Re: Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly

Aren't you the one who debated incessantly about the misuse of fog lights in this thread http://jeepgarage.org/showthread.php?t=36769 but yet now you speak of the "wow factor" of fogs at night?

You are correct, but I was only claiming that for some people who have pretty bright fogs stock in a "reflector housing". If you have a projector housing there's pretty much nothing to worry about.

As I stated in that thread, I know the WK2's stock fog is a 24w so undoubtedly it won't blind anyone.

which ones/brand did you have? as you can see from my pics on the Noyka's it looks cheap and 3rd world quality compared to OEM.

lol, it's aftermarket so not everything will match the quality of OEM and I think the comparison to the undeveloped world is a bit harsh.

Re: Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly

Re: Destined to not have foglights that fit correctly

Awesome...and they snap in securely? Can you pull them out without depressing the 2 "tabs" on the side? I could Putcos right out as they fit so poorly.

sounds like my noyka's also, it's pretty secure and if you pull hard enough it will come out without depressing the tabs. i think it's attributed to the softer/cheaper plastics they use, not as robust as OEM.

yeah i know it sucks, but our choices in quality is limited unfortunately. the pictures don't do it justice in how nice it looks when it's on

Looks great, Armoredsaint! If the pictures don't do it justice as you say, they must be outstanding!
