Re: Will Stillen eyelids that were used on an 05 fit on an 08 wk?

There are two different stillen covers: One for the 05-07 lights which goes all the way to the grill and there is another one for the 08+ which is just a turn signal cover. The difference is because the front bumper of the 05-07 is quite different than the one of the 08+ which explains why the 08+ lights leave the huge gap with the bumper.






If you retrofitted OEM xenon on a 05-07, there is a huge gap between the headlight and the bumper which is mostly covered by stretching a 05-07 stillen cover on them but that still leaves a gap. Its not the best but beats not putting them on.

The best option, IMO is to make a full conversion like iJeep's beauty. Its awesome and relatively cheap if you are in the states. Check here


The second best option IMO is to either cut the humps off the 08 bumper like Scott did. The pic below is from his retrofit thread and shows (here) the 08+stillen covering the corner and the custom "humps".









the way to the grill and smaller ones for the 08+ that cover only the

Re: Will Stillen eyelids that were used on an 05 fit on an 08 wk?

I have an 08 front end now as I wasnt happy with the scottina humps. I never really cared for the stillens 08-10 covers either. they made the 08+ headlamps a funny shape IMO. I did buy the 08-10 SRT Ben covers....they are cut a little different. But alas...he is no longer making the covers from what i hear.

Re: Will Stillen eyelids that were used on an 05 fit on an 08 wk?

If you are looking for a type of stillen, talk to Scott^^^ I forget who the member is, but there is a guy who makes custom painted covers.

From what I have seen and heard from other members, this guys are much better fitting then the stillen brand.

Talk to Scott, I know he bought a set.
