I believe that harness isn't used...it should work without it plugged in. I'm looking into getting that exact same setup.

Post up some pics and let me know how you like them. I'm curious about the "glare" that's talked about by all of the headlight nazis on here.

55w, 8000k. I hope the housings pictured are designed to properly focus the HID beam, if not, you WILL be blinding oncoming traffic. It's not the headlight Nazis trying to kill your fun, it's a fact.
35w HID is brighter than the 55w halogens, so they are going to be damn bright. 8000k will also have a purple hue to it, which is going to suck in the rain, I know from experience, and possibly get you hassled by "the man" which I know from experience as well. The HID kits I used before were all from the same company and were totally plug and play, so I can't really help you with the wiring. I also only used them on cars with projector housings, which do a better job at trying to focus the HID beam.
I'm certainly not trying to tell you not to use them, but I don't think you'll be happy with them in the long run, mostly due to the color temperature in bad weather.
I am curious though, what did you pay for the kit? Most cheaper kits use really crappy ballasts, which end up being nothing but a pain when you have to keep flipping the headlight switch on and off over and over again trying to get one of them to fire.

55w kits tend to wash out some of the color of the HID bulb due to the light output( for example, a 55w 8000k will look similar in color to a 35w 6000k kit).
-from the website

HID Kits, BMW Aftermarket Bumpers & Lighting, DEPO - DDM Tuning

It seems there's a lifetime warranty with these guys, but the customer service sucks. From what I've read, re-aiming your headlights helps with not blinding other drivers. I've used the search button with this topic on this board and on many others that discuss and beat the crap out of this topic. I'd still like to see pics from the original poster's jeep from different angles @ night and then I'll decide if I'm going with this setup. However, I'll be doing the 35w route and around the 5000k color.

At $35, I wouldn't expect much. No offense.
All the kits I used were 5000k.

it's actually $75-ish for the kits for the jeep...no offense taken. If it turns out no good and really does blind people, I'm out $75. Or keep going with it and get those other headlight housings.
