How to mount jw speaker fog lamps in 2013 rubicon

Jw speaker just released their new LED fog lamps in Sept 2013. Unfortunately they are plug and play with 2007-2012 but in my 2013, photos attached, it has a different mounting bracket. I have a 2013 10th anniversary rubicon. Does anyone know if there is a third party bracket that will let me mount this LED fog lamp without having to do something custom? Does anyone have any ideas on how to do this if I do have to go from scratch?

Has anyone figured this out? I have the 6145's and am in the same predicament. Would the 6045's work as a better alternative?

I returned the 6145's and installed the 6045's which work with the brackets.

That would have been some good information to have with the 6045 prior to ordering and modifying the 6145s. I had to go with custom brackets to get them installed. Also this issue is only specific to the 10A or Rubicon X bumper, as this bumper only uses a different mounting system then the rest of the JK line.

Can you please share what size halo ring you installed? I'm building my Halo's al-la-cart/ from scratch instead of using a pre-made kit like Oracle etc... Thanks.

Re the Halo's. I ordered the kit from Oracle lighting. Advanced Automotive Concepts- AACstyle.com I ordered the kit for a 2013 JK I dont recall measuring the halo diam but I'm sure if you call them they can tell you that info. Btw, i used their color shifting kit which I highly recommend. You can change the color on the fly to almost anything and add effects such as strobing. The cost of the entire kit was a lot less than it would have cost me to whip one up from scratch, and there was no time involved. The harder part was removing the lenses from the JW Speaker head and fog lamps, which is very dooable, but tricky the first time around. There are no brackets available for the 6145 and the 10A bumper. Get the 6045s or take it to fabricator for custom brackets. Ultimately, I did the latter because I had already converted the fog lamps prior to realizing there was a bracket issue.

Maximus 3 has brackets available to mount the 6145 in the 10A/X bumper

What's up?

I got a 2013 10A JKU, got JWS headlights and fog lights(6146) that don't fit. Did 6045 install easily with no additional brackets or mods? Did you have hard time aligning bolts while putting a bumper together

Thnks
