Rock Lights!!!

Anyone place fog lights in different locations besides the factory locations?

Tryin to put some lights on my friend's WJ

The goal is to really shine up under the vehicle near the front and rear tires as well as the diffs.

Pictures would be great!

Thanks!

I have them on my ZJ . But then I am lights happy...

Front axle...



rear axle......


and full view....




The front is mounted to the side of the drivers upper control arm mount..

The rear is bolted thru the tranny skid plate..
I can get pictures of the mounts if you would like..

I also put silicone all around the light lens and any place that could have potentially leaked because I do alot of water stuff...

Sorry it took me so long to reply..

Here is the front...

Cant really see it cause its covered in mud but thats it.. (red arrow..)

No it doesnt hit the drive shaft .. Just a bad picture.. and yes. The blue arrow is to the wire for the light.. It got pulled out while I was mudding...

Its screwed to the Control arm mount just out of Range of motion of the control arm..

The back is bolted to the skid..


Here is my new Muffler..

And my new tires..


Sorry ... Got carried away with the pics..

as someone who has never gone rock crawling (yet) what is the purpose of having the lights under the Jeep? is it to assist your spotter or do you have a periscope to drive over the rocks with?

Here's an article in Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road. The same folks that picked the 1996 Grand Cherokee Limited as 4x4 of the Year.

Did you say the 96 was the Jeep of the year? Must have been a stocker.
