If you are talking about the 2014 HIDs...then I agree with you. When I first saw a 2014 GC in person, I liked the regular headlight assembies better. The plastic filler pieces in the underneath corners of the HID assembies look like a cheap after thought. Why couldn't Chrysler design a HID headlight assembly that fills up the whole space?

One of the things that first attracted me to the 2014 GC was the cool DRLs. I would like them better if they would not have put the filler plastic below, but even so I still love them.

Re: 2011 Laredo to 2014 Limited.

On my black one I don't notice it. I absolutely needed to have these lights. I am really liking this one over the laredo I had.

Mine is black also so it really isn't too bad. Maybe the aftermarket will come up with something to go in place of the fillers. I've even thought about adding the Summit headlight washers. I've had them on other vehicles and liked them.

Re: 2011 Laredo to 2014 Limited.

I bet you could do something about it like cover them with vinyl after say filling it in with some filler.

I'm going from a 2012 Laredo X hemi to a 2014 limited hemi with a tow package, the off-road adventure package one, with 8.4 nav radio.

I actually like the 18 inch smoked rims on the 2014 much better than the 20 inch ones. Not only do I think they look better they also are cheaper.

I really wanted the ventilated seats in the new headlights, but the rest of the Lux II package seemed a little crazy in what it adds in random upgrades and cost. I couldn't find a vehicle that had tow, lux II, and nav without the 20in rims.

I know there is an upgrade for the lights for about $1000. Not sure how possible it is to upgrade the seats.

I like the 18's too. But I plan on some aftermarket 20's. I think I have them picked out.

Yeah, it kinda blends in on black vehicles. But any other color, it stands out like a sore thumb. In my opinion, the black plastic filler makes the upgraded headlights look more like the base model headlights.

Sore thumb? Get serious. On an Overland, it blends in with the seven grilles. This uproar is much ado about nothing.

Not at all. It's ugly, plain and simple. Just because you don't have a problem with it doesn't mean that other people don't think it's ugly. Any other vehicle in existence that has an unpainted, flat black filler piece similar to that is a lower-end model that's missing something that a higher model has. They should be ashamed of themselves for not creating a different bumper cover that actually fit the shape of the headlights.
