I'm running the E Codes as well. They are very nice. I'm trying to figure out what my next modification should be. Any suggestions?

Already done the harness, I assume?

Yes. I bought the LMC Harness and it is a plug and play Design. It worked out perfectly. Cost me $40 shipped. Haven't had any trouble out of it. My lights are very bright.

i have been running cheap 55w bi-xenon lights (100$ or so) for many years on the xj. takes 30 min to install. no harness needed. just great. needs replacement every 3 or 4 years though.

Grand total was about $85-90. Ridiculous upgrade from stock to say the least. If you guys are willing to put in a little effort to mod the housings this is far and away a better upgrade than any of the halogen upgrades you can buy. Halogen reflector housings will never stand a chance next to xenon projectors.

I like my Hella Setup. Plenty bright for my tastes. Unreal amount of light over stock. If u want to upgrade something on your XJ do this first.

Thanks for the comments guys.

For the harness I used this from ebay. The projectors are 2.5" bixenon's that I fitted with this kit. Lastly I just purchased the cheapest 7x6 housings I could get my hands on, which were these.

For my conversion I roughly followed this install. I used different projectors for mine since I was on a tight budget. The FXR's he used are higher quality, but are about double the price. For the $105 I spent I am extremely happy with the performance.

I will try to get some better pics for you guys now that I can legally drive it on the road rather than just in my neighborhood to test stuff. Just got the car registered this weekend.

I would like to see this. Take a video and post it up. I'll take another of mine next time I am out at night.
