2011 Overland HID Replacements

Hey everyone, my first post here, will probably have several more in the future.

Anyway, my passenger side headlight turned the fabled pink of a dying Xenon gas HID and needs replacement. Not knowing anything about HIDs I asked the dealer to do it, but with a quote of 250 bones I opted to do it myself. The job is easy enough, I just don't know what kind of bulb to get. My old 98 GC was a simple $20 fix, but HIDs seem like a different animal when it comes to picking the right one. Also, is there a second bulb for high beams? I see low beam HIDs all over, but isn't the same bulb used for high and low (my high looked pink as well so I am assuming it is so)?

I want to stay as close to the OEM look (D1S 4300K I believe, or even a pair of 5000Ks) without paying the OEM price. Also, after reading several reviews I would like to avoid the whole "blown ballast" ordeal.

Can someone point me in the right direction for a set of replacement bulbs that wont brake the bank or blow the ballast? Trying to put a TJ back together and save for a wedding, hundreds of dollars is not what I anticipated spending on a light bulb.


Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the garage.
Your jeep is a WK2, not a WJ. Maybe that someone here will chime in, but you have a better change in the WK2 section.

Our XenonDepot D1S Xtreme bulbs are a great value compared to the OEM bulbs. They are available in a 5000K that is essentially a pure white color. (OEM is 4300K) You can use the forum code "KBD1S" at checkout to save 15% off on them as well.
