I know there are a bunch of threads scattered around, but let's get an official off-road lights thread going to help people decide what kind of lights they want for their Jeep.
Please post pictures of your light set-up if you have them. List what make/model of lights you have, size and what function they perform [spot light, fog light, flood/driving light, back-up, rock etc].
If you're looking for foglights/driving lights for when driving on the road, you can get cheap lights from any auto parts store. If you're looking for off-road foglights, quadratec.com 4wd.com and numerous other places sell them.
I just installed two 3.5" warn remote controlled fog lights on my windshield, n love them... I point them off to the side a bit on trails n it makes a world of difference... I plan on adding two warn 6.5" spot lights to the front bumper as well... So far, ide highly reccomend this brand...
my dad has the long range slims on his jeep no problems.
I'll have to get a pick of my old light set up. 2 kc 130w driving, 2 kc 130w long range and a pair of cheapo 55w floods on a over windshield light bar and the factory fogs and a pair of cheapo 100w long range on the bumper.
What have we got?
We have one heavily armed Recreational Vehicle
I mounted kc light on the windshield and only have one complaint. BUGS BUGS BUGS Everytime I turn them on I could see a mile ahead but every bug for five miles makes a suicide dive for my windshield. (Note my wife loves the look of the lights)
Here you go, Hella 500 FF, OTRATTW switches inside. As I said, I will be converting these to HID using a DDM Tuning kit:
I gotta ask where did you get those switches and how did you mount those in there like that? Do the dummy plugs just come out or what? I have a 99 with three of them and I am gonna get some lights and I would love to run switches like that

Be sure you get the ones that say they are ok for our years TJ. There are some that have a blinding light that would be pointed right at you with the angle they mount at on the TJ.
Yes, the dummy plugs come right out. And if your TJ did not come with factory fog lights, then one of the dummy plugs will have a factory harness there plugged into nothing that was originally meant for fog lights. You can tap into a few on those wires for your ground and the dash light. I still tapped into a line direct on the battery for the main power to the relay.
And by the way, I did complete the incredibly easy HID conversion of those Hella 500 FFs, and I gotta say that they are incredibly bright. They really light up the night for sure. I will be going out to the dunes in a week and a half, so I will get some shots for you.
