Looks nice.

Tell me how long your low beam headlight connectors last with the 100W bulbs. Mine never lasted past 3 or so months. I replaced connectors twice and said screw it after that and went back to stock wattage low beams.

I had 100 Watt halogens in every light since about three months after purchase in 04 with the stock headlight housings and have never had a problem.

I got new projectors headlights in the summer and put 100 watt halogens in them to start (they are h1 bulbs) which I have never had a problem with

Just got my 55 watt HID's for the low beams in yesterday and will be installing in the next few days.

PS, under your Jeep information drop down you have a 42re not a 45. The 45rfe is for the 4.7 WJs. Nice Jeep, very clean. I love the 04s!
