I tried this swap yesterday. I have LED reflectors want the projectors would even be fine without the bending feature just love the look better. Few things to note. Standard LED REFLECTORS have 3 plugs from the harness. As the LED projectors have one central plug on the back of the headlight. The pins are also different between that main plug. I can plug them up, headlights work and daytime running lights turn on. Side markers, turn signals and high beams don’t work. The photo of the connector with less wires coming out are the reflectors and one with more are the projectors. If anyone makes/can make a harness to make these work would be wonderful lol. I assume the turn signals and side markers don’t work because there’s no where to plug them in from the reflectors harness and pins are different/ missing on the harness for the reflectors to produce that ability in the headlight. Also there’s TONS of wires inside the actual headlight itself on the Projectors. (See photos). Didn’t want to short anything out so no way for me to text each wire to know what wire/pin location to add to my existing harness to give them power.

Really hoping someone can figure this out as I also love the look of the projector and hoping to be able to swap.
Same..... it’s going to take another harness but I believe it can work for sure. Also just need to know what PIN connector does what. If I know that I could just splice my current harness into the empt PIN holes

Does the wiring diagram label the wires? I know that from another post, the projector LEDs interact with a few different modules.

https://www.f150gen14.com/forum/thr...r-to-projector-led-headlights.1859/post-36147

Another option is to find a projector equipped truck and probe every wire. You would at least be able to figure out the high beams without much trouble.

As for the leveling, someone should be able to make a stand alone adapter that can level the headlights manually by simulating the factory signal.

The dynamic bending is slightly more complicated, as it adjusts with the speed and steering angle.

This is what I was able to get. It’s a diamgram showing each connector position for the LED projector connections. The bending would be great addition but honestly I just want them to work at least normally for now lol

I just picked up a set of these headlights for my ‘22 XLT 302a and I’m hoping someone comes out with a plug-n-play harness to get these to work

any follow up from the OP on this? I too like the look of these and am interested in swapping. I don't necessarily need the bending function, but would like for the rest to be working properly

Yes, boostedgreygoose does make a harness, but for some reason all of the sellers of harnesses are out of stock right now.

Precision Retrofits also makes a harness. Check out the details on the HCM and such.

Did anybody get this sorted? Has anyone tried just hardwiring from quad headlights to projector? I know leveling functionality would be gone but I'm just trying to get my headlights to work with the basic functionalities.
Thanks in advance
