Can't doit in a lotta states-

They have to be "COVERED" because any (exposed) lights above the headlights, are illegal unless you're commericial !

There's a lotta different logo covers-

Good luck

No, I took off my rock screens as well (windshield lights shown here are the older ones). But I do have yellow film on my fog and snow/rain driving lights. I personally think the yellow is fantastic driving in crappy conditions.

The only thing I have had to do with my 55 watt windshield lights is black out the inside edge of the lights to cut the glare when on. I have a good driving type beam so bounce off the hood is minimal.

I looked this up in the Oklahoma Motor Vehicle Code Specifically Chapter 12 - Article 2 -Section 12-217
It looks to me like it does not have to be fully covered, just turned off while on the highway in Oklahoma. Please don't take my word for it, check it out and see what you think.

Where do people mount the light switch? I have an empty switch on the dash under the temp controls. Is it possible to use one of them?

Pics?

Exclamation Check you Motor Vehicle Code for your State,,

I found the below in the Virginia Motor Vehicle Code:


� 46.2-1030. When lights to be lighted; number of lights to be lighted at any time; use of warning lights.

A. Every vehicle in operation on a highway in the Commonwealth shall display lighted headlights and illuminating devices as required by this article (i) from sunset to sunrise, (ii) during any other time when, because of rain, smoke, fog, snow, sleet, insufficient light, or other unfavorable atmospheric conditions, visibility is reduced to a degree whereby persons or vehicles on the highway are not clearly discernible at a distance of 500 feet, and (iii) whenever windshield wipers are in use as a result of fog, rain, sleet, or snow. The provisions of this subsection, however, shall not apply to instances when windshield wipers are used intermittently in misting rain, sleet, or snow.

B. Not more than four lights used to provide general illumination ahead of the vehicle, including at least two headlights and any other combination of fog lights or other auxiliary lights approved by the Superintendent, shall be lighted at any time. However, this limitation shall not preclude the display of warning lights authorized in �� 46.2-1020 through 46.2-1027, or other lights as may be authorized by the Superintendent.

C. Vehicles equipped with warning lights authorized in �� 46.2-1020 through 46.2-1027 shall display lighted warning lights as authorized in such sections at all times when responding to emergency calls, towing disabled vehicles, or constructing, repairing, and maintaining public highways or utilities on or along public highways, except that amber lights on vehicles designed with a ramp on wheels and a hydraulic lift with a capacity to haul or tow another vehicle, commonly referred to as "rollbacks," need not be lit while the vehicle is in motion unless it is actually towing a vehicle.

§ 46.2-1020. Other permissible lights.
Any motor vehicle may be equipped with fog lights, not more than two of which can be illuminated at any time, one or two auxiliary driving lights if so equipped by the manufacturer, two daytime running lights, two side lights of not more than six candlepower, an interior light or lights of not more than 15 candlepower each, and signal lights.
The provision of this section limiting interior lights to no more than 15 candlepower shall not apply to (i) alternating, blinking, or flashing colored emergency lights mounted inside law-enforcement motor vehicles which may otherwise legally be equipped with such colored emergency lights, or (ii) flashing shielded red or red and white lights, authorized under § 46.2-1024, mounted inside vehicles owned or used by (a) members of volunteer fire companies or volunteer rescue squads, (b) professional fire fighters, or (c) police chaplains. A vehicle equipped with lighting devices as authorized in this section shall be operated by a police chaplain only if he has successfully completed a course of training in the safe operation of a motor vehicle under emergency conditions and a certificate attesting to such successful completion, signed by the course instructor, is carried at all times in the vehicle when operated by the police chaplain to whom the certificate applies.

Unless such lighting device is both covered and unlit, no motor vehicle which is equipped with any lighting device other than lights required or permitted in this article, required or approved by the Superintendent, or required by the federal Department of Transportation shall be operated on any highway in the Commonwealth. Nothing in this section shall permit any vehicle, not otherwise authorized, to be equipped with colored emergency lights, whether blinking or steady-burning.

I went with the Rugged Ridge A-pillar switches.
Very easy to wire and leaves room for add-ons since there are places for 4 switches.

Looks like an aftermarket cage system, based on the white bar along his dash...

That's a good point, I bought mine from Amazon as I recall.
It was dark out when I posted that and I wanted to include a picture.

Here is a pic. of my setup showing how I routed the wires. Very easy setup and there is a cutout in the firewall just forward of there to run the wires through.
