Grounding wire for fog lights

How have you guys grounded your fog light wires on the Jeep? Just curious because I intend on hooking these up today

They should ground through whatever you are mounting them too.
Are you mounting them on something that doesn't conduct electricity?

That should work. Are you not mounting them on the bumper?
I'm still a bit confused. Most of the "fog" lights I've installed only have one wire. The grounding is handled by the mount itself.

i grounded my lights to the screw holding the plastic cover in front of the grill, i sanded down the metal and put the ground between the plastic cover and the screw.

I just grounded them to the screw holding the light on the bumper. Wasn't sure if it was a good idea because I didn't know if it would stay in place. I guess I'll find out...
