Also would anyone recommended the 35w kit or 55w. Also is 4300K what i want to match the factory headlight xenon's? As for installation would i get away with turning the wheel and going threw fender liner or will i have to remove bumper.
On the 2014 Grand Cherokees you would need a H11 HID kit and unlike the headlights you don't need any relay harness or capacitors.
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.
