Hey everyone. Continuing my tradition of showing how to do relatively cheap mods, I present you with my fog light installation.
These are the lights I'll be using. They are 3" lights. I had seen a bunch of blue colored lense lights, but I thought they would look tacky. So I shopped around a bit and found these at Checkers (O'Reilly) SKU Number is 28845-23062 for any crazy person who might be asking for sku's
This bit was found at Home Depot, fairly easy to find, it's in the same aisle as the rotary cutters.
This is what the bracket should look like. If not, this whole thing should still work for you, you'll just have to modify your drilling.
I hope this picture makes sense. If not, just look behind your front bumper directly behind where the fog lights would be. It should make sense then. Don't automatically drill your holes (1/8" drill bit) in the same positions as mine. Test fit the lights and make sure they are in a position you like. I wanted mine to stick out a little, so if you want yours to be recessed or flush, you may end up drilling a little further back. Remember, the bracket does allow for about an 1/8" of adjustment forward or backward.
This is the screw setup you will need. These don't come in the kit, so you have to get them yourself.
This is what the setup would look like on the car. Put the bumper mount between the bracket and the flat washer on the nut side.
This is what the bracket should look like when mounted. It will be a little crooked like how it is in the picture.
When installing my lights I wanted them to match my new https://www.customdakotas.com/forums/...s-3rd-gen.html
. The included bulbs give off a yellowish light, and I needed more of a white light, so I got these.
Don't remember the sku on these because I actually took them out of some lights on my Ram. I do know that they are Hella brand and cost about $18 at Advance Auto. This isn't anything you need to do, but if you do plan on changing bulbs, this would be the time to do it.
This is the back of the light with the included bulb.
Here it is with the new Hella blue light. As you can see, the connector at the back is different.
Putting the light back together.
This is the connector that came in the kit. It is designed for a round terminal, not a flat blade, so I had to change it.
Attach light to bracket and then move on to the other side!
Here's what it should look like when you're all finished. Pretty spiffy.
If you don't buy the bulbs, you will spend $19 on lights and $4 on the cutting drillbit.
If you buy the bulbs, add on $18 and you get a grand total of $41
