I wish they supplied a little bit of information about that product. We get pictures and a few choices but at that price point I'd be way too suspicious to go through with a blind purchase. The cynic in my says $200 can't buy an HID retrofit that won't be troublesome for oncoming drivers.

Exactly why I don't want sketchy HIDs, I don't want to blind oncoming drivers and get them or both of us into an accident because they can't see and steer into me
I'm probably going to buy a decade 10ga harness and the IPF housing and decent 55/60 or 55/100 bulbs

If you're in town in the evening/at night sometime let me know, you can swing by and compare headlights and see what the 10ga w/ IPF and 55/100 setup looks like.

I think they just moved the master cylinder and brake booster to a better location, and then made the adjustments needed to make it work without failure.

I ordered them for my XJ I'll post up when they come in I know the wait is long. From other customers pictures the cutoff is great aswell as quality

Once they come in my upgraded harness , e codes and, Piaa bulbs are going into my Yj

You can't really just move the MC and booster. the linkages have to all line up with the brake pedal.

I don't see the problem when dealing with a custom setup. If the mc/booster were moved say 4-5" towards the driver side fender, that would allow for a snug fit (just a WAG) of the tubing and coil, and an "ease" of designing a custom linkage to allow safe brake operation.

Awesome! I'll look forward to your review. I just swapped to H4 last month but I wouldn't be opposed to upgrading again in a few months at that price. I'm sure I could find someone looking for a ready-to-go kit.

Wink wink ahhah

Then again I'm also looking forward to this review
Possibly we'll order a set and do a jeep headlight swap day?

I had you in mind but I know you're watching this thread! If the HID kit is legit at $200 then I'll only be able to unload my H4 upgrade on someone cynical like me.

A Jeep day sounds good. If you'll trek to North Yarmouth we can do it indoors, even.
