2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight

I currently have a 2014 Limited with the standard projected headlights. I know a few people selling the OEM HID headlight kit from the LUx II package.

Does anyone know if this is a plug and play swap out?

If not anyway to make this work?

Really want to upgrade the headlight kit!

Re: 2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight

Why would people sell the factory HID when it is so hard to retrofit?

Re: 2014 Jeep OEM Projected headlight to OEM HID headlight

Yeah I have a 2014 GC Laredo and would also like to know if my projector headlights can be replaced for the hid /led accent headlights. I figure it should be an easy install because the front look similar in all the models.

Unfortunately the 2014s have a totally different wiring harness.

That's correct. Anyone have an idea if someone is making a plug and play harness to make the conversion?

Would really like to upgrade the headlights.

Check my previous posts in this thread. Apparently there is a guy offering a conversion harness. I emailed him about one for the 2011-2013s and he said that he could probably come up with a harness that would work, which would be awesome if the 2014 headlights actually fit the 2011-2013 nose.
