Re: New Upgraded Headlights

I installed the 2014 SRT lamps into my 2013 SRT, had my Jeep dealership do it while I was on vacation. $1000 later, I am a very happy customer and I know it was done by someone who knows the system. Users Pbalias, Kuba SRT, and I are the only ones who have undertaken this swap. I have some slight issues with mine (involving the auto leveling on startup and need to install resistors to trick the computer from thinking a bulb is out) but I hope to resolve them within the coming week.

Re: New Upgraded Headlights

looks so good! those headlights make the front end of the SRT my opinion, those headlights on the 14-15s make them look so mean, good job

Re: New Upgraded Headlights

The retrofit fit of the newer srt8 headlights into earlier models has been done before and it looks horrible. There is a gap under the headlights so it looks like a round peg in a square hole.

WOW, thanks for the kinds words, I don't care for a lot of things in your "build" thread, but keep my opinion to myself.

That video is from a very bad angle... looks more like this
