Projectors for the WK's have 3 little triangle that build up (looks like little supporters) the projector housing.
Basically like an egg-yolk pattern. Sorry scott stole your pic

Re: HID Projectors???

the ebay style projectors aren't true projectors, or atleast they dont have as good of a cut off as quality projectors.

You could also retrofit some projectors from any type of car that comes with them.. i used to have an rsx, and a lot of people on the rsx forum retro fitted s2000 projectors in rsx headlamps, because s2k projectors had one of the best cut offs, and rsx didnt come with projectors

I have been tossin this idea around, its not that easy to do, but it would be well worth it if everything worked out. There is also a company called retro solutions that does it, i dont know if they do other headlights though

I have a spare headlight laying in my garage from by blackout mod gone bad lol, i was thinking of using this to mock up the projectors

If you are unsure of what i'm talking about let me know and i can try to find some pictures form the rsx forum... or anyone that knows anyone that has done this to a jeep feel free to chime in

Re: HID Projectors???

here is the projector you would use.. or one similar, then you make a shroud to make it look all pretty and have something to mount to

Re: HID Projectors???

i think this would be really awesome for someone to do, the projectors are a little pricy especially not knowing if it will turn out good. they sell for around 200-250
