Hey, do these LEDs lose brightness over time?

I would suspect that LED lights would not get as hot as halogens, due to lower wattage/power draw. Is this not the case?

This is true. LEDs do not heat up and can be dangerous if you live in a snowy area.

The LED themselves don't get hot, but the boards they're attached to do! They need large heat sinks or fans to help dissipate the heat.

This is NOT the case. Touch the lens of your Jeep LED headlights...they are definitely NOT cold.
There are enough threads covering this. Folks can read up and decide for themselves. It's not really an issue for those living down south.

DANGEROUS sounds a bit extreme lol
Pretty sure it wouldn’t be legal in Canada and most northern states if it was the case lol
I stand by my comment. The Wrangler's lights are in a recessed cavity that can accumulate ice/snow more easily than a flush mounted design. I prefer heated LEDs like the those made by Truck-Lite.

Oh well, I guess I’ll be one of the crazy Canadians ordering the OEM LEDs while you need heated LEDs through these NJ snow storms lol

I saw those heated trucklites...if I end up having a problem with the OEMs I may switch to those, but they don't look as nice or as bright as the OEMs do. Sigh.

Is there anything you can spray on the headlights to keep ice from forming on it?

Agree about the OEMs...They look great. I wonder if Rain-X would help.

Anyone else feel that the running halo, ring led lights in the head lights are a bit to dull or dim when compared to running led lights in the fenders? I feel as if a brighter ring led would give the jeep more aggression... Thoughts?
