    WRONG FORUM!? I've asked this question a few times, and nobody over there seems willing to help, except the aftermarket headlight sellers. Maybe because i'm new there, or i'm not asking the question correctly and in the right place, so i thought i'd give it a whirl here while we're all BORED!

    I'm trying to gain insight on the LED lights that the JT will likely have. Does anybody on here also own a JL with the LED factory option?

    Are the high and low beams seperate?

    Can you change the individual bulbs for the high and low beam?

    The reason why i'm asking is Jeep says this is a reflector LED headlight, but from what I can tell over at Wrangler Forum, it appears the low beam comes out of the middle of the light from a projector lense, and the high beam is from the top and bottom with a reflector housing.

    WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

    Many on the Wrangler forum complain about snow not melting around the headlight with the LED option because it doesn't get hot enough. I'm wondering if you can upgrade the low beam bulb with an HID bulb/setup so that it creates more heat to melt this snow (I live in Wisconsin).

    Aftermarket makes a headlight that actually has a heating element in it, but i want a factory solution with aftermarket bulb.

    It is often understood that throwing LED or HID lights into typical reflector housings is a horrible idea because of the lack of some kind of cuttoff that limits light from blinding oncoming traffic.

    If the JL/JT have a projector middle lense, then we might be in luck for an HID upgrade without blinding folks and melting the snow.

    This is a photo of an OEM Mopar LED Head Light.

    These i believe are aftermarket, but appear to be similar to the OEM Mopar LED lights.

    I would assume there are no replaceable bulbs, that the headlight is all one unit.
