These headlights were designed for maximum performance, and they are the only 9-inch headlights that are 100% engineered and assembled in the USA. With the latest technology and features, they redefine what’s possible for aftermarket headlights!

With OEM-grade quality, the Elite Series headlights will add a switchback turn signal, welcome sequence, a brighter DRL halo with selectable color, and optional offroad lighting and show mode. Plus, you’ll get unmatched performance and output, backed by an 8-year warranty.


Maximum Light Output. First and foremost, the Elite Series LED Headlights provide full LED illumination for both low beam and high beam function, with the modern, rectangular bi-LED projector. This unit provides higher intensity than both the OEM halogen and LED options, shining light far down the road ahead. The beam pattern has a sharp cutoff, with excellent center intensity and strong width, for a fantastic nighttime driving experience. The same projector is installed on both the Elite and Elite Max models.

Welcome Sequence. Anytime you hit the unlock button, your Elite Series headlights will show off their capabilities with a gradual illumination of the LEDs. This provides an unmistakable indicator of the modern technology packed inside. Note that this feature is programmable, and can be easily disabled if desired.

Show Mode. As if the other features weren’t enough, the Elite Max model comes with a patent-pending Show Mode. Whether you’re parked at a show or just want to be seen, you can activate the show mode any time you’re stopped. Choose between four functions: Gradual, White Strobe, Amber Strobe, or Amber/White Strobe. Of course, there’s no need for extra controllers - simply toggle your off-road switch to easily start show mode from your cabin.

Selectable DRL - On the Fly. These headlights feature a selectable DRL, to customize the look of your Jeep. With up to four distinct DRL modes, you can choose white and amber colors, and enable or disable the extra DRL bars (if equipped). The best part? You don’t even have to pop the hood. Our patent-pending technology allows you to program your headlights from inside the vehicle, using existing controls. No extra switches, wires, or controllers required!

Switchback Turn Signal. Stock headlights don’t have a turn signal. Where’s the fun in that? The Elite Series headlights will flash amber any time the turn signal is activated. When you’re done making your move, they’ll switch back to the white parking light, or your selected DRL color. With the plug-and-play harness included, no wire splices are needed to add this function. Thinking about a fender chop? The Elite Max model also provides enough turn signal output to be SAE compliant, replacing your factory turn signal completely, unlike the LED strips found in most chop kits. If you’re serious about off-roading but want to stay safe, the Elite Max is the perfect solution.

Not just on road! First in its class, the Elite Max model includes a patent-pending Trail Light off-road lighting feature. With the same emitters found in our popular Stage Series off-road products, the top and bottom reflectors shine extra light in a wide beam, to illuminate the trail ahead.

The high-power LEDs stay cool, thanks to custom-designed heatsinks. An extra switch is included to activate these Trail Lights, or they can be connected to a factory auxiliary switch, if equipped.

Plug-and-Play Installation. These headlights were designed to be a direct replacement for both halogen and LED-equipped Jeeps, in all trim levels. Simply remove your factory headlight assembly and ours will bolt right in its place. A plug-and-play wire harness is included to hook them up to your factory connector, and also add the turn signal connection. No splicing required! With built-in adjusters, the lamps can be aimed using the provided adjustment tool. For Sport owners, a simple add-a-fuse is included to provide the DRL function. Elite Max customers will also receive an extra braided wiring harness, for the off-road and show mode feature! This harness includes a toggle switch, or you can connect it to a factory auxiliary switch, if equipped.


Assembled with Quality - in the USA. Most OEM headlights are made in the US, but nearly all aftermarket headlights are assembled overseas. There’s a reason for that - quality control counts, and the OEMs know it. We’re working to break that mold, and deliver headlights with the same quality you’ll find from the factory. Elite Series headlights are proudly assembled in the USA using OEM-grade materials, including a cast aluminum driver and heatsinks, UV-coated outer lens, aluminum-core circuit boards, and automotive-grade LED emitters. After being assembled by our team in St. Louis, Missouri, they are robotically sealed and individually pressure-tested for long-lasting protection against moisture, before being packaged in custom foam for safe transportation. No expense has been spared, from materials to assembly, right here in America.


Proven Reliability - Backed for 8 Years. Like our popular Stage Series lineup, Elite LED headlights have been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like the factory components on your vehicle. With integrated moisture-proof vents, the lamps can “breathe” with changes in temperature, maintaining a strong seal over time. And with built-in circuit protection for voltage spikes and reverse polarity, these lights will keep working for years. They are backed by an industry-leading 8-year limited warranty.


If you have any questions, we'll be more than happy to help!

I would love to be proved wrong, but I was under that impression that there were essentially no LED chips that were manufactured in the US, and that all light companies used foreign made chips, so there were no 100% US made off road lights (although other companies clearly make their lenses, bodies, etc. here).

So when will the heated version be released?
No heated version is planned at this time. However, this has been requested and relayed to our engineering team.

Black Friday code?
Our Black Friday sale goes live on Monday! Products will be automatically discounted across the site. No code is required. Stay tuned!

"Enginered and Assembled in the US" Where are the parts MADE that you assemble in the US?
We have a ton of different components in our products, sourced from both US and overseas suppliers. Many components have multiple suppliers. The decision comes down to overall capability and cost - some components like LED chips simply are not made in the U.S. at all. We do our best to buy domestically whenever we can (especially with freight costs these days), and we're proud to be supporting 35+ production jobs here in the U.S. by doing all assembly in-house.

Correct, LED chips are not able to be produced here in the US. However, many other components in our products are sourced from the US. Thanks!

@Diode Dynamics do you guys have any real world pics of these headlights in some example JL/JTs besides the marketing images on your website? Would like to get some different views of how they look in some jeeps before committing to the purchase.

Does the Elite come with the DRL bars or just the Elite Max? What are the key differences between both models?

So tempted.
If we have factory halogen lights, will a trazer or similar unit be needed to run these?

The base Elite set just gets the lowbeam, highbeam, and round DRL around the perimeter. The Max gets the vertical DRL bars on the left/right sides of the center bulb (which are DOT approved to work as turn signals) and the offroad light and show modes (uses a harness with a switch located in cab to enable both).

Brightness of the low/high beams and round DRL are the same on both as far as I understand it.

DD mentioned you do NOT need any sort of programmer on their launch video.

No tazer is required. These headlights are designed to work with factory components without any errors!
