Has anyone looked into purchasing a set of the factory projector housing's. And either:

A. Add your own HID kit
B. Use Factory HID kit

Does anyone have part numbers to look into this. I found one housing on ebay, but it's junk and I wouldn't buy it. But it put this thought into my head, why don't we just source the housings. I wonder if these would just fit\bolt right into earlier models, 06+ commanders with minimal work.

Link to Ebay Auction ( As i stated earlier there not in good condition i.e projector loose)

This link can help you. Forum member dhh actually did this. This is something I may attempt in the future now that I understand the HID language. I hadn't thought about the OEM projector housings with aftermarket bulbs, but that is a good idea, and probably a good way to save some $, and make the installation a lot easier. As long as the base of the bulbs was the same, I do not see why it wouldn't work.

Ok Looks like it has been done already, after some more researching i found Mopar Part numbers. It looks like 'dhh' has done this mod already with good success.

Part Numbers Needed (Which include HID assembly as well):
Part numbers are - from moparpart.com

Part Number: 55079081ab
List Price
Core Price
Your Price
LAMP HEADLAMP PARK A
$668.00
$0.00
$484.00

Part Number: 55079080ab
List Price
Core Price
Your Price
LAMP HEADLAMP PARK A
$868.00
$0..00
$629.20

OE HID assembly would be best in my opinion, from my experience the 3rd party HID kits only last about a year. It may be hard to find the housing without the HID assembly.

My mistake about 05' Commanders ok 06+ -- whoops :) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep_Commander
