    I swapped out my factory fogs for some Morimoto LED Fogs from The Retrofit Source. Insanely simple and quick install.. (it took about 40 minutes total) and since I'm a bit old-school when it comes to fogs, I also got the yellow film to go over the fogs because yellow light actually cuts through the fog.

    I had my first chance to really try them out last night here in Atlanta as it was really foggy. I turned them on and the fog... vanished. I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend these LED fogs.

    Did you do just LED bulbs or did you do the complete assembly? Thank you

    Awesome thanks for the response! I was looking at these... I'm just not sure if I want to spend $170

    There's a Tacoma World discount code on here somewhere.. ("TacomaWorld" I think) I think it knocked them down to $145. Not sure if the code still works, but worth a try!

    Was thinking Rigid but I like the round better. Not sure how to remove the current lights...is it easy? Also, is there any room for adjustment of these once installed?

    Thanks.

    It's *very* easy. one screw and the whole unit tilts out. Installation is the reverse... slide the tabs in one one side and secure the other side with the screw. Adjustment is a screw for up and down. All you'll need is a #2 phillips.

    2017 OR...I assume you go in via the wheel well, or is there a way to attack this from under/overhead? Thanks.

    I put some painters masking tape on my garage door where my low beams and fogs were hitting prior to changing them out. Spray paint on the ground where my tires sit in order to replicate in future if needed. Made it very easy to adjust my Moromito's XB's as they were quite a bit out. No adjustment was needed when I installed my Xenon HID's as they were right on the money. Excellent one two punch with these lights.

    For the ease and the little time it takes, pull the grill and the plastic little side flaps for the easiest install. I tried taking part of the inner fender well off and going in that way but it was just to much of a pain in the ass for my fat short liitle arms.

    I went in from overhead. pop the hood and reach down behind the headlights. There's enough room to easily work. You might want to use a stubby screwdriver for the removal/install.

    I just installed the Rigid D2 fogs yesterday. I was able to do everything by reaching down through the holes in the radiator support frame.

    I agree, in a good way. I would like to see OP's DIY pics.
