Default Led headlights

So the Wrangler came installed with some cheap eBay led headlights...the issue is that some of the passenger sides individual globes are dead.... drivers are perfect.It came with stock headlights as well..
Should I just purchase another set? Or is this what happens with eBay $100 ish headlights.....PS how do the cops go with these?

The cheap ones from ebay are terrible. Also, the majority of them are designed for left hand drive vehicles meaning that the lens directs the beam to the right. This tends to dazzle drivers coming the other way.

Most people change out their stock headlights because they are utterly useless for Australian conditions. They are fine for the US as their roads are lit up a lot more than here.

With LED lights you really do get what you are paid for. The best ones like JW Speakers are suited to here are around $1000 a pair.

If you just keep replacing them with cheap ones, you will always be forking out money to replace them.

I went in a different direction - Britax polycarbonate headlights with LED park light bulbs and JW Speaker H4 LED bulbs. All up, it cost $320 and it's proven to be a pretty good combo.

The Britax inserts are good. I had them before I went to JWS full replacements.

Not all eBay ones are junk. I have had a set in mine for 2 years with no probs.

The low beam is almost twice as good as stock. High beam is a bit rubbish, but my other lights fix that.

The beam pattern isn't a sharp cutoff, but much much sharper than stock. And the pattern is universal(?), no kick up on the left or the right, so although not exactly "RHD" specific, nor LHD specific either.

I have been able to use the manual adjustment on the headlight bracket to point them down, and then I also use the elec adjustment on the dash to lower them to #2 and they are where I want them to be and I don't get any complaints from oncoming drivers.

Around $850 for a pair of the 7" headlights.
