I'm curious to know as well as I have a 2015 GC Altitude.

Once install is done, would you mind posting photos?

No problem, I'll take a few photos of the process. If all goes to plan, I'll be attacking this project next weekend.

All you need is the Jeep PWM.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

@Mr Infinit - The PWM module is designed to work with our HID kits in Jeep Cherokee applications.

It may work for you on your 2014 JGC as long as you don't have DRL activated.

**HOWEVER** the PWM modules only come with 9006 connectors, - you need to contact us to ensure we get you H11 connectors.

Hi Steve,

My 2014 JGC doesnt have DRL and also spoke with someone at your office and he said i DO NOT need the PWM for the 2014 and the PWM is for 2015 and up models.. Is this true??

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Hi,

The 2014 requires you to use our Canbus component when installing an LED bulb. There have been some forum members that have installed our LED headlight kit with no additional components and the light worked just fine.

Some customers have installed our PWM module in their 2014 but with an HID kit.. not LED.

I have successfully installed the Xtreme HID H11 kit from XenonDepot and I have a few things to add to this thread.

Steve at XenonDepot was extremely helpful. There was a slight quirk with one of the components of the kit, he answered my email promptly, arranged a call, and had a replacement out to me within 2 days. Absolutely fantastic to work with; I would definitely recommend this kit for its quality and customer service. Steve was understanding, and a pleasure to chat with.

A few notes about the install. Here's the kit with CANbus laid out:



1. As stated, the positive leads on the relay are too small to fit over the positive post in the fuse box. I bought some larger connectors to splice into the end of the relay to make it fit. After looking at the post, I decided that the supplied connectors were not THAT much smaller, I had planned to drill them out to keep the kit in-tact (the weatherproofing and connection from the kit looked better than what I thought I could do). Instead, I simply snipped them and opened them up a bit. No need to cut or splice on a new connector. Easy:




2. The passenger side bulb was a little tricky to get to. You have to open up the "access" hole in the fender liner and bear hug the front of the car to get things lined up. Use your left hand through the fender liner hole to guide your right hand with the bulb into place. I don't see how removing the bumper gets you any more access to this, as it's tucked pretty high under the fender. I left the bumper on. Take note the orientation of the old halogen bulb when you remove it, and carefully align the new one in place. Here's where I mounted the ballast on the passenger side:



3. Once you remove the airbox, the drivers' side is easier to access. Take your time here, there is also an access hole in the fender liner as well. I thought I could get a little cheeky and mount the components for the drivers' side right on the frame rail here:



This didn't work, as the airbox clearance does not allow it. It's pretty tight as you can see in the following photo. Here's what I ended up doing on the drivers' side:



I ran the wires under the plastic cowl when possible. Everything zip tied and tucked nicely:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Nice write up.. ! I attempted this but one of my HID bulbs blew out.

I need to order a new bulb.

Should i disable the lights from turning on when unlocking the doors, could that ruin an HID light? also i dont have the relay in my kit..?? I am thinking i now need this as I simply have the PWM ??

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Also, what size screws did you use to secure the ballasts??
