Default 97-00 Cheap Fog Light Solution

FOGS ARE NOW MOUNTED. SEE PAGE 4.




Ok, I said I was going to find it and here it is. This will not be for eveyone. But it is for me. These are the fogs from a 99-02 (pretty sure) Dodge Intrepid. By all appearances, they are much clearer, higher quality, and IMO ONLY, better looking.

I waited until ebay had em for 50 shipped. Right after I bought them, someone posted others that looked like they were selling for $5 EACH. On my bumper here, this one is PRESSURE mounted. I just squeezed it in. It is recessed. If you want thast flush look like stock, you would have to cut the plastic ring off that it has. Easy.

The shape is slightly different, but recessed you cannot tell. Flush you probably caould not tell.

Here's the unmounnted fog. The harness of course is different...BUT, with a little cutting away the outside, it will actually work with our STOCK harness. A tab has to be cut with a razor.

They are VERY dirty.

I haven't even hooked them up yet...but they really look like they'll be really great. My car was hit in front and something is preventing the fogs from working. Once they do I'll post pics.

I think it is a pretty good fit for a cheap alternative.

The one thing that would bug me is the recessed fit. That's what makes the SC's front end on the 97+ look so slick is all the flush mounting.






.....but for 55 bones it works.

You can mount them flush. I havent decided yet. I like the recessed look. But to mount flush, I just have to trim away a black plastic ring.

Interesting- they look clean- I would like to see what they look like on- I also agree with B about the fogs sitting flush- but to each his own- props on finding this solution- just make sure you update the thread when your fogs get fixed

I like it as an alternative. IMO it'll look better if it's sitting flush to the bumper.

OOoooOO they look nice, I like the look of the clear lense. It must be glass right? Are these H3 bulb equipped foglights?
