He will!!!
They actually came w\ 55 and 100W bulbs- He ( MyFJ) was going to put 100's in anyway- so now he is running 2 100W + 2 55 W + headlights as well as a 100W rear IPF backup- It lights up the night now!
When the switches are installed, I'll post up a pic of it at night with everything on...

No Beers til the electrical is done! When I put the IPF's on my Rubicon (Holy Crap!) Roadside signs were a problem at night. Did the H4 X5 "Fatboy" on the Headlights.

Frigging bright. Wired the IPF 968(110w) Fogs up to the High Beam circuit.
You have to upgrade the harness on the jeep for the 110w (not for 55w)
Upgrade was easy. HID's My ass.

Yeah- I wired in all of my lights into a painless weatherproofe fuse box on ym Rubi ( like we did on MyFJ's FJ ) and all of the relays in a block.
I upgraded the factory hellas to 100 W bulbs- haven't had a problem with them ( and removed the baffle inside ) now they are 4 x's brighter.
Then I wired in my IPF 900's in the painless with the 130W they came with.
I used one of the stock Hellas on the rear for back up ( had one underneath also but it kept filling with crud.
So I put a weather proof one under the front bumper as a rock light- it rocks when night wheeling.







When we hit the beer- the work stopped!

Re: IPF arb lights installed- both sets on Ti FJ

So I just installed PIAA lights in the same place as you've got the IPF lights on the ARB. Where did you splice in the switch power? And do the IPF lights have a relay? If so, where did you mount it? I can't find a spare bolt anywhere.

Thanks!

That looks great. What kind of wheel setup do you have Damageinc?

Not sure what you mean by switch power-THE IPF's came with a relay but you can buy a Bosch relay ( I try to standardize on my rigs ) at most auto stores ( get the wire portion of the relay that it plugs into ( less than 15$ for both pieces ).
I wouldn't splice into anything else for power since you will more than likely overload a circuit and roast wires= fire on board.
