Re: HID Kits Info/Install

It's nice the new small ballst look like they have a hole to mount them. Are they rubber coated or something? Mine get pretty hot under the hood sometimes.

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

Not trying to pick on Tony or bajahid...but you get what you pay for. The product is inferior. There are radio transmission problems becasue they have no edi filter, water getting into ballasts, multiple ballast failures, bulb failures, wiring and relay short wires, water getting into relay fuses unless you turn them a certain way. Now in bajahid's defense...some of this could happen to any kit.....but some of it is poor quality. I'm not picking on Tony...cause he is a great guys an offers a great price and warranty. i'm just looking out for my friends and fellow Jeepers. I wouold want someone to tell me the same thinga nd be honest than to let me learn a hard $100 lesson.

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

Who's the pooper party pooper? Scott is...HAHA

No worries, I appreciate the looking out and info! So are the xenondepot kits the best on the market??? Nothing but the best for Jill (my jeep) so I will save up if they are the ones to get!!!

BUT if we are talking half price, great warranty and Tony is a good guy...then I may save the $$$. I will wait for Irf and do a little more research and go from there...

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

I have another question...I am looking at this $270 phillips kit http://www.carhidkits.com/xenon-hid-...6000k-243.html I came accross this:

HID Problem Eliminator Plugs

$54.99

TWO - HID kit problem eliminator plugs. Get rid of the strobe light effect in vehicles with aftermarket hid kits. Eliminates annoying bulb out dashboard indicator light. If your vehicles new hid kit flashes like a strobe light when you start your vehicle, then this is for you! If your vehicle a bulb out indicator light on after installing your hid kit then this is for you. Our new problem iminator plug smooths out the voltage and provides constant power to the hid conversion kit elimating the flickering lights. These plugs will also provide the correct resistance to fool the vehicles computer into thinking there are good headlight bulbs in use. This will turn off the annoying dash board bulb out indicator light. This product is recommended for newer vehicles with this problem and not required for many vehicles. Don't give up on trying to buy an HID kit. Buy these plugs and have problem free hid installation.
If your Vehicle is on this list make sure and add the plugs to your order, if not you will have problems or issues while installing the HID's, no matter what HID kit you purchase on the market!

- Jeeps 99' and up / For Headlights Only



Do all jeeps require this "eliminator harness"...and have all of you purchased the relay harnesses as well? Seems like power directly from the battery is better, but is it required? Highly recommended? I want to do it right so if you think the relay harness is a good call just say so!!!

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

All of them no, but I know Jason (LipschitzWrath) had to use them on his because one of his lights would constantly go out.

Any about the relay harness, you need them for the highs/lows

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

all you need is the relay kit that comes with tony's kits and thats it. you have an 08 like me so most likely you wont need the relays for the fogs. i don't have them for the fogs either. installing my new ballasts today they just came in the mail 10 mins ago!

Re: HID Kits Info/Install

Long story. I think the lows are 6k and the fogs are 5k I think. I love the 3k fogs to swap out but I want a matching lows/fogs though...
