    SECOND REVIEW!! JUST GOT MY FOG LIGHTS LATE TODAY 3/3/2012 & WILL BE INSTALLING THEM TOMORROW 3/4/2012.

    I plan on taking a lot of detailed pictures and give my honest opinion and full review on the item:

    SO FAR

    1) Package boxed nicely

    2) Fog light kit comes in a nice box

    pic002_9fa171d38956a51546fcd44a5bbd91692a1adc93.jpg

    3) Kit includes two quality looking lights, one full harness that runs from passenger light to driver light, then from driver light to relay, fuse & provided switch

    4) even comes with the detailed installation instructions for trouble free installation

    5) FANCY HAT TO WEAR WHILE INSTALLING (VELCRO TOO :D)

    My only concern is the small toggle switch. I paid about the same for this kit as my friend paid for an OEM fog light kit with harness, relay and factory push button switch. I like the factory switch better so far just by looks but we'll see once I have every thing installed later this afternoon

    INSTALLATION PICS TO COME SHORTLY

    I think I'm gonna have to hole saw that factory black insert to make this fog light look factory, as you can see it doesn't fit the truck very well with the factory black insert completely removed...

    oopps sorry thought I was replying to the seller haha def impressed with the 2012 package if only I had a 2012. I mis-read the original post and just thought it was a new kit for 2012.

    can't wait to install the correct kit on my truck.

    received the correct lights today, unfortunately i won't be installing them for some time. my girl was involved in a serious motorcycle accident, but is stable, and I've been at the hospital since Thursday. came home today for a few things and to check on the animals and came home to the lights sitting at the front door.

    thank you again for the quick turn around on the replacements, I'll be installing them as soon as my girl comes home and I can get some garage time in!

    I received the same lights for the same truck just a 2008. They are 4 3/8 in diameter. I want to see how yours turn out and how long it takes before I jump in. I hope they fit like the OEM ones do.

    Awwe man sorry to hear that. Yea that takes the excitement out of it for sure. Well I'm in no hurry so you still may end up getting them in before I do. If not I'll post something about how mine went.
