I can't operate them in california hiwy's, they're only for off-road and I have to have the lens cover, they're too high to be legally "open"--



I have "Navigators" for all use, cause they're under the headlight level !!

What do you mean "what do you think of them", they're lights" ??

Have you checked out the warn remote lights? They are pretty freakin cool and you can get them cheaper then that and you dont even have to run wires into the cab for a switch!

Warn 3.5" Halogen Fog Lights

If you want something a little bigger
Warn 6.5" Halogen Lights

Closer to your original lights
Hella 500 Fog Lamps

I thought when I got them from JCWhitney, as KC slimlights 6" 100w/w windshield brackets, for $99 bucks--could be wrong, but

I don't see any reason for thinner ones you mention, these aren't in the visual way, don't touch the radio antenna and are very bright-

To make any difference, you'll have to judge for yourself-on your jeep !!



Good luck

JIMBO
