Screwing them into the wiper cowl is pretty janky. The wiring is pretty straightforward though, just like wiring up any light. Power and ground from the battery, run a wire through the firewall for the switch, the power from the interior to light the switch.
Seconded!
That looks atrocious!

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

those looks very out of place, just being honest.

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

also not a fan, and honestly even out here in some of the darkest nights in the US i'd still do something to either hide them as permanent mounts, or what I intend to do which is a blug in / removable magnet mounted bar for the roof. I rarely would need to flip them on in an instant rather than being able to pull over and put the bar up top - and the advantage is it's not another item for wind resistance or to attract thieves

fwiw, i've used a wireless relay in the past on my old WJ when I put rigid D2's in the bumper - uses a handheld fob-style switch rather than having to run wires in/out of the cab for a hard mounted switch. for those looking for a quick install, or another option, consider a wireless relay

That's a super dope setup!

I think I'll parrot basically what everyone else has been saying in that having them on the hood like that is definitely not the best setup. Most people I've seen have mounted some sort of slim bar, or pods into their grill.

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

I went for the discreet look. Pulling off the front is not as scary as it seems. There is a Youtube video to show how it's done. Here is my finished look:

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

I put mine where the factory fogs used to be.

That's super nice! What sort of mounts/housings did you use for them?

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

This is where I mounted my spot lights. The roof basket had a quick disconnect plug for ready removal.




Switch in the center console storage compartment.


LED bar in the front bumper.

Re: LED pods - yes or no?

I for one seem to like the look and placement of the lights that VMX12R installed. I have the brackets already, just searching for the right spot lights for my taste.

Mounted mine to the front bumper. Just had to remove the front fascia. No drilling required.
