Automatic headlights?

Has anyone ever tried to install the automatic headlights in a 2014 sport? They come standard or as options in the Sahara and Rubicon. Is it just a switch? Or is in a whole integrated harness which the sports don't have installed? (Kinda like remote start.)

Don't know and never tried, but in my '05 WK the fog lights were pre-wired, it just need the housings, the stalk, and programming.

Procal allows you to program daytime running lights, I have my fogs running now and you can pick and choose what lights you use. It's a 2008 though, not sure if the new ones do the same. Maybe someone else can chime in.

Pro cal works on the 2014s too. Choice of headlights, fog lights or side lights once in gear I believe.

I may be wrong, but I think the op is asking about headlights that turn on automatically when it gets dark, not daytime running lights.

Pretty sure that he is wanting to know about the lights that turn on automatically depending on outside brightness.

I haven't seen it added--however with the way the JKs are made (all are modular--you really can, albeit at great expense, add anything you want to any model from another trim level).

As an owner of a 14 with auto lights (and a ram owner with auto lights (same setup) what you will need:

You are going to need a new stalk for the lights (there IS a marker for the AUTO on/off), you will need the sensor (sits in the middle of the dash up front). and as both of these will need to talk to the can-bus system, you are going to need a re-program.

The three differences that I am unsure about at the moment. 1. If the harness is the same and these simply clip into it, or 2) is there a different harness altogether. 3) is the dash the same. I can't see the dash being different, however it might be to accommodate the sensor.

You could just use a photo sensor and relays to power the headlights from a switched power source.....major hack but should work....or just twist the stalk when it gets dark

What KCJK said.

I'd gladly give up my automatic headlight feature for headlights that actually illuminate the road.
