JerryJeepster I'm installing fogs in my ace rear bump. I will use factory fogs and need a wire harness to hook them directly to the reverse lights. Anyone have a harness they're not using? Or know where I can get one without having to purchase the full kit with the light/blinker stem? They want $125 for the entire kit. Is this average pricing?

yeah thats kinda what i thought, which is why i ultimately got the kit with a new harness relay and switch

JGreen06TJ I installed the multi-function switch for my 06X that had the wiring harness but did not have a switch. MANY on here recommended wiring a separate toggle switch but I preferred the column mounted multi-function switch. Don't forget the relay in the fuxe box in the engine compartment. Without adding the relay the fogs still won't work.

thanks

(ps, i bought the rugged ridge lightbar kit with the bar 3 lights and the harness and switch...is it possible to run those fogs to this switch or no?

yeah i opted to go with the kc kit...that comes with a new harness relay and switch...it was only 15.00 more expensive then the lights themselves thanks tho

Here's a link to them KC HiLiTES 152 - KC HiLites 6" Apollo Pro Series 100 Watt Fog Lamp System with Stone Guards in Black - Quadratec

and those some with the proper mounting for the factory bumper spot?

TCogley i was thinking about just doing the kc 1133's in the factory spot, but i guess ill just wait until i get the car back from the dealer to order those! thanks guys

WVU Mountainman I installed KC daylighter 130 watt. Came with a harness. Super easy to install and I hate Electrical stuff. Very bright, I love em

AFJeep Bought a 06 TJ X several years ago. Put fog lights on. I did find the harness along the inside edge of the fenders behind the turn signals. I bought a used multi-function light switch from Davey's Jeep, which is how you turn on the Fog lights if factory installed. Also had to purchase the fog light relay. Then I bought a new PIAA Fog light kit (they look so much better than stock) for my Jeep. A complete harness came in the kit, but I didn't use it. I also installed factory Cruise Control, 06 Sport wheel/tires and the premium sound system. A work in progress.

Some that did not come equipped with the factory fog lighs do have the wiring harness to the bumper.

This is not true on my 03 Sahara. I have the factory fog lights and can run them with just the running lights on.

what about a switch...does the factory headlight switch control the fogs? or do i need a switch now that has a fog feature?

Bumper Driving/Fog Lights Question?

I just recently bought a 2006 Wrangler. If you see my previous posts youll see that its still at the dealer since they left a wheel loose, so they are replacing the rim and 2 new tires. My car DOESN'T have the fog/driving lights mounted on the bumper. I am new to Jeep's I was wondering if all Jeeps come with the harness for those lights even if they aren't on the car...can I just buy replacement Fog/Driving lights and will I have the harness there or will i need to get a harness as well, any help would be awesome, thanks guys!

Todd
