Post XenonDepot HID kit step by step installation guide

I'm going to attach a PDF version of the installation guide I made up. I'm still getting lots of requests for it, so I'm just going to make it available to everyone. This was installed on my 2015 TH.

*Couple of disclaimers*

-I'm in no way associated with XenonDepot. I don't work for the company.
-Follow these instructions at your own risk.
-I'm in no way responsible if you screw something up.

Having said that, if you run into any kind of issues, shoot me a PM and I'll be more than happy to help out any way I can.

You're awesome for providing the PDF. Great job

Thanks for this. I am in the process of installing the HID extreme kit today. However after finishing with the passenger side I have no light. I swapped with the other kit, still no light. My Jeep has a build date of 2-15. Could I have reversed polarity?

Ptrudel you mention that you removed the pin to allow for the wiring to pass through the 3/4 inch hole. How do you remove the pins? It appears to me they are in a moulded housing so pulling them is apt to ruin the clip. Am I wrong about this?

Sorry about the delayed response. With the new PWM's you have to reverse the polarity. I'm gonna have to update the PDF.

You can undo the pins of the plug with a precision flat head screwdriver. It can be un-clipped by going through the face of the connector through the smaller slot. If you need any extra help, shoot me a PM!

That was very helpful. The pins came out without damaging the connector. I reversed the polarity and the headlights work. I thank you for your help. It is too bad that Xenon Depot doesn't include better instructions in the kit. Lets hope the lights are better quality then their generic instruction booklet.

Again, sincere thanks.

No problem, happy you got it all sorted out!

The generic instructions are ok for most, as the polarity is usually ok...Just another little weird thing with the KL.

You'll love the lights.
