If you can wait, BD always has big sale during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is the only time they have a sale.

I did a quick trip to 60mph on a main drag and it wasn’t that bad, I was trying to make sure it wasn’t my imagination. Faint if any difference.

So I took delivery of a pair of S2 Pro lights today that I mounted in the pod position. I took care of the cowl mounting first to see what kind of space I was working with underneath and it looks managable.

I also got the upfitter wiring harness and the 55" splitter to run both lights off a single switch.

Here are a couple of photos of the lights mounted, I wanted to go low profile for the ditch lights mainly for aesthetics.

This last picture was just for fun. The wife and I took a ride to get some ice cream because it was a nice cool night.

So now I have to get the wiring completed. I am going to run the pod lights off switch 2 (saving switch 1 for fogs). Looking at the wiring diagram, I'm wondering if I'm able to simply use the connector on the upfitter harness and snap that onto the wire for switch 2. It's already powered so I'm assuming so. I watched the Bronco Nation video where they connected their rigid pod light. In that video, they connected one of the switches to one of the circuits that go behind the glove box and wired it up from there. The BD upfitter harness also has a connection for a ground which I have spotted a few areas where I can ensure it's secure.

Sorry for the dumb question but if anyone has wired up pod lights on their Bronco or has some insight, I would love to hear it. Otherwise, I'm going to do a little trial and error to see if I can finish this off on my own. Shout out to @Baja Designs for making some seriously high-quality lights!

UPDATE - We Have Power

The scotch-connector-harness-do-hicky-thingy-ma-bobber actually works really well. I recommend leaving the heat shrink on the end and then taping when you've got it connected. Just to keep it as water-tight as possible. Oh yeah, you can use the BD upfitter wiring and connect it directly to the switch you want, no need to go into the glove box unless you want to. (see below image for color-coding of powered wires) as @ohvrider suggested, you'll want to keep lower-powered items on switches 3-6 based on the fuse size (also know the wire size listed). BE ADVISED - you must ground these in order to complete the circuit, there is a spot to ground right by where you will connect the upfitter wire harness.

There is a lot of room under the cowl so you can clear the hinge of the hood even with some pretty big connectors. I ran the wiring into the engine compartment because there was a lot of room and it was pretty easy to zip it on to the existing wire looms in there without it getting too nasty lokking, well until I got to the passenger side haha!

I left the ends of my ties on so you guys can kind of see where I routed it. I have cut them since this picture because it was secure enough that I could close up the hood. If you have any questions please fire away.
I ordered these, I’m putting them on the mirrors, I want both to work under the one aux button, will I need anymore wiring?

I’m not familiar with what wiring comes with those but you will need a splitter (y-shaped cable) of some sort to connect the two lights together and then you will connect the end of the splitter to the powered wire for the aux switch you want.

I think it just comes with the wire that’s attached to the light and the mounting hardware

Nice choice. Those LP6 and bumper set up will let you send morse code to the moon at the correct angle...

according to the rigid documentation, it comes with bare wire leads. So yes, you will need more wiring. If you have the aux switch option on the Bronco, then it's minimal. However, if you are not familiar with wiring it, I recommend that you get a buddy to be there physically to help you through your first few installs so you become familiar with it.

Might be buried in the replies but did you use the supplied switch or the Bronco ones?

I got the upfitter harness so there was only one switch to use….well 6 but I had to choose one haha! I wired it to position 3 on the aux board in the Bronco.

I got the extra switches as well, trying to "plan my attack" although like many, I still do not have a build date. *fingers crossed every Thursday*

I did not get to take my night pictures last night, I apologize for the delay. I was trying to be super-dad haha!

I can confirm though, that with the wide-cornering lenses on the inside there is not much glare off the hood, basically none. The lights are super bright and I angled them on the cowl so they pick up where the headlights start to lose coverage. So these are filling up zone 2.
