Seward Offroad led lights

Well recently I purchased 2in led fog lights from Seward Offroad. They are a fairly new company I think only a year or two old. They have light bars all the way up to 50in for a little over $500. I was told they are suppose to be releasing their aqua series and light brackets at Jeep Beach this year I can't wait to see their brackets they will probably be a fraction of the cost from other companies. They are $124.99 plus shipping. Jake and the guys down in Florida are really awesome guys and are jeep enthusiast. Well first off they were packaged very well with Styrofoam around all sides.

They give you all the mounting hardware and I was very surprised they even supplied me with the other end of the connector. You can see on the end of the connector the one opening is black and im sure you all know what that means thats where your negative wire goes.

Now before I took the connector apart I went ahead and made a black mark on the outer shell of the connector on the negative side to make sure I put it back together right if that makes sense. I used a very small screwdriver to get the connector apart.

Once I got the connector apart I pushed the wire through and bent it over the connector and when you put the connector back together it smashes the wire on the terminal and makes a good connection. You could probably solder them together for more security but my gun wasn't working. Another reason I didn't solder them was because I pulled the connector apart that they did and that was how they did it and it was in there pretty solid. When I installed the connectors on my jeep I went ahead aput silicone around the wires just to make sure water would stay out then I taped the connector and zipped tied it up.

I think they look awesome on my jeep next thing is a 30in on the hood.

Out playing today with them on I think it looks a lot better than with the regular fog lights on the bumper.

I will get pictures posted up of them at night. They are so bright I can barely even tell my low beams are on. My brights are quite a bit brighter and shine farther, but these are the fog pattern and not the spot pattern so I kind of expected that

What kind of wire(gauge,type), switch, fuse etc did you use to wire these? I just purchased the 6" light bar from them to mount to my roller fairlead and there are no instructions

I used tge factory foglight wiring i didnt use a seperate fuse because the amp draw is so low let me check their specs tomorrow and i will give u more info on what u should use. U probably shouldnt need more than a 10amp fuse and 14 gauge wire. I would say that would be plenty safe but let me cgeck on that tomorrow

if you could find a 3amp fuse that would be ideal for the 6in otherwise i wouldnt use any bigger than a 5amp fuse. For wire size you should be plenty safe with 18 gauge wire.

I'm trying to figure out how to wire these lights. I opted to not use the harness/plug they gave me, instead butt connected with shrink wrap. Obviously the black ground for the light goes to the chassis somewhere. But as far as running the power for the lights, I know the power wire has to be ran to the switch, I did get an inline fuse, and I'm now stuck on where to go with the wiring from here. Which is odd b/c I ran my KC lights wiring with no problem.

the switch itself depending on the type may also have a ground on it or it will just go straight from the switch to the battery fairly simple if you still cant figure out let me know i might be able to find you some pics

Hey, I'm looking at getting the 2" lights for fog lights and was curious, how did you tap into your fog light switch to run the wiring? I want to do mine the same way.

There is a connector that the fog lights plug into under the fender. I just cut off that connector and used the one they gave me. U could use the factory connector but i didnt use it becuae it looked like it had been spliced a couple times from previous owners

Those are the same lights I sell. They hold up extremely well. I have a pair on my shop for security lights actually, theyve been on 24/7 for about 8 months now and none of the bulbs have burnt out. They are extremely durable, I usually take my customers to the parking lot and let them throw the light up in the air as high as they can to try and break it. After they see the light still works perfectly I show them my 'lense test' video and they usually walk out with some new lights.
