The bumper is extremely easy to take off, if that's what you're worried about? When I installed my highs I just popped off the upper grill/rad guard and placed the ballasts flat in each corner using the tape, but to clean up the wiring I decided to pull the bumper because it made routing the wires, hiding them and securing the with zip ties much easier (especially if you have big mitts like myself). I do recommend pulling your bumper for the experience and for a bit cleaner install regarding the wiring.

I also cleaned up the fog wiring much better when I did my highs and now the wiring is even less noticeable.

Re: New 8000k lows and fogs

This is mainly because I couldn't find the plastic fasteners for reinstalling the bumper; I only have aluminium fasterner and for the moment, no way to find plastic ones locally.

You can hit up a auto parts chain or body shop supplier for the push pin fasteners, for the plastic rivets I went to a chain store here in Canada called part source and they cost 60-70 cents a rivet. Just be careful and test them (push pin fasteners) first as I bought some that were too rigid and would shatter. I paid $12 cdn for a box of 25 at a body shop supply place and believe me it's way cheaper than the oem part and it's exactly the same.

When I get back home from work I can post a picture, brand name and part number for the push pin fasteners if you'd like? Won't be home till Friday though.

*edit* I just noticed on your profile you were in France. You can always order the parts you need online from justforjeeps.com. That is where I first bought the proper rivet gun and rivets for a rocker moulding I replaced and they might have a discount code here for jeepgarage members posted in the vendor section? Another option may be eBay for the oem rivets and push pin fasteners, you'll save money and have extra ones if you ever need them again.

Will do once I'm back home from work. I'll do one with lows, lows & fogs and one with highs.

But after getting used to the 8000k, I retract what I said about them being NFG. The highs light up the road really well and I'm really please with all 6 lights being 8000k. Next on the list are my HID reverse lights which will be 8000k as well.

I still haven't taken the pics for you but will try to tomorrow night after work. Here's one of all lights lit up, not what you asked for but I'll do my best to get them for you soon.

If you're asking me, they're just a winter tire setup from tirerack.com
