Jw Speaker 6145 Install

Just purchased these Jw Speaker 6145 fog lights . Going to install them in my 2012 Overland. The fender guards and inner fender well is held in by black plastic rivets. Do these break taking them out and should I plan on buying them before I install these lights?

You don't need to remove the rivets. Check out this thread;

2011-2013 Foglight upgrade Option


I did this install laying on my back on a concrete driveway and have a few observations;

First if you have Quadra Lift, lift your jeep up to Off Road 2 for maximum height and lock it in position. Remove the fronts wheels for clearance to work. You don't need to completely remove the fender liners just remove the lower 10mm bolt and the lower one half turn plastic retainer on each side. These can be found just to the rear of the OEM fogs and are the lowest attachment points for the front fender liner.

Hook and pull the lower front part of the fender liners back & out of the way w/a bungee cord. Now looking up to where the fogs mount, remove the three 7mm OEM hex screws and unclip the OEM electrical connector and pull the OEM fog lights out. On the passenger side if you have quadra lift the OEM compressor is somewhat in the way so you can't actually see the inboard hex screw and will have to remove it by feel. I used a 1/4" flex head rachet w/a 7mm deep socket to remove the OEM hex screws. Mounting the JW speaker fogs is pretty simple, they fall into place just like the OEM fogs with the same mounting lug alignment and screw holes.

After they were in I had to adjust both JW Speaker fogs upward as they were aimed to low out of the box. After remounting my front tires, & lowering to normal ride height, I left the lower front fender liner 10mm bolts and plastic retainers off so I could reached up behind the liners, in front of the tires, to adjust the fogs w/ a phillips screwdriver. A couple of turns clockwise brought them up to the correct height.



These guys will sell you the exact plug & play adaptor harness you need if you don't/can't solder yourself;

Good luck!

Re: Jw Speaker 6145 Install

Do you have to remove the Fog light surrounds?. Do the lights mount from the inside or from the front?

Re: Jw Speaker 6145 Install

If you do end up removing the rivets, DO NOT get them from the dealership. They are $5 each! Check out Harbor Freight. They have a set of 40 and the tool for $15 before the 20% off.

I told you there is 1 bolt and 1 half turn fastener and that it all you have to remove. I did not touch any of the rivets. It is a piece of cake.

I think I already said I figured it out. Thanks...There is a big half turn fastener towards the top (I think that is what it is) and the one you're talking about way down below.If you don't get down on the ground you will never see the bottom one. When you said there is a half turn fastener all I saw at first was the big one up top. I assume that is for getting access to the headlight...

The one on top you don't need to touch just the small one on bottom. Once you pull the wheel off you will see what I'm talking about. I think to fog light screws are 7mm and the bolt you need to pull out of the fender liner is a 10 mm. I was using a nut driver and it works way better than a ratchet with an extension.

Yep. It's all included with the lights I sold him. Not cutting or splicing necessary!
