No cancelers needed on the 2014 just plug the H11 directly in. No fans just a nice massive metal finned heat sink to cool it, no wire warts, modules, relays, cancelers or any of that junk involved in all those other LED kits I sent back. could not have been an easier install.



They are very bright plenty of usable light. These are definitely less blue than any of those other LED kits I have tried but they are not a complete match to the 4300k headlights. Definitely closer than anything else LED I have tried but they are whiter. if I had to guess id probably say they are in the 5000k range maybe a little less. I definitely like them a lot they are a keeper. What I did though after seeing the color is order the OSRAM CBIs for the headlights which are 5000K should match up with them well. I ended up getting these LEDs for nothing due to idiot UPS screw ups loosing and finding things and wasting all my time and Xenon depot has the CBIs on sale for $179 so will just put the LED money to the CBIs. When I had the fender liners pushed back looks like easy to get the headlight bulbs from that side rather than going in from the top and unhooking all that stuff on top. The CBIs are not supposed to loose any lumens with the higher 5000k temperature like a lot of the other higher temperature bulbs do. They are supposed to retain the 3200 lumens. If I remember right this is what Scott did he put 5000K headlights with the SRT LEDs.



Now I just need to figure out how to get the fogs to stay on when high beams are on.

Awesome. Glad to hear another success story. Would love to know what they changed for 2015-16 to need relays and resistors on all this stuff. Mine shipped out yesterday so I will be done too.

The access to the headlights are not any better from below. The access panel was of no use to me. Maybe others but for me it was simple

Disconnect battery
Remove pcm connection for extra space
Twist cap
Rotate lock holding bulb
Wiggle loose
Disconnect harness
Reverse steps


Pass side
Remove air box (very simple)
Repeat steps on this side

Aside from my hands being scraped up it took me about 25-30 minutes including battery and removal and install of oem parts.

So that access port in the fender liner is fairly useless but when I popped the 2 fasteners out and took out the 10mm screw and folded the whole fender liner back it looked like I had a clear shot to the headlights. I can get my hand up there turn the dust cap. once you have the dust cap off is there something that would keep the bulb from coming out from that side? the reason I ask is my back is very messed up and its easier for me to work from the fender well side than it is bending from the top. That said if the top is only way than ill make it work I guess. you've done it you know better than me. thanks

If you can do it at the bottom more power to you! This is not an exact photo of the jeep clip, but on both sides of the bulbs back box there is a clip that goes up or down. If you pull down on one side the other side goes up. It's like a teeter totter So don't think both sides have to move. Hey are finger tight and have to be locked back into place once the bulb is FIRMLY planted. After you put the bulb in intentionally try and pull it out with decent strength. It can appear to be locked into place but move around. Other members have had issues with bulbs just sitting there.

Get some latex gloves too, if I would have had them I wouldn't have had to be so careful to avoid contact. That made my life a little more hell because I constantly had to avoid by all means touching them with my oily hands lol

Does the power wire come off easy, is it squeeze release type thing. Do you have the CBIs in yours now or something else?

I folded the front part of the metal clip down ever so slightly. Not sure if you have to or not. After the bulb comes out just pull it straight down. Does not require any tools just manual yanking.

Edit forgot to answer question:

Yes. The osram 5000k CBI bulbs I put them in a few days ago. Unfortunately the car has sat ever since. The time that I did drive was day time so I just turned them on to burn in a little better

These worked perfect for my non summit bumper I'm assuming they are the same regardless

you really don't need to replace them, I guess you can if you want. They are made to be removed and reused. Just take a pair of needle nose plyers grab the center pin and pull up. the pin pulls out about an inch and releases it. put them back in and push the pin in. mine weren't damaged at all from removing

The back side of these ones were a little weird looking not the standard round like the ones you usually see but round would probably work in their place if you wanted to replace them.

The factory ones definitely don't do what you are saying... They are not reusable

The factory ones on my 2014 Summit are most definitely reusable I just had them off last week and that was the first time they were ever taken off.

The factory rivets are single use. And need to be replaced with a rivet gun/tool if you choose to stay with them.

Clearly your car had the bumper off at some point... Or atleast the fenders/liners on both sides? Something doesn't make sense. You are talking about the ones in the front wheel wells right? Not the ones on top under the hood.
