No offense and I like the 14 lights, but with the amount of white space (blank area) with our front bumpers, it makes the lights look too small for our front end pre 14. Perhaps the stock head lamps would suit better. Unless you decide to change the bumpers too.

I also noticed you don't have the washers on your bumper. Are you thinking of closing up the inbuilt washers on the new lamps ?

Re: 2011 factory HID to 2014 factory HID coversion

I'm prepared to swap the front clip. Cheaper than buying another car! I'm just looking for some help with some info. Is there a plug n play harness coming or some detailed wiring diagrams? I'll buy a harness or pay for a diagram if needed...just need some info! Teasing people ain't nice! :-)

I'm changing my front end. Going with the SRT hood too. Im excited for the transition. I'm working on a filler piece to fill the gap created with the '11 bumper but that's a side project and not high on my priority list.

I am interested in this same project to switch my 2013 wk2 front end to the 2014 srt and interested in learning which parts need to be purchased and the final cost after paint and installation.

Hi, first of all, great job!!!it looks amazing.

How long did you need for the full rewiring desinstall reinstall?

Is it feasible by a newbie like me?

The rewiring is a long process that might not work or it is a sure thing?

Thanks for finally showing that it s possible!!!

Will try it soon hopefully.

Re: 2011 factory HID to 2014 factory HID coversion

I'm working on a plug and play harness, but it won't be without some difficulty since I have been unable to source the connector on the leveling motors. I bought a pair of leveling motors for a Durango and cannibalized them for the connector. Even so it isn't going to be pretty because of how the connector is molded into the motor case. If someone can find a match for the leveling motor connector, a plug and play harness will be cake.
