Looks good brotha! I have the 80w 9005 bulbs in mine right now. They're really bright.

However, yours look better than mine in your clear lenses.

Wetsand the lenses and polish them. However, your efforts will end up being in vain because the fog lights take a lot of hits from crap on the road.

As long as you like it that's all that matters

I don't see the difference either.

I have always found it annoying when people are coming at me with 2 different colored lights.

You are going to ford to have them aim your lights?

They are not that hard to do



1. Park your vehicle on a level surface 25 feet away from a vertical plain surface

Check your headlamp alignment at night or in a dark area so that you can see the headlamp beam pattern.

• (1) Eight feet
• (2) Center height of lamp to ground
• (3) Twenty-five feet
• (4) Horizontal reference line

2. The center of the headlamp has a 3.0 mm circle on the lens. Measure the height from the center of your headlamp to the ground (2) and mark 8 foot long horizontal line on the plain surface (1) at this
height (masking tape works well).

3. Turn on the low beam headlamps. The brightest part of the light should be below the horizontal line (4). If it is above the line the headlamp will need to be adjusted.

4. Open the hood.

5. Locate the vertical adjuster for each headlamp. Adjust the aim by turning the adjuster control either clockwise (to adjust down) or counterclockwise (to adjust up). Note: Use a 4 mm socket or box wrench to turn the vertical adjuster control.

6. Horizontal aiming is not required for this vehicle and is non-adjustable.

yeah no kidding, aiming lights is easy and all you really need is a wall and the aforementioned 4mm socket on a nut driver. park back, turn screws until they are evened out and not so high they blind everyone.

if it takes more than 5 minutes it means you had to do it twice and took lunch.

Im good friends with the owner of the dealership here, So I usually get good deals. I adjsuted the lights on my old truck, its tricker to get the left and right alignment so I'll just let them take a crack at it. If im not happy I'll just do it myself!

hey, leave the guy alone. he likes his amber fogs. I have a set of amber hella foglights with 100 watt hella yellowstar bulbs. on a foggy, snowy night, those lights helped a lot with seeing the road. also, during the day, if the weather is bad, they help others to see you.
