    First impressions, they look exactly like the regular squadrons but with a cutoff. Originally, I was very concerned with the cutoff and blinding oncoming drivers. My tundra is lifted and it’s pretty level which means the fogs are pointing straight forward, not down. After two weeks of driving with them on at night, not a single person has flashed their high beams or complained. As of now, I am very happy with my purchase and I moved my old squadrons up to ditch light brackets. 34592032-5A36-4A9B-AA63-CD2DA3737E46.jpg

    I’d rather not list. My wife might see it.
    @MotoTundra thanks for taking the time in creating the thread. It gave me the courage to take this on myself. Your step by step instructions were right on. It took me about 90 minutes to get both sides done. Thanks again!

    That's awesome, good to hear. I may consider doing the same. Your truck looks great. Which brackets did you go with for the ditch lights and how do you like them?

    Absolutely, glad it helped! Your truck is sick btw.

    I went with Victory 4x4. They are low profile. So far they seem like a quality product. I do have one that may not be aligned correctly (my end) because the squadron bracket hits the paint when I lift my hood. I will fix this weekend and let you know.

    Night and day difference! The install was pretty straightforward and your thread helped a lot. I have a 2017 and did not have a blue clip holding the lights in. Checking the current on my factory harness, blue (driver side) and red (passenger side) was hot and white was not. Although brown is typically ground in a lot of applications, along with black, I used the brown to connect to the power on my lights too. I too had a gap between the light and housing but based on the bracket provided, there is no way to eliminate this gap. You would need to fabricate a new bracket that allows the light to slide forward or position the "L" behind or under the screw.

    thanks everybody - got my BD squadron sports amber installed with the help of this thread! They are awesome. Used the zip tie trick to secure them - no movement of the housing now. broke 1 of 4 tabs off and broke two rusted bolts off but otherwise a clean install :) Brad
