    hi guys, sorry i don't know too much about cars. what do the fog lights do? how much do they cost? mine are still empty and covered(black) ever since I bought my truck. do i just need to take that black stuff out and put 1 bulb on each side? are the lights just there to help you see in the fog? does it have any other purpose? thank you

    I don't use mine all the time, but in fog, heavy rain on a dark night, really illuminates the periphery allowing you to see the white fog line and stay between the ditches. :eek:

    they are mounted low on the car with a really wide beam so that in fog you shoot under the fog and see better allehedly
    I like the look
    and i like the extra light they provide in the ditch
