Re: HID Question.

I have installed HID's on my last 2 vehicles and never had any issue with radio reception, why do they effect the jeep?

Re: HID Question.

i have slims in my fogs and they work great. i had the regular ballasts for the lows and they were junk. if you can get the slims they are a great deal andmake the vehicle looks great. the regular ballasts just caused alot of interference with the radio.

Re: HID Question.

I don't listen to FM much but the visability at night IMO > losing FM reception.
