Fog Lights

My 06 WK doesn't have fog lamps and in looking for factory systems, a couple places say "comes with automatic headlights." Does this mean automatic as in on at dusk and off at dawn or syncd with wipers? Just curious, 'cause auto on and off would be great!

I think you're talking about the smartbeam headlights. Smartbeam is just Jeep's name for automatic headlights, but they do have a couple of twists to them. You can set the lights to go on with the wipers (or not...your choice), the fogs do go on and off with the headlights (if you have the foglight switch turned on), and if you enable it, the headlights will switch automatically between low beam, high beam, and multiple levels inbetween depending on ambient light conditions. It works well...from the driver's seat, all I notice is very good, consistent lighting regardless of whether there is oncoming traffic, street lights, or no other lights around at all.

But....I don't think that the smartbeam setup can be retrofitted. There are a few sensors on the rear view mirror, attached to the windshield by the rear view mirror, and on the top of the dash (not sure what each one does, but one or two of them have to be associated with smartbeam), and those would probably be REALLY expensive to add on. I'm hoping that my windshield never needs to be replaced, because with those sensors on there, that has to be an astronomically priced windshield!
