Re: How to Join the WJ Quad Squad!

I have done this mod on my UK XJ and you need to install a diode in the link wire between the original lamp holder and the rear fog light lampholder otherwise when you have fog lights switched on you will have no brake lights. You may also need to replace the fog light lampholder with a stop/tail lampholder(three wires) to get a taillight supply to the rear fog cluster.
Photos to follow.

Re: How to Join the WJ Quad Squad!

Finally got the mod done today! Thanks to Rodaz, yes you were quite right, with the WG setup, cross feeding from the existing fog light circuit presents us with unique problems. After some thought and lubrication, I came up with the idea of using a 12v 4 pole change over relay behind each lamp unit. This method allows the quad lamps to work in normal conditions, but if the rear fogs are turned on, it reverts back to standard setup automatically and low and behold it worked. This mod will work on WG's produced in Austria, so should work on Aussie spec ones as well. I had to modify the fog lamp bulb holder by drilling(carefully!!) a 2.5mm hole and soldering a wire to the unused 7w tab. Strange that all the bulbs in the rear are doulbe fillament 27w/7w, just the 27w is used for the turn, backup & fog lamps!!
Is this the same for the US spec WJ's?????
Anybody that wants a wiring diagram and/or more pics, just let me know.

Marker lamps on

Brake Lights on

And finally, fog lights on, back to standard setup.

Re: How to Join the WJ Quad Squad!

Glad to hear it worked , All I did was link a new twin filament l/holder off the stop tail light unit, connected the fog light wire onto the stop light wire with a diode in the stoplight wiring to stop a backfeed switching on all the stop lights when using fogs.

Re: How to Join the WJ Quad Squad!

As a follow-up to my last post, here are a couple more photo's that may interest fellow Quad Squaders. My best mate was impressed by the mods that I've done and he managed, without my knowledge, to get this shirt printed. I was blown away when he surprised me with it a few days ago, so I had to share it with the guys on here!!
I will definitley wear it with pride at our next Jeep gathering and will have great fun explaining what is all about.
