01Grand finally gets HIDs and projectors!
 
Ok, the time has come. Today I am finally installing Gen3 projectors and a low beam HID kit. This is one of the first mods I wanted to do after joining this site, and finally have some repairs out of the way so on to mod time!

Gen3 CCFL halo projectors from ebay and a XenonDepot Volt 6000K HID kit for lows, I will be using the stock bulbs for now for turn signals and already had Silverstars in the high beams.

Looks like shes got 2 black eyes!

Now, what causes this? Heat I would assume? Maybe its the anti-amber aura of Tony, the force is strong with that one! Either way I am NOT putting these into my new housings, I will have to run to the store later for some new bulbs, LEDs to come in the somewhat near future though......

Congrats and Enjoy! Mine ambers were the same way when I put my Gen III's in, I think it IS the Anti-Amber Aura of Tony that causes it lol.

Lol, I've contemplated that. At least there's a few states in between us in case it comes to :slapfight::lol:

Ok, finally some pics! I finally got it all together, after learning the hard way which wires were positive and negative. I hooked the 3 side LED's to the side marker, so they are on with the parking lights and blink with the turn signals. The halos are hooked just to the parking lights, I doubt they would last long blinking. The HID kit was easy to install, lots of wires to tuck away though. I tucked the relay harness wire for the drivers side under the hood weatherstrip, and found spots to hide both ballasts. Very easy kit to install and figure out. Here we go!

Up close, right after install:

Heres a night shot. You were right Tony, I should have done this upgrade a long time ago!

I also got my reverse bulbs working too. VLED 7watt CREE reverse bulbs, and they are wicked bright. No street lights on my street, and lots of people that like to park on the street, it makes for a difficult time backing out at night. Not a problem any more!

Nice!! Those look great! If I had known about these a few years ago, I would have bought these (but the black housings) over my replacement ones..

Oh yeah, these are great. I'm glad I went with the chrome housings with my body color, but the black ones are nice too. I was considering buying stock replacements about the time I found JG, ever since I have put up with the old ones until I could do this mod.

Looks real good! And I put my jeepgarage.org decals in the same place on each side, they look good in those spots.
