After Market HID kits

Does anyone know a good supplier for after market HID lights for a Jeep Grand Cherokee that they have had good luck with? My Jeep currently uses 9006 halogen bulbs w/ reflector housings. I want to make sure that I can increase my visibility without creating a risk for other drivers, even though that sounds like an oxymoron. Thanks.

look for a set of projectors, HIDs are not made for halogen housings

Re: After Market HID kits

You can either upgrade to HIDS, we have a few vendors, check the vendors section.

Or you can upgrade to projectors.

Re: After Market HID kits

Since you've got an 07, upgrading to projectors would either mean settling for the shitty ricer projectors OR getting 08+ OEM projector housings which require either stillen covers (to cover the gap at the bottom of the 08+) or an 08+ bumper swap.

You CAN put HIDs into reflectors (what you have now) even though its not recommended and you'd have to re-adjust the lights down to keep from blinding traffic and getting tickets.

Re: After Market HID kits

Until I got projectors, I used HID's in stock housings with no problems. Honestly, it's not a big deal. If you don't want to spend a lot, just get an HID kit from one of our vendors.

Re: After Market HID kits

I also have HID's in my OEM fog and headlights... i love them, one of the best mods i've done... i would recommend going with 6k lights. there are a couple vendors on here that are more than helpful when it comes to this stuff.
