At first glance I thought it was brand new haha. Regardless, I absolutely love it. I know this route was a bit worrisome for those considering it, but I think it really looks like those lights belong there. Beautiful Jeep.

For the HID'S the plug was nothing close to matching the factory harness..neither was the Led strip.

I had to tap the harness for the HID'S and running 2 wires to the harness that came with the lights. Pretty easy actually.

For the daytime running led strip inside the lights I just tapped the factory daytime running lights in the bumper harness..also easy.

I just used a 18v drill battery and clipped 2 wires to that for power so I could test where I had to connect the custom wiring to the new lights from the factory harness.

Those will fit structurally no problem....wiring though probably 1 or 2 plugs will fit right up and you'll have to get creative for the rest

if these could only be plug and play as the SRT also has leveling headlights which i'm guessing you lost that ability. If they were plug in play and all the options worked I would have these for sure.
