Is it possible to put LED headlights from high altitude on an altitude?

I picked up my 2015 grand Cherokee altitude about a month ago. I love the truck and it has everything that I wanted on it. The only thing that I wish it didn't have is the halogen headlamps. For me to get the high altitude was almost another $10,000 and there was a bunch of options that I really didn't care about. The only option I would have definitely purchased was the LED headlights.

I plan to keep the jeep for a very long time so I am thinking about upgrading the headlamps. Does anyone know if it is possible to purchase the headlamps from the high altitude from Jeep parts department and have them put into my altitude? I realize the swap may not be cheap but since I plan to keep the truck for a long time it's something I'd be willing to do. I'd purchase the parts then have the dealership do the install. Can anyone confirm this would be a direct fit and has anyone else ever done this ? I just don't want to do this and then later on have problems down the road. Thank you guys

Its major rework. There have been a few recent discussions that have more details. You do have to replace the headlamp assemblies which is the easy part. You may be able to get from a dealer for about $2000, or perhaps ebay knock offs for much less. But then it gets interesting as you need a wiring harness adapters and components, which are not easy to come by. My recollection is that no one is completely satisfied with the quirks and the hoops you have to jump through to make them somewhat work. When I get back to a computer I'll try to do a forum search for recent threads.

Oh wow ok Thanks cold case. Looks like I'll just upgrade the bulbs and do a rigid industries 20 inch led Lightbar in the lower grill and call it a day. That sucks I was really looking forward to getting those lights.
