wj HID low beam kit

Anyone have a DIY for head light (single beam) installation on a 04 grand cherokee, like where to put mount the ballasts etc. I have the ones from baja and have the regular size ballasts with the relays. thanks guys

Re: wj HID low beam kit

pretty much the same as the wk bro. The relay harness is the most important. I always recommend using the factory grounds on the wk. They are easy and right beside the headlamp. You can also make your own grounding point. Just make sure it is on the unibody and you sand it down to the bare metal.

You don't need Relays for 99-04 WJ's. Sorry Scott. I know your trying to help.

Re: wj HID low beam kit

I didn't need relays in mine. I got some for my friend too. He didn't need relays on his WJ.
