SRT flavored facelift

Finally got my facelift done on my Jeep, big thanks to pbalias and Jeep_addicted for the help.

2015 SRT-8 headlights, and 2013 SRT-8 grill swapped on my Summit. All OEM headlight functions work perfectly. The auto-level actually seems to work faster on the new ones than my old ones.

Next project will be making a set of LED tails.

Yea, I'm going to make a filler panel for that. Just need to decide how I want to do it and if I want it body colored or black.

With the DRLs on driving around, you really can't see it, and nobody that has seen it in person has said anything. But it does bother me.

Re: SRT flavored facelift

Good progress so far. It's just personal opinion, but I would lose the chrome fog bezels as those just don't seem to mesh right with the look you're going for. I say put the standard black ones in and I think that would help the front end look significantly.

Re: SRT flavored facelift

Can't you also get the filler piece from the 15 for that space?

There is no filler piece on the 14+ models more than what he has already (the headlight washer shroud). The bumper openings are different sizes.

Re: SRT flavored facelift

Yeah, or otherwise his other option would be to go all out and add a grill and bumper from a '14+ model. Maybe that's a good idea considering the lights don't fit properly. Could even probably find a bumper cover and grill for a reasonable price used.

Re: SRT flavored facelift

Looks great! How hard was the wiring? I'm thinking of doing this to mine as well
