You cant put the headlight assembly from a v2 into a v1, you would need to do a front end conversion to make it fit. Can you install the projectors into a v1 housing? No idea. I have some brand new V2 headlights for sale if you want to try haha

So you could do a whole front end swap on a V1 RS from a V2 RS and get projectors ? ;)

can you install low quality oem halogen projector assemblies from a gen2 into a gen1? Absolutely. Would it be worth it, even for free? Absolutely not. Let's not forget that Gen2 are complaining about poor headlight output just as much as gen1 owners. Stock headlights suck, we all know this. We also all know the solution but I see a depressingly small number of Juke retrofits actually coming to fruition around here...

After the holidays Im going to be switching out my stock headlights and retro fitting in some nice LED Halo Headlights for a jeep I found. Will it work I'm not 100%, will I figure it out damn straight lol. I know our cars us h4 bulbs and the headlights I'm buying are h13 but come with an h4 converter. I also know that our headlights are also 7in like the Jeep ones I'm buying. I will keep posted and will probably do a step by step install on the forum after I get it all done. If anyone has attempted this please lmk. I have posted a pic of the headlights if anyone is interested.

I think there's one other member that has used similar housings to these. They also have a heavily modified and lifted Juke. @Jaxxa ?

Jaxxa did it. I'm proud of him for pulling off the work even though I don't approve of the modification.

Those jeep headlights totally blow dude. Don't do it because you think they'll help you see better at night. Most aren't even legal for street usage they're so bad. I just do not understand why people are willing to spend so much time and effort (and money!) to just do something wrong. RETROFIT OR DIE.

One of my clients wanted them on his 54 f truk. Thinks they are great. Spent 6 yrs worth of weekend building it from bare metal up to put those on it. Comments?🤯

I think that he doesn't know any better. Most people don't. If you lived your whole life eating McDonalds, what are you gonna think when someone offers you wagyu beef? Or tells you the price?! Ultimately all that matters is that the client is happy... as long as he isn't endangering others with an illegal PnP HID or LED bulb set.

I look at that truck and I think "wow. what an absolute shame. six figures worth of bodywork and paint and he went with the cheapest easiest solution on one of the most critical aesthetic elements on the front end"
It ain't my truck though. Classic car folk are a special breed though, I've never really seen eye to eye with em.

Yeah I did this retrofit, but I didn't write it up because I did it in a hack-y way. I actually had a crash that shattered my headlight, and even though 13 disagrees, it is definitely an upgrade from stock headlights with halogens. I literally bought the headlights and foglights as a package for I think less than $150 so yes they are definitely cheap, the halos are not that bright and have about half the elements as it should, and believe it or not but these are actually designed as motorcycle headlights so the beam pattern is a bit off from what you would expect. As long as you mount them with a bracket that allows you to adjust them correctly, they are perfectly fine headlights and safe to use on the road.

Hey now, those lights are absolutely a Wendy's caliber burger. I never said they weren't an upgrade, I just said that it was an exorbitant amount of effort that doesn't yield sufficient results to be worthy of consideration.... IN MY OPINION... I am also woefully aware that I am in the minority of Juke owners when it comes to the attitude in which I approach vehicular modification. There is no 'right' way, despite all the smack I talk. It's all just about balance and trade-off.

Although, again, PnP bulbs are definitely the WRONG way.
