Just because people aren't flashing you doesn't mean they aren't hindered by your lights. I see people with hid's in factory housing all the time 99 times out of 100 they are hurting the eyes of oncoming cars, some are just worse than others.

I understand your position on this.. All I can say is I did a lot of research with these same type of convos before I bought mine. Based on the feedback from others who did it before me all I can say is that the housings contain the light well and the xenon depot kit is a great quality kit and is not over powering. I even tested them against the wall before I drove and there was a defined line to match the halogen one. Just my experience that's all

Also running Xenon Depot 35watt HIds in my 12 that came with stock halogens. They look awesome add more light and never get flashed by on comers. If you want to Add it then add it.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

How do you check if you have reverse polarity?

Just look at the way the connectors go together and look at the black and white wires. They should match. I had a 2013 and I did not need to switch them

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Spaniardstud: You would need to get an H11 HID kit for this upgrade. I would go with 4300k for the whitest, brightest, and most OEM functionality. Use coupon code 'moparhid' upon checkout to save $25 on your order.

Chicago_Style & subbie09 - Thanks for the feedback

Steve

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

I installed my kit on Monday and found that taking the bumper off was definitely the way to go. I'm not very mechanical at all and taking the bumper off was really easy and made the install a lot smoother. I got the 5000k kit and love it so far!

I agree.. I took the bumper off because it's hard to find any place to mount the ballast
