No Blinking LED Lights - Randy’s Electrical Corner

I know I was just going on and on about LEDs last month. I promise to stop— no, no, really. But this came to me, and I know that Jp has a lot of readers with the ’07-up Wranglers, so at the risk of LEDing you guys out, I thought I should bring them to you sooner rather than later. And don’t give me no back talk neither, ’cause I know where your mama parks your house. Some guys with JKs are having problems with their new aftermarket headlights flickering when they are turned on. I am not sure what does that, some trickery in the JK with a little wizard controlling the smoke in the wires, I think. I have had people ask me many times how to slay the wizard, and I have been looking for a little dragon to send in there after him, but until now I have never found one.

The newer LED headlights from Truck-Lite are great. Sure, they are a bit pricy, but the light output and beam pattern are both great. They are the last set of headlights you’ll ever need. No more changing those dang bulbs out two or three times a year, just put ’em in and forget ’em. It doesn’t matter if they are the rectangles or the round ones, these new lights work. Except for sometimes in JKs when they don’t. So when Truck-Lite contacted me to tell me about both the problem and their easy plug-and-play fix, I figured I had to tell you guys about it.
