Thx everyone. Even new you can get them all day on ebay for around 110 for both. I really think they look better than stock. Of course, once I mount the ones I bought from Aliga will bve for sale.

What if these fogs came off mercedes? Everyone would be touting their beauty.
My point is this: I think ours look cheap, and at the very least, outdated. These are off a 2000...they look so much better IMO.

Don't be jaded just becazsue we're lexus and these are Dodge. It shouldn't matter. Once on my car, NOONE will know...

Dodge has crappy products that yellow within one year of purchase. Before you defend them, you might want to research them.

Nice handy work on these, looks like you put a lot of effort into it..But I would definitely save up and shell out the extra $220 dollars and get the OEM foglights...It fits perfect and is always reliable...

I wouldn't put it on my car because a lot of times you get what you paid for...Unforunately, a lot of 1SC owners don't want to shell out the extra buck to do things right since the car isn't worth much anymore...

Again, these are from a 2000...I have some OEM from a 99 that bought on this board. You should see the difference. The Dodge look tremendously better.

However, I am NOT defending Dodge. American products in my experience are crap.

Just saying these look better.

I would not be surprised to find out fogs are all made in Japan. I think these look better.

That one on the car IS mounted...it is pressure mounted. Thats how it would look. I took it out because I didnt have time to mount the other one.

I may flush mount them...that would be the only difference.

Well IMO i think its a good alternative lets say you dont have money to buy fogs you could use these until you get the other ones, i still say with a little work and cutting and some bondo you could really make them nice and flush.

There will be no need for cutting and bondo (unless you count the outer plastic ring of the fog if I go for flush). I like the recessed look though...not sure yet. Once I decide, I will add two small bolts to the fog body (they will not show; they will be inside bumper) and bolt up.
