I ran silocone on the front as pictured....and i also took the two halves apart and ran a bead on the inner seal as well. no clue how well that inside did...but i have no moisture build up anymore...and my fogs sat outside in the rain and snow and ice for a good year prior to me reinstalling them on the truck.

when i split them, i ran to the sink with a toothbrush and cleaned the holy crap out of both pieces, including the rubber seal on the inside. ran a bead on both halves, and squished them back together. that seal is in the pivot point for the vertical adjustment on the lamp...so idk how much of a help that it was.

My lenses used to fog up like crazy and fill with water, I disassembled them cleaned them and rubbed a light film of dish soap on them and they haven't fogged once since.
