After a bit of reading, I realized that converting from LED reflector to LED projector headlights, while maintaining all of the projectors original functionality (such as cornering and auto leveling), is quite involved and requires numerous additional parts. Does anyone know if a conversion harness or other solution now exists that allows all of the lighting functions (DRL, low beam, high beam, turn signal and marker light) to work correctly?

Alpharex has a harness that converts LED reflector to use their LED projectors. I have it and all functions work without issue. No auto bend, dim etc like the OEM projectors though.

Any idea if it works with the F150 OEM projector lights ?

I would think that the harness would not work for oem units, it would work for only Alpha units.

My apologies, I should have been more specific. I am looking for a harness that can be used with the OEM LED projector headlights. My second choice is the Morimoto XB headlights, but if there is an available plug and play harness for the OEM LED projectors, I would prefer to go that route.

@dolsen Thanks and I've seen mention of other folks who also make them. With winter just around the corner, I might table this for a bit and look into the 4WD auto conversion first.

Hands down whatever LEDs my 2023 XLT has on it are the best high beams I have ever had on anything I have ever driven (71 Years old). I would not screw with them. Do something different, like dual exhausts, under hood work, Raccoon tail, whatever.

Tbh, @Eighthtry is on to something here. Unless you’re dying to have the “bending” (turning) headlamps and/or the glare free lighting, the led reflector headlamps are actually pretty damn good.

I agree that the reflector LEDs do an excellent job of lighting the road. I don't love the way they look, but given the cost to upgrade, I agree that there are better things that I could spend my money on.

They look better painted with the orange tinted. Of course there's the full-paint option

I think that when I did it, I was around $2k-2100 all in
