    So far I’ve bought 2 sets of lights online that don’t fit, both sellers claimed that the manufacturers used the factory dimensions. Both times the mounting points of the lights were of by 1/4” or more. The mounting points are not flexible at all and the lights won’t mount up.

    I’m not looking to buy expensive lights like diode dynamics and the likes, they’re nice but out of my budget, just something reasonable that fit for under $100.

    Has anyone bought any that fit?

    I still have my OEM lights, I had added LEDs and both got water in them, one side more than the other. The reflector is a bit harmed in one side, the other side is still good. I was very happy with the performance of the LEDs, but one burnt out getting hit with the water that penetrated. I could actually reuse the OEMs, but I thought I could do better.

    Definitely don’t run replacement LEDs in your halogen fogs. You end up with excessive glare blinding others and making fogs ineffective in fog as well as poor performance. The OEM LED fogs will be far higher performing than replacement LEDs while maintaining proper cut offs and are only $105. See post 724.
