Default lookin for fogs

Im looking at these from ddm, does any one have these or have any idea if there worth getting? They look and seem to be pretty bad ass to me and 1350 lumens is a pretty intense amount of light. http://www.ddmtuning.com/Products/11...W-Hi-Power-LED

not sure what year truck you have..... but those would require some custom fabbing to fit in your stock fog light position... not saying it can't be done, but might be a pain in the ass...

I have a '97. But I was thinking of trying to make up some mou.ta and either put them in the grill or mount them on the front bumper so they cover the grill

you do realize that the light you want is an off road light, right?
the bottom of the description say's it's a wide beam, non DOT off road light.
these are NOT fog lights.

thats a stupid reason. If people are flashing their brights at you, maybe you need to adjust your headlights. adding more blinding lights is not the solution.

My headlights are almost as low as they can go. Its almost to the pout where I am just going to take my hid's out and put the regular bulbs back in. I know there not aimed to high. And I live in basically hicks ville michigan where I am basically the only person around who has HID's and people must just think I have my brights on.

I thought about getting those for backup lights. and also do a projector retrofit and then you wont have to worry about people flashing you

So your saying projector headlights would help? Do you think the stock housings are making more of a glare than actually throwing the light

Yes that is what is happening. Your halogen housings were not designed to run an hid bulb

Installing a HID kit into a Housing/reflector that is not HID approved will cause glare no matter how low you aim them.
