JK headlights in Gladiator?

Postby MJMadness » Thu Mar 29, 2018 1:03 am

So I'm going to sell my JK, and it's got a very nice set of Trucklite heated LED headlights in it... I'm thinking they could be retrofitted to the Gladiator headlight holes or buckets? I've still got the stock JK lights so I'd just throw them back in.

Anyone tried this?

No, I haven't measured anything, it literally just occurred to me that I'm going to sell my JK.

Yes they will fit, but you need to modify the housing that the light fits in. I just upgraded to JK LED headlights and they work fine, just cut the back off the housing. Dont have any pics but you can test fit and see what needs to be done.

Ah, well, I sold the JK with them in it before I read that.

However, I'll keep it in mind as they were amazing lights.
