I have never done an HID retrofit but am seriously considering doing one to my 2012 Altitude. At first I was thinking about just buying and painting some Limited/Overland HID headlights or buying some SRT8 ones (since they are already painted black) but both of those will be very costly! I do not mind getting my hands dirty but was wondering if anyone knew what parts/tools I will need to take on a project like this?
For example, would the Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini complete kit from TRS be everything I need for the HID conversion (Bi-xenon Morimoto Mini Stage III Kit (H1)
Are there any other relays or harnesses that need to be purchased with this?
I understand that I will also probably need a dremel tool, headlight ribbon sealer, and other tools to get the job done, so is this kit really the only other thing I need (besides the headlights) to do the retrofit? And are there any other kits you guys would recommend that are cheaper than $270?
Sorry for all the questions, you guys have inspired me, but I am still scared to start prying them headlights open and taking on a project like this! Eventually, I'd like to do the retrofit with some 6500k lights, replace my highbeams with some different bulbs to somewhat match the HIDs, possibly convert my fogs with an HID kit, and disable my drls (I'm just not a fan of them personally). Thanks in advance for your help!
