Bright Upgrade
J.W. Speaker’s newest LED headlamp, the 8700 Evolution, is a 7-inch-round direct-replacement headlamp that builds upon the successes of the company’s best-selling Model 8700 to suit an even wider range of vehicles, including ’07-’12 Jeep Wranglers with no modifications necessary. The 8700 Evolution combines a full array of LEDs with high-tech optics to maximize the amount of useful light that is emitted and is both DOT and ECE compliant. The beam pattern of the 8700 Evolution is designed to minimize glare for oncoming traffic, while at the same time placing an even spread of light where drivers need it the most. Featuring a heavy-duty die-cast housing and a choice of black or chrome bezels, the 8700 Evolution comes with a four-year limited warranty and is made in the USA.

Streak Eliminator
PIAA Si-Tech Flat Silicone Wiper Blades incorporate PIAA’s patented silicone technology, which continually reapplies an active silicone coating on the windshield to ensure smooth and quiet operation. The frameless, low profile, aerodynamic design helps to deliver streak-free performance by creating more pressure points across the entire length of the blade and helps to eliminate snow and ice build-up. Si-Tech’s blade formulation is heat and ozone resistant, which helps extend blade life and maintain performance.
