What's needed to install HID's?
 
My HID's will be here in a couple hours. I'm heading to Lowe's in 15 minutes to get some supplies, what am I missing?

Supplies
  • Zip-ties
  • Sandpaper
  • Electrical tape (probably unnecessary)
  • Maybe wire cover (probably unnecessary)
I assume the relay comes with proper terminations, etc.

Sure can... I'll also take step-by-step pics of the bumper removal for the WK guys.

It's all plug & play. May need zip ties and a drill and screw for the grounds and mount the relays. That's all I used. No splicing or anything. Took me like 1.5 hours for fogs and lows. Fogs took like 15 min.

Thanks Nate!

Just go back from Lowe's. Probably bought more than I'll need, lol, but I usually go overboard when it comes to wiring and I can always return what I don't use.

Install/How-To to come later this afternoon. I may as well remove the front bumper while I wait for USPS.
