Hi, I currently have the stock lights below the LED Package that jeep offers and they really do suck, not going to lie. I even bought HID Bulbs but its the same thing but just white lol and not to mention the high beams barely do anything.
So I need to upgrade, especially where I live with all the deers and what not.

What do you guys think?

Should I get the Morimoto Super7

I have yet to see a review on here of the “fake” JL LED lights. Thats not to say they dont exist tho...
I was going to hold out for the true Mopar LED lights but then there would be the fussing with non LED lighting wiring ( I have a Sport S) and also decided I want LED now and not wait AND pony up a thousand bucks for the Mopars when they are finally available. So, I went with the Amazon brackets and 7” LEDs. Total was about the same cost for the “fake” Mopar LEDs. Actually more because I bought a soldering iron and heat shrink.
Good luck on whatever you choose!

I replaced my halogens with the inspired engineering evo II lights. Amazing light. I like the fact that they have additional lights at the top and bottom that can be configured as an amber turn signal. I intend on changing my fenders (iPhone literally corrected to “gender”) to a set of genrights at some point and will lose the factory turn signal lamps.

Those low beams have a very nice cutoff.

HidProjectors what I have. A lot more expensive but you get what you pay for. Photo 4 is your normal low beam light operation, everything else is just for fun. Unlimited light color options. Can do a light cut off photo if you are interested.

Amazon adapter brackets run around $60+ the Morimoto/ hidprojector buckets are $150-200. Depending on which headlight/brand you go with you may have to spend an extra $10 on a harness to make it plug and play.


I think the Super 7s look cool in the recessed grille. The TitanOffroad lights would look better to me if the housing was blacked out. They are also 7” with adapter rings (don’t remember if that’s included in the price but it’s identical to most of the amazon brackets) Member @2k2wranglerx has something similar to these lights and they look good on his vehicle.

I also have the HIDProjectors in our 2018 JL sport and we are VERY happy with them...My set cost me around the $600.00 range when purchased they were having some type of holiday sale special...GREAT PERSONAL SERVICE & quick turn around...
(we live in PA where ice build up is a problem in the winter with LED's...NO PROBLEM with the HIDProjectors in the winter)

Since I have a sport s would I need one of Greg’s adapters to make the DRL work on these lights? They look really good, how do you like them so far?
