Well I installed my HID headlights the other day and thought some of you might want to see were I hide all the stuff(ballast, ignitors, and relay). So far the lights have made a tremendous improvement over the stock lights. This pair of HID lights has now been in 3 different Jeep Wranglers(getting my $ worth). So unfortunately I have no information on purchasing new ones. Well here are the photographs -


I hide the ballast under the cowl. Used 3M double sided tape to adhere them.


The ballast hooked up.


With the cowl down.


Shows the route of the wires from the ballast.


Overview - The relay can be seen to the right of the battery. Attached with one bolt to the side of the battery tray. You can trace the red positve lead from the battery back to the relay in the photograph.


Wiring at the headlight.


Inside the driverside bucket you can see were I 3M adhesived the ignitor to the Jeep frame.


Passangerside bucket


Stock headlights before the install.


The HID headlights after the install.

That is a BIG difference!

With stock lights it looks like you are in a parking lot but, with the HIDS, you can clearly see you are on a road!!

I wonder how many times I have left my Jeep parked in the middle of a street! :eyemouth:

(btw, thanks fpr the write-up. I look forward to doing this myself when I come across the funds!)

what did that kit cost?
Well I made this kit almost 10 years ago. At the time we were selling HID conversions for H1 Hummers. The cost back then was $999.95. Obviously I paid a lot less, I think it was around $600.00. Unfortunately I do not have current pricing.

With HIDS you can't use your hibeams right?


Not like you need to use hibeams with HID's, but not sure if you can use them with the HID kit.

Well my kit has high beams but they are halogen bulbs. So they really do nothing other than get you one step closer to being street legal. I have been meaning to hook my Baja Designs HID driving lights up to the high beam switch but have not gotten around to it.

I got E-codes and stuck some H4 Bi-Xenon HIDs, so I do have a high beam. High beams are very BRIGHT

Hey guys,

I ordered the DDM Tuning 55w H13 digital kit for my 2010 Rubicon and the wiring harness plugs do not fit into the OEM power supply plugs.
What did you do to correct this?
Is there something unique that you did outside of the directions on their website?
Help!

I just ordered the same ones (35w 6k) from ddm and my buddy had got them before me. On his advice I went to www.eautoworks.com and ordered the male adapter for the h13 9008 for $10 before shipping. They have not arrived yet (should this weekend) and I will do the install this weekend and let ya know.
