as far as the wiring is concerned, there are two issues that i see here.
first, when my jeep came off the assembly line, the low beam bulb remained on when the high beams were put on. long story short, i had some issues with an incorrect u-connect module being installed. it reset my TIPM, and now when my highs are turned on, the lows go off, and my service department can't figure out why. this would be an issue when retrofitting the projectors, because all the high beam wire would be used for would be to activate a switch that moves the diffuser upward inside the projector itself, allowing the projector to emit more light and making it a high beam. if the low beams go off when you turn on the highs, then in this scenario, when you put on the high beams, the diffusor would move up, but the lamp would turn itself off.
another issue would be the use of the DRL (daytime running lights). my jeep did not come with the DRL system, only the limited with the Security and Cargo Convenience Package, or a compass with the All-Weather Capability Group did. by installing the projector headlights, you would be eliminating any use of the inner bulb, because it no longer acts as a high beam, unless you wire it in to be as such, but why would you want a hallogen high beam when you could have an HID high beam, unless you did both. this isn't really an issue that would stop the swap, but i would want everything to work exactly like factory or i wouldn't do it at all.
hope this stuff helps. i'd like to see someone else do the swap and document it before i attempted it. i don't like being a guinne pig (especially on a car that has a warranty lol)
