New Limited W/ Nav. HID Question
 
Hey guys traded in 2013 grand Cherokee lerado for this yesterday LOVE that it has projector headlights no more blinding ppl with my HID kit. Does anyone know the bulb sizes or a HID how to thread for the Cherokee yet? I cant find it anywhere.

Pull the wheel well liner out and look at the bulb. Or look in the owners manual...

Halogen HIR2
Xenon DS3

Per users manual. There's a lot of helpful info in that book.

New Limited W/ Nav. HID Question
 
Thx guys I actually did that but hid kits don't have HIL2 bulb sizes, so I'm trying to find out if anyone has put hids in there cherokee. I think we can do bulb size 9006 and just have to shave one of the tabs on the bulb and it will snap rite in.

I think you need to research lamps a bit more. The HIR2 is a halogen lamp. Not HID.

The other lamp is the xenon replacement lamp fr the HIDs available in the limited.

If you're looking for brighter halogen lamp then the hir2 size is what you're looking for. The sylvania size is 9012. 9006 will fit with a modification.

(There may be some things incorrect in this. I've only done a limited ammount of research and had a hard time finding silverstars in 9012 size at auto parts stores. I'm hesitant to modify the 9006. I've removed the lamp and was glad to find it's sealed in a water tight compartment (atleast it is on the trailhawk).

I'm interested in putting silverstars in just fr the appearance. The yellow headlamps are very off putting next to the white led DRLs.

When ordering aftermarket HID's you order by what your vehicle come with, that way the tabs are correct on the hid bulbs.

That would be your best bet. Modify a hid bulb with a 9006 base to fit in place of the hir2.

Chase361 12-07-2013 11:25 PM

Perfect perfect thx so much I'll get a 9006 set and an H11 for the fogs do we need a canbus fix like I needed for my grand cherokee

loveracing1988 12-07-2013 11:56 PM

I would just to be safe. You could always send it back if you dont use it.
