    They are Chinese knock-offs. My pal bought them on Amazon a year ago for like $100 or so. When he started looking at installing, he decided it was to much work and asked if I wanted to buy them. At the time I was thinking of Trucklites and he was asking close to what he paid. I offered to help him with the install, but it never happened. I guess he decided to just get a new Jeep with factory LED lights . Im grateful that he stopped over and made me an offer I couldnít refuse.

    As for the Trucklites, maybe someday. I just have a hard time spending money to replace something that works just fine (cough).

    As for the mouse, she must of built the nest while we were on vacation last month.

    Well hopefully they hold up the install wasnít that bad was it? But I guess if you can get a new Jeep go for it lol I have KC headlights and love the color they have. Not blue or purple like some of the LEDs they are more of a pure white.

    It took a few hours to install. One headlight didnít fit right and I had to file the radial location tabs. In my case, I had to remove the vacuum pump, winch control box and entire front bumper. With the winch hidden inside the bumper, I have a hard time doing anything without tearing everything apart. At least the lights came with adapters and built in resistors.

    Iím waiting for dark before I judge the color and brightness.

    After some adjustments, they seem pretty decent. My first impressions are that the low beams are brighter/better than stock, but I wouldnít say itís the end all be all. The high beams however, are noticeably brighter and cast light much further than stock. The color is bright white at 6000k, but puts a purple hue on anything white.

    Overall Iím happy with them.

    Other than the winch issue, doesnít sound like too bad of an install. But overall definitely looks to be better than stock glad to see the upgrade! Especially for $50

    [QUOTE=sipafz;1121162]Installed the backup camera. It was pretty straight forward with the hardest part being routing the camera wires with RCA plugs through the small holes drilled through the bumper./QUOTE]

    enjoying 'Oscar's Thread' lol - wife has a JKUR.

    So looking into doing the backup camera for my wife's jeep - did you end up using OBD and JSCAN?? was JSCAN hard to use? I have the app and compatible OBD - just hesitant to buy a license is all...

    Glad your enjoying the thread. Iíve had a blast designing and building many of the modifications over the last 3 years.

    Installing a backup camera is relatively easy if youíre handy and have basic tools. I did use JScan, a OBDII WIFI Adapter and my iPhone to enable the backup camera function on both my JKU and wifeís KK.

    JScan itís self can be a little temperamental. Itís been my experience that not all the listed adaptations work. If you have issues, the developer is fairly responsive, but know that he lives in Poland and responses are not immediate. Overall I recommend JScan as an inexpensive alternative to aftermarket programmers. Iím beyond pleased with the performance especially considering that I only have $40 invested.

    Here is a link to the JScan thread for more info:

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
