pimpski25: The Cherokee uses a 9006 bulb for the low beams and an H10 bulb for the fog lights meaning that you would need to get a 9006 HID kit and an H10 HID kit to upgrade both. For the low beams you have to use a relay harness to avoid any flickering issues.

Let me know if you have any questions about XenonDepot HID kits.

If youre referring to color output 4300 is stock, 5k is white and 6k has a slight hue if blue. From what I've read 5k and 6k are the more popular choices.

ok good deal... thanks for the info and the link! is the relay harness a separate purchase or does that come with the kit?
also whats the overall difference between the extreme digital and the volt digital kits? i see it's about an 80 dollar differnce in price...

Hey Alex,

By outputs do you mean colour temperature?

Steve
yes, sorry ! haha

I'm personally a fan of 4300k for the brightest, whitest, and most OEM functionality. The higher you go in terms of colour temperature the more colour you get however the less actual useable light output you emit.

Steve
I had figured around 5000 but wasnt positve. I do like the slight blue hue so I may opt for a 6000k Kit if you had that available .. or is the 6500 your next step up ?

Hey Guys,

pimpski25:

There are 3 main differences between the 2 kits:

1) The Xtreme HID kit will come with a relay harness that will power the ballasts directly from the battery whereas the Volt kit relies on the OEM headlight wiring to power the ballasts. The Xtreme harness will ensure that the ballasts always receive a constant 12V as power is being drawn directly from the battery. CherokeeSRT8 members get a harness with both XenonDepot HID kits though.

2) The Xtreme ballasts will be superior to the Volt ballasts as they use a German processing chip that allows the ballasts to monitor the bulb power requirements on a real time basis. This will extend both bulb and ballast life. Xtreme ballasts also have a lower starting draw so I would recommend going this route if you plan on installing the kits without a relay harness (fog lights).

3) The Xtreme kit comes with a 3 year warranty whereas the Volt kit comes with a 2 year warranty.


AROD: I am a fan of 4300k HID kits however if you want slightly more colour than go for the 5000k colour temperature.

hulsmaneod: Definitely go for 4300k if you want to match your OEM HID low beams.

Hope this helps,

Steve
