2017 Jeep GC WK2 Trailhawk
added these two rigid lights behind the grill and hooked in a toggle on the Side of the Center console.
Wether they are standard or not, the Mopar rails work very well and have protected my Trailhawk from multiple disasterous run ins with rocks and logs while out and about. It's a cheap 800 bucks if you plan on taking your rig out.Yeah Jim i agree its another cash cow for the dealerships, like other so called accessories such as cargo covers, mud flaps, etc.
But the real question, is a rock rail just an accessory for a Jeep trim deliberately named a TrailHawk?
For those who will never see a rugged trail or do any kind of off roading with their TrailHawk, at least FCA could of incorporated a rock rail (aka beefed up rocker panel) a little more aesthetic looking for those folks.
Any tips on the install? What beam pattern(s) did you choose and how did you select them? And are you happy with the result? I'm mainly interested in better coverage against deer crossing on dark roads.Yes I did. Really good quality bracket nice and sturdy! I’m up in Canada and it shipped really quick too.
Bubba, Thanks for the shout out. I posted up about the wireless controller and the Homelink buttons. I have since added a back up set of flush mount Rigid Ignite Diffused to the rear bumper and wired them to the Homelink/wireless control as well.Wow, great.
As long as you're going to rework the switch anyway ... there's a thread or two here about using a wireless switch with a remote control, and then programming the remote to one of the three overhead console buttons. Something to consider.
Also, my plan has been to wire it so the aux lights will only come on when the headlights are on and on bright -- that way dimming the headlights, either manually or automatically, will also kill the aux blinders. One of those threads talks about that a little bit too.

My bend goes backwards. For switches I just bought some little blue toggle switches from Amazon and put them in the side of the Center console.For those that have done this install w/the fabworks bracket; How did you mount the bracket.... it has a slight bend in it vertically, did you orient the bracket so that the bend goes towards the condenser leaving a little more room for the lights between the bracket and the backside of the grill? Or with the bend coming forward towards the backside of the grill moving the lights away from the condenser and more towards the grill?
Also what type of switches have you guys used, specifically which manufactures and where you got them?
