    Jku Fog light wiring w/ EVO 1/4 bumper

    Okay, newbie question here regarding what to do with the fog light wiring harness once the new bumper is installed. I guess I'm looking for ideas or suggestions on how to still utilize this switch and harness. I do plan on getting a light bar eventually. Any help would be great. Hopefully this is in the correct forum.

    You can get a light bar and wire it into the fog switch. I plan to use the factory fogs and make some rock lights out of them

    I don't have these, but just saw in another thread. These come with a pigtail you can use with the factory wiring...

    It doesn't get much easier than plug n play. There are a few builds that have added fogs to the 1/4 pounder. You can also check out 10frank9's build thread if you prefer the square lights.

    The factory fog light switch will only work on low beams right? I'd assume if you want something brighter, you would want to be able to use it in conjunction with your high beams.

    Or if you have a programmer. Most of them have an option to have fogs with hi beams. My bully dog did. I wired them direct to switch but got a flicker. So I used the factory fog light switch but went through a relay to the fogs. Works great.
