Nice! Do you have daytime pictures, so we can see what they look like. Where did you mount the switch and route wiring.

I can take some. I just used a relay from the lights to the battery and then a switch through the firewall. The switch is mounted in the storage compartment where there USB ports are.

Wow! Those look great. Can you also post model/part numbers and where you bought them? I would like to do the same, and I too have the ACC on my limited. Appreciate it.

Here's an updated picture with the lights on during the day. (Sorry the app I used to block my plate distorts the image). As you can see I've covered all of the chrome except the fog bezels. You can also see the mirrors and hood with the badge delete. I'll grab a link to the LEDs and post them in just a sec

There ya go. Just hang them from the support that runs along the front. You will also need to buy the ~$17 harness with switch to run to the battery and through the firewall.

Performance wise, how well they work in the dark.

Looking AT them..they're very bright. From the drivers point of view they dont illuminate as much as I expected. I'm not sure if this is the light itself or the location.

Well, I don't know shit about lighting, but, couldn't you just swap them out for something similar in size but brighter? Is the switch universal?

Great set up by the way.
