Front LED Light Bar and Spot LED Lights Installed

For those who have not seen my winch mount thread - wanted to break out the light install part for anyone looking to put lights on their Cherokee. I installed the RRO bumper bar and side plate bar. The bumper bar comes stock with two light tabs on the upper bar and the side plate bar (my favorite for look) has four tabs on it. Two tabs are in the middle section and then one tab on each of the outside sections. I went with a 12" LED Fog Light Bar for the middle and then two 4" Spot LED Lights for the outside. The wiring was run in through the front trailer hitch opening I installed and then to a small Pelican box which I had converted to distribution box. The box has 5 HD light relays installed, a 6 ATO fuse block, two 30 AMP power circuits, ground wire, and a 7 conductor wire which runs through the firewall and into the vehicle for the switch pod. Ran the wire up the A Pillar into the ceiling. The 7 conductor wire gave me source wires for 5 switches, switch power, and ground for the switch LED lights. The switches are Carling Contura V with custom printed lettering to match how my lights are configured. I will be installing additional roof rack lights when my rack ships from the manufacture.

Curious about the 'Trunk Monkey' button. (I like it!) Just a tailgate pop, or have you elaborated on that?
