Bumper and lighting
 
So I just got a Black Ops JKU and I've been looking at a tube Body Armor 4x4 front bumper I'm thinking of putting KC lights on the bumper in place of the ones in the picture. I'm really new to the off-road lights I wanted them on my dakota but never got around to it. If anyone has any suggestions or tips it would be great! I've installed HID's on my truck but that's really in with lighting, so anything would be appreciated!

You can put any lights you want on that bumper, in just about any configuration. Most companies that sell lights will sell mounting rings to fit the diameter of that bull bar. And any modern lights you buy will come with a built-in relay, so it's simply a matter of routing the wires into the engine bay, hooking em to the battery and ground, and running the switch into the cab.

Here's some info on routes through the firewall into the cab: Routing wires through firewall 08

I'm your basic electrical retard, so I installed an sPOD in my Jeep, which acts as a relay station for all my aux lights (3 sets, when I'm done, plus OBA). It's a really clean, professional looking setup. Only downside is, it's expensive, and really only worth it if you're planning to run multiple aux electronics. Some links:

Gen II SPOD
2012 Electrical question
4x4 SPOD Since 2005 - The ORIGINAL JEEP Over The Windshield Switch Console - Jeep Power Distribution System

Rather than the sPOD, a lot of folks simply buy a switch plate, such as the ones sold by Quadratec that fit in the Jeep's A-pillar. Or you can just hook up each individual switch to your dash somewhere.

Tons of options, and lots of threads on how to do it if you use the Advanced Search field...

I'll definitely take a look. Thanks for the help!
