Im looking at buying these *LINK* and was wondering if il be needing anything elts?


HOW TO: Install foglamps on a WK Grand Cherokee

in picture 5 of that^ it shows the wire pluging into the back of the foglight, is that already in the jeep ( i havnt looked yet) also looking at the ebay kit, i presum that the switch is so i dont have to buy the new arm switch that would be attached to the stearing collom?

Re: Installing Fogs..

all you need is the foglamp housings, a 20 amp fuse, the foglamp relay and the interior switch for fogs. The wiring is clipped to the front frame rail. the dealer will need to activate theem via starscan or its equivelant. My dealer did this for free.

Will the Relay and switch that comes with the ebay fogs work?, or is OEM needed?

Nope, the mopar kit contains the same components regardless of WK year. edit, there are 2 different part numbers, but both kits include the multiswitch stalk.

Re: Installing Fogs..

I'm looking at adding the fog lights to my Jeep as well. I ran into www.rockauto.com last night and found everything needed there, dirt cheap. The switch is $40 (w/fog lights w/o auto headlights), the relay is $6. If you wanted to get the stock housings they have them (bulb and housing) for $12 per side. So for $70 plus a 20 amp fuse you can have fog lights.

FYI - they have a lot of other Jeep parts as well for really decent prices
