HID Retrofit Info

Hey guys, I'm new here. I just picked up a 2005 WK 5.7 Hemi with 35k on it. It's Inferno Red and in great shape. I love the look of HID headlights and would like to go about getting a set for my new beast.

I know I could go the 2008 headlight route, but finding a set and then buying a new bumper and grill for fitment seems difficult. Ebay has a drivers side for $300 and no passenger side.

So I was thinking I would just go with a HID retrofit. But I do NOT trust myself and my skills with pulling it off. So I was wondering if anyone knows of someone experienced enough and trusted enough to do it.

I found Customlightz.com who will do it but does anyone have some feedback about them and their quality? Thanks for any help or comments.

Re: HID Retrofit Info

welcome!
im guessing you want the oem projectors with the HID. check the thread scott mentioned. But as for just HIDs you can just order a HID kit and into the stock housing.

Re: HID Retrofit Info

Thanks for the responses. After looking at my post again I realize that it was worded wrong and confusing. I want to get HIDs but I want to do it right and get projectors. The 2008 headlights are hard to find and very pricy, in addition to having to get a new bumper and grill. So I'm thinking about going the retrofit route.

To those of you who swapped in the 2008 stuff, how much did it end up costing you roughly? And where did you source the parts?
