Need help on LED light bar with Amber LED's

Hello all,

I work overseas (so need help since I can't measure my Jeep at home in the States) but when I am home, it is in Utah. Where I live gets quite a lot of heavy fog in the winters. I have HID's in my fog lamps now and love it for driving around and such but don't want to commit the factory fogs to Amber HID's. I am toying with the idea of installing a light bar below the grill between the tow hooks. With the factory tow hooks installed, what is the widest light bar that will fit?

I have looked at Rigid's site (really expensive) and also SuperBrightLED's.

Rigid's site is a pain to search. What I want is a bar with Amber LED's (not a film on it, I want it to look normal when not in use)

I think a single row of LED's will fit that area better and look better but am open to options of a 2nd row if the output is that noticeable.

I am a noob when it comes to these light bars. What are good brands and ones to stay away from. Are the ebay knock offs that bad? I am fine paying more for a product if the quality is heads and tails above.

Just wondering what experiences others have had and what recommendations I can get.

I won't say anything about the HID's in the fog lights I will say though i'm glad you didn't use some color temp that was too ricey.

I can't say anything about the width between the tow hooks... (I don't have them or shackles yet). I found this image on JF. It's a 20" according to the owner (anon155).


Another forum I frequent is HIDplanet.com.
One user makes & sells his own mini light bars that are pretty bright: LINK HERE
Another member is often promoting what I assume is his business: LINK HERE

The second one has light bars in the light bar section as well as videos showing the operation of them. I was planning to mount one in the same location that you have in mind and was looking at THIS ONE. It's 24" wide so I will measure before purchasing but at $150 its not a bad deal. It is white but has 2 yellow warning sections on it. I'm not sure if you'll find one that is dedicated yellow without the use of amber covers.


Doesn't seem to me like I helped much... but hopefully I did!!
