Grand Cherokee head lights--- Questions
hey fellas, sorry if starting a new topic here is frowned upon...

ive been meaning to upgrade my WJ 04 overlands head lights forever as it seems.

but i have some questions..

do they make newer styled headlights with out the L.E.D attached inside?

i want to upgrade the lights but i really dislike the LED touch inside- even if i wasnt going to connect the LED (id still prefer it wasnt inside)

do they make projector sstyle with out the LED stuff inside?

im also in the process of toning down my jeep as in chrome to slate grey or black. so i ordered my pearl black grille the other day and would like my headlights to match accordingly.

is there any specific websites dedicated to buying only 99-04 WJ's?
^^aftermarket and factory stuff, interior and exterior.

also while im here is there a rim/wheels similar to the SRT8 rims but only a size 18?

cheers for any info and this site is awesome for jeep lovers!

OK. SO do you have any pictures of the Jeep? That would first help a lot. Then on eBay they do sell some with LED's but they are a bit too "show off look". BUt hey also have to 3rd Gen Projectors if you are looking into those.

Do you want the inside of the headlights to match the paint? If so you will have to "Bake" the headlights and pry them open and paint the to the color you would like. Some of the other members should chime in soon to help you out more.

1. new topics are good if you need answers. only thing someone might ask is if you searched for an answer first. so be sure to try that first. even then, you may need more details or something. so PLEASE ask!

2. i know nothing about WJ so i will leave that to the experts.........

carry on!

There are different kinds of projectors for the WJ, the last being the 3rd Gen which according to many, has the best light output.... about the led being there...ehhhh I dont think u can get away with it for as you can see from the pictures below, all has LEDs in it... I am not sure if the leds can be switched to regular bulbs thou.... maybe with some modification.

they do have them in black housing and chrome, which would match the grille you just bought.

Try to PM 00WJ, he's got rims that looks like the SRT. He's jeep is also in the November JOTM. Only thing is, I think those are discontinued... but you never know...

Welcome to the garage and happy modding!

Post some pics of the Jeep when u get the chance!

Re: Grand Cherokee head lights--- Questions
So you want the Projector Headlights correct? IMO you should get the 3rd Gen ones because like Mon_21 said that it has the best light output and he has then in his Sig so you can see how they look.

So you want to paint the inside the same color as your Paint?

Re: Grand Cherokee head lights--- Questions
ill look into all this info^^

for right now im thinking of the 2002-2004 black inside-laredo lights with the clear signals and amber corner parking light. i know ive seen one with black inside with both clear parking and signal lights.... but i havent seen one on the bay yet.

btw this site is very much taking care of my works-DOWNTIME- haha, love it

You can use your headlight lenses and then buy some Nissan Seal and the some Old Laredo lights and switch the lenses on them and use the Nissan Seal to seal the Limited lenses with the Laredo Housing together and POW your done!

Re: Grand Cherokee head lights--- Questions
You cook? Can you bake? LoL.... anyway, I baked my old headlight before I switched to Projectors..... took of the amber plastic piece.

and ended up with this..... cheaper alternative to buying the new ones. Same results, but even greater satisfaction knowing that u did it urself...wo0t!
