Need 2004 Jeep GC Help with HID for fogs
 
Hello everyone. I just bought 6000K HIDs for the lows and fogs for my truck. The lows were pretty easy to connect and work. But I did one side of the fogs and it doesn't work. I know that there is a possibility that the problem is that I need relays (which I have) but does anyone know how to route them and connect them on an 04 Jeep GC? Any photos of connections and mounting techniques? Thanks

Also if I can't figure this out, I was thinking if anybody is in the NY area and would like to help me connect these, let me know.

Thanks for the help, apparently I had to use relays. I feel like an idiot even asking, but luckily I got it all figured out, very easy. The lows seems to have a bluish tinge but thats mainly the angle and the lighting. Its actually a pretty decent white. Heres a quick photo:

Looks just like mine. I'm switching my fogs to 3000k for the winter time and switch my lows to 6k. I'm tired of 8k

Thank you for confirming that I did everything right. Please post photos when you do that combo. Hows was the light output for 8K? What is really blue?

I mean it's ok. They looked cool at first but now they are kinda ricey most I can show you is this recent pic. Here's 8k lows and 6k fogs. A hint of a difference but they are different.

Thanks Paul, hopefully at the next M&G we can get some good night shots.

Question for the ground wire should I cover the area? I think some water usually runs by there when it rains.

Night shots is what I was aiming for. I'm prolly the only one with the stock bulbs but oh wells.
