I did a search, didn't see anything on this, specifically. I recently put an HID kit in my Liberty. The difference in light output has been ridiculous, but I have noticed that there is a ton of light immediately in front of the vehicle. It got me thinking, with the more abrupt cutoff of the HID's, do you typically need to re-aim them when changing from halogens to HIDs?

I could see them being aimed "down" more than they should be...

Not sure how to go about changing the position of the bulb. Only tip I received when setting up my bulbs was to make sure they were seated properly. But that for my xenon kit on my bike. I've been doing research on a xenon kit for my jeep.

Usually there is no need to re-aim headlight when put aftermarket HIDs...
Yes - more abrupt cutting of light beam is evident, and i have the same feeling - that headlight are aimed too low when i received my car with stock HID's.
But that's more psychological problem... And lifting the level raises possibility to blind other drivers (with is very dangerous especially with very high light levels on HIDs).

If you really require reaiming, than it's made as on any car - with two aiming bolts (don't touch horizontal aiming bolt if not really required to...
If you have automatic leveling, than you will need car to be started before aiming, because you'll need automatic leveling firstly to aim their level, and after that - you to reaim it mechanically via bolts.
