SOURCE: headlight aiming too high
Make sure the bulb was put in correctly and sitting flat as bulb replacement does not require head light adjustment.Check head light bulb before attempting to adjust

The headlamps are non adjustable. Because they are xenon, the government mandates that consumers not be able to adjust. It is a safety issue, and most dealers won't adjust them either. As far as changing the bulb, that shouldn't be to big a deal, just depends on how the bulbs are secured. Some have a round cap that unscrews, and some have a complicated pain in the rear metal clip. You just have to make sure if you get the bulb out not to touch it, because the oil in your skin will cause the bulb to pop. And I wouldn't suggest using any aftermarket blue lights or anything like that, I have seen several occasions where that type of bulb ran too hot and melted the wiring pigtail.

pop your hood open and on flat surface check too see where the beads are in the bubble levels,if they are off then there are 2 adjustments on each headlight,some require special tool they look like little gears on the adjusters. make sure car is on good flat surface

on each headlamp assembly, there will be either one or two plastic nuts that you can turn.
If you only have one nut on each, that will adjust the vertical aim of the headlights.
If you have two nuts on each, one will adjust the vertical and the other will adjust the horizontal.
Park your car on a level ground 30 feet from a wall and measure the height from the ground to the bulb and mark on a wall (do this for highs beams and low beams if the bulbs are separate, if highs and lows are the same bulb, only do it for the lows)
If the headlights read VOR, then aim the brightest part or cutoff part just below the mark on the wall. If it says VOL or nothing, aim them 2 inches below the mark on the wall.

Hi, i have no idea if this will help you or not, but, on the 1997 grand cherokee, if you look at the headlight itself, look to the outer edge, over the top ontop of the headlight there is a white allen key hole, not sure on the size, this, basically is the up and down adjuster for the headlight, sorry if it doesn't help but i've just had to adjust mine, and thats where it is, the one towards the radiator is the in and out, it pushes or pulls the headlight offcentre
