HID's

Well the driver's side head light went out so it got me thinking, should I put HID's in?

Anyone know a good conversion kit and what it takes to get these installed? I should probably do the fogs too, just to keep the lights the same?
Thoughts?

its not really a conversion kit you just twist in the HID bulb and it goes in and power the blaster. but if you have the stock headlights the light will be everywhere since HID are not meant for the stock housing. so i recommend just getting a replacement bulb for $11

as for using 10000K color your not going to gain a better view at night just get a different color look, i believe its like a blue purple
4300K is the best Kr to pick if you want he most light output and best viability

Getting pulled over because jeeps and purple head lights dont go well together.

The 6000k kit does look like perfect white. Plus they're on sale for $80



Would a new headlight housing be better with HID's?
