Forgot the all white light shot.
Not sure, I was in the same situation and I found it much easier just to upgrade to the honey comb grill (which I preferred anyway). If you want to keep the slot grill I would imagine you might have to make some modifications because I don't think that grill was all that rigid to support lights. I would be worried about the lights coming loose.i bought the same LED's wanting to do this.
i have the slotted grill inserts and still would like to use them.
any ideas where (or how to make) to get brackets for behind the slotted inserts?
Question, what was the exact grommet you used? I can't really find anything that is looking like it will work for me. I also have those same light but haven't had much luck figuring out how to mount them without them looking bad, lol.
Unfortunately I don't remember the exact size rubber grommet that I used. I know I went to my local home depot with my bulb and a piece of my grill (it wasn't installed yet) and played with them until I found the size that worked. I think either 1/2" or 3/8" should work. This is what I bought, but again. I don't remember 100% on the size.Question, what was the exact grommet you used? I can't really find anything that is looking like it will work for me.

blaster9,Nice i just did the same thing for my raptor style lights (less the controller). I too am wanting to put some cube lights on both sides of the ACC. I found 2 pre-threaded holes in the frame but would need to fab brackets that tuck backwards in order to fit. Alternatively im considering ordering just the mounting brackets from rough country’s 20” led bar kit for behind grill for ppl without ACC, and using those brackets to rig up the cubes.
I utilized a controller, if you go back to one of my original posts I wired in a accessory control module and wired them in so they go on and off with a switch. I know a lot of guys just wire them into parking lights but I wanted the option to turn them off. Plus I was adding other lights as well so the controller made it easier to run the others.SafetyMan84 -
For your yellow LED lights in the grill, where/what did you tap into for power? Are they on all the time?
I am have the LEDs, but I am unsure where to get the power. I would like them on once the ignition is on.
I disagree. You can get a good, clean look... If you spent as much time and effort as I did trying to figure out how to best accomplish that lol. Here's my setup:Hey everyone,
Figure I'd put up the plans and project as I go. I have a 2014 WK2 Limited. I always like the Trailhawk but as it wasn't available for my year, I would have to make my own. I recently seen some other posts about adding some accessory lighting and thought some looked really good. I've never been a fan on big light bars on top. IMO they look slapped on, and not clean. Maybe good for a Wrangler but I feel the Grand Cherokee should look clean / stock.
Do you have any guidance on how you did your wiring to keep it clean looking?
I got the inspiration from 2180Miles; if you Google him you'll find his page with his mods and "how to's" - It was very helpful.Do you have any guidance on how you did your wiring to keep it clean looking?
Thanks for the tip. I was concerned about that and wasn't exactly sure how to securely mount the switch bank that wouldn't ruin the headliner with constant use. I found the spot in front of the center console fit really well. I was initially concerned that the switches would interfere with the center console latches but I haven't been having any problem. I think they look good and their location is convenient to get too if I need them.
