Re: Headlamp upgrade UK Grand Cherokee Overland CCFL projectors
Yes I did it and now have a very good pair of projector headlights on my WJ. It wasn't a very easy job as I had to order a set of headlamps from the US, which I think cost me about £140 inc shipping from the US.
When they arrived I then had to open up each headlight and flip the cut off mask over so that the beam pointed in the right direction for the UK.
I then re-sealed each headlight with silicon sealant and once this had set I popped them back into the Jeep. There was only up and down adjustment on them so I wasn't sure if the beam pattern would be ok, but I took them to a local garage and they adjusted them to the correct level and they're fine.
I then fitted some nice Osram Nightbreakers in them and now can actually see properly at night! Even with upgraded headlight bulbs in the original headlamps the range of vision was poor, but the new projectors are excellent.
I've had the car MOT'd twice since and it passed as the beam pattern is within the correct limits for the UK. I was a bit unsure if the headlamps would be legal as they are from the US, but no issues raised.
Only minor downside is that they don't have a motor in them to adjust the level when the Jeep is loaded up, so the level adjuster on the dashboard doesn't work, but one of the motors in the old lights had packed up anyway, so no real loss for me.
