2014 Halogens = TERRIBLE
 
Awful, awful headlights. I'm shocked at how badly it illuminates the road. Yesterday was my first try with them at night and I am not impressed at all. The cutoff is great and they are aimed properly, but it's just not putting out enough lumens to see anything beyond a few feet in front of me.

I guess HIDs are the alternative?

Sounds like a HID retro is the ticket. Maybe try different bulbs?

After having HID headlights for the last six years it's really a big difference when I drive something with halogens. HIDs have spoiled me. HID high beams light up the night unbelievably, couldn't live without them.

Sounds like someone needs to retrofit in some nice projectors and HIDs.

I couldn't own a car without HIDs anymore. I get angry when I drive rental cars without HIDs now.

Drfinitely should get the HID retrofit, looks better and also gives off so much more light

If the 2014s come with the H11 bulbs. Try the H9 conversion. I did it and the light output is night and day!

I must have bright headlights. How did I ever drive in the 60's and 70's with "sealed beam" headlights?

Good point.

These bulbs will easily replace the ones in the 2014 overloads or any jeep with the lux 2 package?

The short answer is NO.

Here is why:

2014 Laredo/Laredo E/ Base limited (Only these models have the H11 halogen projectors)

2014 Limited w/AHN Luxury package /Overland/Summit (These use the new D3S xenon capsules)

So you can only use the H9 bulb upgrade on a 2014 - Up laredo and base limited.
