As it says in the title, this is one of KC's Apollo Series lights, and the Apollo series lights are going to be a plastic housing light as opposed to the slim lights which are a metal housing light. So that's one of the big things that sets this apart from some of the other light from KC. Again, the Apollo Pro Series is going to be a plastic housing.Today we're going to talk through the installation of this fog light kit which is a very simple one out of three wrench install. This is going to be a completely plug-and-play installation. You are gonna have to do some running of wires, but not soldering or splicing. So again, one out of three wrenches, probably around an hour or so to get them installed, maybe a little more than that, but we're talk more about the install in just a second.Now you can get these lights right here in the five inch 55-watt setup as these are, or you can get a six inch 100-watt if you're looking for a little bit more light and you're okay having something a little bit larger. So you do have a couple of different options if you're looking for an Apollo Series fog light.Now I really like the fact that this is a fog light, because I think it makes it very, very useful. You can run these on the street with oncoming traffic, you just need to make sure that they're aimed properly. If you were running a spotlight or floodlight, forward facing, you wouldn't be able to run that on the street with oncoming traffic. You'd blind oncoming drivers and it would be illegal to run. But again, this is going to be a fog pattern, aim them properly, you can run them on the street which is something I really do like.Now KC in general is known for making a high-quality light, and this is going to be no different. I said before this is a plastic housing and that's not necessarily a bad thing, these are still very, very strong. Some of us are a little more old school, we like the metal housings, but the plastic if it does get a scratch in it, it's not going to rust, these are going to hold up forever.Because KC does have a good name in lighting because they've been around for a long time, people know them and they make a very high-quality product, in general their lights are a little bit more expensive than some of the others on the market. And that is true for these lights as well.The Apollo Series is a little bit less than the Slim Light, but in general KC is going to be in the middle to upper end of the price range. There are certainly lights, fog lights, that are more expensive than these and certainly ones that are less expensive. These are going to be right in the middle.So getting into the construction, again this is an Apollo Series light so this does have a PolyMax plastic housing. These do come with those KC stone guards which are really iconic at this point, to have the KC logo right on them. These are gonna be a pair of 55-watt lights that are five-inch round, so they are going to be a little bit smaller than a six-inch version of these or the Slim Lights which are also mostly going to be a six-inch light.You're gonna get 55 watts of halogen light out of each of these lights. Now if you go ahead and compare some of the other options out there, if you're looking at LED, they can be different wattage comparisons, and LED lights are generally going to be square. You can still get some that are round, but they're gonna be a little bit more modern and a different color temperature. This, you're gonna get a halogen light, so it is going to be a little bit more on that yellow coloring. However, if you're running other factory halogen lights, these are going to match really, really well color temperature-wise.Something I've always really liked about KC lights is they include a wiring harness with almost all of their lights and this is no different, and so this whole installation is going to be completely plug-and-play. The lights themselves have a weather-tight connector on them, you'll have a full wiring harness that will plug into the lights, pick up power at your battery, also have a leg that will run through the firewall so that you'll have a switch that you can easily access from the interior of the Jeep. And again, that makes install very simple.So to get these installed is a one out of three wrench installation probably around an hour's time. The first step is going to be installing the lights themselves, and these lights have a traditional single post mount. They can be mounted on a bumper hoop, they can be mounted on the bumper itself if you just want to drill a couple of holes. But because these are a fog pattern, you're gonna want to mount them right at or below the headlight level and they are going to be aimed down a little bit further, so this is not a beam pattern that you're going to be putting on the A-pillars or up on the roof rack. This is definitely going to be low on the bumper.And then you'll go to routing your wiring harness. And there are a couple legs with the harness that come up and plug into the lights themselves. There's a leg that goes to the battery and then there's another leg that you're gonna have to pull through the firewall. Again, very simple because everything plugs in, there's no splicing, there's no soldering that you need to do with this wiring harness. It's just getting all the wires to where they need to be.Make sure that you're routing wires away from anything that is moving, from anything that is hot. Use a lot of zip ties, make sure everything's nice and clean, and you can get this installed, again, in around an hour and you'll have everything up and running.A pair of these lights will run you right around $135 and I don't think that's a bad price at all for what you're getting. Some of the more expensive lights on the market don't include a wiring harness or they do include a harness that requires cutting and splicing. This is gonna be a much easier install. You know with KC you're gonna get a very high-quality light, it's going to be everything that they advertise. If I was looking for a set of halogen round fog lights, I would definitely be considering these ones from KC, especially for the price.So if you're looking for an auxiliary light with that fog beam pattern so you can run them in traffic on the road, I think these are going to be a very affordable and easy-to-install option for you.So that's my review of the KC Hilites 5 In. Apollo Pro Halogen Fog Lights, fitting all 1987 and up Wranglers that you can find right here at ExtremeTerrain.com.

I mounted the lights and ran the wiring harness only to discover that the relay was faulty and did not work. The instructions leave much to be desired, but the lights look good. A perfect rating requires a perfect product...Helpful (5)

Decent, would buy again
Little bit pricey for what they are, but I didn't want an LED bar. I had these installed on a light bar above the windshield, and the wiring didn't reach quite far enough. Ended up having to butt splice in another couple feet. Still, they look fantastic once I finished.Helpful (5)

Will these lights plug into the existing factory fog light system on a 2010 jk?
The KC HiLiTES 5 in. Apollo Pro Halogen Lights will come with a wiring harness and relay but can be cut and spliced into the factory fog light harness.
Is there one switch for both lights or one switch for each light?
There is one switch, wiring harness and relay to operate both lights. (1) Switch as stated in "What's in the Box".
Just getting started with my 1st jeep and clueless on so much, once these are mounted, where is the switch? Can it be added inside the jeep and if so, do I need to purchase an additional switch?
The KC HiLiTES 5 in. Apollo Pro Halogen Lights will include a switch and wiring harness. The switch can be mounted inside the cab wherever you choose.
Regarding my question on a cover i understand in some states these require a cover right?
This question will vary between state to state as far as light covers would be needed.
How do I know if they are street legal or not?
Unfortunately, these are not DOT approved lights.
This would not come with any mounting no.
Th difference between fog beam and spread beam in relation to the KC HiLiTES 5 in. Apollo Pro Halogen Lights is a spread beam is similar to a driving beam but tend to be brighter, wider and possibly taller as they are not required to follow specific SAE or ECE safety standards. Spread beam lights are great lights for multi-purpose off-road use. Fog beams would be intended to be mounted below the headlights and project a beam pattern which is very wide horizontally and narrow vertically usually called a cut-off. This pattern lights up a pathway close to the ground but does not light the airborne particles in the line of sight while driving - this increases the visibility in harder to see conditions.
Yes, the KC Stone Guards are completely removable from the lights.
Thank you for your question! A spot beam is more concentrated, direct, and easier to point and control. A spread beam can illuminate a larger amount of space with the same wattage and lumen output as a spotlight. And a fog beam is flat and wide, and they are positioned low on the car, usually near the front bumper.
Thank you for your question! The KC HiLiTES 6 in. Apollo Pro Halogen Light - Fog Beam - Pair are not DOT approved. We would suggest checking with your local laws and regulations to see if you can use these for street use in your area.
The KC HiLiTES 6 in. Apollo Pro Halogen Lights - Driving Beam - Pair (87-17 Wrangler YJ, TJ & JK) will fit on the stock switch panel of a JKU.
Hello! Although it may take a little bit of custom work, this can be done, we have seen it a few times!
Hello, each light comes with its own mounting bracket, it will depend on where your looking to mount them, in order to determine if the stock mounting bracket will work.
Hello, since these lights have more output then the stock Fog Lights we would recommend using the wiring harness that comes with the lights, that way you will know for sure that those wires will be able to support the extra output these lights have.
Hello, yes this will work with the Barricade Light Bar.
