here is that thread: 2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight


So you have 2 options:

1. Convert to 2014 Halogen Projector + Hid kit (probably less expansive, and more plug and play depending on 2013 Wiring Harness)

2. Convert to 2014 Stock HID (will be much more expansive and will requires custom wiring harness)
Or... he could just purchase a 2013 year projector headlight assembly and use that. If he installs a 2014 light there is a good chance he would have to convert the whole front end with it.

You are correct. (thou i thought i read somewhere 2014 lights will go into 2013 with out front end modding, but i could be wrong, so dont quote me on that one and do the research)

Option 3 is to convert from 2013 Reflector Halogen to 2013 Stock HIDs:

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

WATacoRider : Glad to hear that you are happy with your purchase. Definitely use tie straps in addition to the double sided tape provided - even if you use industrial velcro....

KJPECHO - The original poster had OEM halogen headlights (like yours), and installed an H11 HID conversion kit to upgrade the lights to HID.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

Just ordered a set of the LED fogs in black from Xenon Depot. Seeing this thread made my spend money I didn't have. Lol. Can't wait to get them and install them.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

I went the really cheap route. Got a pair of HID kit OPT7 35W 6000k H11 that came with canbus kit for the low beam, Generic LED H11 6000k for fog, & Generic LED 9005 6000k for the high beam; all off Amazon for a total of $56. Took a couple hrs to put them on w/o taking the bumper off. Yeah, we Asians' small hands come in handy once in a while. The HID is working out nicely so far (6 miles of driving at night), no flicker, stayed on. But those generic LEDs are not putting out real light though. The color matches but that's about it, not usable light at all. Hey but they were cheap, H11: $6.39/pair and 9005: $8/pair. Will leave them on until I figure out what to do. May go with Silverstar or put the yellow stock bulbs back on.

Unfortunately individual LED bulbs do not provide enough light output. As you said they color match perfectly but the brightness just isn't there and even with our 30W CREE LED Fog light bulbs they do not provided enough output at 725 lumens.

For anyone looking to color match and get more light output, an HID kit would be your best option for your fog lights. As for the high beams, we would recommend getting a performance halogen bulb from Philips or Osram for best results.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee HID Kit Installation

I had some hid lights installed on my 2014 JGC in the fog lights on Thursday and one as gone out already.
I have them in the head lights with the canceler box and no rely and they are working fine for almost a year now

The fog lights - looks like the shop installed race sport brand... they did not use a rely but did use the cancelers like the head lights.
they were working fine the first day but then the driver side went out. I had some extra bulbs and balest along with connection wires around the house from my 11 JGC, so i tried to see if it that will work but still no luck. I then put the stock light back in and connected it to find that that does not work now as well

- however i don't know if the old hid stuff i had in the house was working to begin with. I did not want to take the working head light out to check..

if i am right using a rely only uses one stock connection - but i still want the stock connection to work...
but if that is right then i can always use the other sides connection with the relay

Does anyone know whats going on and what i can do to fix this

please help and if you have any recommendations i would like to here

Adam

Check the owners manual to see if the fog lights are on individual fuses, if they are check the fuse for thr one that is out.

Adam,

If the halogen bulbs did not work either than it may be a fuse issue. I would look at your fuse box and see if any of them are labelled for the fog lights.
