2011 HID vs 2012/2013
I'm rebuilding a 2011 Jeep wk2 with HID headlights, the replacement headlights came in and have a different connector on the back than the old ones. The new ones are OEM refurbished HID headlights for 2011-2013 models. I remember seeing a thread somewhere that mentioned the 2011 model headlights are different. Does anyone know of a place that sells an adapter kit to convert the 2011 HID plugs to 2012/13? Or any suggestions on what to do other than find the right model year headlight. This is one of the last things to do on my Jeep to get it rebuilt and I don't really want it to delay the whole process.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Show us....I thought the lamp change was something else and not the plugs. Lets see both plugs.

Driver's Side New Headlight:

Driver's Side Plug on Jeep (looks similar but trust me, the shape is different and does not plug in):

I have not received the new passenger's side headlight yet, but the plug for it on the Jeep looks like this (it's the black more circular plug, not the brown one):

I've confirmed this with the old plugs on the old smashed up headlights I have and they are definitely different on the one new headlight I got so far...

For another example, this listing on ebay shows the correct headlight that I need - look at the picture of the back of it and you can easily see the connector is the one I need... I don't really want to buy one on ebay at this time and kind of just hoping this is an adapter I could buy.
