    Or get a Baja Designs sport kit and outperform the OEM Rigid fogs as well as the Rigid SAE kit. I guess it depends on whether or not you want to run your fogs on the street or not.

    Thats my point exactly. Unless you are dead set on OEM in terms of performance per dollar its hardly a conversation.

    If you are gonna go with the Rigid SAE kit (465673), shoot me a PM, I can get them for you for less than $350. I can't do anything for the dealership version though.

    Get Baja Design fogs with the driving combo lens. The Pro’s are $250 less then the dealer wants and will way out preform. They have saved my ass more than once on dark roads or fog. But if you just want them for looks try to get a used pair.

    The Rigid kit that I had referenced is though. My point was that you have to establish your usage profile before you can determine which light is the best. If you're dead set on running a fog light on the street and into oncoming traffic I would never recommend anything other than a SAE kit because you'll blind everyone you meet.

    But as you stated yes... Technically the two light options mentioned are apples and oranges, but the question is worth asking depending on how you'll use the lights.

    I can source 465673 kit for under $250. Pm me for details. Definitely more output than the TRD pro version. I also like to stick my yellow rigid covers on occasionally too.

    No need to pay a premium. Get the $159 Cali Raised fog kit. I have the amber pods kit and they’re great.

    Nice to have a Rigid lifetime warranty though and SAE approved which was the deal breaker for me especially here in California.
