    I am selling my Renegade, so I am no longer in need of these lights. They've been on the vehicle for the past year. They work perfectly. I had them custom made by Kustom 54 Lighting. They use all Morimoto components. The shroud is the Panamera switchback shroud. This gives you four-dot LED DRLs (similar to Porsche). The LEDs will also flash orange with your turn signal and then switchback to white DRLs. The lights also come with the HID kit (Morimoto). I am asking for $750 shipped for everything. I paid well in excess of a $1300 for all of this. My loss is your gain. Please message me if interested.

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Thanks. They may still be available by the time you have $750...not much interest in them right now lol. A little more info on them. These are actually built from OEM lights. I purchased them brand new from Mopar and sent them to Kustom 54. They ran about $500 for the pair. The Morimoto components were around $300, and then labor was over $500 IIRC. So, getting the entire setup for half off basically for a little under a year’s worth of usage. The red paint inside was matched to the towhooks on the Trailhawk.

    Just wanted to say how nice those are. It’s a shame that no one out there wants to make aftermarket parts for the Renny. So many out there willing to buy parts to customize. So many forced to spend too much for something a company could make cheaper and sell out like crazy. Sorry for the rant. You lights are some of the coolest I have seen. Good design.

    Here are some updated photos of everything. I just packed everything up into a shipping box. Willing to take less than $750 on these, as I'd just like to move them at this point. They're just sitting here taking up room. I should also mention that these are OEM headlamps I purchased through the local Chrysler dealer, not some crappy aftermarket units.

    It's not a bad install if you have some basic tools. You have to remove the front bumper, but that's straightforward. There is a walkthrough on how to do that on another Renegade forum. So, you pull the front fascia off and then there are 3 bolts that hold each light on. From there, everything is plug and play (except the LED DRLs). You hook a wire up to the battery and then mount the two ballasts and computer and ground each ballast. I was able to use existing bolts to do all this, so I didn't have to drill anything. For the LED DRLs, you have to cut into the turn signal wire. This is the second vehicle I've put retrofitted HIDs in with these DRLs, so for both of them, I've bought aftermarket 3-wire harnesses to do this. These harnesses are included with the lights. The male end is already soldered to each headlight, you just need to hook up the female end to the car wiring. To do this, you just strip away a small portion of the wire on each turn signal wire. I'd recommend soldering and then using some shrink sleeves and/or some electrical tape to protect everything. Not a hard exercise to do; nothing that can't be easily undone. And using the harnesses vs. hooking up the wire from the headlight directly to the car wiring allows you to easily take the headlight out if you need to.

    Also, all headlight adjustment still works. So, you can adjust up and down and left and right.

    Would it be possible to change the color of the red part, or is that inaccessible?

    Unfortunately, that's not an easy exercise. First, you'd have to open them up...not that hard now that they've been opened once, and they're no longer permasealed (which is a huge PITA). However, the shroud is glued to the projector, so you'd have to do a lot of taping around it and then paint it. It would be difficult/PITA. Honestly, not worth the effort.

    The red is actually the same color as the tow hooks on the Trailhawk. The red and black on the shroud are finished in gloss clear coat, while the rest of the housing is matte.

    They look fantastic. But I don't have a TH, and mine is orange. :p

    You shouldn't be having this hard of a time selling these. Have you x-posted to jeeprenegadeforum and /r/JeepRenegade?
