I like those!

I'm not sure how we could replicate it on the Jeep WK and make it look good though.

But for a starting point, OMELET has done something like that with 2 small amber fog lights in his grill, looks amazing. It should be in his build thread.

I'd like to see more variants of the lighting like the ford rapter amber lights behind the grill on our jeeps.

Honestly, the raptor isn't all that great. I recently drove a 2012 raptor and wasn't impressed. My XK is faster off the line, and is a more comfortable ride all around. It did have a few cool features, but I'd still prefer my XK.

I like the amber markers on the Raptor! I have thought about replicating it, but good looking small amber lights are difficult to find. They have the 3 in the grill and 1 on each side. Technically they have them because the truck is so wide they legally need them, but they look sweet. I am adding amber Rigid SRM2s inside my headlamps and have thought about replacing the 2 amber D2s in the grill with 3 SRMs to get the same look. Just not sure it would look right. The WK front end is not that wide.

As for the lights on the roof, personally I think they would look ok on a XK but not so much on a WK.

this thread is making me think about integrating some LED strips into my roof rack pillars - or maybe run along the underside of the cross-members.....

I own a WK and an XK (wife's), I LOVE them both. But as a homeowner, im going to need a pickup... and the Raptor is the coolest lookin IMO.
