How do I install these?

Just bought h11 led bulbs but I'm having a hard time figuring out to get access to the bulbs already in the jeep. Anyone have any idea or done this before? It's a 3.6L 2015. Thanks

Through the round pop-out bulb access panel inside the front wheelwells.

No you don't need to. I used my h11 harnesses to power LED off road lights.

Re: How do I install these?

Well after about 40 minutes and removing the drivers side airbox, I got them installed. Didn't know the DRL's are sealed in by a cap, thought they would just be hanging out like the rest of the lights. They don't look led in the picture really but they do in person and look great. Glad I have small hands lol. Off to do the fog lights now, which are easier

If it wasn't raining today, I would go take a look, I'm curious to open the wheelwell access panel and see what you're talking about.

Re: How do I install these?

I changed mine out awhile back, those holes are a PITA to pull bulbs through. Course, in my case, I didn't know you could pull the air box, etc and get to them from behind the headlights once you opened up the wheel wells, so I did both of mine directly through the wells. I swore that'd be the last time I changed bulbs too haha.

Did you get the actual LED's or the Halogen LED lookalikes? I did the same with MY14 Limited and it was tough. I went with the Phillips Crystal vision and I'm happy with the results, but always looking for opinion on other bulbs so let me know how you like them.

They were good but I'm sending them back to Amazon because I'm getting an eagle eye housing for the jeep, they look much nicer. Here is a link: SPPC Black Projector Plank Style Headlights For Jeep Grand Cherokee - (Pair) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0128SBZ8C..._Hqf6wbJXHHGPZ
