Re: 2014 LED Brake Light Swap to 2011/2012/2013

If I had a 11-13 WK2, I really wouldn't bother to try and retrofit the 2014 taillights since Jeep took the cheap route and only made the running lights LED. I mean really, how much more would it have cost them to also have the turn signal and brake lights be LED? They both use the same circuit.

They always leave little things like this to differentiate the next model year......It's all about the $$$

Really, the turn signal and brake lights are incandescent bulbs on the 2014? That is lame. Gonna have to spec out my own LED bulbs I guess.

Either that or wait for the redesigned Grand Cherokee for the 2017 model year and maybe they will have all LED lights by then. But if Sergio is still at the head of the table at that time(probably not), then they will cut corners again.
