Unfortunately nothing fun for the Jeep. New starter, track bar, center console latch (woo hoo!), and whatever else I need to stop the gas smell in the back. (Jeep Beano?)

Housings. I'm still trying to figure out if they are aim-able and if not how I can retro fit the aiming device on my factory housings to them

If you are considering hid I would start researching how hid bulbs work vs halogen. Just putting them in h4 housings they will put out more light but it will scatter all over the place with out a proper projector to dissipate the light properly.


Check out this site there is tons of info on hid lighting and retrofitting on it. http://www.hidretrofits.com/

Oh no I got projector housings I know quite a bit about this stuff and I agree with everyone HID's don't go in standard halogen housings.

I have checked that out but it doesn't tell me how to make them fully aim-able for increase of vehicle height from what it is now.

You install the projector in a housing and use the factory adjusters to aim them up/down and side to sided iirc. I have a buddy who has done a bunch of retrofits from Mazda protoge's. Miatas. Nissan 240's and Tj's. send me some questions and I'll see if he has any answers

I put HID's in the factory non-projector housings in my VW. I really wish I had projectors but just can't justify the cost. Its ridiculous for kits for my VW CC. I got brighted a lot until I aimed them a bit lower. I would love to put HIDs in my Jeep but am actually curious about the LED headlights that were just mentioned. Is there a link or something I can check out about those? The other thought I had was to put projectors and HID in my fog lamps and just use those as my headlights. With the 37"s and 4" lift, they are definitely high enough to work if the light output was enough. Then again, that kills my plans for a new bumper... Its fun to have an idea and talk yourself out of it in the same paragraph...
