TJ HID projectors Build

Hi, last year, I've made customs projectors for my jeep yj : http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/h...m-jeep-844071/

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 very well done, thank you for the write up.

How do you adjust the cut off?

I use the same oem adjust screws, now they aren't perfect, I need a little more tuning but it's very easy to do

so how did you put the LED ring inside the H4 conversion lense? did you split the housing between the lense and the black housing or did it fit in the hole you cut?

Is there a reason you couldn't use the actual HIDS/ballast from the car you pulled the projector out of? Would projectors not allow for a bright setting to have the raised/extended cut off?

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 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.

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.)

You need

-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




PS fang_x Do you know www.quebec4x4.com/forum ?? It's like jeep forum but it's in french, people are very nice

nice writeup. Some Hid's done properly with a good projector. I think I might look into this soon, but I will need a way to seal the bulb better. Lots of rain and mud here.

Before the aluminium tape I've put like eurethane or epoxy (I don't know exactly the name)

But it's sure in my case I don't go in deep mud, I've tried in rain, snow, and it's okay.
