Projector lights with HID Bulbs???
 
I am new to the site so forgive me if there is already a thread about all this. I am looking to buy projectors for my 06 grand cherokee. I see alot of different sites and threads with people having HID bulbs on their projectors but the only out of the box one i see is the Spyder Headlamps that say they are not compatable with HID. I can not do a DIY due to me being in iraq at the moment but would like to have some waiting for when i get back. Any suggestions? Thanks

there are no projectors for the 06 unless you buy the shitty eurotrash kind. you'd have to build your own set and then install the HIDs. Or you'd have to retrofit your reflector housing, aim them lower and install HIDs in them. Otherwise you're SOL because only 08+ came with projectors

For when you get back :P.. you can maybe find some pre built but they are rare to come by. Maybe for a price someone here will make you one.

it could be done really cheap if you get the parts used from sites like ebay or car-part.com i had an accident so it was done through insurance, but it is not an expensive swap.
