Re: 08' factory projectors in a 05'.....need some pointers

i think u can go either route i used the factory bulbs and ballasts cause i wanted reliable ones that were gonna last. i tried hid kits and had bad experiences although a lot of people use them with no issue. but i think your safe to do it either way but you definitely need d1s, 9006 bulbs will not fit in that headlight

Re: 08' factory projectors in a 05'.....need some pointers

I think I'm going to buy a set of these;open them and paint them. I wonder if OEM Projectors would be better than a retro-fit?

Re: 08' factory projectors in a 05'.....need some pointers

you need an oem Jeep/ChryCo d1s bulb and ballast for each lamp. For them to be plug and play...you also need a 9006 hid relay harness and follow my instructions in the how to forums.

I guess you could also buy an aftermarket d1s kit and make it work

Re: 08' factory projectors in a 05'.....need some pointers

I did the OEM upgrade on my 05, it was pretty simple. Scott's instructions were a ton of help. I am not sure why everyone keeps saying buy aftermarket HID kits, the lamps th eOP bought are factory replacements and are set up to be a 100% swap for someone that has OEM HID's.

Grebes, my advise to you; you have already saved a ton by getting the lamps at that cost. Get the OEm ballast and get some D1S bulbs, ebay will be your friend on this one. you will need two of these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/08-10...item231392b386

then get the bulbs:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2-x-D...item336bb672d8

then get what ever scott tells you and follow his write up!

you will love the results
