Yup, the terminals themselves twist out with a 13mm wrench I believe

Sure but show me a couple "How To's" on the WK2 install, I've searched but only found SixZeroFour...

More questions:

Do you need to cut a hole into the original cap covering the H11 bulb when installing the HID bulb, rendering the cap useless when reverting back to OEM-bulb?
The XenonDepot harness comes with one relay/side I think.
The harnesses I've seen so far shared one relay for both sides of the vehicle...

Can't you just uninstall the bulb and plug and twist the new HID capsule into the socket?

Most harness come with 1 relay that works for both sides. Since Xenon Depot is a more reputable seller I can see why they would have a separate relay for each side. More relays = more protection, so you're good to go.

Waiting for the WK2 to arrive...if that's what's possible then sure.
All the headlight assemblies I've seen so far were closed to prevent dust/dirt from entering, this one seems open?

Manual page 626:
Halogen Headlamps – If Equipped
1. Open the hood.
2. Turn the low or high beam bulb one–quarter turn
counterclockwise to remove from housing.
3. Disconnect the electrical connector and replace the

bulb.

Maybe you're thinking of a rubber housing cap or something. Sounds like you're ordering items for a vehicle you're not even familiar with yet lol. Give it time and I'm sure you'll get it worked out.

Re: Which HID to buy???

Will this void my warranty if I add an HID kit?

No you won't void your warranty lol, it's not like you're changing any of the OEM parts dramatically. Just make sure you use a wiring harness when running it and if you ever have to use your warranty, just take everything off and revert back to normal and no one will even be able to tell a difference.

Like that old saying goes "Good things come to those who wait" I'm sure the reward will be more than worth the wait.

I thought it was just "JeepGarage" but maybe I'm wrong.
