If I lived somewhere that got a lot of snow, I might save my money for some heated units when someone makes them, otherwise well worth it.

I'm sorry I did not get that pkg but there is no way I trade my cold weather pkg for it...sissy I guess!

With a 10% discount to get the headlights ONLY w/o install is about $800! The installation instructions for the headlights is a nightmare! If you want them get them when you order! Oh ya if you live in PA don't give up that Cold Weather Pkg save your coffee money and get that too!!!!! I live in NE and as much as I wish for LED's all around would never trade for sissy seating and my hot wheel! Just keep it under 75mph and you can live with stock headlights

Go Jeep!!!

Are the LED lights worth it? YES
Ask yourself is a light worth $900? when I ask myself that its no way in hell. Get some pillar lights installed for off road use much cheaper and looks good on a wrangler.

Yes they are. I’d you don’t get them you will regret it and will be reminded of your mistake every time another JL drives by with them.

So, I've owned several vehicles, but not one with LED lights. I ordered my 19 JLUR with them, and wow. I can see for miles with just the low beams on. Yes, you can buy cheap ones for under $100 or even decent ones for a couple of hundred. You don't get the tail lights, marker lights, and they are almost always pointed weird. Most times they don't last half as long as advertised. For 2020 you can get them with a Sport. The are 100% worth getting if you plan to ever drive at night.

Well worth it. The OEM LEDs are the best headlights I have ever had on any vehicle. They put out more light with snow blocking them then clean halogens on my old JK.

Hi Everyone, long time reader first time poster. I’m in the process of ordering my 2019 Rubi (through Craig at Koons) and I’m wanted to get the collective opinion of the forum on two options. wondering if the LED headlights are really worth the extra $900. Won’t some kind of LED aftermarket lights be available forb1/5th the cost?

Also is the hardtop headliner worth it? I had a 97 Sahara back in the day and it didn’t seem that noisy with the hardtop.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks-mike

That depends how much you feel you are suffering without the LEDs. I would rather spent it on bumper or differential locker or a nice set of racing Hella auxiliary high beams . I know there are few of us that do not care for LEDs plus if you live in colder place where it snows your LEDs may be covered by ice and snow .

I’ve had LEDs and xenons on every vehicle except the Jeep (initially). Compared to halogens, LEDs will be brighter and offer more clarity. They are good lights but LEDs w/ halos aren’t worth $900. For that price they should be adaptive turning, auto high beams, and or heated. If you like the look/design/brand/warranty etc that’s a separate consideration.

Again I will say this I have LED head lights on all 4 of my vehicles and they are worth it. Very bright and clear. And remember LED headlights produce no heat. I also like the Halo, after market LED,s or ok but not great. Its your choice and your money. Dont get non-buyers remorse. Plus LED,s look AWESOME.

Well worth it! I’m nearing 50 and any extra light I can get in the road at night is much appreciated. These are the best factory LED lights I’ve experienced so far.

100% Worth It, Especially if you are older and your night vision is not what it use to be !
