Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

What does the stock system on an 08+ use for powering the HID's since you had to splice some wires and use a wiring harness?

Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

Then shouldn't it just plug into the assembly or have wires already there which would plug into the stock wiring harness and not require splicing wires?

Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

the 08 HID harness is completely different from all other WK headlight harnesses. Its also part of the complete harness for the truck...so you cant just buy the headlight harness and add it

Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

How much of a PITA is it to remove/install the headlight assembly?

Do you have part numbers for them, I haven't been able to find a listing online

Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

Does the low beam plug that plugs into the halogen low beam bulb just plug right into this HID assembly? No re-wiring/slicing needed?

Re: 2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

Damn Scott I want to do this too!!! Do you know what is different for the 08's than your work on the 05-07? Or is the wiring similar?

I want to buy these headlights...you got yours off eBay right?

no.....the 05-07 harness doesnt match up with the 08-09 HID lamps harness at all.

the 08-09 WK with the OEM HID's has a completely different harness from any other WK. You can use my how to by wiring an HID 9006 relay harness to the 08-09 HID light ballast power wire and ground. It is super easy. You then reuse your turn, high lamp and marker light from your truck.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

How much of a gap is there?
Do you have a daylight pic from the front and a night shot with the lights on?
