Headlight upgrade

I was wondering if the headlight upgrade on a 2015 Laredo is as straightforward as just swapping the headlights or you have to get different wiring as well.
Here is what I'm talking about. I want to go from these stock headlights:

To these HID ones:

How involved is the swap?

Been lots of discussion on the details, if no one jumps in here you should be able to find something current. The easiest, and probably least expensive method, may be to trade your Jeep in on one with the headlights you want

It's a software issue that will not allow you to simply swap the headlights.

It's not a software issue, its a wiring harness issue that is different. If you look up the recent threads on here there is a guy that sells the wiring harness for $450.

Well its both hardware and software, but the adapter harness seems to adapt close enough.
