Right, how am I going to be able to tell the difference, my Laredo doesn't have leds that's a fact, is there a projector in the headlight if it is hid instead of halogen. Basically, what's the best way for me to find out which one I have because I'm unsure.

Thanks

I'm 95% sure that if you don't have the led ring in the headlight, the bulb is halogen.

If am not mistaken the ones without the LED strip do not come with HID's. Do you notice a cut off line or are your headlights brighter than normal halogen headlights?

Re: 2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

Replaced almost all my interior bulbs(skipped the foot wells) with 360 LED bulbs (194) yesterday. Looks way better.... I did notice the lights turn off a lot quicker...not a big deal though

I don't think there is a cut off line and I'm going to suspect that it's probably halogen.

With that being said what is the route I would need to take to upgrade the lights. Hopefully there is plug and play options I've had to do some crazy cutting and splicing and soldering jobs on my last vehicles and it's just not fun I really hope that's not the case with this one...

If its halogen than you would need a H11 HID kit for you headlights and you can get a matching H11 HID kit for your fog lights.

Yes the HID kits would be plug and play for both lights, although you would need to install a relay harness and Canbus fix for the headlights it would still be a plug and play installation.

Take a look at this installation guide we posted...

Re: 2014 replacing bulbs with LED's interior , replace headlamp/fog

Anyone know what the wattage is for the factory HIDs on a 14 Summit? I'm finding suggestions it may only be 35w...might upgrade to a 55w ballast and see if that helps output any...

not going to find any reliable 55w d3s ballasts out there. Not sure how easy it is to remove the ballast from the headlight either.
