Wasn't sure where to put this. Noticed this today. Is this something jeep has always done? At first I thought there was a problem with weather stripping.

Re: Jeep Cherokee 2014 Trailhawk

One of several Easter Eggs hidden by the Jeep engineers. Happy Hunting for the rest of them.

I would imagine it would require a relay harness and cbfix like the Grand Cherokee.

Status update on HIDs..

I'm not sure if this applies to all trim levels but... On my trailhawk, the headlamps are in a sealed watertight compartment. Looked at it with the service dept. at my nearby Jeep dealership. Adding HIDs would require drilling through the sealed compartment to run the switch relay wire to the fuse block. He said he has a supplier that makes a kit for the Fiat 500 that has a similar headlamp situation. The kit has the ballast, relay, etc, all mounted to the screw on cap that replaces the one thats already there and makes it a very simple plug and play install and leaves the watertight integrity of the headlamp. Said he will contact them to see where they are in the production of one for the cherokee.

Likely there will be other people out there and if you're not concerned with keeping the lamp casing watertight, there are already options available..

Goodluck

Thank you! If the halogen bulbs are HIR2 which is also called 9012 than you would need to get a 9006 HID kit for the Cherokee.
