    Great, I need them to serve as fogs as I have other lights in grill and roof rack for truly dark conditions. Sounds like the KCs are the way to go then.

    Purchased! Can't wait to get these installed. We've already had several days of harsh winter weather here despite it being so early in the season.

    Through the grille grille, or through the bezel (as opposed to through the fender well)?

    (I haven't had the "grille" off yet, so I don't know what all is easier to access (if anything), with it off.)

    Oh not through the wheel well? I'm not sure I understand how to install them through the grill.

    2 screws, push pins. The grill pops right out. 2 more push pins for the air damn in front of the radiator and those come right out. Now you can just reach right in and undo the 1 screw that keeps them in.

    For 3rd gens fyi. Forgot these go back to 2012. I'm sure it's close to the same though .

    I was so ready to order some new fogs but now that BD is bringing out something SAE legal in a few months I'm going to hold out and see what it is before purchasing anything.

    I’m also quite interested in what they will come out with.

    In other news the amber Morimotos are supposed to ship next week.

    @m603holden did you have to adjust your G4's any or were they ideal right out of the box?

    Does anybody know if the stock TRD offload fog lights can be adjusted?
    Watching guys removed them (YouTube) it looks like it just takes 1 screw...not sure how much adjustment there is with that.

    Thank you as always for providing these unbiased reviews! My apologies that we couldn't get those G4s to you soon for testing, but I'm glad you found some that you could use. I shared this with our Product Development team and am excited to hear their thoughts. We are always looking to improve on what we have now!

    Hey folks! Sorry I went MIA. Between work trips, then the holidays, and some personal stuff, I got pretty behind. Anyway, I'm back in action.

    I can't guarantee anything, but if we can garner enough interest then I would be able to ask for approval for a group buy. This wouldn't be until probably early January, but I'll create a mental note of how many folks I have that are interested in them! And if the GB doesn't work out, I'm still always willing to help our the fine folks of TW :thumbsup:

    Speaking of being MIA, if I missed a question here, please ask me again! You wouldn't believe the number of alerts and PMs that I came back to after less than two weeks of being "offline". I tried to catch all of them, but I am sure I missed some.

    Pretty sure there is an adjustment screw on the bottom for beam height.

    I recommend changing one light at a time, adjusting the new one to match the beam cut off of your existing OEM unit, then swap out the other one and adjust it to match. Far easier than changing both and having to refigure it out.

    Do not need to remove grille, or at least I didn't. Just use a piece of masking tape to hold screw to a stubby Philips screwdriver. I did not attempt to adjust aim though. I did not want to remove grille because I recently had the radar sensor aligned, not sure how sensitive that system is.

    Do not under any circumstances do it through the wheel well, I wish I had never watched that youtube video.
