Stock HID swap into Altitude Headlights?

Who is the specialist on this
My overland has the factory HID'S and auto leveling if that matters.

I want the black look but don't want to lose light output with smoking the lenses.

Is it possible to simply pull my lights from the housing then reinstall into a set of altitude headlights?

Main objectives are:
- reusing HID
- adding smoked look

Thanks

get a set of the SRT headlights...you'll get the blacked out look and also get the adaptive feature

its a simple plug and play ...you cannot easily remove the lens from the headlight to paint the insides...but if you send them to a headlight shop they can do it ...easier to just get new SRT headlights and sell your stock ones


Here's a look at mine before and after the SRT lights

***FYI- You can also add the Osram D3 CBI's in when you swap out the lights and increase your output by quite a bit***

Looks great but now I'm more interested in that intercooler I see, haha.
Seems like a set of srt's are my best option

Ha ...yeah that intercooler really sticks out ...it's part of the RIPP supercharger setup I have in my Jeep...if you're looking for power then this is the only way to go

As for the headlights...you can swap out the factory ones and install the SRT ones in like 1 hr..just need to remove the front bumper cover and the headlights come off with the removal of 4 bolts

Good luck
