Don't do HID if you ever plan on off roading your jeep

I bought some wheel degreaser spray and then I rinsed with water and then let them dry.
For the flares, Door handles,grill and good I only cleaned them well.


I kinda messed up the hood cause I forgot ur supposed to peel the tape before it dries and so when I peeled the tape off.... It pulled bits off minimal but I'm picky and gonna fix it later.

I used 4 cans at $6 a can and it was enough to do all five wheels,flares, handles, grill, and hood.

I need another can to touch up and to do my spare tire stop thingy. ^.~

well for one you have to re-wire the entire head light set up, then if you ever get those capacitors wet you have to replace them and the bulb because they fry everything. ive changed my fair share on caddies and they are a PITA! plus i dont think its legal to put HID's on something that did not come with them stock, correct me if im wrong

some places are illegal ( and especially if your running 10,000k or higher ) but i live out in the bush of Alaska. Most HIDs now have water proof ballasts. Had them on various motorcycles as well. Never used them for off road, thought maybe that it would be annoying if your out with other vehicles on the trail. Haven't made a decision yet if i would go that route since i never liked bi-xenons. id like high beams to stay halogen and only want my lows HID.

i didnt even notice you were in alaska, so i could very well be legal up there. my dad used to be a civilian cop on Ft. Greeley, just swapped over to Fairbanks PD lives around the north pole area. just get some silverstars for your headlights. ive got them and they work great.

i work at ft. greely. work as an air traffic controller for department of defense. small world. silverstars were what i was leaning more towards too. thought about getting some light force lights as well since there are no lit roads here and moose like to cross the roads quite often

Ya see that would be completely understandable. I do alot of Mountain driving and most roads are not lit, but my silver stars light up good, it will be better when I put more lights on

I drove the jeep today after doing the team rush to go along with the nutter by-pass and wow what a difference it made on the highway and on the backroads. I gota pull the plugs back out because in the middle of doing the upgrade i reallized i for got to get a gauge that went to .045 and used what i thought was close but it ended up being .055 after i had it miked at the parts store, o well practice makes perfect.
