Headlight replacement

I am considering the JW Speaker 8700 evolution led headlight. As best I can determine it is about 30 watts. I assume it will trigger a lamp warning. If it does what type/size of resistor would those in the know recommend? Would I have to place a resistor on both the low and high beams? Thanks

Headlight Replaced

Plug and play, no fault thrown. The pic with the light on is low beam. I got the black bezel version there is also a chrome one. JW Speaker 8700 evolution LED headlight. This is the company that makes the HD Daymaker lights.

That looks awesome! Thanks for the photos!

How much was the light... I found prices between 300-400 bux.

Cheers,

The cheapest I could find was 334 at EAD Offroad.

What he said.

Anyway to get some night time photos of the spread and performance, especially compared to OEM?

Looks nice, if it was a major upgrade in performance it might be something that interests me for the future.

can you elaborate a bit on the 'plug and play'? no modification at all?

would love to see a comparison with stock.. though that may be hard since you already have it installed.. maybe compare with another NineT in your area? if there is any?
