TMH 18W Cree LED Work Light TMH 18W Cree LED Work Light

These are the lights I ordered, no reviews on Amazon, so I may be taking a risk. At $35 a light it's a low cost risk and will give me an idea on how this project will go.

Even if they don't work as well as they should they will make good auxiliary reverse lights

Mods are starting to roll in. Oh, and I finally got a big boy toolbox. (Garage needs cleaning)

Why not try a set of these? They would probably work better with the 01-03 valence.

Nice, I never saw those.

We'll see how these work since I already ordered them. Those look like they will work nicely.

I don't like the price tag, but they may be a much better quality than the ones i ordered.

I decided to go searching... I may try the ones I linked. I have half a valence to experiment on for mounting.

The Rigid's will look great too.

How did these turn out? I swapped in a set of BMW x5 led fogs to try they are a perfect fit. Same size as the stock fogs.

Main reason is not to blind oncoming traffic. The correct led projects the light onto the road way not at other drivers. I was running 55w 3000k hid bulbs in modified stock fogs with a cut off shield that worked well but still blinding. The LEDs are just as bright and use less than half the wattage. They also are stand alone and Don't require a wiring harness or ballasts.

Where do you get the BMW fogs ? Will they fit in the stock valance ? And do you like them better than your hid's ? I've never had a problem with my fogs blinding people but my headlights do . I've thought about projectors but I don't know how to do that projector mod that you did on the headlights

Hmm not there for me either, they may be out. You could shoot them an email or call.

They fit in my stock bumper with no mods to the fog, but for my winch bumper I had to trim of one of the alignment adjusters. Right now I have them mounted with some long bolts

For the wiring I just built an h11 jumper so it's plug n play

I feel I have started a revolution, if you don't have a set TRS has female plugs that can be spliced into h11 connectors that are available at most auto part stores.
