Upgraded LED Lighting - Fog & Driving

Hello I'm been reviewing the Jeep Forum for some time now since buying my 2012 Unlimited Sahara JK and have done a few smaller upgrades but am now moving into all lighting upgrades and I had a few follow up questions.

I've already bought smoked front LED Turn signals replacements from Go Recon & the smoked LED Side marker lights.

I got the 3rd brake light in black from IPCW & planning to get IPCW LEDT-420CB Bermuda Black LED Tail Lamps next.

My next few things are going to be the J.W. Speaker 8700 Evolution LED head lights. A pair of Dually D2 white driving for the lower windshield. A pair of Dually D2 Wide that will be replacing the factory fog lights using the Poison Spider custom mounts.

And lastly one 20 inch LED E-Series Light Bar from Rigid Industries right below the grill.

Here is my questions I can't seem to find a switch unit that can control all them all. Is it correct to think the Dually D2 wides that will replace the factory fog lights will still be able to use the factory switch power them on and off ? The D2 Driving and the 20inch Light Bar will need switches to turn them off and on I'm guessing so what do people suggest that would fit my JK?

Also what keeps people from just un-screwing the Dually D2 or the LED bar is it possible to lock them or keep them more secure in general ?

Thanks in advance for any advice or links

If you're going to add that many individual lighting sources, get an SPOD.

Expensive, yes...but it is extremely nice quality, and makes installation of electrical add ons a breeze!

There have been reports of problems using the factory fog light wiring to run LED lights.

Also, please keep in mind, the D2 Wide that you want to replace your stock fog lights will not be able to be on in everyday traffic.
WAY TOO BRIGHT, and a largely unfocused beam.
Offroad, great. On road around other cars, blinding.

Thanks! That looks exactly like what I'm going to need for everything.

If you go the SPOD route, get it with the hole to fit the Aeroforce Interceptor Gauge.
The gauge has a lot of very nice features!

Feel free to PM me if you've got any questions concerning either.

I saw that as one of the options so this one?

What exactly does that show me having that option ? like what's the benefit ?

Thanks !

That's the one for an air gauge.

This is the one for the Aeroforce Gauge.

If you ever plan to add an ARB Compressor, yes. Absolutely! With the ARB harness from SPOD, you do away with over half of the original ARB harness(which you'll only use if running ARB Air Lockers).

I have this kit with the ARB Harness, and it makes for a very clean install!

Thanks for stating that; it needs to be emphasized for safety sake.

I saw where Rebel Offroad was offering an "LED Fog Light Upgrade for 2007-2013 Jeep JK (pair)". Does anyone know if this would be a safe LED alternative to the OEM halogen bulbs? Also being they are a direct replacement, could there be any pcm/ecu, voltage draw problems in using the OEM Foglight Switch? I think I would really like this lamp if it's a no hassle upgrade!

Rebel Offroad does a pretty good job with their lights. I bought their Hellfire HID digital kit from them a year or more ago and haven't had the first issue with it at all.
