Thanks

Bought the lights, bought jeep_addicted's harness, and a couple hours later, had the lights working!



By far my favorite mod so far...

Re: First post- my 2011 WK2

I found this thread trying to do some research about the ProComp 7036, saw the headlights and WOW!!!

A few months ago I was beating myself up trying to find a way to get even 2011 HIDs to work but to pull the '14s off is incredible! Will definitely be looking into this mod! I see yours is a Laredo too (and blackberry pearl like mine).

Must look into those headlights, harness. Looks incredible with the lift, wheels, tires as well.

Haven't watched the video yet (at work) but what did you do about the gap below the headlights? some sort of filler plate? Looks insane!

Haven't done anything about the filler piece, looks worse than it really is in the video because the gopro was so low down.

Is your jeep halogen lights like mine was? Lights are an easy swap.

PM me if you need any help.

Yessir, mine are halogen. I was looking farther into it and couldn't really find any threads regarding jeep_addicted and the harness for the '14s to retrofit into ours.

I imagine the ballasts are included with the '14 headlamps and it's just a matter of wiring them up with the correct harness? plug and play? If so this is definitely something I plan to do. I'll PM you down the road. Need to source myself a set of headlamps. I did find your dedicated thread to them too.

Almost completely plug/play, just have to splice into one wire for the drl activation. Yes ballasts are part of the headlamps. They are a really easy swap with his harness.

Re: First post- my 2011 WK2

Quick question...

I see you had the JK 32 wheel package I assume this was with Sahara 18s?

Then when you went to 275/65r18s you changed rims. Did you consider keeping the Sahara rims? Was it just for looks (it does look better) or was there a fit issue?

I happen to have both 275/65r18s and 18 Sahara rims in my garage that will be going on next week.. Just concerned I could have an issue you might have ran into...

Thanks! Looks great! love the lights!

Functionally you'll need the harness. Physically there is a big space in between the bottom of the headlight and the bumper. Not visually appealing. Round peg in a square hole.

Thanks for the compliments

I'm not aware of anyone running the 275/65/18's on sahara wheels, sorry I really can't help, but like most with the procomp wheels I had to bend the pinch weld.

Thanks for your opinion, I will remove them immediately
