Don' mean to hijack the thread, but I have bought a jeep g.c. that had been set up to tow. The former owner had a homemade light bar strapped to the roof racks and told me the jeeps' own circuits/ wiring could not be used. True?

My last 2 toads I used the separate bulb set up as Henderson suggests no problems and no screwed up diodes
