Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs

Hello everyone. I just bought 6000K HIDs for the lows and fogs for my truck. The lows were pretty easy to connect and work. But I did one side of the fogs and it doesn't work. I know that there is a possibility that the problem is that I need relays (which I have) but does anyone know how to route them and connect them on an 04 Jeep GC? Any photos of connections and mounting techniques? Thanks

Also if I can't figure this out, I was thinking if anybody is in the NY area and would like to help me connect these, let me know.

Re: Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs

Thanks for the help, apparently I had to use relays. I feel like an idiot even asking, but luckily I got it all figured out, very easy. The lows seems to have a bluish tinge but thats mainly the angle and the lighting. Its actually a pretty decent white. Heres a quick photo:

Re: Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs

Looks just like mine. I'm switching my fogs to 3000k for the winter time and switch my lows to 6k. I'm tired of 8k

Thank you for confirming that I did everything right. Please post photos when you do that combo. Hows was the light output for 8K? What is really blue?

Re: Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs

I mean it's ok. They looked cool at first but now they are kinda ricey most I can show you is this recent pic. Here's 8k lows and 6k fogs. A hint of a difference but they are different.

Re: Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs

Thanks Paul, hopefully at the next M&G we can get some good night shots.

Question for the ground wire should I cover the area? I think some water usually runs by there when it rains.
