Also do I need something special to bypass error message at startup, or those light replacement does not give any error messages?

Thanks in advance

Thanks! I went with Nitro Blue because the headlights & fogs were both available in that color. Mirror White for the headlights would probably be the brightest. But both of these are more of a color change not an output increase. No errors since these are halogen replacements.

They look white, maybe hint of blue in rain. My guess if you tried the Mirror White for headlights they would still look like they match. Let me know what you go with.

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

Like Jeep mentioned the Nitro Blue 4400k matches the color of the DRL's perfectly. I went with the Ion Spark White 3800k for the fogs, they are a little more "white" and brighter than the Nitro Blue color.

Here is a pic of the exact bulbs I used. Just type the description in Amazon and you'll see them.
Also like Jeep mentioned you need to trim 1 of the tabs on the fog bulb only, very easy once you see it.
The left side is the headlight bulb 9005
Right side is the fog 9009

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

2016 TH uses a 9005 HL bulb which is different from a 15. Now are the Canadian TH the same as American ones that I can't say. The worse thing that can happen if the bulb is wrong is you send it back. I orderd the wrong ones too (ones from Jeeps video) but though Amzon so returning them was no biggie. I didn't even open the package, as soon as I removed my bulb I knew it was wrong.
Hope this helps

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

I had the Putco mirror whites for about four months. While it was a whiter light, and matched the DRL's perfectly, I found the output was no significant difference. I swapped out for Xenon Depot LED's, and they matched the DRLs (see my avatar), and offered a slight improvement in output, especially lighting up the sides of the road. I am now considering going for the Xenon Depot plug and play HID kit, as they seem to be the best aftermarket option right now to maximize output and increased visibility.

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

I really wish people would read the whole thread from the beginning....straight from Xenon depo Web page. PLEASE READ THIS!!!

JEEP CHEROKEE (KL) FORWARD LIGHTING INFORMATION
2016 JEEP CHEROKEE (KL) LIGHTING
While not much may have changed from an aesthetic standpoint between the 2015 Jeep Cherokee, and the 2016 Jeep Cherokee, Jeep decided to change at least two things relating to the headlights. The first thing that changed is that the 2016 Jeep Cherokee now uses a 9005 halogen bulb, which means that you would need to order a 9005 HID kit if you wanted to upgrade the lights to HID. The second thing that changed is that a standard resistor is not going to be sufficient to ensure the HID kit functions properly. You have to select the "2015+ Mopar" option in order to ensure that the lights function properly. Without choosing this option, you will not get all the necessary components to ensure the lights function right. Just like before, if you've got a 2016 Jeep Cherokee and you are looking for the brightest possible output, we strongly suggest going with a 4300k 9005 HID kit; as the higher kelvin kits simply produce more color, but less useable light
