be forewarned, that if you go offroading, foglights can get damaged when the wheels flex and the tire backs into the front bumper.

pretty much because of its placement, and how far it goes back behind the bumper. another option would be to install smaller fogs closer to the center

Slightly off topic, has anyone tried mounting fog lights to the roof as off road lights? Do fog lights put out enough lights for that to be worth the effort?

I'm asking because I want off road lights, but I I'm trying to keep my WJ a great daily driver, so the slimmer rectangular fog lights would have less wind resistance.

Another idea would be to mount them behind the grill. I've seen that done on some older Cherokees.

I built and mounted a light bar on top with 4 small 55 watt halogens. The light output is great. I get no glare off the hood. And it looks nice. Mounted to the bumper of a wj looks like junk imo.

That really does look great. Do they wobble at all or stay good and tight? How much was everything? I was thinking of this last night and was wondering if I was the first genius/******* to want to do this.
