2014 Headlights - not what I thought for Limited

So I took delivery of my limited 4x4 5.7 tonight. Will take pics tomorrow (it's raining cats and dogs tonight). When dealer pulled it up, first thing i noticed is that I don't have the headlights I was expecting. Not sure how I feel about these - will be curious what others think. I think I like the fact that they don't have the plastic insert. But I liked the look of the other ones.

These are def NOT the '13 headights - those have two round bulbs. This doesn't. Did I miss something? I only thought these were the Laredo headlamps?

Congrats on delivery!

The other lights would be included in the Luxury package on the Limited.
The front of the vehicle looks much better with what you have, with a facia designed to properly mesh with the light assembly.

Re: 2014 Headlights - not what I thought for Limited

Those are the standard headlights on the Laredo and Limited. You need to opt for the Luxury Group package on the Limited to add the LED headlights.

Same headlights as the Laredo. Yes they are different than the 2013. His was discussed many time in the features thread... Congrats on the Limited...

Re: 2014 Headlights - not what I thought for Limited

Congrats on the new ride! Don't listen to Bill for he'll be getting the lights you expected. The ones I have for that matter. The ones that Sno will someday get with Lux Grp!! All jokes aside those look better aesthetically than the forced LED style.

I'm dying to drive the V8. How do you like it?

Re: 2014 Headlights - not what I thought for Limited

LOVE the V8! It's incredibly smooth. Noticable shifting difference in sport mode vs standard drive + ECO. I haven't truly let loose with it yet (will do once I get a chance to break in), but it's responsive alright. The tranny is just liquid smooth though. That was the single most important reason I waited and man, I'm glad I did. Will post more updates and pics soon guys.

Re the lights, I think I do agree with Bill on this one. The lights really look good. Think I'm sold on em!

A better look for who? The OP has his new Jeep. Can't get a better view than that.

From my vantage point, his photo only shows one lamp... and its skewed. You see something different?

Personally, i like the standard lamps more than the Audi look on the Limited.
