HID instilation.

Hey guys, just had a quick question hopefully someone can help me with. I got my hid kit today and in the insulation papers it said I jeep owners need to buy a seperate relay kit for instilation to help protect the TIPM.
I have a 96 zj.
Do they have the TIPM or is this company trying to get more money out of me?

if you are using the stock housings then at the current moment with the HIDs you are that ******* who is blinding everyone in the other lane

put the stock lighting back in until you get housings designed for HIDs

My housings now are so yellowed you can barely see through them. Thats why I did the HIDs first, just give me a little more light till the aftermarket housings come in.. which is this week some time. And yes the new ones are designed to take HIDs
