Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

The color is up to your liking. Most guys here go 5000k or 6000k on the lows. Myself along with a few other members here have 3000k fog light bulb we swap out with in bad weather seasons. 3000k puts out better lumens. Usually the color is a matter of personal choice and is the same price. If any I believe the 3000k may be like another $5. or so.

(The lumen (symbol: lm) is the SI unit of luminous flux, a measure of the power of light perceived by the human eye. Luminous flux differs from radiant flux, the measure of the total power of light emitted, in that luminous flux is adjusted to reflect the varying sensitivity of the human eye to different wavelengths of light. The lumen is defined in relation to the candela by
1 lm = 1 cdsr
That is, a light source that uniformly radiates one candela in all directions radiates a total of 4π lumens. If the source were partially covered by an ideal absorbing hemisphere, that system would radiate half as much luminous flux—only 2π lumens. The luminous intensity would still be one candela in those directions that are not obscured.)

OEM HID's from the factory are around 4300k-4500k and are in theory the brightest but the color temp is close to yellow so most guys go up 1k or so for the pure white look. Most kits come with the same components. (1 Ballast per bulb, relay kit for lows, and all the wires and everything needed. No splicing, all plug and play)

The 2 types of lights are reflectors, and projector. Projector’s are a lot better. Reflector’s are usually the stock light housing with an aftermarket HID kit. It scatters the light patters and some may argue that it is illegal. Some makes have OEM reflectors but not Jeep. Projectors are the ones that look to have a glass ball inside the light housing and it controls the light pattern much better. They have a more defined cutoff and some have auto leveling/adaptive feature. here's a color chart where you can kinda get an idea...
