Yeah I know another guy here that installed it without pulling the bumper also. However, I wanted to 1000% completely hide the entire kit, no wires, no ballasts, igniters, nothing at all shows from inside the hood or under the truck. Hell, even if you pull the bumper, it's hard to tell anything aftermarket was added at all. I'm not a fan of zip tie-ing components to the truck, etc. So, I figured I'd just be safe and pull the bumper. That's not to say it cant be done WITHOUT pulling it.

Also, I wanted to pull the headlights as I tried to bake them to paint the bezels black. Bumper has to come off for that. However, these headlights lights don't come apart.

Re: How-To: Fog light HID kit in 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee (pic heavy)

Wow.. Thank you so much for taking the time to put together such a detailed review of the product. I'm sure that many forum members will be using this when installing an HID kit in their fog lights.

I'm trying to remember. Did you purchase a 5000k Xtreme HID kit or a 4300k Xtreme HID kit?

For those interested in this kit, make sure to use coupon code "JG" upon checkout to save $25 on your order. You will also get free shipping for a limited time on the Xtreme HID kit within the continental USA.

Steve
