Recommended Posts

Oh ok haha. Not a fan of the whole Carolina squat thing. It looks like a dog dragging his ass on the ground hahahaha [emoji23] [emoji23] [emoji23]

When I first got it lifted I thought I wanted some squat but I'm definitely glad it doesn't now lol

Well here ya go fellas. First off these things are very bright! I was not disappointed at all! On my way home I was flashed one time and that one time was by a semi... might not be a good thing. I may try to adjust these down a little more. I could see every face in the cars i passed. My wife was in front of me and said they were pretty blinding... I love the brightness but I don't want to blind people. They almost wash out my headlights all together. If you're not sure about getting these, just get them and don't look back! here's some pics

 

Those signs are about 50 yards away. The first pic is rigids only.

Rigids with low beams.

Rigids with high beams

This is rigids only about 10 feet away from my garage.

Well you are lifted up so your lights will be higher. Even a properly aimed light with people in small cars being at eye level they will certainly be blinded! Just something that'll happen. Guy that lives in my area has a Nissan Fronteir lifted like 15" on 40s. (Who lifts a Nissan that much? I didn't even know they made kits that big for them) and he blinds everyone.

 

Also it looks like your diver side light is way higher than passenger, may want to adjust that side and you should be good.

 

I really want to get the Rigids as I need more light. Unfortunately I have a Silverado...to fill the fog light hole, I'll need TWO PAIRS of the Rigids. I guess I'll just take out a home equity loan.

#silveradoproblems #sierraperks(: lol I had to

Does anyone have an installation write up of how to install the Rigid Fog lights on a GMC? I assume the Rigid Brackets come with some instructions but I haven't been able to find them online,

Just look for led light bar thread....Did my Sierra with their inst. and worked out! Only downfall you have to cut your existing plastic bezel, don't like cutting stuff on my truck.But an all new light ouput when installed.

Sawyer, great pics of the output! I just got back stateside and will be installing these this weekend.

 

For those asking for the instruction manual for the fog light brackets, here they are...

And for those not wanting to cut into the factory harness, you can make a quick jumper harness using the following:

 

Connection to Factory Fog Plug

Tanner709 is correct, the fogs to not use that connector. You would need a 5202 connector if you wish not to cut up the factory harness.
