Which ones? And do you like them? They work/perform like they're supposed to?
I picked them up through 'offerup' - from a local F150 owner that couldn't get them to work. I confirmed they were 7443's, spot-tested them with a 12v, and walked away with a pretty good deal.

They work very well. The only unexpected component is that the "switchback" doesn't interleave the white through the amber cycling(*). When the turn signal engages, the white LEDs turn off. The whites return about 1 second after the turn/hazard cut off.

The biggest takeaway is that the turn signal indicator with the switchback LED is now crisp and sync'd with the amber halo rings on the LED headlights and (halo) LED fog lights. The original light would lag quite a bit behind the headlamp/fog light. It was quite noticeable, but now a non-issue.

So overall I really like the bright white, indicators are all sync'd up now, and I'm very happy with the difference.

(*) Although I expected the white to interleave with the amber when the turn signal is engaged, the manufacturer page for the product states that discontinuing the white during the turn signal is intentional for better visibility. I can live with that.

My Quake headlight RGB halo switchbacks behave the same way. When the turn signal is detected the RGB halo turns off and the amber halo is turned on and off from the turn signal.

Barricade offroad sliders, a little more protection than the factory rubi rails and a step. The 37's make it a bit high for climbing in and out of. No bolt issues thank God.

I'm considering the same ones and also in Sting Grey over here. Could you post another angle, showing more of the JL? Thank you..

Are there two? Do you have the part number?
Stock is one piece. The K&N replacement comes in two pieces to make it easier to install since it’s not as flexible as stock.

Completely filthy after 6000 miles. Swapped out to the k&n since it’s reusable

Did you use your ac a lot? I always have my windows down so I'm curious if mine would be filthy at 9k

Installed the Mopar hinge gate reinforcement until LoD arrives.... oh yea on another note.... had to install another (3rd) license plate holder.... it seems the factory snap in gets easily damaged from Black trails.. and that's my dad in the pic I spend as much time as possible with him... (84)

Retired from Corrections....I have stories.
Well shit.... 40K miles, and I forgot that I even had a cabin filter...I may need to check that out later today.. haha!
I jumped into my buds JLUR this summer and said WTF, your air conditioning suck. He took it into the dealer to get it serviced. Yeah, his cabin filter weighted 4 pounds. It was so packed with dust and dirt, that air would hardly pass through it.

He is usually the tail for our trail runs. He is in the dust most of the time.
