Please help guys!

Is there anyway to turn the KC daytime running lamps located on my hood on and off without having a separate switch? I know you can hook it to the normal lights but what do I do if I want the kc's off and the regular lights on. Also do you know any dealer that would put parts on my jeep?

You would really only need a separate switch. And for the parts probably any customs garage would put them on for you.

You can run a killswitch from the KCs before it hits your headlight circuit. That way if the killswitch is closed then it'll turn on/off with your headlights, and you have the option to kill the KCs if you want to.

Another option would be to have the KCs come on only when the high beams are turned on.

I like the switch idea now that I think of it. Would I need just the switches and run the kc's straight to the switches or some sort of separate box that would run the kc's to the switch

It all depends on how fancy you want to get.

Personally, I would install a new fuse box under the hood which links directly to the battery. From there you can run a line to the lights then back to the switch in your dash and ground the far side of the switch. Alternatively, you can install the switch between the fuse box and the light and ground the far side of the light.

Just do yourself a favor and run the wires cleanly and label the wires. The next owner will love you for it. I have to yank out the wiring for the lights my PO ran. I couldn't figure out how he ran the wires.
