    I have a 2016 JK and the stock headlights suck. I found a set of OEM LED Headlights on eBay. The ad describes them as 2007-2018. I am leery because I thought the LED's became an option in 2017? Would they fit my JK? I've seen aftermarket lights that say they would require a bracket for 2017 models.

    Thanks for the link. I've been reading reviews and the one thing that keeps popping up is the bright spot. Some say it's to focused, and like driving in a tunnel, others says it's off center and can't be adjusted. A few reviewers complained about flickering, even though an anti flicker harness comes with them. Have you had any of those issues?

    I believe those are what was put in the jeep
    I purchased and they do flicker some. Probably going to change them.

    I never had any issues. The Euro Spec jeeps have an adjuster screw that allows for side to side adjustment. I ordered a couple of those, and it allowed perfect adjustment.

    These guys show how they are installed, around the 5:20 mark:

    There has been changes and improvements made on the latest QT headlights. Depending upon where you live the new ones are heated and might be made by JW. Quadratec is a reputable Jeep parts vender unlike nearly anything found on eBay especially used headlights which should be buyer beware.

    I live in CNY. Heated may be a viable option. I'm looking at these for the heated lens - https://www.quadratec.com/p/quadratec/heated-led-projector-beam-headlamps-jeep-wrangler-jk
    Unfortunately, my year JK didn't come with DRL's. These have them integrated for those models that did have DRL. Bummer, I wish there was a way to activate them.
