Did the OEM LED headlight conversion. Had a friend do the wiring. I felt it was above my skill set to do on my own. LOL. Replacing the headlights themselves is straight forward. Wiring to the BCM is a complete pain. Adding the wiring harness to the headlights is easy but once you get to the cab part that’s where the real fun begins. LOL. Unfortunately i didn’t get any pics of the cab portion. Space is a little tight. Might think about removing the passenger seat to give yourself extra room if you’re thinking about doing it yourself. Waiting on a tazer to arrive to do the programming so the high beams and halos function properly but at least the low beams function as they should. I forgot how well LEDs work. The difference is huge from the halogen. Definitely recommend the upgrade.

Nice. Where'd you get them from?
Northridge 4x4 had them in stock for $775. Figured i was spending at least that much OEM or not so might as well get OEM.

Nice! Did you do the tail lights, too? Or did you spec the blind spot option that comes with them?

Just the OEM headlights but LED taillights are on my list. I just have a pretty basic rubicon that came with the halogens. No extra safety features.

I’m in the same boat with a similar build. I ask because I have been considering picking up a set of the non blind spot LED tail lights and retrofitting. Hoping for a painless install but honestly haven’t looked too far into it just yet. Hoping someone else dives in first! ;)

For what it’s worth, @AllMoparParts.com has some good pricing on new OEM goodies. He priced out some LED tails for me.

Sweet. I’ll check it out.

If you go for the swap just know you’ll either need to go to the dealership to get it flashed or get a taser to program for the LED. My bright and halos wouldn’t work correctly until i got the taser.

Thanks for the tip. I figure it best to go ahead and get a Tazer when the time comes. We'll eventually get to the lift and tires after warranty runs out and Tazer will be helpful.

Short of that, I'm hoping for a mainly plug and play for the OEM LED tails. Hopefully nothing like you saw with your headlights.
