Site looks pretty shady, there are only 100,000 different HID kits out there. They aren't "wrangler specific", just H13s.

I've bought some of the $40 sets off ebay, they work okay for awhile, but the ballasts were junk. If I did it again, I'd go through a local shop/standing building that I can walk into and get a warranty on my parts. The warranty on most online just hid places is a joke.

Well, whatever you decide on make sure they are aimed properly. The time it takes will be worth it. You'll see better and won't blind on coming cars. If you want to do it yourself here is a good reference.

That site looks suspiciously like one of the sites that sells those "tuning" chips for $69.95.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

i toss ebay HID's in stuff all the time. It usually turns out fine. i'm running them in my Tundra now (different brand but ebay lights) and i really like them.

I'm probably going to convert to H4 housings and do HID's in them. you can PM ben foo, he did them.

the delta housings were like 106 bucks through my buddy, and add another 60-80 for bi-xenons (you need bi's because you only have one bulb for hi/low) and then whatever resistor you need to make them work (i believe i've seen those sold on ebay as well).

so for 200 bucks you end up with better lighting. I don't care what people say, it's better. As long as you keep the temp down on the HID's you'll like them. I'm running 6,000 in the truck and wish i had gone with 4300... hell, for the price of the ebay HID lights you can't put good PIAA bulbs in!

31 jeeps in... still have issues

I run the 55w bulbs in my windshield mounted IPF lights and its like having a small sun on my jeep. The kit came with 100w bulbs and I'm afraid to see what they're like
