subscribed. Im looking into this direction as well.

I was thinking about some sort of light bar or pre-runner bar but can't seem to find one that wont break the bank. It seems like $200 + for the light bar and then another $100 + for lights.

I'm wanting someone to try these before I buy one for myself. Would install easy under the bumper in the factory chin holes.

When ever i do fog. Lights in mine i will be using these in the outer most bumper hole. Should even fit in there without having to cut the center piece out of the otter bumper holes.

u can get almost the same thing in that link MATT gave you for 60 a piece form superbrightleds.com... just not a rigid that's all. only thing that makes a rigid different is they have the patent on the reflective background that give a little better of a light output

im actually right no comparing the two for lumen output and such as we speak

SQUARE, fit in factory bumper cutouts
rigid dually =1300 lumens @$170 (slighly smaller then D2) comes in 2 different angle beams
https://www.rigidindustries.com/category-s/131.htm

superbrightled = 1350 lumens @ $120 for the pair (3.5"x4.5"x2.5")
http://www.superbrightleds.com/morei...bar/1220/2860/

rigid Dually D2 = 2600 lumens @ $300 (3"x3"x3") comes in 3 different angle beams
https://www.rigidindustries.com/category-s/131.htm

exploration outfitters = 2900lumens @ $204 for the pair (2"... altho it looks like a 2"x3")

baha deigns squadron = 3600 lumnes @ $300 (3"x3"x2.6")
http://www.offroadwarehouse.com/prod...roductID/51804

could always grab a set od SD fogs at a junk yard and mod them to fit the 9007 bulbs in your headlights for more light output!!!

they are fine if u install different lights in them, stock light output sucks. buy the time you buy them, and aftermarket bulbs, you have bought a LED unit which put out even better light.

if you have them laying around or can get them cheep go for it. here is a link for u. this guy bought the HID version of SD fog lights off eBay i believe
How to: SD Fogs in stock bumper
