There are a lot of people who have mounted them in a similar fashion. But I must say, that is one bad *** looking jeep.

There the Cree 18W 4x4, as for the switch you'll need a small piece
of two way tape an mount that anywhere .
As for the mounting bracket you'll an 2 1/8 x 5'' long piece of 1/8''
aluminum an custom bend that, so she rest up along inside door area
an a couple of fat sheet metal screws, an she's done .

I used an 1/8 x 6'' long drill bit, to pre drill the hole's, its very tight in there
an there's hardly any room to do anything, an its right at the bottom
of the windshield too .

screws I used, but I did predrill the holes first .

Soooo, what was it supposed to be friend? I asked what they were and how you did it, since otherwise, I don't see the objective of your post...

Yes, you did friend. Looks good, and I appreciate the follow up. I was wondering why you posted it if you weren't going to explain what you did and how you did it. That's all.

Are they 18volt lights or 18watt? I count 6 lights so I'm assuming they're 18watt total? (each led being 3watts?)

I have a pair of the 16 watt ones and love them!

Braddf: Below is my 16watt output.. keep in mind that mine are a flood beam... they are also offered in spot beams (and my crappy camera didn't show just how bright they are)

I put a pair of Rigid D2 driving beams in the grille. Pretty simple to mount with a piece of angle aluminum. I figured if they were going to be my primary lights on the front of the jeep, Id get the best quality. For other auxilary stuff like backup or side lights, Ill just go with something cheaper like ebay lights.
