Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

I switched out the factory Halogens with 4400K Putco Nitro Blue Halogens for headlights & fogs to match the LED strips. Happy with results!

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

So I took a snap shot of the video where he shows exactly what bulbs he used from Putco for the headlights and fogs. Can't find the fogs anywhere on Amzon or ebay except 6000k. Called Putco direct and they don't even have a listing for a 15/16 Cherokee halogen fog light replacement bulb...lol
I guess I'll wait...

I bought them from KBcarstuff. The picture they show shows 6000K in error. The Nitro Blue are 4400K. Also Mirror White is a good choice at 4000K but they didn't have the fog lights to match in that color. You do have to trim one of the small tabs on the fog bulb to have them fit which is very easy to do.

OK... so the fog light bulbs are done, like you mentioned trimming one of the tabs was easy and it snapped right in.
The 9012 bulb is not correct for a headlight bulb on a 16 TH, it needs a 9005 bulb. The connections and tabs were different.

Yea they did change it. Looked on xenondepot.com and they confirm that for 2016 it's changed to a 9005 bulb. No biggie just called the place where I ordered from and changed it to part# 239005NB.
Hope guys with a 16 read this.
Thanks...

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

Ok, so the Putco 9005 4400k Nitro bulbs are in. Looks great, like 1000x better than stock. Not too much brighter tho but I usually drive with the DRLs and the fog lights on anyway. Being in NYC it's not like you need super bright headlights to see the road, it s pretty well lite from street lights. As long as others see me coming that's what counts. Cheap mod for a great look. Thank you OP for the video and info.

Re: Halogen Lighting Upgrade Video!!!

Your Jeep looks great!

I have just bought a trailhawk 16 and definitely need some upgrade on lights and fog. I live in Canada, in the country. I would like the Putco, as white and bright as possible, can someone recommend the Putco # I need, and parts number please? 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
