    So I would think that a car like a Jeep would have a forum dedicated to lighting but I don't see one. I'm trying to significantly improve my DRIVING lighting (not off-road... about the only off-road stuff I do is the occasional curb or two). I am hoping to get HID's. 2004 Liberty Limited 4-wheel drive. Help?

    Thanks for the reply but I am looking for a kit to buy. I don't need instructions, just an aftermarket solution that's pretty much plug and play. That link is missing all the pictures buy the way.

    Somewhere between being sane and insane!
    All the "plug and play" kits are illegal and just scatter light and blind oncoming drivers.

    Best to do it right which is neither cheap or easy.

    I can agree with that. I did the same thing on my Corvette so doing it right is no problem. Price is not an issue either. I just need to know what "right" is. Hell, a light bar or grill lights would be fine for me as long as I get more light. I need lots of light. I'm OLD.

    I used Hella light cannons on my Vette. Cost me $1200 and was well worth the price.

    I use stock headlights with fogs for most of my driving , with Hella FF700s when out on back roads. Run Phillips Extreme so cheap and don't have to spend a fortune
    Can't stand that illegal crap a lot run and throw light everywhere. Blinds everyone although they don't think so.
    I'm over 60 and don't need more light, just less idiots on the road with cheap Chinese lighting :happy175::happy175:

    Those Hella lights are cheap! Where did you mount them?

    Ddmtuning.com has good hid kits, and projectors to mod your own. Auxbeam led bars on Amazon are good too. I have their 42" led bar over my windshield.

    don't think you can legally run your light bar either on regular roads
