2014 GC lights in 2011?
 
Does anyone think those new 2014 jeep led headlights would fit in a 2011 Overland? I really love them and I think they would look great in the 2011. I saw the spy pics a while back with the white jeep where they put the 2011-13 Laredo headlights in? I sure hope I can!!:)

Nothing is impossible...it just gets expensive !

Probably would need a new font bumper and grille along with the headlights.

It'd be much more cost effective to send a set of your headlights out to someone to have them modified with LED rings. Lots of places out there will customize headlights with HID projectors, LEDs, etc.

It appears the 14's are the same dimensions as the 11-13, no? Couldn't you just swap and sell your old headlights on eBay to recoup some cash?

I think they would fit. If you look on Jeep's website for 2014 GCs, the Laredo and Limited show the old headlights on them. The Overland and Summits have the upgraded (LED) headlights pictured in the above post.

I would love to be able to retrofit both the headlight & tail light fixtures on my 2011 overland. Judging from low res cell shots and blog images it's looking like this could actually be a possibility...

If the dimensions of the lights, brackets and harnesses are the same it should be pretty simple...but things aren't usually that easy. I assume that filler piece is attached to the headlight so it could be a direct fit. We won't know until someone can compare a 11-13 Wk2 to the 2014. I'd be interested in the headlights if this is the case.

Yes I agree! It looks like the dimensions are right? But I doubt the taillights would fit because you would need a new tailgate which is possibly with a lot of $$$$$ but hey! Who knows?!;)

It looks like they will fit if you get the new grille too... The 2011 doesn't have that piece right under the light that is attached to the 2014 grille.

^^ I very much doubt that you would need a new grill. The 2014 Laredo and Limited have the old headlights from the looks of it on Jeep's website. Perhaps, that small black piece is available separately along w/ the new headlights. Guess we can make a better decision once we see the 2014's in the dealership lots... or get access to part numbers.

The more I look at the pictures the more I think this is right.

That said... I don't think I would want to make the switch anyways.
