Re: Light for WK under the hood.

Yeah sounds like a plan, I did this with a set of fog lights on my mazda6 a few years ago and never had any issues. I believe the fuse was 20a but i could be wrong. It was red.

So yeah.. Battery > Fuse > Switch > Light > Ground

That way you can't burn your light or switch out

Re: Light for WK under the hood.

If you want something idiot proof, you could buy the official Jeep under-hood light. Has instructions for mounting on your WK, including how to wire it up.

Hmmm, that light does look useful but the price is INSANE. I was going to head to the junk yard and pocket the parts I need and use some wire i already have. So total cost of what im thinking will just be for a fuse holder I will prob have to purchase.

Re: Light for WK under the hood.

Just curious, why do want light under the hood at night?

If it's something quick or an in case of emergencies situation, just use a flashlight (keep one in the glovebox).

If you're looking to work on it at night, just get a hanging (or standing) halogen work lamp.

Unless there is a good reason, I just don't see why someone would take on the hassle. Chances are it's not going to be that bright anyways. At least compared to a true halogen.

I decided to go with the Mopar light, as pricey as it was. The light is removeable and the cord extends 30'. Installation was easy, but there are a few helpful tips that I posted here: http://www.wkjeeps.com/hoodlamp.htm
