2014 LED Brake Light Swap to 2011/2012/2013
 
I have a 2011 JGC Overland and was at the dealer checking out the 2014's the other day. I noticed that the brake light housing appears to be the same size at rear of the vehicle (obvisouly not the tailgate portion). I am referring to the body half of the rear lamp assembly. I want to know if I could buy the 2014 LED brake body half lamp assembly and swap it into my 2011 JGC. I know I would have to keep the tailgate section the same due to the redesign of the tailgate.

Thoughts?? I'm assuming it would be a simple swap out plug and play... but I dont know if the connectors are the same or if the voltage would be the same...


Thanks in advance for your input...

I know the 2014's have a new type of electrical system, whatever that means. And I bet the connectors for the lights are different.

Good idea... I know a few people at my local dealer. I'll take it over there soon and do a quick swap to see if it works.

I'll let everyone know.

If you go and they cooperate please take pics.

If the. Overall shape of the tail gate hasn't changed then I have a theory on how it would be possible to retro fit the 2014 taillights to the 2011 - 2013.

But I will say this I don't think just doing the outside taillight would look good. Since the style is so different.

sorry....the new 14' lamps only have one plug for the entire lamp(hatch lamp anyway) The 11-13' had a plug/bulb for each function. Its not a straight swap whatsoever.
