Headlight and interior light questions

Recently purchased a 2015 Altitude for my wife. I have spent hundreds of hours on this forum reading about headlight and interior light upgrades. Now I am more confused than ever.

I am looking to replace interior bulbs with LEDs but I have read and seen different bulb sizes on peoples builds. Can anybody please tell me how many and what bulb number to purchase? Also, do I need the canbus or any other special set up so they work appropriate?

I am also wanting to upgrade headlights to either HID or LEDs. After reading hundreds of pages, I am still not sure what to buy or who to buy it from. Xenon depot seems to be the most popular but have read a lot of confusion as to several issues (DRL on or off, Relays, and others). Any advise would be much appreciated. Thank you.

What I bought 6000k vanity and glove box addon 6000k (bit brigher than stock):
Jeep Grand Cherokee LED Interior Package (2011-Present)

What I shouldv'e bought and recomend (much brighter than stock):
Jeep Grand Cherokee Premium LED Interior Lighting Package 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012

and I would go HID and you will need a canbus adaptor and shut off the DRL. I didnt use relay harnees and it's been working fine it will be a year in August. LED headlights from what I have seen in person is a bit dim for my liking plus it will have a big heatsink with fan hanging off the end that can fail.

hope this helps

Re: Headlight and interior light questions

as for interior lights, check out precisionled.com.

Jeep Grand Cherokee LED Interior Package (2011-Present)

this is their standard LED interior kit. ive heard from others on here that the premium is no different. they offer a selection of colors (cool white, bright white, emerald green, dark blue, and ruby red). they have an install video posted on this page, the only tough part would be doing the trunk lights. im wanting to do this but hesitant because im afraid to take off the whole trunk trim panel(i have an altitude as well as my first car and im afraid to be the 16 year old dumb*** that ruins who knows what in the trunk panel). however, seems rather easy to do the whole thing, and you can even mix and match some of the lights (glove box, vanity mirror) for example im thinking about doing a red base for the maps, footwells, domes, and trunk and then white for glove blox/vanity mirror cause itd have a cool red white and blue 'merica theme goin lol.

as for headlights, im just as confused as you are. everything ive read contradicts other posts and have no idea what to do. xenon depot is well rated however and im sure if you give them a call they could help you out.

also would suggest doing black lug nuts/locks on the rims, and the black grille inserts. anyways good luck with your led and headlight situation, and post some pics/feedback if you end up following through with this!

15 White Altitude- I bought the Precision premium blue led interior package and it is very bright and looks great. Do not get the rear plate lights since mine came with very bright white led lights, stock.

Re: Headlight and interior light questions

I am not against using the precision led kit but see that it only comes with 8 bulbs and can be upgraded for another $23 for vanity bulbs. Those would most likely be the most used bulbs in the car since my wife spends more time looking in the vanity than she does looking in the rear view mirror.

I found these on amazon but not sure of the quality. I am sure that you get what you pay for.

I am sure I will waste my $20 on the amazon set and end up buying the precision leds. The story of my life.

Future mods are based on how big my money tree grows this year. For some reason its not growing as planned. Thank you all for your help
