    After taking so much crap from a buddy, I finally got rid of my GMC and bought a Toyota. 2007 2.7 5spd access cab. I have already installed fog lights and front seat covers using tips from this site. Both things went great, I only have 1800 miles on it but my mileage is not to good. Will probably take out the secondary filter this week. Thanks for all the good info.

    Welcome to TW! What did you use to install the Fog Lights? Are they OEM or Aftermarket?

    BTW - Don't worry about the mileage. Mine started out at 19 MPG, and I slowly crept up to 23 MPG in town. Now I can get 24 in town if I am good to it, and on my last highway trip (secondary air filter removed and AFE drop-in filter installed) I got 28 MPG! ;)

    I used the blinglights from ebay. I didn't care for the gap around the edges so I used a piece of black vacuum hose and put in the back of the hole and then put in the blinglights. Then I just tightened the lights down and the vacuum hose stays in place behind the fog lights and they look great. Kind of looks like the rubber spacer between the fenders and fender flares. It takes out all the gaps. I also ordered the factory fog light swith off of ebay and it should be here today or tomorrow.

    Do you have any pictures of your setup or how you did it?

    I followed the instructions in Tech Chat which made it really easy. The only thing different is I put the vacuum hose in the back of the holes.

    How hard of a time did you have with adjusting the angle to get them lined up correctly?
