I have black and clear tails in my truck! no red reflector. never been stopped yet.

Tommorow I'll have to go find a good glue/plastic bonder at Napa or something.

Would you guys seriously not recomend the projectors as replacements?

I used proper aftermarket projectors in my Cadillac Catera and they really weren't that great. Since these are just fogs, and they look cool, they can't be much worse than a stock 55w fog light.

They still take a 55W H3 I belive, unless you go to a 100w bulb and risk your wires.

I'm thinking of getting the projectors and putting some Nokya H3's The hyper yellow ones, they claim draw 55 w but put out 70w. Might be a little brighter? but same wattage

The DOT doesn't not approve or certify anything. A DOT stamp or engraving on the product means absolutely nothing. Any retailer or product manufacturer that tells you that is lying to your face.

What does the ranger look like without a valence? It pisses me off I keep hiting it and scratching and chipping paint off the valence, with my jeep I used to just drive up snow banks in parking lots and park on top or sideways. When I try to do this with my truck it just "SSKKKKKKKKKKKKKRRRRRRRRRRRR GGGRRRIIINNNDDDD"

I picked up some "Quick JB weld" and put 3 layers on it and have heat blowing on it. So i hope it holds up.

Im planning on ordering these 9145 Nokya Hyper yellow hallogen fogs. Are they much brighter than stock? can anyone post some pictures?

Here ya go. I have Precision Optics 9005 80w, but going down to 55 again. I LOVE them. Those Nokyas will be the same. But hey, spend $26 CDN shipped and buy them here www.supremepowerparts.com


The yellow bulbs make a huge difference.

You can see just how yellow they are in this pic

If the valance tabs are broken, you'll have to use an epoxy as mentioned to keep the replacement fogs in.
I had to do the same as well......until the valance was replaced. I recommend having another driver hit your front end to do enough damage to require the front end to get replaced and repainted. I went from having busted shakey fog lights and a rock chipped bumper, to a new front end. Highly recommended, especially when it's the others drivers insurance paying.

They should be very similar to mine. Did you get 55w 9006?

In my pics, mine are 80w 9005, but I have the 55w version on the way.I'm scared I'm gonna burn out my wiring.
