I have been looking for reviews of these lights...does anyone have any experience with them?

Amazon.com: WARN 82415 W2030F Fog Beam: Automotive

Thanks in advance.

You'll most likely not find someone with those exact lights, but I have a question for you: why add another pair of fog lights in addition to the stock ones in the bumper? The supporters of fog lights in adverse conditions have drastically dropped in the past two decades or so — with a proper set of headlights, fogs shouldn't be needed at all unless you really need extra foreground illumination at slower speeds. If you're looking for some extra light down the road or along the side for deer/wildlife, I'd suggest a "driving" pattern light instead of a fog: http://danielsternlighting.com/tech/...fog_lamps.html

Get a single Rigid Dually in the rear in the flood pattern or with th 60* diffuser. I am going to go this route as soon as my Desert Snake Offroad light bracket comes.

I have the Desert Snake Rotopax carrier and they are sending me a light bracket, powdercoated, to mount a light. Sort of like this one. The entire system is mounted in the stock tire carrier area.

$150! go to tractor supply and pick up a pair of flood lights for $40. Or go to autozone or someplace like that and get a pair of those $25 fog lights. I mounted them to the bumper and to an extra switch I installed and its the best $25 I think I've spent on the jeep.
