Forgot I asked this question till I sat down and found I'd written the colors out. As nobody responded, either A: Nobody cares, or B: Nobody knows. I'll assume B, just for fun. So, if anyone is actually interested to know, here is what I found:
For the ARB Bull Bar, the signal lights are both brown and blue from the light housing. To connect these lights to your actual turn signal as they were intended, you need to unwrap and locate your turn signal wires on the Jeep. On the PASSENGER side, the BROWN ARB wire will connect to the WHITE/BROWN Jeep signal wire. The BLUE ARB wire then connects to the BLACK Jeep wire-ground. For the DRIVER side, the BROWN ARB wire will connect to the WHITE/GREEN Jeep wire, and again, the BLUE ARB wire will connect to the BLACK Jeep wire.
IPF 900 XSD grill lights-running all the relays and various ground wires, fuses and switch was pretty easy, strait forward-just took time routing everything as "clean" as possible. The highbeam wire is what I tapped into for the main power source, so that when I pull on my brights, the grill lights come on as well. The switch will then enable/disable the lights with the high beams on. I don't recall the color of the wire, but if standing in front of the DRIVER side headlight, looking down, there are 3 terminals off the back of the headlight. One on the left, a middle one which is offset higher than the others, and one on the right-in the same plane as the one on the left. The highbeam wire is the one on the far LEFT. I tapped into that, and everything works great.
The ARB compressor-locating these wires was a real pain in the butt. Dealer was of course no help, so after roughly an hour of testing wires-and fingers, I figured I'd write this down to help anyone else out that may end up doing the same thing to their rig, and hopefully save them the hassle that I went through. So, after routing all the wires, hooking up the relay and installing the switch, you'll need to tap into both the "ignition wire, and dash illumination wire", in order to make the switch fully functional, and light up when you turn your lights on-along with the rest of the dash lights. So, the DASH ILLUMINATION wire is located down on the left side by your left foot, in a relatively smaller bundle of wiring-about 3/4" in diameter or so. You want the ORANGE/BROWN wire. Be careful-you'll want to test this wire first with your dash lights-there are actually two of these orange/brown wires in there, and I'm not exactly sure what the second one goes too. I tested both of them, one is the correct dash illumination, the second-I have no idea what it does. So again, once you locate the ORANGE/BROWN wire-test it to be sure.
The second wire you need is the IGNITION wire. This is in a very large bundle of wires up off the steering column, running over towards the passenger side, then down. It too contains an orange/brown wire, but again, not the correct dash illumination wire. Anyway, the IGNITION wire you want is roughly a 12 guage ORANGE/PINK wire-mine was about in the center of the bundle, and kind of a pain to separate from the others. Again, I'd recommend testing just to be positive you've got the right one before hooking everything up.
Again, I spent far too long wasting time testing wires and my fingers are still sore from poking them as well. Just thought somebody might be interested, and hopefully this will help save some time/headache-and maybe sore fingers as well from trying to locate these two wires. I don't yet have a FSM, so I did try checking with the dealer first. They did give me two wires to look for, but neither were the right color, or the right location. I don't know what years or when colors would have changed, so I don't know what other vehicles this will work on. My rig is a 2005 Unlimited Rubicon, so I'd guess they are at least the same for other Unlimiteds/Rubicons-not sure about others.
Hope this helps somebody at least,
Best of Luck,
