^^^ Thanks for taking that one Da Jeeper! Between all the PMs I have received and actual posts on this thread, I feel I have answered the question of "where is the best place to get the anti-flicker modules" like 40 times haha. Besides amazon, I got mine off ebay.

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

Finished the install of the srt led fogs on my 15 HA. Not a very difficult project. Totally different front end with them in. Light output is amazing. Although they are pricey and needed anti flicker, well worth it.
Question is; how high/low should they aim. Do they come set in the box? Is there a standard?
When installing, best to follow the op's advise to mark the wall in front to level the cutoff line before you finally set them in on the clips. I thought I could just turn the base after they were set in, but they clip on tightly and you can't twist them.

I set the new fogs to the exact height of the originals. I marked the walls with painters tape prior to removal of originals and was easily able to put the new LED fogs at the exact height. That height seems to be perfect while driving at night. If you were unable to do the same, I will say they do not come set as is and will require adjustment. I recall having to adjust them a fair amount to get to same height as my original fogs, but can't remember which direction.

You do not want the fogs to be aimed up high and especially not into other driving eyes. Fogs are mainly meant to be kept fairly low to give a lot of light relatively close to the vehicle. If I had to guess the beam cutoff is maybe 3 car lengths in front of the car. Then be sure each side is identical and should be a flat line straight across.

If you are not sure and want to set them them to spec the service manual states to measure the the height from the ground to the center of your fog light. At exactly 25 feet from a wall there should be a 4 inch drop where the top edge of the light hits the wall. So if you measured say 35 inches then the light on wall should be at 31 inches at 25 feet. Thats assuming you are on a level surface, wall is straight and a good 90 degree angle and you are lined up with the wall straight. You can always tweak them from there but that is were the spec says they should be.

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

just got done with this install in my '16 HA. can confirm fit, no problem. it does need the anti-flicker modules.

in addition to the lamps (thanks scott!!) i used these:
anti-flicker harness: Amazon.com: Putco 760011AF Anti-Flicker Harness - Pair (H11): Automotive

plastic rivets: http://www.amazon.com/Needa-Parts-46.../dp/B00KJBHXDC
(these are exactly like the ones used in the tail lights, meaning they are re-usable so you won't have to cut again if you need to get in there)

first, i raised the beast to OR2 and cranked the wheels right, as i was doing the driver's side first. i did not choose to jack it up, you really don't need to. then i measured the output on the wall:


removed the 10mm bolt, cut the two plastic rivets, removed the plastic access door, folded felt back behind the wheel.

i then spent 20-30 minutes trying to get the stock lamp OUT of the housing. as james & others have said, there are four plastic things holding it in place that you have to bend away from the slot in the housing to remove it. i didn't want to break them so was trying to do it gently. if i could have fit a third hand in there, probably would have been easier, but holding the light with one hand and trying to manipulate a screwdriver with the other was a b!tch. eventually i gave up just prying the plastic out of the way and started bending the housing slots enough to remove it. so yeah, i won't be re-using them, but meh. it was the only way i was getting them out. this is by far the biggest PITA for this mod. the rest is cake. new lamp pushed right onto the clips. started up the beast to measure and align. didn't take much before i had this:


as you can see, huge difference. repeat for the other side and then i have this:


w00t! then i zip-tied the modules to some existing wiring (sorry for the weird rotation in the pics, was hard to get in there).

passenger side has a couple more existing wires to tie to:


driver's side, just tied to the headlamp harness:


loving this. such a huge difference and what it should have been to begin with. thanks to all for leading the way on this one, well worth it.

-TC

Just ordered mine off allmopar. Even with the exchange rate and shipping it is WAY cheaper then getting it through the local dealers. The local dealers wanted 360 PER side , I got them for 168 plus 36 shipping.

Re: New OEM 2015 SRT LED fog lights installed in High Altitude. Pictures and install!

I'm debating this mod, but since I only drive at night for a few minutes each day I know the stock lights are so much better than what I had stock on my Rubicon. Not sure it's worth the expense or effort. Maybe if I start taking long trips in it then I will do it. Just another thing Jeep should do from factory in a $50K + vehicle.

2014 does not require the anti-flicker module.

Yeah it might not be worth it if you never drive at night.
