Purple Headlight Ring

Has anyone else had this happen? ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1423188433.337333.jpg

I know the dealership will handle it but I'm trying to judge how much downtime I'll have.

Is each bulb in the ring independent and changeable?

Wow, I haven't seen that before. Now if both DRL's looked like that entirely it would be kinda cool.

Re: Purple Headlight Ring

I'm guessing they will have to replace the whole assembly.

Re: Purple Headlight Ring

I have seen this happen before on a 14 GC Overland and the entire assembly did get replaced. The dealer had to get permission from Chrysler to order the part though as the assembly was $1900.00 for the Overland. I have the Summit and the headlight assemblies are $2300.00 each for it. I found out the prices when both of my headlights were designated as defective.

Re: Purple Headlight Ring

Since the leds are sealed in there Im guessing its a replacement headlight job.

What he said, if I could get a nice purple on both, that would be neat. Kinda like that look.
Doubt if I could go with red in any state in the USofA...

Re: Purple Headlight Ring

Hi I have the same issue. Did the dealer replaced the whole headlight assembly with no cost? Mine just have this car for about two months. Still part of the warranty right?

Purple Headlight Ring

On a beach. Dropped it off the day before I left and am picking it up Monday.

They said they would email if there were any issues and haven't heard anything.

Will report back on Monday.

Curious to see what they do with all the noise coming from my front suspension, too.

ps. I've only had mine since Dec. it was a Nov '14 build.

Re: Purple Headlight Ring

Picked my truck up today. They confirmed they'll be replacing the entire headlight assembly but it's on "sever backorder" so I could be looking at a month before the part comes in.

With regards to the suspension noise, they said the spare tire was loose and had to be tightened. That's the noise I was hearing. Seems to be gone now, but I'll be keeping a keen ear on it!
