D.O.T. Version EVO J3 Headlight and Trail 6 FAQs Page

Share this Page

Q: Where can I order the EVO J3 headlights?

A: Click HERE to purchase from one of our Authorized Online Dealers.

Q: I was wondering if these come as a complete set with everything needed to replace my old JK headlights? Does it come with adapters as well?

A: Yes, unless you have a 2017 or newer JK with the factory LED option in which case you’ll need the adapter ring kit as well.

Q: How does the turn signal get power?

A: Coming off the headlight harness will be an extended harness that you will tuck down and plug into the Jeep’s factory turn signal plug. Since the factory turn signal will then be disconnected and no longer needed, we’ve created a new off-road light called the Trail 6 that can mount into the hole in the grill with the JK Front Grille Mounting Kit.

Q: Can I use the EVO J3 on my JL?

A: No, at this point they are designed to work on JK’s.

Q: Will the Trail 6 be a stand-alone light, or will there be a harness to tie in with the headlights?

A: It will be stand-alone, so you have the freedom of wiring it; however works best for you!

Q: I’d like to buy a pair of ECE EVO J3’s and Trail 6’s? Do you make an ECE Version?

A: We have launched the DOT J3 Headlights, however, the ECE version will not be available until sometime in 2020. You wouldn’t want to purchase the DOT lights because the DOT spec is intended for U.S. only.

Q: Are you planning on making J-link app apple car play compatible?

A: Yes, in a future update.

Q: How does the Trail 6 wire up, does it need a relay or switch?

A: For the Trail 6, we recommend a dedicated 10-amp fused line per kit of two lamps depending on your electrical setup that may involve adding a switch and relay as well.

Q: Are any anti-flicker harnesses required to run the J3 lights?

A: EVO J3 has anti-flicker technology built-in for a true plug-and-play experience on your Jeep JK.

Q: Why won’t the J3 work in Canada?

A: Canadian Jeeps have a unique DRL scheme that we have found to cause intermittent faults in the Turn signal system. Rather than release a product that is hamstrung a bit (disable the turn function) or that could potentially cause a safety issue we are not releasing to Canada. A permanent solution is underway.

Q: How do the daytime running lights function on the EVO J3 series?

A: The DRL function is for Canadian spec Jeeps that are programmed from the factory to have a DRL on at all times.

Q: I assumed the DRL function was standard; the headlight was advertised with DRL as one of the features. Why doesn’t it work?

A: If the vehicle is not equipped with DRL, these lamps will not add DRL. If the vehicle has DRL turned on, our lights will pick it up, once our permanent solution is in place.

Q: Can I add my factory turn signals as well?

A: The blinker in the headlight is already at the top of DOT specifications for how “bright” a turn signal can be, by adding the factory turn signal as well, you are technically no longer on-road, DOT compliant. You will have full headlight + off-road mode functionality if you choose to continue to use the factory turns.

Q: Will cutting and splicing into our harness cause my warranty to be void?

A: Any modification to the product will void the warranty.

Q: What triggers the startup sequence?

A: The unlock button on the keyless remote.

Q: Does the EVO J3 have a separate DRL wire?

A: No.

Q: In the J-Link App, how do you rename a light?

A: As far as giving the headlight a different personal nickname, remove the light from your vehicle (via the app, not literally) then re-add it again to change the nickname.

Q: Why are my EVO J3 turn signals hyper flashing?

A: “Hyper flashing” is known to happen on some Jeeps, and we have created a webpage that goes over some of the common issues. While this was created when we started selling our Jeep tail lights, the information is the same as for the turn signals since they both interact with the turn circuit. In addition to the information on the page, another possible explanation for any hyper flashing is if you spliced in your old turn signals with the new headlights this could cause an issue.” Click HERE for more information about hyper flashing.
