Make WK headlights look like WK2 headlights?

Hey guys!

I'm looking to buy a used WK around 2007-2008 model year, which is about the limit of my budget.

Does anyone know if its possible to swap out the WK's rounded headlights for WK2's rectangular headlights?

Or even swap for 99-05 WJ's headlights which are also rectangular.

I really like the look of the squared off rectangular headlights, but the WK has two rounded bumps on top of its headlights. I notice the hood also has rounded cutouts to fit the headlight and the front side quarterpanels are also involved.

Is there any kind of body kit or mod to get rectangular headlights like the WJ's or WK2's onto the WK?

Any ideas would be appreciated!

With enough money, anything can be done. There currently isn't any DIY type kits out there to accomplish this. The whole hood would need to be re-worked to accommodate a rectangular headlight. Bumper might be a bit easier to fill in the gap. Not even sure about mounting.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

I think you should look into getting projectors...OEM's not the the space ship ones...Ofcourse you'd have to change the bumper, lower fascia, grille and chrome trim piece and lower bumper support. I did it and it cost about 400-500$. I bought my bumper on ebay.....waited for the right color and went for it. Jeep gets looks from newer jeeps lol...

Just saw this thread & thought i'de share a bit of Photochopping of my own. I too think the WK2 lights look way cooler than the stock WK1's.
