    If you get the adapter you can fit any 7" round LED light you desire. There is a 7" round light showdown in youtube that tells you the difference between each one and what is better/worse. The new jeep JL design copies are one of the best available atm for a great price.

    Thank you, amrg!

    I'll watch it when I get home.

    So if I get the Lased Design adapter and the "Negative Switch Converter" that they recommend (see link below) then I'm good to go, right?

    Do I have to buy a negative converter for each light i.e 4? or just 1? (Sorry if that's a stupid question!)

    And thank you for your opinion, I'll look at going for the NSLUMO ones then, not sure if the Halo is a running light or not though, will have to try and find out!

    You only need one set for the headlights, the fogs do not require them.

    I did break one ball stud a little, *my own fault* for wailing on it with a hammer instead of being patient and using some sand paper to finesse it on.

    I will say this about the lights I have. I do feel like the brights actually do something and I can see down the road now, lows are similar to stock, but combined with fogs have plenty of light. I haven't been flashed yet for using the lows and fogs, so that's good I guess?

    I know a lot of you dont like the gap, but even on my white H3 it's hard to tell/see the body color unless you're up close.

    I am running both thier headlight and fog light adapters for about a month now as well. My H3 is a daily and the headlights haven't had any issues yet. The gap doesn't bother me and you won't really notice unless your are close up and inspecting the vehicle but then again I do have a black grill and the headlights housing are also black so everything blends together.

    Foglight adapters on the other hand is what I did have issues with; one side snapped during install pretty easily and found that the bracket could use some adjustments. Waiting on Lased Designs to make adjustments and send me the new pair.

    In the meanwhile I kept the Foglight adapters on along with some Dum Dum putty to help keep it in place (haven't had time to take them out) but so far one side has only fallen out 1x while driving.

    Overall, I am pleased with the headlight adapters, should anything happen to them I will post an update.

    Hello Lauren!

    So the reason why we need the harness is to reverse the polarity because by nature LED lights are polarity sensitive. This means that electricity can only flow IN and OUT in one direction. This is very different than a traditional incandescent bulb which is not polarity sensitive. You can hook up a traditional bulb anyway you want and electricity will flow through it both ways.

    In order to get them to get both your new 7in Headlights to work, you only need ONE Negative Switched Relay Harness (Option 1). If you want to go with Option 2, which is those 2 Polarity Converter boxes, you will need 2 of them. They are sold as a set of two, so that won’t be a problem.

    The Foglights do not need any type of adapter. All you have to do is plug them in. However, you need to plug them in the opposite way they are intended to go. On the OEM fog light harness there is this little buckle/clip and on the foglight harness itself, it has this little tab that is intended to slip into that buckle. To get them to work, do not let the little tab on the fog light harness to slip into the buckle on the OEM harness. Instead, flip it around the opposite way.

    Also just as a note. If you want to buy headlights with a RGB lights (Color Changing Halo/Angel Eye Lights) there is some additional wiring you will need to do to wire up the color changing function. I don’t cover it in my videos, but there are some other videos out there on the subject:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-rXCJF_dHIc

    This video that I linked above is for a Jeep, but it shows you the basic idea about how you should go about it. Also, if you do decide to buy a pair of 7in headlights with the color changing halo lights and foglights that ALSO have a color changing feature, GET THEM AS A PACKAGE! All these RGB lights are controlled off a little control box that allows you connect it to your phone to change the color. If you buy the headlights and foglights separately, you get 2 different module boxes that you will need to mount instead of just one. Also I don’t think you will be able to change the color of both the headlights and foglights on your phone instantly at the same time. You will need to connect to one box to change the color of the headlights, and then connect to the other module box to change the color of the foglights. The ones that are sold as a package allow you to connect all the RGB functions on the lights (2 Headlights, 2 Foglights) together and you can change them together instantly.

    Personally I am not a fan of the RGB look which is why I didn’t get a pair, but by all means if you want them, they are out there!

    In terms of what brand to trust. It is very hard to say if you are looking on Amazon or Ebay. Almost all lights on there are Made in China and many of the different brands you see on there are from the same factory. There are US name brand ones available, however there is a huge price difference. Many of these lights range from $300 to $1000. Brands like these include are JW Speaker, Truck Lite Morimoto, HID Projectors, KC Lights, etc.

    Hope this was helpful!

    Watched the video, well done, when I grabbed mine it had a poorly done hid conversion, no brights, one fog missing wiring and bulb, sorted. It out lots of wiring removed, I am back to stock, found some good bulbs that are adequate, might do a conversion some time

    Update:

    Lased Designs just announced a V2 version for 3D printed studs. These studs use the factory 4 prong clip on the OEM headlight to hold the new headlights in place. From the looks of it, the actual main part of the headlight adapter, hasn't been changed, just the studs.

    Now he just needs to 3D print the roof marker housing with identical marker lights. Or even the Offroad lights he has up there.

    Haha that would be the dream! I talk to the guy a lot and we bounce back ideas. From what he has told me, his 3D printers that he has is no where near big to print that. A printer that size would probably cost more than 50K. Also the print times would probably take 80+ hours for one set. Just a random guess on the print time for that though. I have no idea lol, but he has said that to print a full set of the 7in headlight adapters can take a full 24 hours.

    That sounds about right. My brother has a 3d printer and he'll have that thing running for days for a print sometimes. The worst is when one of the moving printer parts bumps/snags on the print 20 hours in, resulting in wasted materials and restarting the print from scratch after you figure our root cause and remedy it.
