Whoever breaks the code on this LED issue is going to make some money given the delays with the OEM LEDs. I just saw a post that said they may not be available until 2019!...
This is CORRECT! This is what my parts dealer told me when he inquired about LEDs for my Sport.

The headlight connectors are removable from the back of the headlight but you need two people to release the latch from outside and one to turn it . My project is done. You rock Americonium
I sure would like to know how you got that out. Did you have to take the headlight assembly apart? Mine dropped into the headlight housing when I released it.

Thanks to Teghogh, the wiring has been fished out of the headlight buckets. I've painted the brackets I made and final install should be tomorrow.

I have a couple questions. Is the headlight you use a JK LED headlight? Im trying to figure out what I need to do this conversion: HD light bracket, fabricated bra
I still don't know how much these brackets are going to cost me. Once I find that out, I'll pass it along.
Count me in. Great work!

@americonium I am fairly handy, but i have no relationship with any metal fab shops and I'm sure they would bend you over the barrel. I would legitimately be interested in buying some brackets from you.

I'm using a seven inch headlight, and yes, that is compatible with the JK.
You'll need a pair of lights, an HD adapter, the one I'm using is in a link somewhere in this thread, an adapter plate, and possibly an anti-flicker harness . I should know more by the end of tomorrow.

Done. Lights light. No flicker. With adapter harnesses. Engineer running. Just need some darkness to confirm.

Whenever you figure out if/how you are going to sell these, please let me know. In the meantime, I may attempt to copy your setup. I give myself a 10% chance of pulling it off :)
