There are many people selling projector headlight housings for WJs, but there are only three styles of projector headlights for WJs. All of these styles are available in chrome, black or smoked finishes.
The Gen I has three LEDs in upper corner near the grill.
The Gen II has a row of five oval lights along the bottom.
The Gen III looks most like stock with a bar along the bottom and 3 LEDs for the side turn signals.
There is no factory connection for the halos, but they can be spliced into the parking lights, turn signals, or fog lights.

HIDs should only be put in projector housings so that you don't blind on-coming cars. Also, only put them in the low beams. The warm up time makes them unsuitable for high beams. 6000K bulbs are generally recommended, though some people like 5000K bulbs. There are also many vedors for HID kits, but DDM Tuning is a popular source.

1999 -200? If your front drive shaft boot (the one from your transfer case to the front diffy) is torn but your CV joint is in otherwise good condition and you just want to replace the boot without spending $200 on a CV joint rebuild kit, NAPA has a boot that fits perfectly. Part #686-2332. It looks different than the original one but it works. Cost $19.

WJ Factory Components Average Life Expectancy

I thought it would be useful to try and see what the average life expectancy is for various factory components on the WJ.

Here are some threads to vote in (if you've replaced the factory part) and to review:

Save $$ on parts at Advance Auto huge discounts

If you have an Advance Auto Parts near you here's how to save $$. You shop online, add your items to your cart and make sure you select pickup in store at the location you want to pick them up at. Once you're done shopping, before you pay, go to www.retailmenot.com and get the coupon code that gives the best discount for the dollar amount you spend. You can enter the coupon code before checking out to make sure it works. Once you have the best code for the $$ amount then you pay online, print out the receipt and go pick it up at the store you selected. The website says ready in one hour, but I've gone there many times 5 minutes after paying and they are fine with it. You can pay with a credit card or paypal. A lot of new parts end being cheaper than junkyard parts because of the coupon codes. The coupons are not valid for oil and most other fluids, otherwise they work on mostly everything else. If you're smart, or cheap like I am, you have to figure out if it's better to do 2 separate orders. Example...you need 2 parts @ $100 each, they have a coupon for $50 off a $150 purchase, but you're better off buying the items in 2 separate transactions because you get $35 off an $85 purchase so you end up with $70 off instead of $50. Since I'm super cheap I use them all the time for parts and I know the codes to use for the best discounts. Below is a list of the best ones to use. Do not use the % off codes unless you're buying one high priced item over $250. Spend a minute to look for better codes, the % off codes don't save you that much.

Code Description

RAF7JA1102 $35 Off Orders of $85 or More (the biggest discount)
BIG30 $30 Off Orders of $75 or More
RETMENOT123 $10 off $30--$20 off $50--$30 off $100
BIG15X $15 Off Orders of $40 or More

If you are spending $150 or more and it's on a single item use this one

VISA $50 off $150

If you buy one single item over $250 this one gets the best discount

P20 20% off entire order

I just completed this Axle seal leak job, in my driveway. Darn sway bar bolts are difficult to wrench back in all the way, I may have to hit them with air. My big learning tip is to be careful when reinstalling the axle. One side of the square flange has a little indent on it which matches up to a protruding brake part. First timers make sure you match that indent up correctly or 1 of your 4 bolts will not line up with its hole in hub assembly and you will not be able to put the axle in the shaft all the way, much less bolt up the 4 bolts. And access to the top bolts on the Diff pan is a little easier if you lower the axle just low enough below the gas tank hinderance to reach them. This was not that difficult a job, even in the driveway, thanks to the excellent pictures provided. But access to a lift would have made it fairly painless. thanks for the instructions, saved me a bunch of money over dealer estimate ($400 at least).

Axle Shaft lengths for Varilock and Non-Varilock systems:

Non-Varilock:
long side- 35 1/8"
short side-19 3/8"

Varilock:
long side- 36 3/8"
short side-18 3/8"



Also a nice little tip for axle shaft seal replacements:
A CV joint Cage fits nicely around the shaft seals without crushing the rubber. If you ever replace your CV joints or have one go bad, keep the cage. I couldnt find my seal installer tool anywhere and ruined 2 seals trying to get it in until I decided to improvise. It works nicely since the cage also allows you to hold it in position better than a lot of tools.It's important to remember if you do use it for this, don't plan on ever putting it back in a CV joint.
