I may try and fab my own, by buying something from my local auto parts store. When I was in there last week I noticed they had Duplicolor spray can that said Granite Metallic. Might gave to give it a try.

I really want to change my headlights on my 2015 Altitude to the Eagle Eye. Would you mind giving me a little more info on it?

I have this link for them: 2014 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee LED Strip Black Housing Projector Headlights 1pair | eBay

Do you know if this is considered an easy install for a light/auto customization shop? I assume this would void any dealership warranties if I ran into some electrical issues. Can it be swapped back to factory lights without them knowing.

Do you like the light output at night compared to the stock lights?

Is this swap something you would recommend to other Altitude owners who love the SRT light setup?

Honestly, it is pretty simple for anyone to do, I don't think it is necessary to pay a shop to do it. The only reason I did is because they were already taking off the front bumper to wrap the grill. Save your money and do it yourself. It will take you 10 minutes to remove the front bumper and another ten minutes to remove the old headlights and put in the new ones. They are literally plug and play.

The stock halogen headlights were really the only thing I didn't like about the truck, so in my opinion, these make a huge difference and look so much better. I think the light output is slightly better, but don't fool yourself into thinking these are hid's because you will be disappointed. If you are unhappy with the stock headlights, these are a worthy upgrade, but again, they are not srt headlights.

I cannot comment on the warranty part because I really don't know, but I wouldn't be concerned with any issues. There are a lot of members on here who switched to these headlights and haven't had problems.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

Hello guys just bought a 2016 High Altitude last night. Two things i want to do right off the bat is lower it and put wheel spacers and second thing is black lug nuts on the wheels. First question is should i just level the rear 1.5'' to match front or lower the whole thing. where do yall shop for parts. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the input! It looks like you've had your lights in for a few months now...have you had any issues after the install (lights? electrical?) I just don't want to risk putting in aftermarket stuff after paying for the extended warranty.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

I've had my eagle eyes in for just about a year now no issues. I also have the extended warranty and will swap the lights back to stock if anything ever does arise which I doubt. They are completely plug and play no modifications preventing you from going back to the original headlamps

Did they have to remove the bumper for the install?

Can the DRLs be turned on and off when you want?

The bumper has to be removed to install the new lights, you cannot do it otherwise.

I installed them myself (yes the bumper has to come off) and have never used DRL's not sure now as I can't try it since I'm running HID's in the eagle eyes.

Re: Bmock's 2015 Altitude

How do you like the yokohamas? Have they been holding up well? They don't look to "buldged" on a 9" wheel. I like them.

I'm looking for that same wheel/tire combo you have and am wondering if you have had any rubbing issues after you've lowered it.

I haven't had any issues at all. No rubbing either. My only complaint, and it is a minor one, is that they are a little noisy. Nothing obnoxious or overwhelming, but i can defiantly hear them while driving.

Did you install your springs and shocks yet?
