Rigid D2 LED Fogs Installed

I've been thinking about doing this for a while now, finally got the itch and did it over the weekend. Rigid D2 Driving fogs in place of the factory lights.

They're wired using a relay harness triggered by the factory fog lights... no wires cut or spliced. I made a couple of brackets from aluminum L and bolted them to the stock fog brackets.

They make the headlights look dim.

why was a relay required? Couldn't you have just used the stock wires for the LED lights?

Relay harness came with the lights. Besides, I wasn't about to cut the weather pack connectors off the new lights or the factory harness for that matter to splice and solder wires together because the connectors are different. I'd rather leave it so the stock fog lights could be put right back in.

I'm very happy with how it turned out, they've got a good beam pattern and the mounts hold them solid so there is no vibration in the lights when driving. They definitely get the thumbs up from me.

I've been contemplating doing a light bar between the tow hooks (no front plate needed here in PA).

Those fog lights are nice though.

I like these so much, the 20" light bar for the center of the bumper may be next. No front plates needed here in FL either.

It's hard to imagine how much brighter that bar is at 80W compared to 35W fog lights... the front of the truck will look like a supernova. Not for use in traffic obviously, but where I'm at there are lots of back roads and 4 legged animals that like to jump out of ditches in front of cars.

I have a bull bar on my truck but haven't had the courage to pull the trigger on the 20 inch light bar LOL. Those fog lights would work on the bull bar but would probably look small.

I installed the standard dually's as daytime running lights connected to one of my upfitter switches.
Click the image to open in full size.



I also installed a set of Rigid SRM diffused amber flush mount pointing out the sides. Those are connected up to the same switch as the dually's.

This set of lights will also flash (in 7 different patterns) when I energize another switch that sends 12 volts through a Sho-me flasher module. I had to install a diode to make this possible.
Love the Rigid LED's!!

That's a nice setup, the flush mounts in the fog light baffles look good. What did you mount the Duallys to behind the bumper?

Thanks!
If you look on either side of the license plate up inside the bumper you will see a couple predrilled holes. I cut short pieces of aluminum L stock and bolted one end to the predrilled holes and the Rigid light bracket to the other end. And painted the brackets black otherwise they would be visible. Nothing fancy, the hardest part was getting them perfectly spaced and equidistant in the opening.
