Kinda odd because the badges fit flush at the same location & they're flat on the back just like the led plates
thats what I did...just mounted the badge a little lower so there was no gap at the top :D

I'm working on a new mod that will allow dual intensity for the led fender plates & led oval rings. Same color, just two brightness levels.

This mod will connect to your parking lights (low intensity) so the led plates will be on whenever your parking lights are on AND connect to your turn signals (high intensity) so the led plates will get brighter/dimmer with your turn signals.

If you DO NOT have your parking lights on, the led's will only blink on/off at the high intensity level.

That was much harder to describe than a video, so I'll see if I can get something put together this weekend for a better demo.

Once I have all the details perfected & have a little "in the field" testing done, I'll try to have a retrofit for you guys who already have these installed so you can have the dual intensity illumination as well.

i agree, awesome new development Bug! i cant wait to get a set of these.

when you guys mention moving the badge down to get it flush, wouldnt that mean dremmeling out or elongating the mounting alignment holes on the fender itself?

You don't use the alignment holes for mounting. Just the adhesive.

I'll have to had this to my list of things to buy from Buggman haha. This got me day dreaming about a badge where the RANGER lettering lights up white at night. All these awesome products you're making Buggman is really fueling by LED obsession haha
