01 Cherokee headlights

I have an 01 Cherokee and want to replace the headlights with brighter lights.

I want to put Xenon lamps in and have not been able to find any on the Internet.

Do xenon exist for this vehicle? If not what do you recommend?

any help is appreciated.

i think your options look something like this:

1) stay with sealed beam (OE type) and get some silverstars, etc. (least money, good improvement)

2) do an autopals type conversion to a replaceable bulb (H4 i think) (slightly more money, with good bulbs, but better improvement)

3) convert the entire system over to HID for xenon bulbs (expensive, but best improvement, with vastly improved range, color temperature, and visibility)

so how much do you want to spend?

I think the H4 conversion is the best deal for the money. Just go on ebay and type Cherokee H4 in their search.

head lights

My son did replace the low beam bulb with a Sylvania bulb I think; low beam only. That seemed to improve it somewhat.

I have had Xenon on a different vehicle and I loved them.

For the moment however, I think I will just keep what I got.

Thanks for the help.

Also, foe getting all the power you can to whichever headlights you choose, check out FitchVA's writeup on better wiring harnesses:


It's definitely on my to do list.

You can't replace just the low-beam in a Cherokee....


He's got everything you need for a good lighting upgrade, short of a complete upgraded wiring harness (but he's got everything except the wire to make one).
