Extra driving lights and rear bumper

I added the smittybilt front tubular bumper with hoop and I want to add 2 driving lights to the front of it. I was looking at the KC HiLites 6" Apollo Driving Lamps and was wondering if anyone had them or have installed similar lights. Not sure if its something i'll be able to handle myself .... also if they are satisfied with them?

I was also looking to get the smittybilt rear tubular bumper with hitch to match the front. I don't think I plan on towing anything, if anything I might get the cargo carrier that goes to the hitch. Is there anything special I need to do to the jeep itself when/if I tow anything?

He has the Smittybilt tube bumper. If it's like my Rugged Ridge tube bumper it has built in light mounts.

Installing the lights is very easy. KC has easy to follow instructions and the JK as several ways to route wires through the firewall. When you remove the side panel of the dash you will notice a nickle sized opening that is filled with foam. You can pass the wires through there using a coat hanger.

Excelente. It's similar to the rugged ridge one but a bit more manly.

I have a pair of Hella 500FF's with upgrading independent wiring and 130W bulbs. They work very nicely. I just got off the road, 245 miles on nothing but back roads. They work amazingly well. The Hella 700FF's would probably work even better.
