i had thought about a piece of Diamond plate steel mounting toggle switches to the plastic piece under the gauges (that piece behind the steering wheel that pulls towards the drivers seat to remove) but i like your idea better! i like having things clean and out of the way

Re: WHY!? Can somebody explain the difference in these CCFL Halo/Projectors?!?

I figure where I got mine, they're outta site outta mind. Only I know they're there, I've had people that drive Lexus, Beemer, etc. ask me about my lights (they don't know the first thing bout vehicles) and I tell 'em they were stock on a limited number of '01 WJ Limiteds, that's how they got the idea for Beemers and newer vehicles having Halos and Projectors. I know, I'm bad lmao.

lol awesome, way to go . When it comes to the Bourgeois fine details don't matter. As long as they can maintain their status quo all other things don't matter.

Are you're fog halo's CCFL as well? They would look sick if they were, like TJXJWJ "Tony's" setup.

Re: WHY!? Can somebody explain the difference in these CCFL Halo/Projectors?!?

My fog halos are a lil bit different than my Gen III's, but it's hardly noticeable and I have my fog halos and my Gen III halos on the same toggle switch so they're on the same toggle switch. The LEDs on the other. I set it up that way because you can change the look around and have either the LEDs on, the halos on, both on or neither on.

So did you ever get the headlights? I'm looking to upgrade my stock headlights to projectors. I have a 2001 Jeep GC Laredo, so I just wanted to verify that the headlights will still fit.

So would I just be able to buy the amber bulbs that come on the non-Laredo GCs, or do they not fit?

They are dimensionally(word?) the same for both Laredo and Limited. Get what you think looks the best for your vehicle.

Good to know, thank you!

Also, what to most people wire their Halos and LEDs to? Is it Halos to parking lights and LEDs to turn signals?

That all depends on what you like. I personally like the look of the CCFL's/Halo's and LED's tied into the parking lights. So you flip the switch forward once and the Halo's and LED's come on and then forward again to turn on your headlights.

I've also seen people rig the halo's to act as turn signals, it's all a matter of preference.

I originally had it set up this way, but quickly changed it. It looked strange, IMO. It looks better all tied into the parking lights to me, but go with what you want.

Cam, what the h*** is that profile picture of yours about?

It's like an optical illusion, I think I see a woman bending over and then next thing you know it looks like antlers.

Re: WHY!? Can somebody explain the difference in these CCFL Halo/Projectors?!?

Mine have the halo's wired into the parking circuit and the LED's to the turn signals. I'm not too sure you want the halos (which are a lot like a flourescent tube) blinking on and off. They really aren't meant for that.

If you have LED halo's, then it doesn't matter.

Here are CCFL's
