Pull the wheel well liner out and look at the bulb. Or look in the owners manual...

Halogen HIR2

Per users manual. There's a lot of helpful info in that book.

New Limited W/ Nav. HID Question

Thx guys I actually did that but hid kits don't have HIL2 bulb sizes, so I'm trying to find out if anyone has put hids in there cherokee. I think we can do bulb size 9006 and just have to shave one of the tabs on the bulb and it will snap rite in.

I think you need to research lamps a bit more. The HIR2 is a halogen lamp. Not HID.

The other lamp is the xenon replacement lamp fr the HIDs available in the limited.

If you're looking for brighter halogen lamp then the hir2 size is what you're looking for. The sylvania size is 9012. 9006 will fit with a modification.

(There may be some things incorrect in this. I've only done a limited ammount of research and had a hard time finding silverstars in 9012 size at auto parts stores. I'm hesitant to modify the 9006. I've removed the lamp and was glad to find it's sealed in a water tight compartment (atleast it is on the trailhawk).

I'm interested in putting silverstars in just fr the appearance. The yellow headlamps are very off putting next to the white led DRLs.

When ordering aftermarket HID's you order by what your vehicle come with, that way the tabs are correct on the hid bulbs.

That would be your best bet. Modify a hid bulb with a 9006 base to fit in place of the hir2.
