Headlamps

I have a 2012 Jeep SRT8. I really do not like the headlamps. Does anyone know of an aftermarket supplier or any mods that have been done? I did see a thread where someone put 2014 lights on a 2012. Looked like quite a project.

Thanks in advance!

Rob

Got these bad boys on AliExpress...they're actually for a Compass but fit in the opening perfectly.

Two of the plugs popped right together ( led turn signal and high beams ) while I had to get creative with the low beam HID'S and led daytime running strips

The lights themselves bolt right up just like the factory ones.

The only special wiring you have to do where the plugs don't match up is for the low beams and the Led daytime strip.

For those, I simply used a T-Tap and tapped the power wire and ground from the factory harness and ran the two wires for each to their respective plugs on the back of the lights and on the ends crimped small female connectors so the wire end slid onto the pins inside the plug on the light.

Super easy really

Re: Headlamps

I'm sure they are make for the WK2 and were just mislabeled liked everything on that website. I'm curious to see how they hold up and the quality of those projectors. They look great but I'm skeptical of the quality.

Re: Headlamps

Were you able to adapt the OEM HiD bulb which is a BiXenon bulb in the low beam?

The inner projector seems to act as a dummy projector...

Looks great, have you tried to park up to a 14 to compare?
