Well first I had to install H4 head lamps to replace the stock ones but before I did that I put HID lights inside of those and then install them and then wired it all up and mounted the Ballests and she was all set!! :) they look really good too! :)

Ohh and I painted the trim black!

I used krylon fusion on mine. Turned out great and holds up to the power washer. They look and almost feel like aluminum, but they are just plastic with a chrome finish. Scuff 'em up with a green pad and shoot 'em with krylon since it's designed to bond with plastic. I did my flares with it this weekend. Now I'm all blacked out:punk:

The lamps are H4 and they company called me cuz i told them i have completely stock headlights and they called me and said you need aftermarket ones and asked if I wanted to add them on to the order and they sent me the H4 ones

It has a few streaks in the bottom left and bottom right but other than that pretty clear I'll try and see if a pick might show it

Keep us updated on these. I'd like to know if people flash their high beams at you at night. I've been thinking about something like this, I have a hard time seeing at night and maybe this would help, but I don't want to get flashed by on coming traffic either, or tangle with the local police. especially with the police.

^ 2. lets see a bean pattern pic when you get the chance! looks great.

If you go to the website that I put on here they send you everything you need!

I got 6000k HID's and then I got H4 headlamps and the company sent them to me so idk what exact kind of lenses they are but
It is two pieces the actual hid lights go into the H4 lenses

The ones the jeep come with is a full sealed beam and you can't put anything inside of them so you can't put HID lights in them :)

Red00Tj 01-05-2011 12:11 AM

so the whole kit only cost 80$ including lenses and bulbs and ballast?

Simplegreenvr6 01-05-2011 12:25 AM

^ the HID kit itself (bulbs and ballasts) will cost you $80.00. The entirely new light fixture will cost you an additional x amount of dollars. Like he said, call em up and tell em what you need and they'll get you straight. Good luck.

The new light fixture cost about 50 some bucks! And yeah just give em a call and they will set you up! It's a great company! :)
