JWS Fogs

I am looking a purchasing some JWS fogs for my 07. Will I need a anti-flicker harness?

I almost bought these but ended up going another route. I am 95% sure they are plug n play with the factory fog harness/outlet. If I recall correctly, the trucklites are similar but do require a harness.

i have been looking at those as well. as i understand, the JWS are one if not the brightest on LEDs on the market, so what influenced your decision? my priorities, start with quality, then price, but price is a definite factor.

Very nice looking jeep btw!!

I have rigid driving lights on my windshield a-pillars and they are great. I did floods down in the bumper. They are more than enough lite then I have ever needed.

Price was one influencer, putting $350-400 fogs on my bumper that I will use a few times a year versus $200 for the rigids.

Second was quality. I looked at the JW's at northridge and they seemed solid, but the rigids that I have have been through car washes, hit by limbs and branches etc, all without a hitch. So there was not a doubt at all with quality.

Either way you won't go wrong. I would say if you use your fogs more than 2-3 times a year go with JW, if you only use your fogs when you are offroad at night like I do, go with rigids...that's how I looked at it.

'07 is when they switched to the CANBUS system if I recall correctly. If you wire the lights through a relay you should be ok. If not you may have some flickering.

We don't have JWS but they are a great product. I really like the look of the square lights in the round holes so the Rigid Duallys and Rigid Fog Light Brackets. Let me know if you're interested in a quote on that system!

I had Rigid dually D2's driving pattern in my bumper, great output. Two issues I had with them were, wired to factory fog wiring they had a quick on and off pulse to them all the time, they alternated like strobe lights, even when fog switch or all lights were off. They eventually stopped when the Jeep was shut off for a few minutes. I found the D2's too bright as normal driving/ fog lights so I switched to the JW Speaker fogs. They have good output and match the light color of my Trucklite headlights. Wired directly to my factory fog wiring with no issues or special harnesses.

I have my JWS fogs wired directly into the stock fog wiring on the stock fog switch. They do NOT flicker. (For what its worth, another guy in our club has the exact same situation as I, no flicker there either in his '11)

On a 2007 Wrangler, you shouldn't need the anti-flicker module. The fog lights weren't connected to the CanBUS system.

Let us know how they work out. I am considering the same lights.

Correct.Plug and play for 07-09. Had them on my 09, plugged right in, no additional wiring. They worked great, no flicker!

Have them in a 14 and there is no flicker. Love the sharp cut off of the fogs. They are pricey but worth it in my opinion. I agree, they aren't as bright as other LED's I have seen, but their light pattern is wide and low. They aren't plug and play on the 2014. Still have to cut the plug off and splice but no big deal.

Think mine were $350 through Northridge with their 10% sale. Just my 2 cents
