I didn't know they made these. Would these fit the stock fog light location?

I'm guessing a bracket would need to be made(if 4.5" is the right dia).

Did you buy your headlights from the store that has the aux lights? I am interested in a set and the price seems very good.

IMO these are 100 times better than the ones you listed in the link. I use them on my carhauler for load lights at night and they are intense lights. Much brighter than the Phase 7 lights. And cheaper.

Another option as well.

There is also these if you want to make a bracket to fit your existing factory setup. If anyone figures a way to make a bracket please show pics and description of how you did it. I'd be interested in that mod for sure.

All those fog lights are low output. If you want to see, get the Baja Designs Squadren Jeep JK kit. They bolt right in and leash out over 7,000 Lumens. For a comparison a Mag light is about 40 lumens.

I ran all three. I preferred the Series 7 as they cast light onto the road and I had less people flash me while passing. The flood lights WERE Sweet, but seemed to have a missing pattern down the road when running floods for fogs only.
Just from running Series 6,7 and floods I prefer the 7 combo.

$730 for a fog light? Better be a light saber.

Anyone used these lights? Do they require special brackets, etc.? Plug and play?

Surely someone has used these?

I found the opposite, but then again I used them on a Harley and equipment. Found the ones I listed performed much better. The D2's perform the best, but aren't round to fit the Jeep fog application.

Rigid Industries and a few other companies make brackets to bolt in the Dually and Dually D2 into the stock foglight location. As long as you use the spot pattern they work great for fog lights. I also run the D2, but they are just too brite to use on the road.

My guess is these are too bright for street use, similar to running Rigid D"s w/BDF bracket. Vision X has a kit that maybe better for street use, but I like the idea of the series 7's to go w/my headlights.

The Rigid mount works great with the D2's. Just have to get a little creative in order to aim them. They barely give you any play to aim them

Ive emailed Truck Lites several times asking if they'd fit or not but havent heard anything yet, if you're looking to match the Series 7 Headlights the Rigid Duallys are spot on

I just did the D2 dually fog light w/ bracket . Way better than stock and you can adjust them. I can't compare to any other brands . From start to finish less the 2hr install.

I modified the harnerss that came with the kit. I used a relay instead of switch that came with the kit.

What beam pattern did you choose? Are you actually using them as fog lights? Are they acceptable with other traffic?

If you want to use them as fogs in traffic you need the spots in the Dually D1. The Dually D2 is too brite even in the spot version. You would simply blind oncoming traffic. I have a light bar and D2's now. If you turn them on and stand 100 feet away in front of them you can't see the ground, Jeep, or anything to the sides. All you see is blinding light and nothing else. Very dangerous.

Any pics of your install or after install comments regarding using them with traffic and how well they light the road?

If those where about half the money or even 1/3 less I'd give them a shot, but seems to me they're trying to make all they R&D money quickly back upfront. Warranty is impressive with it being a limited lifetime, but thats only as good as the company providing it and how viable the company is.

Nemesis has a Bracket that'll let you Use the JW & TL Fogs in the OE Location.

If you're Using the OE Bumper, you'll have to Trim some Metal for Clearance, if Aftermarket, they should Drop right in.

Only problem I See what the Bracket Adapters, you can't Aim the Lights. It's a Solid Mount. Only way I could see it being Possible is to Use Washers and Space the Mount for Proper Aiming.

You can't Adjust the Aim with those Brackets.

Yeah Not to mention they're asking $119 just for the bracket, thats crazy. I went with the Rigid Industries Duallys and their fog light mount brackets. Used a bunch of washers to adjust them. No problems blinding oncoming traffic
