If you want to run the lights at the front of your toad you will need to install a diode at each running power wire going into the light bulb socket.

You would need extra diodes, # 48955, and you would need to splice in extra wiring, # DW02360-1.

Wiring the front running lights will be similar the wiring the rear running lights, see attached photo. You will
need to make sure that your towing vehicles trailer wiring is capable of handling the extra amperage required by adding the extra running lights on the tail light circuit.

Locate front left-side running light wire on the toad and install a diode inline, leaving one input prong open for the wiring from the towing vehicle.

Next, locate the front right-side running light circuit and install a diode inline, again, leaving one input prong open. Now, create a jumper wire to carry the running light circuit from the left-side running light to the right-side running light.

Finally, splice a wire into the tow vehicle running light wire, run it to the previously unused input prong on the left side diode along with one end of the jumper wire and the other end of the jumper wire to the previously unused input prong on the right side diode.

As long as your tow vehicle trailer wiring is capable of handling the extra amperage of the front running lights on the toad you should have no problems running the front and rear running lights on your 2007 Jeep Wrangler. I have linked some instructions and a couple of videos that should be helpful when wiring the Jeep.
