Why not powder coat them for durability?

that's all for this week..... logistics...Canada Postal service is one guy on a donkey with a maple syrup cart....sigh

luckily jeep parts from U.S.A only sit at border customs longer than most criminals serving prison time for manslaughter.

And the taxes on each item is just a few million dollars

How did you wire these? How difficult? Thinking about adding them to my JLUR and already have the grille guard.
dead simple to wire. harness on one end and a positive and ground k the other. hooked up to the auxiliary switches on the dash. be sure to program the switch to be latching from the uconnect menu

I'm waiting for my brackets to show up to mount the lights. Which Aux button did you use to hook them up to?

Thanks. Don’t have anything hooked up to the aux switches yet. Is #1 good with the 7” lights or do you need a different button. Lights are enroute too so no directions to look at yet.
