Question IPF light install instructions

I am about to install two lights on the windshield of my 2004 Wrangler and I was wondering if there are some online instructions for it because I am confused of how to do the wiring. I am also putting two lights on on light bar that is already on the front bumper that is made by Bestop. If there are instructions for those I would appreciate that too.

Can't help you with instructions, but the wiring isn't too difficult once you get the hang of it...the big thing is just finding an easy route for it. You should power the lights through the use of a relay.

Wire one side of the relay coil to the + terminal on the battery, on the other side of the coil, go to one side of your switch, then go from the other side of the switch to a good ground. From there, run a separate thicker gauge wire from the + terminal on the battery to the common terminal on the relay, on the normally OPEN side of the relay, run a wire of the same thickness to the lights, wire the lights in parallel (thus giving them each power separately so if a bulb blows, you don't lose both lights) and route them a good ground.

Once you get the wiring understood, you'll find it's super easy...

For the windshield, did you run it through the front where the rubber part meets the bottom of the windshield? If so, does it leak at all?

I've never done it so I can't help you with that...I'd say just find a good spot to route your wiring where the install will look the cleanest and the wiring won't be damaged from daily use. If you run a search through the forums, you may find some posts describing where people who have these lights ran their wiring...I seem to recall a fairly recent post discussing that.
