can't beat ebay! I seriously considered getting these to match my '92 Ranger but they're quite a bit more money for the Jeep..

finished the front rough country bb install despite the rain.

will finish up with the rear tomorrow.

the bump stop is not snapped in place in the pic. the only way i could get it to go in was to set the body/frame back down while the axle was jacked up. instructions say to use a pry bar but i didn't come close with that as tight a fit as it is.

Just search for "jeep grand cherokee (whatever year yours is) headlights" and you'll have tons of options of different styles from different sellers. These particular lights range from 120-150 shipped, just takes some searching. You can do this with pretty much any vehicle with some sort of aftermarket support, i got headlights for my ranger and my dads f150 this way.

Been there done that.
I spent far too much money trying some of those nice look headlights from eBay.
Both types had very bad light patterns, where hard to pop the holding mounts into place (broke of my mounts) and one had water leaking into it. Now I'm back to using the stock ones, they don't look as nice but pop right in, are bright and have a good light pattern.

Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

I'm looking at the same setup. I may go with the smoked markers and corners thou. You can find them if you search dotcomracing is the seller. The run about $90 and $30 shipping

Airborn - How was the install? What kind lights are you burning? What is the light pattern like? and is there any issue seeing the corners and markers?

Yet another reason to get TYC aftermarkets if you go that route. They don't leak water, they have a pretty good light pattern, especially considering they're aftermarket lights, they install easily, and they're relatively cheap. They should pay me for all the nice things I say about them.
