2017-2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
The 2017 and 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee lighting details are in: everything is pretty much the same as the 2016 models, except that the High Beam bulb has been changed to an H9. New for this year, we have our Vehicle-Specific 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee HID bulbs pak, which contains all of our D3S HID options for if you have the factory HID headlights. You could also use those same D3S options - or even the brand new Osram D3S Cool Blue Boost bulbs (rated for up to 7000K) - in a 2018 Grand Cherokee with the factory HID headlights. For the rest of you with the standard H11 halogen projector lenses, you can brighten up the road in front of you with the 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee Vehicle-Specific HID kit - this will include a pair of our PWM anti-flicker modules that you will need because of the Daytime Running Lights that share that same bulb. Finally, you can finish off your lighting upgrades by putting some Philips LEDs in your Fog Lights: available in H11 Philips Yellow LED and H11 Philips White LED. Either of those will require a pair of our H11-specific PWM anti-flicker modules, so you can avoid flickering and error code issues.
You can check out all the various bulb-type listings in our vehicle lighting guide:
2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
The 2014-2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee is here and is blowing the competition out of the water. Most noticeable are the newly designed headlights, featuring striking LED daytime running lights, and projector headlights. If you weren't fortunate enough to get an Overland or Summit with factory D3S HID headlights, the Low Beam halogen projectors utilize an H11 halogen bulb. Upgrading these lights to HID requires the use of an H11 HID Kit, however the 2014-2016 Grand Cherokee requires the use of a PWM anti-flicker module to ensure you don't get any flickering or other issues with the lights.
If you're fortunate enough to have stock HID headlights, then they're running D3S HID bulbs which don't do much in terms of color output. New for this year, Osram has released their all new D3S CBB HID bulbs (Cool Blue Boost), which produce an awesome color temperature of up to 7000K, while still providing around 3000 lumens of light output - that's comparable to a stock 4300K bulb, but with way more colour.

2011-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
In 2012 Jeep introduced the Jeep Grand Cherokee as the WK. The new headlights now came with optional H11 halogen bulbs for the Low Beams, or D1S Bi-Xenon headlights. An H11 halogen bulb is a single filament halogen bulb that connects to a PGJ19-2 base. It is rated at 55W and is clear in color. In order to upgrade this bulb with an HID kit an H11 Xtreme HID Kit (With CANBUS option, to get you those PWM anti-flicker modules) is your best bet. XenonDepot H11 HID kits are plug and play and come with a true H11 connector that plugs into your H11 headlight harness. The 2011-2013 Grand Cherokee with halogen headlights uses a 9005 halogen bulb for the High Beams. While we do not suggest upgrading high beams to HID, we do carry a large selection of performance 9005 halogen bulbs that will offer you a brighter, whiter light output, such as the 9005 Osram Night Breaker Unlimited (more focused on Output than Colour) or the 9005 Philips Crystal Vision Ultra (more focused on Colour than Output).
The D1S Bi-Xenon option uses a single D1S HID bulb for both the Low and High beam, achieved by a moving shield built into the headlight projector. When High Beam function is activated, the shield moves and causes the beam pattern to alter.
2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
In 2005 Jeep started using a 9006LL bulb for the Low Beam and a 9005LL bulb for the High Beams. While these bulbs are rated at the same wattage as 9006XSLL and 9005XSLL bulbs, however, the base type changed to have a 90 degree bend. 9006LL bulbs can be referred to as right angle Prefocus HB4 bulbs, and 9005LL bulbs can be referenced to as right angle prefocus HB3 bulbs. From our experience, upgrading the 2005-2010 Jeep Cherokee Low Beams with an HID kit does require the use of a Relay Harness. A Relay Harness allows you to power the ballasts directly from the battery and utilize your stock headlight wiring to switch the lights on/off. We suggest looking at the 9006 Xtreme HID Kit to upgrade the Low Beams on your Grand Cherokee, as a Relay Harness will be included in this kit.
In 2008 Jeep introduced Xenon headlights, using D1S HID Bulbs an an option for the Grand Cherokee. A D1S HID bulb has an integrated igniter on the bulb and can referred to as a PK32 D2 HID bulb. XenonDepot carries OEM replacement D1S HID bulbs, as well as aftermarket D1S bulbs that are rated a higher kelvin color temperatures, for owners looking to get more color out of their stock Grand Cherokee D1S HID headlights.
1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
In 1999, Jeep introduced the Grand Cherokee with a dual bulb headlight system. A 9006XSLL bulb was used for the Low Beams and a 9005XSLL bulb was used for the High Beams. A 9006XSLL bulb is a halogen bulb that connects to an axial prefocus HB4A base. It is a clear bulb that is rated at 55W and 4.30Amps. A 9005XSLL bulb is single filament bulb that connects to an HB3A / P20d base. This is a clear bulb that is rated at 65W. While we don’t recommend upgrading High Beams with an HID kit, we certainly suggest getting a 9006 Xtreme HID Kit to upgrade the Low Beams.
1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee Lighting
The 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee uses a halogen headlight system. A single 9004 halogen bulb is used for both Low Beam and High Beam functions. A 9004 halogen bulb is a dual filament bulb which can also be referred to as a P29t bulb. The Low Beam filament is rated at 45W and the High Beam filament is rated at 65W. Upgrading this bulb to HID requires the purchase of a 9004 HID kit. You can choose between a Low Beam-only HID kit or a Bi-Xenon 9004 HID Kit, but true to its name, a Low Beam-only HID kit will cause you to lose your High Beam functionality.
