Default Re: How-to: Fog Light Surround Delete Mod

Just did this tonight. Damn, why didn't I do it sooner? It kinda feels like I got new bulbs. And with the Silverstar Ultras in my fogs it just makes the mod even better.
But why the hell is that shroud there in the first place? From out in front of the truck the fogs only look slightly brighter but from behind the wheel the difference was immediately noticeable. So if they put that shroud there to not blind other people, well that was pointless

the "surround" is to keep more of the light focused in front of the vehicle, without the "surround" the light is more widely dispersed. it does NOT make your lights any brighter. but, it may "blind" others because the "surround" is removed, which kept the light more "concentrated on the road"

Actually, it does make it brighter. I'd rather been seen than not be seen....blind the other *******s on the road is what I'm all about.


EDIT: I see FRF has implemented timed post edits. INGENIOUS!! rofl. I was gonna fix my earlier pic post....looks like I can't.

Zero problems blinding people, and I have my fogs pointed as far up as they'll go. I got in front of the truck at night to be sure, even squatted down to look at it, and it doesn't even come close to being an issue.

I know this is an old ass thread, but found it useful. I installed some H10's tonight and they are fantastic bright. I also took off the surround and the beam patter is very wide and def high. Not sure how it will play with oncoming drivers. May put the surrounds back in and see how it looks with them.
