Don't believe everything you read...but that being said ....I'll share my experience...take it with a grain of salt.

I just swapped out my fogs on my 2014 last weekend to the opt7's and it took me 10 minutes...total plug and play ...they give you everything you need ....if you have any flicker you just need to plug in the capacitor they give you (opt7 kit)

I didn't have to use the capacitor and mine are working perfectly. I ordered a second set of the opt7's for my 2015 durango

if you don't care about the light output and just want the color to match the HID's then I have a set of bulbs I can give you ...just pay for shipping..

they are the Philips Diamond Vision H11 5000k's

here's a pic of them compared to the Opt7's

the Durango is on the left and has stock HID's(4300K) with the diamond vision h11's

the 2014 grand cherokee on the right has the Osram D3 66340CBI 's on headlights and the opt 7's on fogs

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

The one thing I don't like about the OPT7 fogs is that they are cooked by a fan, which if and when it fails, the LEDs will destiny themselves from the heat. I myself and getting Xenondepot h11 that uses Phillips diodes, is cooked by heat sink, and put out 2500 lumens each.

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

The fog light set up your looking for apparently are plug and play. But I went a different route. I found a shop that specializes in lights. I did an hid conversion on both the headlights and the fogs. Light output is insane. Beam pattern is great and the stock projectors handle the hids very well. Even thought I did top and bottom, I find myself only using the headlights as they are bright enough. If anyone ever does the headlights right, I recommend setting up the dogs with leds just for looks. They ballasts were digital with canbus error fix. But the fogs required something extra. I believe it was a relay harness. Long story short they came out great. I wish I could show you all but I don't know how to upload pics here.

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

Silver15altitude you are correct. I in fact did go to lightwerks. They were the only ones that could do it right and the parts have warranty for several years

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

Thanks for the post Marty. I've been looking for a shop around the NYC area to perform a similar setup for my 15' Altitude. I've read good things about lightwerkz on Yelp. How was the pricing?

Re: Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

Pricing was fair came out to about $420. Granted I got mine done while he had a Black Friday sale. Honestly you get what you pay for. This dude at the shop know what he's talking about. he has an hourly rate, but our trucks only take an hour. I was in and out. Can't even see the cables when you pop the hood. Very clean work. I have the morimoto ballasts. Once he starts working he doesn't stop until the job is finished. I'll definitely go back for other mods I plan on doing.

Hid/ Led kit 15-altitude

I would only be concerned if you ever had something electrical fail in the Jeep. Because now you'll have to either remove both HID kits so the dealer doesn't see then or take a chance and hope the dealer doesn't try to blame the HID's.

That happened to me in my 2014... and I had no choice but to bring my jeep in with my HIDs installed (no time to remove them) and what do you know the first day in for diagnostics they call me trying to blame the HIDs. Granted I have 7 years car audio installation experience and know what I'm doing what it comes to the 12v world. But just the fact I had them in there and that the dealer flagged them with the Star tech team (dealers resource at Chrysler corporate) well...let's just say it left a bad taste in Chryslers mouth. So after about 4-5 months (driving a rental) and a lot of back and forth with Chrylser I was able to get out of my 2014 (declared a lemon) and into a 2015. In the end my issue was caused by a faulty TPMS module and not the HID.

For your sake I just hope that your shop did the install the right way and are willing to remove them on short notice if you need to have electrical diagnostics done down the road.

For me the furthest I'll go is installing upgraded halogen bulbs. It's not worth the risk if I ever have something like that happen again.

I'm sorry to rain on the parade with my story, I just wanted to let everyone know what I went through recently regarding HIDs and Chrysler's view on "aftermarket lights."
