If you pull the retaining ring from your headlight housing (3 torx bolts), you can drop these headlights in with zero modification to the housing, the bulb or your wiring harness. The best part is you are getting an actual increase in lumens compared to the standard 9006 bulbs that WJ's call for, even overdriven 'high output' 9006 bulbs don't stand a chance against HIR's:

You can make 9011's work also with slight modification to the bulb base ONLY.

They are 2350 lumens

They're also a 65W bulb, which would increase the risk of heat damage to the lens and/or reflector when used in a traditional low beam position, you would also want to upgrade the wiring as well.

Plenty of people running them in WK's with no problems, although a headlight harness with relay would improve performance.

This posts describes the install in detail:

The difference in bulb bases between highbeam and low beam is show here.



Many people have ground off or cut the posts in the highbeam bulb to allow it to connect, some have simply forced the connector on.

More lumens = more brighter

9011 is a high beam bulb and ~2350+ lumens

9012 is low beam and ~1850 lumens
