One of the guys in the jeep club put them on his jeep and did a side by side comparison with another member who had the ARB's. There's a little bit of difference in the light pattern, not a ton, longevity will be the question I care to see answered in time. For a significant price difference tho, the difference was negligible.

Granted they are not the best pics as I took them quick, those are the backs of the signs and the road goes down and to the left.
I have the center of the Gravity's at the top of the lowbeam to fill in the light the way I wanted, overall very happy.

Nice! Looks like they have the punch LED's have lacked in the past.

I have not tried the 9011's, if I remember right they are no longer true HIR bulbs. The 9012's are still true HIR's and are also LL (Long Life).

I had 9005's before these, there was a little difference going to the 9012's but not a OMG upgrade.

Over all with the stock lighting upgraded and the addition of the KC's I am very happy, plenty of usable light. If find the funds down the road I might go with HID/retrofit projector headlights and fogs, however at this time I see no need to upgrade.

Besides the 5k and 6.5k color (blueish tint), my only other concern would be that being a LED bulb, they probably don't produce enough heat to melt snow/ice off of your headlights in the winter time. I could be completely wrong, but that's what has strayed me away from these in the past...

If they don't get hot, then why do they have built-in cooling fans ? I don't know too much about LED's , But they do have cooling fans. The reg ones & the 70 watt ones both have em.

Regular bulbs project the wasted energy as heat outwards, LED bulbs don't, it goes backwards into a heatsink.

Isn't most of the heat in the electronics? I thought the heat sink was to cool the board that is on the back side of the diode.

The chip is part of the electronics, and it's what produces the heat.

I just picked up and installed two 21.5" trail master LED light bars on my truck. So far I have been really impressed with them. Each bar was $110 at 4wheelparts. I have hopes that I won't see moisture in their future.

Nice! I'm happy with those comb-flood spot sanmak LED 42" bar. The outter two ambers are on a seperate circuit for really dusty or foggy times the thing (centre section of white LEDs ) is crazy bright

Way brighter than my entire china dual row 40" bar.
