    Default Flush Mounted Front Fender Lights

    Figured I might as well share this build here. I bought some 10 boxes from a local club member.



    and some cheap lights from harbor freight.



    then measured the whole



    and cut it out



    Test fit, had some clearance issues but was able to trim the inner fender back and they fit.



    finish product, self tapping screws for now but plan on rivet it on.



    at night



    just ran a toggle switch to the dash and fused link to the battery.

    I saw something simular that the border patrol was using except it was a while LED panel.

    This is very cool, thanks for sharing!

    I saw an XJ with those several months ago, wasn't sure what I was looking at, PM'd the owner & he confirmed that indeed they were lights. So I said gee, those are really sweet, I want some ... but then I never followed up.

    Cutting or drilling sheet metal on my XJ is usually a very traumatic decision for me so it takes "a while" before I pull the trigger on any mod that requires either. I've been thinking about a snorket for about a year. I'll have one in about another year ... . And these lights? Well, in another couple years ...

    The first cut is the most difficult!

    AMEN!!! I kept looking at my hood over and over before I finally cut the vent holes. Now I keep thinking, maybe if I put one here, or here or trimmed this back. And now I;m looking at the fender for a light hole

    I've been doing some searching and I cannot find anything like these. Off road lighting, side, fender, etc... Anyone have a clue what they may be called, or is it really that unique?

    I don't know what these would be called I was thinking about using some metal "switch" boxes like electricians use in home building. A small metal box that would just need to be primed and painted. Saw some made of plastic at Menard's. But I'm thinking metal would be better than plastic. A little silicone or marine goop to seal the corners and edges think it might work.

    You can use YJ fuel filler housing for a square hole and TJ for a round hole.

    ie. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Jeep-...Q5fAccessories

    If I was going to do this, I think I would mount some smaller LED lights on the roof or A pillars in combination with rock lights underneath. Just a thought.

    I think one of these will work:







    use black door edge trim around the edge of the hole and black silicone to seal any holes and along the edge. Would probably have to use a couple metal strips to hold it in place and bolt or rivet it to the fender. The prices were from 2 - 5 bucks each.
