Re: 2006 grand cherokee aftermarket headlight opinions

Some look good on some jeeps and some look like crap on others. They come in different colors these days. CCFL's are the bright ones, halos are the dimmer ones. If you don't want to retrofit, you can check the vendors out on here or other places like carid.com.

CCFL'S are a different type of technology used in halo's

there are 3 types of halos

there are led halo rings, there are CCFL halo rings, and there are those cheap chinese ebay ones that are a plastic ring with one or 2 leds in the base the light the whole ring these ones are the dim ones.


the high end LED halos are very bright as are the CCFL Halos the difference is up close the CCFL halo has a Break in the Ring because the ends need to leed some where but the whole ring looks completely lit. where as the LED halos up close look like a bunch of bright LEDS really close to one another from a distance when they are on you probably would not be able to tell.

a good place to get these are from Advanced automotive concepts or Flashtech.

these all require you to crack open your headlights in order to install them.

Re: 2006 grand cherokee aftermarket headlight opinions

Some come with housings, some can be purchased separate from the housings. Check out this link for examples of housings:

Re: 2006 grand cherokee aftermarket headlight opinions

yea if you want the ones in the video those are a DIY install. i have never done it before either but from what i hear its not too hard

just need a drill bit for the HALO lead wire some silicone to seal the headlights back up and to open them stick them in the oven at 200 deg to melt the adhesive holding the lens to the housing and then a flat edge screw driver or knife to cut away the adhesive and pry open the lens. but be sure not to turn up the heat past 200 or leave it in too long or you will get little hairline cracks in the lenses. i have read alot of thread on how to install halos.
