Hids

Just ordered a hid kit off of eBay for my 05 wrangler x. They are H3 10000K bulbs and it's a conversion kit. I was wondering if there is a lens that will fit the H3 bulb for my jeep? Also how do I get the wires to connect seeing as I have a sealed beam?

You have to buy new housings for H4 bulbs for the headlights. H3 bulbs fit into auxillary lights, they are not the standard size for headlights.

H3's are not headlight bulbs, they are only single filiment. H4's have high and low beam.
