Reviews for Quadratec Premium Heated LED Projector Beam Headlights for 07-18 Jeep Wrangler JK
Outstanding product. Drove in wet heavy snow and no buildup. The factory LEDs on my 2018 JK would build up with snow and ice so much so that I'd need to pull over to clear them. Not a problem any more.
I have had them for about 18 months now brighter then any other great purchase!!
The lights are awesome, true plug and play. The best, 20 to 25 min. Install
Great product! So easy to install. The heating element is on all the time but product works great. Brings a lot of light.
Hard to say if its a 4 or a 3.
Overall fit up and everything is as you expect, its a headlight, not rocket science.
However after installing and putting the front back together, then testing (in that order unfortunately) I find that the DRL, and high beam on one headlight isn't working. Switch the headlights around to double check it isn't my wiring for some reason. Yep, got a set where one's DRL and the high beam wasn't working.
Customer service gets 5*/5*. I have a brand new pair on the way, so at least one of those two has to fully work, right? Haven't received the replacements yet.
Feelings are mixed, low beams are ok, will continue to do some adjusting, High beams seem great, haven't tried out the heating component.
Installation of older JK may require you to replace your female H13/9008 receptor as it may not work after removal, my experience with the driver side. Otherwise install is pretty simple. Loosen grill but did not disconnect turn signal and had plenty of room. Will follow with more feedback on Ice/Snow conditions.
Great price for the combo kit. Can't go wrong picking these up. Easy install, and makes all the difference in the world at night. Great paring between Quadratec and JWS. Worth the cost picking up both tail and headlights at the $600 price point.
I purchased these for the heated lens. I was hoping to eliminate ice and snow buildup on the headlights of my 2010 JK. I had been running JW Speaker lights prior to installing these. My first experience driving in the snow with the heated headlights was not as good as I had expected. I drove for an hour, in 25 deg. f, dry snow conditions. When I arrived at my destination I was disappointed to find that the heated headlights had ice buildup on the lower half of the headlight lens. Based on my previous experience with LED headlamps, I would say that the heated lens helped somewhat, but not as well as expected. A plus for this light is output is good on low beam, very good on high beam.
I was running Hella e-spec H4 headlights with 80w/100w bulbs. These put out the same amount of light with literally 1/4th the power consumption. When I had the Hellas fired up I couldn't even pump air into my tires at idle, the voltage dropped down too far and the pump cut off (low voltage protection circuit in the pump). Plus it burnt out H4 bulbs at a ridiculous pace, leading at least once to me having to bum a bulb off of someone else during an offroading trip.
So how do they compare to the Hellas? Well, one star off because the light pattern is slightly messy compared to the Hellas. Hella has had 100 years to get reflector design down right for incandescent bulbs and they've nailed it. However, these are definitely good enough, and tons better than stock (which was downright dangerous). As a bonus, the low beam cutoff hits exactly at the same point as it did with the Hellas, meaning I didn't need to mess with my headlight adjusters to keep from blinding people.
Probably the easiest upgrade ever. Night and day difference! Light travels much farther down the road. Criticism: heating element is white and not vertically symmetrical, not a big deal cosmetically as far as I care. Everything lined up. No anti-flickering harness or H4 adapter plug needed. I did not need to adjust my headlights.
