Mopar LED Fogs installed

I tried installing these yesterday and ran into issues. After removing the bracket today, I could see it was gonna take all kinds of custom cuts to make these fit the OEM SRT brackets. Scott got his to snap right in, but I must have a different bracket. It took 5 hours to do everything, the first bracket took some thought and tinkering. The second bracket was a cinch to modify afterwards. I'm so impressed by the light, that I just had to have these.
If you decide on dropping a set of these in and need to modify your bracket, here's my mods.

Remove the bracket

Test fitting the new fog in the bracket. Right away you can see the new light is wider.

These ears need to be trimmed off.

Next these little tabs will keep it from being seated, they need to be removed. The factory fogs have notches in the arms that catch these tabs, the new ones don't have them.


Tabs removed and ears gone

This lip also needs to have a section removed to fit the bottom of the new fog.

Removed


A section of the top was removed for adjustments. The top of the fog was sitting flush with
the edge.

Now the fog snaps in the bracket perfectly in its new home, CONGRATS!
Then you realize the set screw is in the wrong place??
Yes, you'll need to drill a new hole for the set screw.


All modified up and set screw installed.

All that's left is admiring your work, installing the bracket and plugging it in.



OEM on the left and LED on the right.
