I'm not 100% what you mean by "firefighter" lights but you may encounter legal issues if you mean something like a LEO/emergency vehicle lightbar

The worst could happen if you add an unfused line directly to your battery, it shorts, and the jeep becomes the center of your next call. In general its not too bad. It depends on what kind of setup you are planning on using. I would recommend checking out Extreme tactical dynamics. I have installed a lot of their stuff for my department and their led setups are excellent. Remember : measure (check) twice, cut once.
