Just a few questions and ideas...

So I have a 2016 Jeep Compass (non-4x4) and I was thinking about blacking her out(since she's black). I'm already on track to get halo lights from LED Concepts but can't find anyone to install them, I was wondering if anyone here knew what kind of places do the halo lights where you have to insert them inside but you have to bake to do it? Also I'm thinking about under glow lights as well as two other lights to go in the grille. But with that I need some ideas for what kind and where to put the switch inside the car and the thing that makes sure the battery doesn't die because they are on (sorry I don't known a lot about cars when it comes to those kind of things)? So
If anyone here would like to add input and suggestions that would be greatly appreciated!

The highlights/bulbs are pretty simple to get to, to change them out. If you follow the directions on the headlights, they are pretty simple to install. Your halo lights would be tied into the parking lamp circuit.

LED underglow is also pretty simple. They don't draw much power so you can leave them on for a good while when not driving, say like at a car show or a burger joint and it won't drain the battery.

Usually with stuff like that I like to keep it on a switched power meaning the key has to be in the on or maybe tied into the parking lights so I don't forget about them and leave them on all the time..

Try to stay away from the cheap China version on Ebay. Those are cheap and look good, but trust me they don't last. I bought a set of headlights for my wife car and within a year they are falling apart. The Arizona heat melted the blue and the front plastic lens can be removed... haha
