Are you thinking of upgrading your 2014 Grand Cherokee's headlights to HID with an HID kit
but are unsure of what to expect?
We recently received some great feedback from forum member tvguy710 who recently installed the XenonDepot 5000k HID Kit in his 2014 Grand Cherokee and was kind enough to post up some pictures and provide feedback. The 2014 Cherokee uses H11 bulbs for the low beams meaning that you would need to order an H11 HID kit if you are considering this upgrade. While Jeep has changed the headlights on the 2014 the overall installation and parts required are the same for 2011+ model year Jeep Cherokee. Here is what you would need to get:
Xtreme HID Kit and select the H11 fitment. If you are unsure about which color temperature to select, keep in mind that 4300k will provide you with the closest output to stock HID lighting and the higher you go in terms of color temperature the less actual useable light output you will get. Please view this HID Kit Buying Guide
for more info.
You will have to use a relay harness and capacitors or HID Kit error code eliminators
when upgrading your headlights to HID. The Xtreme kit will come with a relay harness however you will also need to order the error code eliminators to prevent any sort of flickering or error codes being thrown when the kit is installed.
The XenonDepot H11 Xtreme HID kit will be plug+play. The kit will come with proper H11 connectors that will plug into your vehicle's OEM H11 headlight harness and will not require you to cut, tap, or splice any wires.
This customer chose to remove his headlights in order to install the kit which unfortunately required bumper removal. In some cases, customers have reported that they were able to access the headlights by removing the fender liner and accessing the headlights from the back (2011, 2012, and 2013 models).
