zj projector headlight owners

how do you like them? my headlights went out again and one of my housings is cracked so i need new ones anyways. i miss the brightness of my HIDs but not the glare they gave off and i couldnt see **** in snow or heavy rain because all the light scattered. i want to get the dual one pieve headlights/turnsignals with hi and lows and put 6000k HIDs in them.

were they hard to wire in? by that i mean took alot of effort?

any issues with turnsignals after wards?

thanks in advance!

I was one of the first to purchase them on here. I just installed the ebay black 6 piece housing set with a 9007 bulb conversion.

take what you will from that.

Turn signals would have been someone plugging the wrong fixture into the led.

I had led's 'burn' out, water in the housing, and the mounts broke.

The one piece led and reflector housings are built right. the projector housings aren't mounted well.

A set of clear lights in chrome or black would be much better. The black housings actually have a good cut off imo.

I'm glad somebody finally posted some pics of the chrome housing, I used to like the black better but I have been leaning away from it lately.

Yeah I wouldn't recommend these. I'm probably going to be spending 3-4x what I bought them for to fix all of the issues.

Speaking of that, does anyone know what size projectors these use? Since the ones that come with it just suck, I'm gonna be upgrading it.

toss them
buy the black housings i did
go to theretrofitsource.com and buy the mini d2s retrofit projectors. install them in the housing per my build thread. enjoy good lighting and easy adjustment.

I'd much rather have the one piece housing though. Besides wouldn't modifying those to accept a projector take as much or more work to make look right?
