I am wanting to add driving lights to my '01 Wrangler. I am looking for a company that sells light switches identical (or real close) to the stock ones. I have an open slot for it and don't want to drill holes or make it look dumb. Also what brand of light do you recommend in the $100 -$200 range (KC, PIAA, stock Jeep etc.) I will mount them on the bumper.
Any good package deals for lights, switch and wiring?
Thanks,

sure the website of www.jeepsareus.com - they have full OEM harness kits that will have you looking like a stock option in no time. www.quadratec.com also sells foglights now that are OEM look-a-likes and plug'n'play into the factory harness.

So I went ahead and spent the money for the PIAA 520 Ion crystal driving/fog lights. The other question that I have now is which way to hook them up? The three choices are: (1) hooked up so they can go on anytime, (2) only when the high beams are on or (3) only when the low beams are on? What are the benefits or legality of the different ways?

After installing my new PIAA lights they are great. They light up the whole road not only straight ahead but also the area to the side and above also. But I discovered a new problem. I turn them on and get used to how bright it is. When I turn them off and only have my regular headlights on it seems so dark. So what upgrades are there for the regular sealed beam standard headlights that will be brighter and still legal?

Nice choice in lamps, I have the exact same and am quite happy with them. The KC slimilines I have are rusting badly...after 4 years of use. The PIAAs are rusting a bit too, but not as bad as the KCs. I hook all my lights up to be ran at anytime.

I use Hella Vision Plus Halogen Headlights, got them as soon as I bought the jeep on 02 and I'm still quite pleased with them.

Some other options are:
Delta Tech Replacements
IPF
Sylvania Silverstars (very popular)
Rampage

You get the idea...tons of options out there.
