Where's the best place to mount...
 
...a second set of fog lights. I'm looking at the round, Hella 500 amber set. If anyone has advice, such as wiring, etc. it would be appreciated. Any pictures would be nice too.

Thanks, John

I personally like the bumper, especially for fogs. Keeps the beam as low as possible. Also, keep them towards the middle so you don't knock them around while wheeling. My .02.

yep. i've got a pair of KC's on my bumper. i'll be adding a second set to the bumper and probly some up on the window as well.

You can add a bumper hoop and mount a couple a little higher off the bumper. Or you could mount a second set off of the windshield hinges. They make brackets that you bolt on to add them there.

Don't rightly think I have ever seen 4 fogs on a bumper.

Doesn't leave a lot of room for a winch, does it?

i've got a bumper with a hoop so i've got two down low and then 2 will be mounted up higher.....two fogs up high and two spots down low. see avatar.

Yeah, I was hoping that's what you all were talking about. I made mention of that possibility in my previous post.

here's a quick photochop of what my jeep would look like with a pair of lights on the bumper and the hoop.

Sweet! I did the same, but my Olympic bumper bar is not a tall, my amber Delta lights (all from Quadratec) are closer to the bumper, and they are at a great angle, for those bad rainy nights when I need them....

For what it's worth, since you will be using fogs on the street you may want to check local laws and keep them on the bumper. 'Round here we can't run a light on the public roads if it sits above the level of the headlights.
I run clear off road lights mounted on the windshield that work well on logging roads, trails, etc at night and allow extra time to react to deer and moose.
