    truck-lite x

    just installed truck-lite led headlights, the lighting is fantastic!! but I can't stand the x pattern, it's more than annoying to me since I have crappy vision. Wish I had done more research on these and picked up on this x-patter. Anyone know how to get rid of the x?

    I thought I could adjust it out but there is no horizontal adjustment on the JK ...guess Chrysler decided there was only the need to adjust up and down.

    Also, after mounting them I realize I don't care for the flat headlight, I like the dome shape - anyone manage to separate the dome from the stock housing and re-use it? I'm thinking this may also get rid of the x pattern.

    I guess if all else fails I'll sale these and get the JWS

    cheers

    I've also got the trucklites and the x pattern in them bothered me at first but I got use to it. I've adjusted them many times and nothing gets rid of it. I wouldn't recommend trying to seperate the lens from the headlight. Changing the lens wouldn't change the pattern. I've seen the JW speaker lights and I think they are brighter than the trucklites and twice the cost, but I don't care for the projector style lens that they have. I personally like the trucklite look better.

    I have had truck lites installed for almost a week or so now and haven't even noticed the x. Even if I did see an x it wouldn't bother me. The lights are so bright! They are amazing

    I have a 2012 with truck lights also. I had the X also. Someone on the forum did a write up to adjust the horizontal direction on the lights. On the drivers side bottom left is a bolt that you can back out to move them left/right. Same on the passenger side. I also order the replacement adjustment screws from the dealer for $3 each, just never installed them yet. I adjusted mine so the beams almost meet in the front.

    I think everyone has the X pattern but it just blends in after about a week or so.

    I've had mine for a year. I see the X if it's really dark or I'm driving in thick fog.

    I got used to it after a while. I love the headlights, though the oncoming traffic isn't happy that I have them.

“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
