Rigid Fog Lights - D-Series DOT/SAE Certified


Recommended Posts

Anybody else have a problem ordering their lights from Amazon? I ordered my set on Jan 21st and I've received two messages from Amazon that the shipment information can't be confirmed by the merchant. According to Amazon, the merchant is Internet-Sales...

A few install tips:

 

1. Just as an FYI, before you start breaking out tools, make sure you inventory all the bolts / nuts that come with the GM Mounting kit. I got halfway in and relied that Rigid had included the wrong Screws with a mix of thread types. Additionally I was missing the #8 Nuts, but had a bag of #6's. I went to HomeDepot and got the right parts but for a $60.00 set of brackets I am pretty disappointed that I was sent either the wrong parts or missing parts.

 

The kit is supposed to include:

  1. 8 Socket Button Head Screws #8-32 X 1/2 Stainless Steel
  2. 8 Nyloc Nut #8-32 Stainless Steel
  3. 8 Washers #8 Stainless Steel
  4. 4 Socket Button Hed Screw M6X1 x 30mm Stainless Steel
  5. 4 Plastic Unthreaded Spacers
  6. 4 Nyloc Nut M6 Flange

2. The passenger side top Screws can be a pain in the ass to tighten from the back, instead, tilt the light as far back as you can, this will allow you to access the top Nuts from the front of your rig vs, underneath. A flex head ratchet or wrench will make this very easy to do.

 

3. Once installed, you might want to do some subtle adjustments / aming of the beams. To do this right, you will want two people, one to aim, and the other to tighten the light to the bracket.

  • Once installed, the light may sit crocked in the bracket, IE not parallel to the ground which is apparent in the dark, to properly adjust each light, I used two wood shims, (two puddy knives would work) so that the light sits level in the housing.
  • Once centered and aligned, you can have one person aim the light, up/down/left/right, while the second person tightens the bolts to the bracket.

Just got and email from rigid telling me to complete my order by January 31st at midnight and I can get 5% off. Had the dot lights and brackets in a cart online earlier in the week, but hadn't checked out

Does the Rigid kit involve any cutting? My truck is a lease so i dont want drill or cutting holes in the bumper.

Here is a good before and after dirt road comparison between no rigids and rigids.

Damn! Big difference! I always forget the realistic difference that these pods make. They make a difference but not this big of one when your looking through a 30% windshield haha

I went to buy the lights and mount at 4wheelparts. They said both were in stock. At the will call, only the lights were there. I got a refund. If I have to order them I'll get them tax free and shipped free.

 

Who has the mounts and lights in stock?

Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum but a long time reader. I just purchased the fogs and mounts off of gotexhaust.com. The fog lights are $239 and the mounting kit is $51.99 with free shipping and no tax. In stock! I received them in two days from gotexhaust after waiting on amazon for a month just to have them cancel my order due to availability or just a price they couldn't honor. And thanks to everyone's posts installation was a breeze.
