Best halo projectors for 08 Limited
 
I'm looking to upgrade to some halo projectors for my 08 Limited. I see there are alot of options out there. I actually already bought a set but had to return since they didn't fit my jeep (straight edge on bottom instead of the 2 humps like on top). LED or CCFL? I'm leaning towards the black dual ccfl angel eye halos, but just wanted some other opinions and ideas from other same year/model jeeps. (i already have 5000K lows and 3000K fogs installed)

plus...i'm still desperately trying to get a contact for whoever does the wiring mod to make 05-06 tails pair up with 07+ jeeps. I have my led tails just sitting in my garage.

Yeah I sent him an email but never got a response. And if you notice, I was the last person to reply to that thread that you sent me a link to but got nothing there either. All his threads are old and I looks like no new traffic going towards those threads. There has to be someone else out there that does these mods if he isn't anymore. I took my tails to a prof. installer and he wasn't able to decipher the connection. I'll even take a diagram describing the splicing but the only one I saw wasn't accurate.

Thanks anyway man.

LED.

CCFL doesn't last as long as LED. Especially when you're talking aftermarket.

Any recommendations on brand? The problem is finding halos for my year. I can only find ccfl if I want a whole kit. The vendor Flashtech on this forum has them for srt's.

so you are looking for projectors with Halos? these are the aftermarket ones=http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/05-06-07-08-JEEP-GRAND-CHEROKEE-BLK-PROJECTOR-HEADLIGHT-/360115530155?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories &hash=item53d88ee9ab and http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/08-09...item1e639161e9
IMO, the aftermarket lights are crap and iirc the light output isnt too great either.

I know of 2 brands that sell halos, Flashtech and AAC. Ill recommend LEDs from Flashtech. The AACs ive read some owners have problems with it usually with the halos starting a fire in their lights. May be installation fault but i didnt want to risk it.

This is a pic of my 6k halos from Flashtech

Cool. Thanks all. I decided to go with black ccfl halo projectors. Even though i kinda agree with DAVY27 that OEM with led halo installed looks a little better.....but i don't think I can handle that mod without breaking something. lol ...Hell i still have these 05-06 led taillights that I cant install cuz I have an 08.

Dave...do you know if
Lipschitz Custom Wiring is still doing the wiring mods for the taillights? I posted on his threads and sent him an email but no response. Do you know of anyone else that does that service?
