These KC HiLiTESGravity Pro 7-inch LED headlights are for those of you who that have a 2007 and up JK that are looking to upgrade your factory headlights. We all know that the factory headlights on a JK leave a lot to be desired right out of the factory. So an upgrade is something that a lot of people are looking to do, and if you have the budget for it and you're looking for one of the best upgrades, going with this set of headlights from KC HiLiTES is going be a really nice option for you. Now, there are going to be upgrades from just upgrading the bulbs, to upgrading the reflectors and the bulbs, all the way up to something like this, which is a full LED projector headlight. The projector is there to aim the light. It's there to give you a very sharp cut-off and give you a lot of very usable light, and the LED light source is going to be very, very bright at a low draw, give you a color that's really, really nice and last a very long time. So there are a lot of benefits to a full LED projector headlight like this one. We're also going to talk through the installation, which for these lights is a very simple process as well. Jeep does make you pop the grille off anytime you're changing anything with the headlights, but again, easy process, one outta three wrenches, probably no more than an hour, and we'll talk a little bit more of that...about that in just a second. So what makes these different from some of the other LED projector headlights on the market? These use a couple of different pieces of technology by KC, and that has to do with both the projector and the reflector that are inside of these lights and that is just going to give you the maximum amount of light in the right places. Now, there are some less expensive lights out there. They're going to scatter a little a bit of light, it's not going to be in that usable area where you're gonna need it, or they're not going to be quite as bright. These are going to be very bright, a lot of very useful light, but again you are going to pay a premium for these lights. These lights are built using a die-cast aluminum housing in a polycarbonate lens that's going to be both scratch-resistant and crack-resistant. Of course, these are gonna be right up on the front of your jeep. There's always the chance that you're gonna catch a stone throw. These are going to be nice and hard. They're not going to scratch, chip, or otherwise break on you. As I said before, they're a very, very bright light. You're going to get 3,000 lumens on the low beam. You're gonna get light about 400 meters out in front of you, and these are going to be at a 5,000-kelvin color temperature, which is a little bit warmer than a lot of the other LED lights that you'll find out there, which is something that I like. Some of those other LEDs can border on such a crystal white that they're almost on a blue level. These are going to be, not daylight, but just a little bit warmer, and again I do really like the color that you get from these lights. These also take advantage of, as I mentioned before, a couple of different patented technologies by KC, and that's going to be their Gravity Reflective Diode, as well as their Gravity Projector Optics, and what that's going to be is how far the LED light source sits from its reflector and also the projector optics in general, to give you that really sharp cut-off. Again, when you have a light like this, the idea is to have as much light output as possible, but when you have a very, very bright light in a traditional reflector housing, that light's gonna be scattered everywhere, it's going to the eyes of oncoming traffic, and you're lighting up areas you don't need to be lighting up. So that's where the projector comes in. It really harnesses all that light, aims it, puts in an area where it's very useful where you're not gonna blind oncoming traffic, and this is a really nice combination of both. Very, very bright light, but also very controlled. So like I said, Jeep does require you to remove the grille anytime you're doing anything with the headlights, but this is still gonna be a simple one outta three wrench installation that you can do in right around an hour. All you're going to need is a flathead screwdriver or a trim tool to pop the six plastic clips across the top of the grille off. Then give the rest of the grille a tug to release it from the jeep. After that there are some screws in the headlight retention ring that you'll have to remove, then the whole headlight housing will come out. Gonna unplug it from the wiring harness, plug in your new headlight, set it in the headlight bucket, replace the headlight retention ring, and finally, replace your grille. So I said at the beginning this is going to be a premium light from a company that's known to make a premium product. This is going to be one of their highest-end LED headlights that you can get for the JK. All of that means you are gonna pay a bit of a premium, and these lights are gonna come in at right around $600. Now, they're not gonna be the most expensive LED projector headlights out there and I do think they pack a lot of technology, a lot of very controlled light into this package. So if you are looking for a premium product, you have the budget for it, I don't think that these are overpriced by any stretch of the imagination. However, if you are on a little bit of a tighter budget there are gonna be some options out there. Maybe not quite as much light, maybe not a projector, but you can still upgrade from a factory light for much less. So if you're looking for a premium LED projector headlight for your JK, I'd definitely recommend taking a look at these from KC HiLiTES, and you can find them right here at extremeterrain.com.

Great set of headlights
Install went quickly since the light housings are indexed so I spent more time adjusting the low beams than doing anything else. The odd broken low beam line took a little getting used to and didn't go away despite my attempts at adjustment. Apparently that's just they way they are. I have also noticed radio interference with the low beams like some others have mentioned. They are incredibly pricey but I do recommend them. I also recommend installing a hood lock to keep thieves from ripping them off since they're so easy to access and remove.Helpful (0)

Blows stock lights away
First off these lights would get a 5/5 star review if it wasn't for the radio interference that they are causing on my jeep. That being said these are the best headlights I have ever had on a vehicle. The low beams are good with a sharp beam horizon line. The high beams are outrageously bright. I spend a lot of time driving at night around rural Nevada so I need as much light as possible. These meet my requirements for sure.Helpful (0)

Haven’t been able to take my Jeep out to any trails since putting these on, but just driving around at night is much easier. Around my house there are a lot of deer, and even after only 2 nights these headlights have helped me avoid hitting at least 3. The high beams especially are very bright and throw light much further and in a wider area than the stock lights.Helpful (1)

Awesome lights. I don't drive too much at night due to having little kids, but do drive a lot in the early evenings. These lights provide a clear beam of light that does not sway too much to the left or right. I get compliments from many people as well. Great lights!Helpful (3)

Great driving light with insane high beam
High quality part for sure but mounted a bit loose like a retaining ring should be needed on a JKU. The lights stick out a bit for a cool unique look and successfully prevents people from ruining thier Jeep with lame aftermarket grills that belong on a PT Cruiser.Helpful (10)

What a change!!
This is a must, is high in price but you get what you pay! The best!! I had to order a converter from H13 to H4 as my jeep is sold in Central America. I order it in Amazon, no one else had it. Installation with this was fast and easy. No flikering. I am very happy with the results!Helpful (8)

Significantly greater light output and badass appearance! Istatallation was a relative breeze with the exception of trimming my aftermarket grill to clear the additional size of the pro series.Helpful (7)

Do these lights come with any kind of warranty?
These carry a 5 year warranty through KC HiLites.
Do these lights create enough heat to keep snow off in winter?
LED lights in general do not get very hot, these likely would not heat up too much and you would still need to clear the snow off of them.
Do these need to be adjusted out of the box? I have a 4 inch lift. How do I know what the best "tilt pattern" is. Thx.
Are these an h4 or h13 connected?
These have H13 connections.
Do these cause FM radio interference?
We have not had any reports of these LED lights causing any radio interference.
The headlight guards will work with these headlights.
These do not have a DRL feature. Delta has a few options, and Morimoto has one too. Please contact us to help determine the type of headlight that would work best of you depending on what type of light and DRL you're after.

These headlights will be much brighter than stock and will be a nice upgrade.
The KC HiLiTES Gravity LED Pro 7 in. Headlights will not extend past the top of the OEM grille, however they will sit all but flush, so fitment with grilles such as yours may be more difficult.

Hello, These headlights have a clear lens with a darker reflector area giving a darker style look.
Hello, unfortunately we did not test fit these headlights with halo kits, so we wouldn't be able to guarantee fitment.
