Question Rigid D2's on Stock Wiring and Switch

So, the question is this: can I run Rigid D2's on my stock fog light wiring harness? My Jeep JK would only allow the lights to flicker before the computer realized that there was a significant voltage and ampere difference and shut the power off to the harness all together.

Here are the numbers for the Rigid lights:
Voltage draw: 36V at start up, 9V constant
Amp. draw: 1.9 constant

I went out to the truck with a multimeter just now and found the answers myself. If anyone cares to know, the stock wiring harness pushes V14.5 average. It fluctuated between 13.99 and 14.801. I couldn't get a reading from when you first fire the lights up, but I'm sure the surge isn't that bad.

How did your install come out? Any photos? I'm thinking about swapping my OEM fog lights for Rigid D2 driving lights.
