Exclamation WHERE SHOULD i PUT MY LIGHTS?

Hey everybody, I want to deck out my jk 4 door in fog, long range, and flood lights. I have no Idea to put which lights where! I want to have lights on my roof like you see when off roading but I know you shouldn't put fog lights on top because they will just show the particles in the air. Any advice would be great!

I would go with that, or upgrade factory fog, then long range or what ever on bumper, wind shield, and roof.

Yep, keep your fogs low. Not only will they light up the flying debris, they'll light up your hood, and cause your eyes to react to the brightness, making it harder to see.
Have you picked out just exactly which lights you're going to use?
Welcome to the forum, btw

I'm surprised noone has said it yet. The best place for your lights is on my jeep.
Oh and welcome

These lights are actually mounted behind the grill, it is very easy to do. I originally had my lights mounted this way but had to relocate them because of the winch. As for roof lights, they are not my cup of tea. I like going to Quadtratec and 4WD.com to see various pics and get my ideas. Good luck its more addictive then you think.
