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

sure....just pull it up to a wall or garage door and adjust it up/down to your liking


To get the auto leveling headlamps...you would have to change the entire wirinh harness from what Ive been told

Are you asking me?

If so yes, I originally had halogen headlights. Then I bought a set of OEM HIDs from Scott and I bought the D1S bulbs he was selling as well.

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

the ballasts are actually part of the lamps....the bulbs depends on the seller

The ballast is built into the headlight assembly. It was included with the sale.

thank you for your answers
they can be purchased used on ebay, car-part.com or new at the Jeep dealer.

4300K is stock and it depends on whether the seller includes the bulbs or not in the sale. If you order a new set from the dealer...they come with bulbs.

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

scottina & tman : when you install OEM Hid you have to make some adjustments to the car's computer to recognize the xenons ? so you won't get any bulb errors ?
