Factory Fog Lamps replaced with Quad LED setup
 
Edit* Output pictures :)

Hey Guys, I am new to LGT but have been an enthusiast for some time (see new member thread)

I replaced my factory Fogs with Rigid Industries Dually LED's since the Dually draws about half the power of our turn signals I decide to splice a Deutsche connector onto the factory wiring. I didn't expect it to work for whatever reason but it does!
These things are BRIGHT! each light produces about 1300 lumens (rivaling the headlamps)

I chose flood pattern but in retrospect dual spot beams may have made more sense since these things will be utterly worthless in fog or inclimate weather. more of a driving light.

They fit fine with the stock fog shrouds, I had to drill a hole for each mount but it was relatively painless.

Interesting, do you have more of a close up pic?

I could have moved them farther forward to close that gap, and i might down the road.

i have two other questions-
- hows it wired? do you need to do anything special to get max brightness?
- im also curious if they'd dazzle oncoming traffic...

Yes they ruin oncoming traffic in the flood pattern, but the spots aimed low enough shouldn't.

I just used the entire stock system I used the equipped wiring harness on my RS and the output is identical,
I will try and get some good picks up tomorrow of the output

$109 huh? i'll think about it!!!!!!!

can you give interested buyers a coupon code?

i bought mine from 4wheel parts they were having a 20% discount not sure if its still going on?

To dredge this back up - how did you mount your lights? To the stock fog light "tabs" or did you make a bracket?
