any other projetor headlamps (hid conversion) aside from angel eye ones?
 
im looking to to the hid conversion to my fog lamps and headlamps. i was doing research and found that non-hid oem headlamps are not meant for hid kits. since i wanna do things the right way, but dont have the $$ to do the conversion to an '09 for the stock hid's, i saw my only other option were projector headlamps....

so im looking at dashzracing.com and holy shat are the projector halo looking headlamps ugly. :eek:

really? thats my only choice? honda looking headlamps?

i sent headlights to a vendor last friday to prototype a projector conversion. going to do all 4. vendor is wanting to make this something you can do yourself. i expect to be hearing seeing stuff next weeks so stay tuned.

really bro...if you shop around, are diligent and search car-part.com daily...you can get an oem set of 08-10 HID's for less than $500. I have bought, altered and sold probably 10 sets. I have a how to on here to make them plug and play on ANY WK.

i read on jeep forum that you to make it fit on an 07 you need a 08-10 grille, bumper and headlamps. (thats just what i read so dont jump on me for it)

if youre creative its not really necessary. I was the very first person to do the conversion and at first I stayed with my 06-07 bumper and made some fillers for the space at the bottom of the lamp.....just used some plastic from another bumper and filler. I then had it painted to match. It wasnt perfect...but Im sure if you had better skills than me....you could do it better. Let me find some pics for ya....
