On the first picture I posted the air dam is the whole section below the license plate and fog lights.

There are 7 quarter-turn fasteners holding it to the rest of the body; once they are removed, the air dam pulls straight out.

Re: HID Fogs - Alternative Installation

I finally had a chance to use these lights in pea-soup fog. They are a huge improvement over the stock halogens.

The 3000K bulbs show hardly any bounce-back from the fog; I don't know how higher temperature bulbs will respond. There is a banding effect which takes some getting used to (there is a sharp cutoff from the direct light, then a short band of reflected light before blending with the headlights); probably due to the housing/reflector design on the Jeep.

From an esthetics standpoint, they may be too bright if used with halogen headlights, but they look great with the HID headlights. And they look much better than the stock halogens with the LED DRLs.

If you live in an area with lots of fog, and especially if you have to travel narrow unmarked roads in the country, these are highly recommended!

Re: HID Fogs - Alternative Installation

Do you have any issues with the headlights running in auto mode ? I just installed the same kit and they will randomly turn off in auto mode. any thoughts ?

Re: HID Fogs - Alternative Installation

I don't usually use the auto-headlight function, although I have been playing around with it more lately. So far I haven't had any issues. Did you install the canbus harness? I can't think of any other issue which would affect the fog HIDs themselves...
