiny Allen bolt that must be removed, then reinstalled, after you spin the black plastic collar. There are about 8 holes around that circular collar - so you can dial-in where you want the emitters to sit - since it only installs one way with those three locators:

Making this change definitely improved the light pattern for me. Hopefully it helps someone else, because I read somewhere on this forum that these cannot be adjusted - which is not correct!

Thank you for this! I found this thread while researching some LED options for the Jeep. Installed these yesterday and did have to adjust one of them. I haven't had a chance to take them out at night and adjust, but just seeing them in the garage shows a world of difference from the halogens.
