SRT Tail Light on Overland

Hello Everyone,

I'm about to purchase my 2nd GC and want to mod this out a little. I will soon have a white overland and would like to "panda" it out with black emblems and the SRT tail lamps. I've searched around and couldn't find an answer on the tail lights:

1) Is it a direct plug n play?
2) I bought a set on ebay and wondering if the seller is being truthful about it being factory oem lights. I've attached pictures of the front and rear label. Can anyone tell or know if this label is OEM?

**Couldn't attach pictures, but the label says "AL AUTOMOTIVE LIGHTING" "CHRYSLER " with the appropriate part number**


I appreciate any help/guidance.

-Ben-

Re: SRT Tail Light on Overland

First of all what year? Regardless though, yes they are plug and play. There is a new set of aftermarket 14-15 SRT lights on eBay that costs just under $700. OEM will probably be closer to a grand for all four pieces.

Sorry, picking up a 2015 JGC. I found an SRT set for $400. Hopefully the sticker with AL Automotive is OEM/ Chrysler. I was under the impression it should say MOPAR.

Re: SRT Tail Light on Overland

Ok did some digging around for you. Yes the AL "automotive lighting" units are OEM original mopar parts.
I looked on eBay and only found one complete set of 2014/2015 Grand Cherokee tail lights for 400 and just an FYI those are Alritude tail lights and not SRT. The earlier altitude tail lights have a dark gray bezel and the standard brighter red lens. SRT versions have gloss black bezels and darker red lens.
Not sure if this is the set you are looking at, but just don't want to see you guy something you think is SRT when it's actually not. Either way though automotive lighting is OEM!!

Re: SRT Tail Light on Overland

Thanks for your help.

I was searching around online yesterday and pulled the trigger on the darker SRT tails. I also did find other tails with the same labels which makes me believe that AL is OEM.

Thanks again and I will post pictures once installed.

Awesome! if you don't mind me asking were you able to find a pretty good deal? Like i said before the lowest I could find for a complete set of SRT lights is just under $700 and those were aftermarket...although they look identical and as good as OEM.

Re: SRT Tail Light on Overland

MUCH better, looks awesome! I'm excited, I actually bought a complete set of OEM SRT lights as well for a very reasonable price.
Maybe we actually bought them from the same seller. Was it by any chance eBay seller jsande06?

Perfect thanks for the response. At first I got a little worried as he accepted what I thought was a somewhat low offer without countering at all, then I saw his low feedback, but sounds like all is good. So they arrived in perfect like new condition? Can't wait to get them!
Now if I can only track down a like new pair of SRT headlights without spending 2 grand I would be set :-)
