any other projetor headlamps (hid conversion) aside from angel eye ones?

im looking to to the hid conversion to my fog lamps and headlamps. i was doing research and found that non-hid oem headlamps are not meant for hid kits. since i wanna do things the right way, but dont have the $$ to do the conversion to an '09 for the stock hid's, i saw my only other option were projector headlamps....

so im looking at dashzracing.com and holy shat are the projector halo looking headlamps ugly.

really? thats my only choice? honda looking headlamps?


(btw im new here, my names davey, i just got a wk a month ago. got an old man emu lift on layaway, should have it in a month. youll be hearing from me a lot)

i read on jeep forum that you to make it fit on an 07 you need a 08-10 grille, bumper and headlamps. (thats just what i read so dont jump on me for it)

Re: any other projetor headlamps (hid conversion) aside from angel eye ones?

if youre creative its not really necessary. I was the very first person to do the conversion and at first I stayed with my 06-07 bumper and made some fillers for the space at the bottom of the lamp.....just used some plastic from another bumper and filler. I then had it painted to match. It wasnt perfect...but Im sure if you had better skills than me....you could do it better. Let me find some pics for ya....
