Thanks.
Sorry for the late reply, but I ran it through the firewall where all the main wires run right in front of the driver side above the pedals. I had to cut the wires and then splice them back together when I got them through.

trennmaschine Not wireless - The lights are these -
Rugged Ridge 15207.70 - Rugged Ridge Hood Mount Off Road Lighting Kit for 07-12 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec
The switch is run through the firewall and mounted on the driver side pillar. The lights are run through the engine compartment in a wiring conduit.

Are those wireless control? If not, how did you run the wires for the switch (thru the fire wall)?

RedBones Those are nice lights but check your state laws about windsheld lights. In WV you will not pass inspection if you have any aftermarket lights above your driving headlights.

jkjeeper06 Those lights come with the kit for wiring so you are all set!

Windshield Lights

About to order these,

Lights, Long Range Clear Black 6" Round 100w KCH-233

Light Mounting Bracket Black Pair KCH-7316

Do I need to order any switches to operate them? If so what do I get? And is that all I will need?

Thanks
Shark
