LED Headlamp Upgrade...Yay? or Nay?

So i recently purchased a '15 JGC Limited without the Luxury package that includes the LED Headlamps. (Single Exit Exhaust as well) After reading this forum for a while, I decided to purchase the lights knowing that I had to most likely purchase a harness from (ProjectorRetrofits) or find a shop that can make them work like OEM.

The problem is that I am already $1000 in the hole with the lights, plus another $380 for the Harness, and then maybe another $100 - $150 to install them. Total = approx. $1500 so....

Should I continue with the MOD, or should I reinvest that $1500 for other MOD's and what should they be? How far can $1500 take me with other MOD's? (I dont really care about "Performance"..I am more about the looks of the vehicle) What do you folks think?

Is Dabitz trying to buy your lights?

Seriously, keep the lights and put them in. Did you contact jeep_addicted for a harness? With his harness, it's a relatively easy install.

These lights are by far my favorite mod, no comparison to halogens, and after a bulb upgrade, I love them even more.

Lmao, nah he has his own set already, he told me to contact Jeep_addicted but I had already reached out to him for the harness. Small World? Forum? lol

But thanks for the info. Do I still need to get them professionally installed even with the harness? or can i just pop the bumper and plug them in myself? ( No electrical knowledge) I was getting a bit discouraged about putting on the lights, but it seems like im getting back on board...unless someone can convince me to do something else with my $

No electrical knowledge necessary to install jeep_addicted's harness. Very easy install. I've done quite a few things to my '14 limited, and the headlight upgrade is still my favorite mod.

Correy will be the man IFFFFF he can get me a working harness...seems like he's hard to reach given the high demand.

Mod is worth it (waiting patiently for harness to install SRT lights)! Correy is great to work with, and I am sure he is being swamped by tons of requests for this harness. I wouldn't give up yet.

Re: LED Headlamp Upgrade...Yay? or Nay?

Ok, so verdict is in...I will continue with the Headlight swap...what else should I do? My limited only came with a single exhaust. Is it worth modding in a second exhaust? Also, I have read from many users that the road magnet lowering kit is pretty good and that it actually provides a more comfortable ride? anyone can confirm this?
