    Turns out that the fogs might only be an issue with fogs that come off a steel bumper. I've been told that the plastic bumpers all have the same fogs regardless if they're LED or not. Either way, I got it to work so it's all good.

    Very interesting. Wonder what LOD will come up with to make them work with their bumper if coming off a steel bumper

    Not having to relocate the sway bar motor and vacuum pump makes for an easy install... Looks really good!

    Fortunately, we were still able to make it work and with LED bulbs, you can't even tell.



    Their Sport didn't come with the LED group and so they assumed all the fog lights would be mounted the same. The JL is new and we're all figuring it out as we go.
    I would say I had the same problem before with my JKU Rubicon HR. It seems there are 2 different light mounts Jeep uses as those seem to be identical to my JKUHR with the Upgraded Bummper. I would see if you can find the mount brackets for the sport and your lights may fit into the pods...

    Does anyone know if the LOD Destroyer for the JK fits the JL... It seems very close to the same mounting and everything and would be nice when I change my jeep to the JL if I can just swap my LOD stuff from my JK... It would definitely make the switch a little less expensive....

    As said earlier, it’s similar but not the same.

    More than likely, they just need to make a new bracket that will allow for the 2 bolt mounting of the steel bumper lights.

    Yup, sure was easier than I was even expecting.

    The fog lights I used are the same as what comes on a standard plastic bumper. They worked fine for me.

    What OverlanderJK said, similar and you might be able to get it to work but it's not the same.

    Looks great, and a great step by step video. Any reason for not going with the Power plant like your other 2 JKs?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
