Which HID Kit should I buy???

Hey guys,

I am a newbie here at the Jeep Garage. I am looking into some new HID headlights for my '05 WK JGC Laredo. I have read a bunch of threads and I am getting overwhelmed on what to buy! So if I could have your opinions, that would help.

So from what I've read, the Xenon Depot seems to be everyone's favorite, but to be honest I really don't want to spend $200 on headlights. I have read some decent things about Xentec and found this set on Ebay for $43
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2005-...t_11851wt_1032

I understand they may not be top of the line, but $43 seems hard to beat. But from what I have read, I believe I also need to purchase a relay if I bought these, correct?
If anyone knows of any other deals, or there are any sellers on here that can get me a decent deal (I don't really want to spend more than $100) PM me.

Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

you will need a relay for your lows definitely, the fogs are hit and miss to be honest.

Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

Thanks guys! What is his exact screen name so I can find him? I also have fogs so you think I can get a deal if I buy both? I found this quote from last month:

And you cannot beat the lifetime warranty. If anything goes wrong, I'm covered.

Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

Isn't there an underscore... tcm_glx ...? Can't remember.

King9988 - I'm not sure if he's going to offer you the same deal. I know at the time he was desperately looking to move a few kits, so he may have dipped low only briefly. PM him though... he always tries to get you the bets deal he can.

Thanks Matt, just found him and PM him. He also just put up a post for fog lights on sale so we'll see what kind of deal i can get.

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm sure I'll be asking you guys more questions soon and I'll be sure to post pics of the upgrades!

you bring up a question with that one....what is the difference in equipment? does the difference reflect the price difference?

also, just so the info is out there,

Lows = 9006
Fogs = H4

.... right?

Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

Lows are 9006, fogs I'm not sure. I have Tony Baja (TCM GLX) kit for fogs and lows. They work fine. Had an issue with a bad ballast and Tony made more than good for it. From what I hear the Xenon Depot's are a little more premium. Depending on what kit you get it'll have the filter that will keep it from interfering with the FM radio. My kit it disrupts the FM when I'm sitting still or driving slow. On the HWY it's not too bad. For the $ Tony's kits aren't bad at all. But like everything in life you get what you pay fore. Both Co. are vendors on here...

Re: Which HID Kit should I buy???

i'm not trying to stir up trouble or anything, i just wanted to know how it all works... for example...

coffee.... the more expensive, usually the more exotic, different flavor blends, etc..

my question was, with HID's. 5K, 6K or 8K..... they are all more or less the same... so is the expense in peripherals? quality of materials? quality of work in the wiring harness? light output? color quality? etc... I'm asking as more of a "HID tech" question, not a vendor v.s. vendor question.
