Can I install 2012 SRT headlamps in 2012 Laredo?

Reposting in appropriate forum.

I am interested in finding out if my wk2 laredo can get the headlamps from the SRT? they look about the same size. I am not familiar with the wiring in the SRT, but looking at just replacing the headlamp housing.

I am interested in only the housing, not the ballasts, however, getting that information would also help. I am thinking that with the new housing in place, and getting an H11 HID kit to replace my H11 bulbs would make it just plug and play.

much more expensive than retrofit my current halogen headlamps, but probably easier.

As much information shared is appreciated

Not quite that simple. The SRT headlight housing will not take a H11 bulb, it uses a D1S bulb. It also has the ballasts attached to the headlight housing. If you really want to go with those housings, contact forum member Jeep_addicted, he can make you a custom wiring harness that will allow you to use those headlights.

Thanks. I have seen his posts ib this topic but i think he wasnt using the SRT's housing. Glad to know what i am dealing with. Bottom line--housing fits but needs new harness. Correct?

Contact forum member Jeepaddicted (Correy) and he'll hook you up with the harness. I had these on my 2011 Laredo before I traded it in. PM me for his email if you want. Why would you pay for the housing and not get the conversion harness?

I am taking it step by step. I have seen his post and definitely would go for his wiring.
