Re: Headlight angel eyes and led strip mod

Do you think it'd be fairly straight forward on creating that 2014 DRL "shape" with an LED strip.... or probably quite a bit of work?

I was thinking that maybe a sort of "jig" to fit the rope...

Re: Got a set of SRT Headlights for my 15' Altitude... and they are going into the OV

Ask your buddy if he can make me a set of 2012 headlamps with the 2014+ led strip built into them.

Re: Headlight angel eyes and led strip mod

What kind of wiring/splicing did you have to do?

Do you think with a more flexible LED strip/rope, you could make a shape very similar to the 2014 LED DRL shape?

Re: Quadra-Drive II vs Quadra-Track II

It did fix it. Good video as it shows what the QTII can do, specifically at the one point where the front driver's side tire was off the ground but the Jeep kept moving forward.

Re: Grand Cherokee Altitude Your thoughts?

The only potential negative of the new Altitude's is that you cannot get the QT-II system, which gives you 4-LO.

If you plan to off-road, you'll probably want 4-LO.
