          Fog Up Frequently

          I had bought these taillights thinking I was buying some of the best. They look good and the brake lights are fairly bright. The reverse lights seem about as bright as factory, but I didn't really compare them. My only complaint is that one of them fogs up significantly. Looking at their website under the FAQs, they claim that it is completely normal and they won't replace them under warranty, but it's only the passenger side that does it. If it was normal, I would expect both to fog up. More importantly, I off road with a guy who has the Chinese knockoffs, and his are equally bright, and he's never had a problem with them fogging.

          Great Improvement in Look Function

          The JW Speaker tail lights were a great improvement over my factory tail lights, both in terms of look and overall brightness and function. There are some competitors on Amazon significantly less expensive, but the quality appears significantly less as well (matte finish and DOT embossing over the lens). I like the look of the JW's over any of the other LED tail lights I have seen. Install was fairly simple. I did need my son to help hold the lights in place to keep them from shifting and to ensure flush mounting as I was bolting the tail lights down. I think this is more to do with my Jeep as the original factory screws looked slightly angled when removed. Be careful of what install videos you watch. JW Speaker's install video and instructions indicate the resistor should face the front of the vehicle, but several install videos I have seen show the resistor facing rear. Also on the left tail light of my vehicle there were two plugs attached to the rear tail light. One actually goes to the tail light the other is just secured to the tail light housing via a plastic rivet. I have a number of friends who have these tail lights and have heard no complaints or issues. I have only had them installed for two weeks, but I think they are awesome and a massive improvement.

          Great fit and nice mod for the Jeep. Easy install. Well worth paying a bit more for these vs other after market LED’s
