Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

I'm looking to upgrade to some halo projectors for my 08 Limited. I see there are alot of options out there. I actually already bought a set but had to return since they didn't fit my jeep (straight edge on bottom instead of the 2 humps like on top). LED or CCFL? I'm leaning towards the black dual ccfl angel eye halos, but just wanted some other opinions and ideas from other same year/model jeeps. (i already have 5000K lows and 3000K fogs installed)

Adam

plus...i'm still desperately trying to get a contact for whoever does the wiring mod to make 05-06 tails pair up with 07+ jeeps. I have my led tails just sitting in my garage.

Re: Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

Yeah I sent him an email but never got a response. And if you notice, I was the last person to reply to that thread that you sent me a link to but got nothing there either. All his threads are old and I looks like no new traffic going towards those threads. There has to be someone else out there that does these mods if he isn't anymore. I took my tails to a prof. installer and he wasn't able to decipher the connection. I'll even take a diagram describing the splicing but the only one I saw wasn't accurate.

Thanks anyway man.

Re: Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

LED.

CCFL doesn't last as long as LED. Especially when you're talking aftermarket.

Re: Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

Any recommendations on brand? The problem is finding halos for my year. I can only find ccfl if I want a whole kit. The vendor Flashtech on this forum has them for srt's.

Re: Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

so you are looking for projectors with Halos? these are the aftermarket ones=http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-06-07-08-JEEP-GRAND-CHEROKEE-BLK-PROJECTOR-HEADLIGHT-/360115530155?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories &hash=item53d88ee9ab and http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/08-09...item1e639161e9
IMO, the aftermarket lights are crap and iirc the light output isnt too great either.

I know of 2 brands that sell halos, Flashtech and AAC. Ill recommend LEDs from Flashtech. The AACs ive read some owners have problems with it usually with the halos starting a fire in their lights. May be installation fault but i didnt want to risk it.

This is a pic of my 6k halos from Flashtech

Re: Best halo projectors for 08 Limited

Cool. Thanks all. I decided to go with black ccfl halo projectors. Even though i kinda agree with DAVY27 that OEM with led halo installed looks a little better.....but i don't think I can handle that mod without breaking something. lol ...Hell i still have these 05-06 led taillights that I cant install cuz I have an 08.

Dave...do you know if
Lipschitz Custom Wiring is still doing the wiring mods for the taillights? I posted on his threads and sent him an email but no response. Do you know of anyone else that does that service?
