Bumper Light Help

I got a different bumper for the front of my 2012 JKU and had to remove the OEM fogs since the new bumper didn't have the cut outs. I want to get some new lights on the bumper and use the OEM connectors so I can use the OEM fog lamp switch on the stem. Has/does anyone know of a kit that uses the OEM connectors, I heard that KC has one but I found nothing except for a 2009 OEM.

Thanks!

You can still use the OEM switch on the steering column. I put RI Dually D2's in mine. They flicker when the key is turned, but instant on/off when I want. Don't limit yourself to the OEM connector. Cut that bitch off and solder/crimp what you need to add to make it work.

Like Mathie said. I have installed KC SlimLites to the windshield, and PSC back-up lights into the rear bumper via separate light switches. I know there are some threads out there about the same idea you have, just do a search, you'll find them.

The S-POD is also something you may wish to look into (caution: $ticker $hock!).

If you're looking for a complete plug and play solution in your factory fog location without hacking up the factory wiring, there is this from VisionX.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Here is what I did. I decided to fab up a connector that would plug into the stock wiring, using a cut up stock foglight bulb.
Been working perfectly for 2+ years.
