We recommend going with a 35w hid kit for a few different reasons. Sure 55w hid kits do produce slightly more light (approximately 15%-20%) than a 35w hid kit but this increased light output usually results in a less even light spread and additional glare. There is a reason that all cars that come with hid lights from the factory still use 35w technology and not 55w technology. These 55w hid kits often overdrive the 35w hid bulb to obtain the increased light output. As a result, you can expect the hid bulb to burn hotter which can damage your headlight. You can also expect a significantly decreased bulb life.

4300k would be the way to go in order to match your factory hid headlights and they are also the brightest color temperature you can get.

As for the installation, i know forum members have done it both ways. You would have more room to install the hid kit if you remove the bumper though.

this post was made erroneously - you do need a relay harness and capacitors for both the low beams and fogs on the 2014 grand cherokee!!!!

So what would everything be that I would need to match my fogs in hid to my factory hid lights on my 2014JGC Overland. Do you also sell a kit with the harnesses and capacitors?

Re: Whats needed 2014 HID FOGs help

Yes: You would need to purchase this H11 HID kit. I would suggest going with 4300k for the brightest possible output, and best match to your OEM HID low beams.

Use coupon code 'MOPARHID' upon checkout to save $25 on your order, and ensure we include the necessary capacitors for you.

Awesome! As long as you get all the parts you need than it will work perfectly in your 2014

You can review many of the great reviews on these forums for our XenonDepot HID kits installed in 2014 Grand Cherokees.

Yes it does if you use coupon code "MOPARHID" to get the canbus fix as well at no charge

Re: Whats needed 2014 HID FOGs help

Ordered today, I will let you know how the install comes out.


Edit, , after I ordered I looked at the install link and it appears to be a link for the headlights. I am looking to change my fog lights, and match the color to the head lights not replace them. Fogs are the h11 as well?

Re: Whats needed 2014 HID FOGs help

I see you offer the kit in 3000k as well...have you had any feedback on that? Since the fogs are basically useless for everyday lighting I only use them as designed - for foggy conditions. I'd like to go 3000k if you've had good results with that...any info is appreciated, thanks!
