Need someone to clarify my halogen question

Check this link http:

With that kit, will I only replace the bulbs in the future?? The headlight itself will not need to be taken out right?

Sorry, I'm not thinking clear today

That's right!! Although you might have to remove the housing to get the bulb out, you won't have to buy a new housing!!

no need to remove the housing just to change the bulb, there is nothing in the way. a lot of cars have the battery in the way or some other obstruction in the way. i installed the same set of headlights in my jeep, i went with the xenon bulbs. they work great. takes only about 15-20 minutes to install.

I have CIBIE's in the TJ's and Hellas in the XJ, the cibie light pattern in the 7" round vastly exceeds the square XJ lights. The price on the cibie's is considerably higher, about double for the housings but as I have both the c's and hellas I can see the difference at nite.

No need to remove the housing to replace the bulbs. Once you install em all you have to do is undo a clip in the back (by opening the hood) and then pull the bulb out. The rubber thing will be holding it but just pull it out and it will go.

Here are the pics of my install.
