Halogen to LED

I'm sitting here banging my head trying to replace my headlights. I purchased a matching LED kit for my 2014 GC Laredo with the regular halogens and non his projectors. I can't seem to get the bulbs out without removing the bumper is there a simpler way to do it? Hands are too big to access through the wheel weld.

Re: Halogen to LED

Not sure about your model year, but with my 2012 I can remove some of the plastic re-usable rivets holding the inner fender liner to the fender and then push back the fender liner to have more room to reach the low beam bulbs.

Go through the top. The passenger side is easy. The drivers side just remove the air filter housing. Takes 2 mins.

No biggie. I should be getting these in the mail Thursday. I hear there pretty good. For 50 bucks why not try it.

I lowered the left bulb as low as it can go and then lowered the right to match, not sure if that is how you are suppose to align them.

I have an Hid set from xenon depot in my lows. But I'm looking to change them to LED. But those are the led fogs I bought.
