HID kit for 2014 Cherokee Limited

Picked up my Jeep this weekend and since I didn't get the Lux II package I don't have LED or xenon. I still want to incorporate HID's those since the headlights already have the projections on them.

I know it's early on and vehicle is new. Any recommendations on where to go to buy and what to get. I want to do it right and make sure it doesn't fail.

I noticed the xenondepot is that the best choice?

I purchase all of my HID stuff from Retro Solutions. There's cheaper stuff out there, but it's just that, cheap. They have great customer service too.

Even if you can (I'm not sure), I'd still drop in some aftermarket HID's and save some money. The 2013 Ram guys with Halogen Projectors have been dropping in HID kits with great success. The Rams use an HIR2/9012 bulb, I'm not sure if the Jeeps are the same or not.

Yea haven't done one yet...

Passenger side light looks to have a little room to work with. Driver side looks more difficult and having to take things in and out.

Any good installers near central NJ?

The manual states:

Headlamps (Low Beam)- H11
Premium Headlamps (Low/High Beam) - D3S
Headlamps (High Beam) - 9005
Headlamps (Low Beam) High Intensity Discharge (HID) - D1S

Not sure what Headlamp versus premium headlamp is?

I believe it's referring to the different headlights offered.

The LED headlights headlamps are D3S bulbs.

The base model headlights headlamps are the h11 headlight bulb.
