    I'm new to your organization. I have questions regarding headlamp and fog lights. First of all, my Jeep is totally stock. I don't have fog lights. Any suggestions on types and mounts?

    Do you have any openings for them? Just asking incase you wanted to mount them in the stock location.

    No. I have access to a bumper with the holes for the stock fog lights. I'm wanting to know how effective they are compared to other fog lights that can be mounted on guards, etc. I'm looking for both pro's and con's.

    Well.......I don't think the stock lights are very affective. I'm running JW Speaker lights, which are OEM replacements, and I am very happy with them. The bad is that they are a little on the expensive side.

    These are fog lights? May I ask where you mounted them? If they work well, then fiscally it's worth it.

    I got the JW Speaker 6145 Fog Lights. I got the dark ones to blend in with the bumper. Ordered from Headstrong Off Road. Great service!

    Thanks. Appreciate that. Any suggestions regarding headlamps? The stock ones are.....you know. I have to replace them right away. Almost like having no headlights.

    I'm running the Quadratec led headlights. I went with them, as they are DOT approved, and don't blind on coming traffic, while being much brighter than the stock lights.
