Fog Lights?

I would like to mount some fog lights on my '03 Wrangler. It did not come with the fog lights so I guess I need the wiring harness, etc. Does anyone know of where I may purchase the whole assembly and is it a simple process that even I (being not too mechanical) could do? Thanks, Jim.

Any decent set of off-road lights should come with a harness for wiring them up.

IPF, Hella, Eagle Eye, KC are just a few brands. Try looking over at Quadratec as they might have some specials going, or even 4WD.com .

Hella 500's, kit, from www.quadratec.com, just outside philly if you want to take a ride up, they are more of a warehouse though, you can order over the phone and then pick up at the counter. They are not open on weekends. Another good source is www.rallylights.com. They have a nice headlight auxiliary harness that can be plugged in to increase voltage to the headlights, advantage is that it uses one of your stock headlight sockets to operate it, leaves the other socket unused which you can then plug the signal side of the fog light relay into so you can have the lowbeam on high beam off. You can then use the high beam side of the unused socket to control a set of driving lights that will go on with the high beams and off with the low beams.

I'm pretty sure quadratec carries the OEM light in singles, don't have a catalog handy to check but I remember them being in there.

Quadratec also has the 55watt KC fogs that are a direct OEM replacement. Thats what I bought when the crappy hella 500s from my rubi cracked at the plastic hinge. KCs are all metal.

sidebar: anyone know of a way to make IPF headlights more.. FRIENDLY.. in fog and snow? Mine are so bright, they dont even give my fogs a chance to do anything (either hella or KC) and blind the crap outa me in the snow. Im thinking something along the lines of like a yellow cover, kinda like the black ones. Maybe ill just buy some yellow H4 bulbs for the snow.

How did you adjust those IPF's, they should have the same horizontal cutoffs that the E codes have, literally draws a straight line across a wall then zips up to the left.
When I do them on my jeeps, either the Hella E's on the XJ or the cibie's on the TJs I use a wall in a flat parking lot. Measure from the ground to the center bar on the bulbs then transfer that measurement to the wall twice about 20 ft apart, then shoot a chalk line. I adjust the lights on low beam to put that horizontal cutoff about 2" below the chalk line then test it out on a couple of cars to make sure I'm not shining above their trunks too much.
Then aim the fogs under them about halfway between the ground and the line.
If they don't have that horizontal E code cutoff I don't know what to say. Got any pics of the lights on low beam up against a wall from say 20 feet back ?
