external lights (lights on the bumper)

can not get the lights on the bumper to come on? does it work off the fog light switch? is there a fuse inside or outside?

If you have a newer TJ, where you turn the head lights on with a dial on the turn signal stalk, you pull out on the part you turn to turn the head lights on to turn on the fog lights.

The factory fog lights turn on by pulling the end cap on the handle where you turn on your headlights literally pull the end area straight out

Thanks All....Do most people replace the factory lights or only when they replace the bumper? I don't like how they are so close to the tow hooks, I know the first time i'm stuck and get pulled out using a tow hook my light will get swiped off.

I replaced my factory lights when I changed out bumpers. The wiring is real easy. I just tapped into the low beam power and ran a hot to the battery, and a line to the rocker switch inside. You can get after market switches that fit perfectly into the factor bezel. Here are a few picks....

I just ordered a new light bar and a new set of fog lights.. I am a complete rookie when it comes to wiring. I am trying to wire them into the daystar vent switch. how do you wire the fog lights to a switch and how do you wire them to work?

Mine didnt come with factory fogs, but thinking of getting them. Is there is a plug stashed away that I need to tap into, or is that part of the wiring harness when I wire it up?

If you have a tj then there should be a plug under each fender where the blinkers are

I really like your set up. What suspension mods have you made? Great choice with the bumper and winch!

I have some factory fogs that I just took off because they're getting replaced. They work great and plug right in so no wiring ill sell then to you for 20$ plus shipping. The right one has a crack in the glass all the way across but its still strong.

the switch on the column tends to go bad. That's what happened to mine. everything else was fine.

I think it's actually pretty common.
