Great. I'm done putting everything together, glued, and wired along with Scotts upgrade to hids. I'll get pics up later. I'm going to purchase the relay you have but I don't think I'll go the switches route. Don't think I want to spend more money or open up my dash and stuff. So now I have to connect them to the parking lights?

What's the best way to splice them or connect them? Which wires r the parking?

I haven't searched yet but how do you even get the headlights off to replace? (Preferably without taking the bumper off)

I'll search tomorrow when I have time as well as put up some pictures!!

I don't have the exact answer to this. You could just splice them in at the headlight. Make sure to use solder and shrink wrap though.

Good luck with that. From the times I've done it (aiming and reaiming) there is no way to do it without taking off the bumper. I'm pretty good at it now though. Doesn't take more than 15 minutes.

You may have to scrape off some paint to get a good connection.. If you don't want to do that just keep looking.

For any future readers, it wasn't so hard taking the bumper off, literally took me 20-30 minutes the first time only cause I had to take my grill guard off, but without that it should take about 15 or so.


I dont mind scraping off some paint. I saw another thread where they did this:
How To: 6k HID's Lows/Fogs on an 08 WK - Jeep Garage - Jeep Forum

He painted and primer'd the holes that he drilled. I'm not sure what paint and what primer does for ground wires, and is it necessary?
Also There are some holes that are randomly there, could I just use those holes after scraping off the paint?
Should I use any nut/bolt that would fit the ground wire holes or are there specific kinds of nut/bolts to get?


Theres a hole on top:


Another hole or two here:



-------------------------

WIRING

I'm pretty much going by this chart from where I bought the relay (you said you were using the same one)



I'm still a little confused at which wires actually plug into the relay..The wire labeled (from car) would just be the plug that would've gone into the low beam? or something else?

Thanks for pretty much walking through this process btw SVT; doesn't seem like there is much of a presence on this forum helping noobies..

Not a problem. Yes "From car" is where to plug in the connector that would have gone into your low beam bulb.
