Looks good!

I did the same thing with my fogs, just set them in a little further. So much better than the stock set up!

Basically all I did was take off entire front bumper, remove old fogs and bezels, then I used the rigid light as an outline of where to cut out from the bezel. Used a dremel to cut around (leaving extra space) then I used the dremel to sand around the part I cut out to make it smooth...that part takes a lot of patience. I stopped periodically to see if the light would fit.

Getting the angle on the fog to make sure it straight is also a big thing to focus on when you are making sure it fits.

I ended up using the wiring harness and switch Rigid provides because when hooked up without a relay between the factory power wires and the rigid wires the wires got hot really quick. Figured it would probably be best to install them as designed to start and problem solve at a later date if I wanted to integrate them with factory fog light wiring. Anyone solved this issue yet?

As far as the switches and wire routing goes, I routed everything to the connections under the hood for power and ground and ran the wires through the unused plug on the fire wall. (Hint: take the plug our first and cut a small hole to feed the wires through so you can keep the plug. Once inside the cabin I ran the wires underneath the console to the drivers side. See pic

Light bar.....fits perfectly behind the lower grille mounted to the metal bumper. You will need to mount it behind the lip at the front so it fits in the lower grille window. Broke a few drill bits on that bumper but well worth it.
Once the holes were drilled I used metal self taping screws to secure the light. This light bar doesn't come with the wiring harness like many of the other Rigid models and I would suggest buying it for ease of installation. I didn't and spent roughly $30 building one from scratch. It is a savings over the Rigid harness however; the time savings alone are worth the difference IMO. You can buy a wiring kit from Advanced or most other places for less ($12) however; the materials were not nearly the same amp rating as the Rigid harness and you need two switches to use the back light function seperately. They can be wired together of course but that defeats the purpose.

Thanks!!!!

SC doesn't have state inspections......I am from Virginia so I realize the issue.

The duallys are SAE compliant. The light bar I only use when I am off road or on a road alone.

The fogs look awesome. The stock fogs are not great. Wish they were LED's on my Overland.
