Default Re: Coverting fog lights to LED cubes

Hi, sorry, was offline for a while... Here's a photo of the back of the passenger side fog lamp/valance. You can see the bolt at the bottom holding the Rigid dally lamp bracket to the valence. Also, once I trimmed a small piece of plastic (key) from the Rigid lamp connector, it plugged right in to my factory fog lamp connector. I put a zip tie there to hold the wires up, out of the way.Took me about an hour.

One more thing that I forgot, these lamps emit some sort of RF that interferes with the TPMS - after 45min of driving with these lamps on, my TPMS warning will go on (the truck has lost contact with the sensors - 45min is the timeout) turning the lights off will result in the TPMS regaining contact and the warning going out. One day, I'll add a ground connection from the lamp mounting bracket to maybe prevent this... The lamps are mounted to the plastic valance right now...

Richard, how far in did you drill the hole for the mounting bracket?

Do any of you guys know if any other brand of led cubes will just plug right in like the rigid ones?

How did you get a drill up in there to drill the hole? The very bottom of my valence gets in my way
