How to Aim Headlights (and fog lights)

Hey guys,
So this video will show you how to aim your headlights and your fog lights on our trucks.

This is a big problem I see all the time where people dont know how to aim their headlights and either their light beam is not lighting up the road adequately or they are blinding other drivers.

This video will show you how to easily and properly adjust headlights to maximize light throw and minimize blinding other drivers.

Let me know what you think!

You are correct about misaligned headlights being a major problem. Most people and shops etc never do it.

That looks like a good way to adjust the headlights. I am not so sure about the fog lights though. They are mounted much lower on the vehicle than the headlights and would have to be aimed up to fill the void of light on the fence. I would adjust them the same way as you did the headlights by measurement and tape.

I have always just adjusted them on a dark street by eye and made a few test drives. The few times I tried to use a wall, I never got the results I liked.
