Re: HID fogs ballast mount question.........

Here you go bro!

[QUOTE=KlutcH;59935]Just put the HID's in, I'm very happy with them, Very easy install however ALOT of ****in wires ughhhh lol....

Anyways heres some pictures of where I mounted the ballasts and then some pictures at night, sorry I'll take better ones later but I just wanted to show all you.

I mounted all 4 ballasts on the metal support just underneath the grill, drilled 4 holes through the metal and secured the ballasts really well on the metal, I'll have better pictures when I clean the jeep, I just got home from the lake so there is bugs everywhere!!

Re: HID fogs ballast mount question.........

Yeah, I found that place was the best, all you need to do is take off the front grill..

Matt did a better one where he actually mounted underneath his bumper cover, but that requires more work

Re: HID fogs ballast mount question.........

I used the real bumper. It's got empty spot on the edges and it'll fit ballast. I used a small bolt and locking nut with a zip tie and double sided tape holds it in place and out of the elements.

Re: HID fogs ballast mount question.........

Is the only way to get a clear view of the area around the fogs to take off the wheel well cover? I want to add relays for my HID fogs (I didn't do the install) and want everything to be neat and locked down. The gap between the wheel well cover and the bumper isn't big enough for me to really see what I'm doing.

Re: HID fogs ballast mount question.........

The cover appears to still be on in those pics. I want to have more room than that. Looks like I will be taking the wheel well cover off which will cost me an extra $30 for the rivets/setter. Bummer.
