HID bulbs tend to lose their luminance after a period of time. However, there are great replacements available for your Jeep Grand Cherokee. These provide higher output and can be customized to provide cooler color temperatures and more style.

The best HID bulbs are those that combine quality and affordability. The “HB” series by CNLight is a great example. It comes with higher output, ECE and SAE approval and the right size as well as arc position. It also combines German quartz and American salts to enhance durability.

The color temperatures available include:
• 3000K – A pure yellow output best for fog lights.
• 4300K – an unrefined and slightly warm white color mostly found in factory HIDs.
• 5000K – a pure white that has no blue tint or warmth.
• 6000K – the most popular ice white color for LEDs.
• 8000K – a white color with the highest ice blue color temperature.

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Fourth generation (WK2; 2011–present)

Jeep Grand Cherokee Third generation (WK; 2005–2010)

Jeep Grand Cherokee Second generation (WJ; 1999–2004)

The Jeep Grand Cherokee was first developed in 1983. It was not until 1993 that it was released following the completion of its development by Chrysler. It had a monocoque construction style that competed with the body-on-frame styling that was used by other SUVs. Currently, the mid-size luxury SUV is built in Detroit, Michigan.

When driving in unlit areas, it’s crucial to have headlights that function properly on your Jeep Grand Cherokee. Hazed, fogged or faded out headlights inhibit proper visibility. This can be caused by the debris that hits your headlights whenever you’re driving on a daily basis. If you wish to replace your existing headlights or would like to upgrade the look on your Grand Cherokee, there are modern-day headlights models available, such as LED DRLs, fog lights, Bi-Xenon HID headlights and many more. Some have built-in halo rings and LEDs.

LED headlights perform better than factory halogen headlights. As such, they are more popular within the market as they offer the best option for a styling upgrade. If well designed, they prevent flashing of other drivers and do not cause discomfort to oncoming traffic. The overall success of your lighting system depends on the quality of the product and installation. Modern technicians are equipped with the best technological tools that ensure you have impeccable and long-lasting utility.

Aftermarket Light Bulbs: Upgrade Options

The 2017-2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee came with the same lighting details as its predecessor. The only difference this time is that the High Beam comes with a new H9. For the 2017 model, the D3S HIDs came as standard. These can be replaced with the new Osram D3S Cool Blue Boosts bulbs rated up to 7000K. On the other hand, the standard H11 halogen projector lenses in other 2017 models can be ramped up with a pair of PWM anti-flicker modules. Other upgrade options include the H11 Philips White LED and H11 Philips Yellow LED. To prevent error code issues and flickering, these can be accompanied by H11-specific PWM anti-flicker modules.
