Now, I own a 2005 TJ and I decided to make BI-Xenon projectors for my jeep TJ. For the projectors, I choose Hella RS6 projectors Bi-xenon, from audi A6.
First, you need good projectors. You can take Hella, bosch, valeo projectors... The best way is to take projectors that comes from luxury cars, such as mercedes, audi, BMW, acura...
I took Hella RS6 projectors from audi A6 :
Then, you need H4 conversion.
Now, i've cut a hole at the back of the H4 conversion, to insert the projector.
I did the hole to insert the projector press fit and I sealed it with Aluminium tape.
But before to seal it, I have insert a led ring. I am from Quebec (canada) so I need daytime running lights. The leds are my DRL and it make angel eyes the night. I have put my projector shroud too. (the shroud cover everything and make it more beautiful). I took the led from ebay for twelve bucks.
For the lights I chose HID 55W 6000K. It make very white light with a little bit of blue
On this picture there is a dark spot on the left because I was in front of the jeep when I took the picture...I will try to make another one because this one is fuzzy...
Angel eyes :

Looks great! Good write-up... Where did you wire the DRL's to?
For the DRL, (my leds) I wired them on ignition with a switch, so I can decide to have DRL always off or ON automatic. I didn't want to have the hid always on for drl, that's why I've decided to use led as DRL.

I have took off the lens to put the ring in place

I can use the oem HID/Ballast from the car I have took the projectors off. The audi came with 35W 4300K hid. I took aftermarket hid 55W 6000K because they are more white and brighter. But you can take any hid and ballast, as long as it's D2S bulbs.

how much did it cost for all the parts? I might want to do this
It's sure it's expensive, it didn't cost me much because I already had my projectors and projectors bezel. You can find projectors on ebay for +/- 100$. (There is a place in laval that they sale on ebay but you can buy them at laval so you save the shipping.)
-H4 conversion +/- 50$
-Hid kit (in my case I had the oem Audi kit 35w, but I decided to buy 55w. I've paid 50$ on ebay, I run them since one month and didn't had any problem yet. I'm pretty sure that the audi oem hid are better but for the price, you have nothing to loose.
-Projectors and schroud
-Led rings (about fifteen bucks on ebay shipping inclued)
-Aluminium tape 5$, switch and wiring maybe 10-15 bucks...
In my case I had a friend who gave me projectors and schroud, and I took my H4 conversion that I already have since one year, so it cost me like 20$ + 50 $ the 55w bulbs and ballast because I decided to go with 55 instead of 35 watt, but it's sure if you start with nothing it's about 250$ of parts min. But you are far of the 950$ that they want for this Xsighting Lighting™ - Products, and you have the same results
