30 bucks for a projector kit? I bet the first time you get some water hitting your headlights from a creek, youll regret spending that little on the lenses

Now, I am one to believe laws are stupid and you should do what ya want etc. etc. BUT....!!

Those lenses are NOT made for HIDs!! Those lenses are going to blind the ever living poo out of anyone coming towards you, unless you aim them so low its worthless. Now, blinding others may not seem like a huge issue to you, untill a fully loaded semi gets blinded and is heading your way... Then you may want to rethink your choice!

With that said, it is your choice, and I have no personal experience with that seller or their products. All I know for sure, is that any credible HID kit that I have seen for a TJ includes the "boobie" style headlight lenses to keep from blinding oncoming traffic.

^^^^I completely agree with NOT blinding oncoming traffic'ers, but maybe some people just dont care and would rather have an affordable HID headlights...I wasnt telling anyone to "go buy these" just showing people whats available....plus i dont think the people with 4 or more headlights need HIDs anyway!!!! :evil2:

If I am doing HID's, I'm NOT going to cheap out on it. Lights are kinda essential at night and I don't want to lose that when driving at night.

My 2002 BMW E46 had a computer failure that killed the interior dash and lighting, but the headlights continued to work, thankfully, while I drove down 138 (Pearblossom Highway) near Palmdale, CA while coming back from Ontario. Not fun.

Some things on a vehicle I may cheap out on, but safety items and essentials are not in that list.
