    I used my garage door and my driveway is leveled so what I did was measure the cutoff of the OEM fogs and then aimed the rigid fogs. The fog cutoff was about 20" from ground up with the truck parked around 5ft from the garage door/wall. I believe adding more washers will make it less stable plus it will move easily left and right.

    I ended up using the hole that holds the harness for the oem fogs and just drilled it out bigger. Luckily it worked out, with the bezel.. its not 100% clean and is hard as hell to tighten but take ur time and it'll get there. My bezel got bent so need a new one but plan on getting a bumper down the line so ehh.

    Does anyone happen to know if the 2018 SR Tundras are prewired for fog lights? I'd look, but I'm deployed right now so no access to my vehicle or anyone at home that knows what they're looking at. If yes, was thinking about buying these light (they are the ones that go in the bezel sold by Roman correct?): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074TWVKQN/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    And again, if yes I would be interested in a pair of brackets. Thanks.

    Thanks for your service first of all.
    Second, im gona bite the bullet and say that im almost 90% positive that everythings prewired and just tucked away if not “in use” to save from having 5 different wire harness for 5 different models(I know my sr5 headlights harness has the led strip plug but it was tapped off cause I didn't have a limited or platinum or whatever model has the led strip)

    And finally if ur using those as fogs it probably will be a shitty outcome due to the spot pattern.

    Agreed!
    I believe they all come pre-wired but the best way to find out is actually looking for the plug in the fog light area. Also the spot optics as fog lights will suck if you actually want them to work as fog lights.

    What should I be looking for in fog lights that make them less shitty if spot lights suck? Also @Matthewkort, what length is your light bar that you have in your grill?

    I’d use 504813, they’re like a 2nd setup of low beams set lower and wider light pattern. In the city I can easily get away with using just the Rigids and the headlight strips at night, I don’t blind cars with my LED low beams (I still aim the driver’s side headlight lower as a courtesy when I do have them on). Member here with those like mine:

    On my fj I had amber driving pattern and they did good, no issues with other drivers or police due to the amber factor, if you get them in white thats another story.. next option is DOT/SAE which they have in white and amber, im currently running the amber and have no issues and love them. The the bar in my grill is a 40” radiance(white)

    Just did the install on my truck. The most difficult part was definitely getting my big hand in with a wrench to tighten up the bracket.
