    Haha funny you mention it, I have been considering it, but same thing, not sure I want to leave the Amber.

    Driving home tonight there was a ton of smoke in the roads from fireworks, the Amber cut through it pretty decent!

    Can anybody explain how to remove the plastic fender well? Do you pull the whole plastic fender straight out? Or do you pry the clips off to get the fender off? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

    Yes you have to remove all clips and bolts. After all hardware and fasteners are removed then it should wiggle out. You have fasteners on the bumper/fender and frame.

    D1C72AE4-0432-4534-9CBE-0048B47DD3E3.jpg I installed these the other day and can’t get over the gap between the OEM fog light bezel and the Baja kit. Is this much gap normal? Disclaimer, I absolutely suck at installing shit, broke tabs/plastic removing the wheel well liners and my passenger side fog light bezel won’t align correctly to pop back into the bumper all the way (today’s task), so this likely could be my install error. I just couldn’t see any other way to remove this gap in each.

    Other than the gap, I love the lights and as others have said, way to bright for on coming traffic, but I plan to use them as brights more than anything.

    We are usually able to get them a little tighter but a little bit of gap is normal.

    My passenger side is slightly better, don’t have a pic handy. It seems to me that the metal brackets that pop into the tabs of the oem housing could be slightly shorter to close this gap.

    Yeah it’s got to be something I messed up. I’ll take another look when I have my passenger light out today. Thanks for the tips.

    I noticed a small gap with mine, but once mounted on the truck it isn't noticable, and I have a touch of the OCD.

    Hopefully a second check of that one will correct it.

    It took me several tries to get the gap to get smaller. I was able to get it small enough to my satisfaction in the end. There will be a small gap on the inside edge of fog light, no matter hard you try. If you don’t install the foam or install the foam pieces correctly the gap will be quite large. The foam pieces are a PIA to install. Take your time and get the foam pieces to fit properly. Also, dont install the fender liner back until you completed aiming the fog lights.

    They expect to have SAE DOT approved fogs coming soon, just an FYI.

    forgot to mention, in case people werent aware, there is a SAE version of these lights as well that you can run on the street. I just ordered a set to put in the fogs and I am moving the Squadron wide angle to ditch light brackets.

    Good call! I will edit the original post tomorrow to show their new SAE lights.

    Please let me know how you like them.
