man, i thought this thread was dead.

flatline cowboy: you went all out! looks good. did you cut holes in the rear bumper to mount the lights. its kinda hard to tell from the pics?

johncub: that sucks. i hope i wont have that problem. i think the fuse or switch will go before the fuse box.

yeah, I cut 4 rectangular holes out in the rear bumper. I forget the exact measurements.. but it took about an hour to do all 4 with a 4" angle grinder and a flat file.

I just got the idea a few weeks ago before I fell asleep....

the outter pair come on with the transmission in reverse ( I removed the stock bulbs) and it works great.

the inner pair are on a toggle switch as are the 4 in the front.

I am working on mounting the oem fogs under the jeep for rock lights.

thanks for checkin them out!

actually very simple

just find your wiring harness for the tail lights ( mine was on the drivers side, above the rear wheel well. ) tap into the purple/black wire and run it to your relay. then just feed a power wire in from the battery to the relay, ground it and run a wire to the lights.

I had to run a few more wires as I have 2 circuits back there ( one relay per pair )

all in all I believe I spent $125 on parts/lights and some more $$ for the KC light mounts ( should have made them too )

but I love knowing I pieced it all together and it works great...


BUILT NOT BOUGHT


I will post more pics up soon!
