I received my lights today and I see what you mean about the adjustments and about the place for the ambient temp sensor on the driver side light. Unfortunately, I will not be installing them this weekend as I had hoped because both of them arrived broken. The driver side light has one of the small alignment tabs broken off...no big deal I thought, I can probably fix that. Then I opened the passenger side and the entire two-bolt mounting bracket was broken off...in no way fixable. I emailed Jeremy and even though I haven't heard back from him yet I feel certain he will make it right. I'm just disappointed as I was really looking forward to installing them this weekend. I will update when available.

That sucks, make sure you ask him for a shipping label so he doesn't forget. A soon as he gets those back (unless you email him the broken pictures, he may not wait for the old ones to return) he'll ship them out.

I went ahead and sent photos of the damage to him when I notified him that they were broken. He said he is going to file a claim and have Fedex come pick them up. The next problem is that he will not be getting any more in until tomorrow so they probably won't ship out until Monday. I'm not really worried because I'm sure he will make it right. I'm just in a hurry to get them in....especially now that I have seen them and know how clear and sexy they are, lol. I started getting disappointed when I heard something rattling around inside the box as I was opening it. That's never a good sign.

The replacement lights shipped out Friday as Jeremy said they would I and received them today. Nothing was broken this time. I did notice that on one of them a little extra piece of the reflective foil type materal had become wedged between the orange reflector and the outer lense making it look like a crack even though it isn't. There is no way to get it out so I am just going to live with it. It's very thin and only about a quarter inch long. I took some time and compared the new ones to the OEM and didn't really see in glaring differences except for one thing. The OEM lights only have one adjustment, on the inner side. The TYC have two adjustments, the same one on the inner side and another on the bottom near the middle. Anyone know why this might be? I'm assuming one is the vertical and one the horizontal but I dunno which is which.

It was probably overkill but I went ahead with a little trick that I learned when I bought the last TYC lights for my F150....I applied a coat of clear Goop sealer around the entire seam of the housing and lense. I wash my truck a lot and don't want them leaking, lol. They are drying and I probably won't have time to install until maybe Thursday morning but I will snap a pic or two then.

My oem lights have 2 adjustment screws, look again because there has to be one for left/right and one for up/down.

It's really weird. There is a bracket on the back and a place for the bottom adjustment screw but the screw and adjustment device are not there. They are definitely OEM lights because they say Chrysler on the back.

Snapped a quick pic on my way out this morning. This is the OEM light. I see where the bottom adjuster is supposed to be but it is not there on either OEM light.



Also, another question....on the TYC lights that do have the bottom adjuster, what is the white piece that is inserted into the hole with the adjustment rod? Looks like a small white plastic rod or pin with a round wheel on one end.

I haven't been on in a while...been busy busy busy! I actually already had the lights in by the time I saw your last message. I think the little wheel I was asking about has something to do with the bottom adjustment screw. I don't guess it really matters at this point because I adjusted the side adjustment screws to match the old lights and installed them. Tonight was the first night out after dark and I have to say that they seem to be perfect. The light pattern is actually really nice. Install was straight forward and simple and the super clear, reflective lens looks awesome! I am very happy with the purchase. Thanks for all your info.
