Don't get stage 2 they will melt harnesses or housings without being upgraded.

How does the wattage work on these? I always thought the 55w was the power the balast, from the HID's, put out. Sorry, about all the questions just never seen, or noticed, that lights were labeled with a wattage output as well.

55w is also the wattage of the stock halogen bulbs. If you go with stage 2 halogens they run hotter and draw more so they can melt factory wiring and housings. (Not recommended)

Also about HID's. Typically 55w hid kits aren't recommended either. 35w kits stay within factory specs while igniting the bulbs.

Thanks for all the help man! I've never heard of the brand you listed, but for $17 bucks that's cheap as hell lol Wouldn't hurt to give it a try.

Exactly worth a shot.

I've been using them for over 10 years no issues in any other cars. The blue hue looks great. Halogens can never match HID's but it's a fair trade off considering they are plug and play and require no modifications and are a single point of failure. Unlike aftermarket HID kits which you have to diagnose between bulbs, ballasts, relays, and canbus error cancellers than can all fail driving you nuts figuring it out on top of cutting your dust caps to run the wires and possibly cause condensation in your housing if not sealed correctly. Mounting ballasts / relays / resistors takes away from the clean factory look and it's another obvious thing for the dealer to complain about if some warranty issues arise down the road.

Trust me, I've had my fair share of mishaps with HID's and their weirdness when it comes to problems/troubleshooting. Thanks for all the help! I was looking at some of your pics yesterday and I don't remember if you have one up or not, but do you have any pictures of visibility at night? With these headlights and your LED headlight fixtures? Sorry if that question doesn't make sense. I wanted to see what they look like shining on the road, etc.

Never heard of nokya and I got piaas... From the look of it I done goofed up. I'm gonna try em. Now....for the main thing we have been talking about. In Canada cars have drls automatically, however, its only the bulbs that go on. I thought they had wired it so only the "led" part around just goes on and not just the bulb...how do I make it so only the LEDs are on and not that damn bulb. Someone said check the fuse box? Splice a wire? I have no clue. But it be cool to have em work.


Cheers guys.

Well I went ahead and got these lights this pasted weekend and I am in the process of setting it up the same way Keitherkert did on this post here: New LED headlight for 2014 grand Cherokee Laredo

Only thing is I do not want to cut into the factory wiring and I am trying to see if I can get the male and female connectors that would connect to the light and factory wiring and make the necessary changes there. Seems Keithekert says the Middle pin on the blinker connector is what supplies power to the LED strip. I assume this connector on the picture until I get the light so I can test it myself.
