5000k HIDs on my 2011 Laredo

Hooked up the Xtreme Kit from Xenon Depot the other day and thought I'd share some pics HIDs are in 5000k, and iPhone pictures don't really do them much justice lol.
If you have any questions regarding the lights, installation or anything shoot away! I'd love to help out.



Low and Hi-beams on


Here is a crappy little video I made while driving to show the lights on a dark street. I forgot I had the music on that loud and it was on my favorite Sirius station, so please excuse that haha.

Nope, just the H11 low beam conversion to HIDs.

Yeah, I'll get around to that eventually. Just dropped some $$$ on an intake, exhaust and my HID kit. Currently saving for some wheels and tires

Re: 5000k HIDs on my 2011 Laredo

Looks good! I have really been debating if I should do this or not. I would like for the stock headlights to be whiter and the fogs to match. My only question is if it would be too bright for other drivers or if it would look bad without the Bi-xenon headlights. Any lights flickering or other issues after the install?


Also, I’m interested to see what exhaust you getting. I want dual exhaust on my V6 and thinking about the OEM exhaust on the Hemi.

Nah, I don't think it would be too bright as long as you have your headlights adjusted correctly. I haven't had one person flash me in the past couple days ive done some night time highway driving. I'd go with 5000k in the low beams and fogs to give it a nice bright white look without too much blue hue to it. And I've had no flickering or any issues since the install. The whole install probably took about 45 minutes and was a piece of cake. It was my first time doing them and I didn't run into any problems.

I also have a somewhat custom exhaust set up. We cut out the stock suitcase muffler in the middle of the exhaust and y piped it to keep the single exit out the back. On the rear end we cut off the stock resonator and installed a 12226 series magnaflow muffler. It has a really mean low growl to it, not too much highway drone to it either(besides giving it some extra gas up hills). Definitely not a very quiet set up but I love it.

Trust me, your HID lights will glare and annoy other drivers regardless if they flash you or not.
