95 Wrangler YJ Driving Lights

Hello everyone!! I am installing a set of driving lights on my 95 wrangler. There is no exsisting lights or wiring. I know in most states there is a law that requires your driving lights to shut off when you turn on the high beams and back on when you turn on the low beams. Can someone give me a tip on how these will wire up into my system??


Thank You

Re: 95 Wrangler YJ Driving Lights

In all my years of having my cars, vans, trucks and Jeeps inspected in NC, Never once has any inspector ever checked to see if my fog or aux driving lights went out with the high beams. I think you are worrying WAY too much.

Re: 95 Wrangler YJ Driving Lights

Depending on the wattage or candlepower, you really shouldn't be driving with them on while cars are coming towards you or in front of you. I doubt that anyone is going to check to see if they go out when you turn on the high beams also. I have my KCs (100 watt) hooked up to turn ON when I hit the high beams. I've personally have had no problems with them.
Just hook them up according to the manufacturer's instructions and you should be fine.
Oh, one other thing...
There is one wire that I have seen with most off road light kits that is supposed to hook up to the headlights at the plug that goes into them. This wire will determine when the driving lights turn on. You can hook this wire up to the wire for the regular beams, high beams, or the parking lights. It's up to you when you want them to turn on.
I hope this helps.

1. Get a standard headlight relay.
2. Hook the Off-road lights up through the Normally Closed contacts.
3. Hook the relay to be energized by the vehicle lights,
4. Turn on the light, and the relay engages, and
5. Removes voltages to the Off-road lights.
6. Turn off the lights and the Off-Road lights come back on,
7. As long as it's swtiched relay is still enabled.
