    Looking forward to your review! Did you review the prototype ones somewhere in this thread? (Looking through the pages now)

    Yes, I compared them in October, here is the link below. I met with Rigid reps to propose building these back in April 2018. I also edited the previous post to have the link.

    Rigid amber/yellow: See the preproduction prototype comparison here.

    Thanks! Seems the new Rigid lights are going to be the most yellow color out there? Really like the color temp of the KC lights but need to fit into a square hole.

    The original design was for amber but getting the cromaticity window correct and high enough output intensity was a challenge. KC has a significant efficiency advantage with the reflector based design. Using a selective yellow amber filter with high intensity while LEDs provides higher output than attempting to use amber LEDs in the pods.

    Thanks OP @crashnburn80 for the link and review of the selective yellow Rigids. Dumb question...how would it mount to the 3rd Gen? It doesn't look like a direct replacement for the stock fogs. Keep up the great work!

    Rago sells mounts for them to replace the existing fogs on the Tacoma, which are linked in the OP under Pod adapters. Unfortunately Rago pulls their page down whenever they are out of stock, which they seem to be a popular item, so it happens frequently. Here is the link included with the Rigid pods so you can see the product. Note this link is not for the selective yellow pods. Just demonstrating the mount.

    Thanks again! Sorry I missed that in the OP. I'll probably go with the Rigids selective yellow and the Rago adapters. :thumbsup:

    Per Rigid's Engineering Director, they are doing a soft launch on the SAE selective yellow pods, the distributors are actually going to be selling them first. Rigid will start direct sales in roughly 2 weeks.

    Looks like 4WP jumped the gun a bit, Rigid isn't ready to ship the new selective yellow pods just yet. They will be this month, but the vendors cannot fulfill placed orders for a couple more weeks.

    Sweet, got my order in so I don't have to keep checking for a release date. As an aside, I know some manufacturer's run into issues with first runs. Would it be smarter to wait a while or am I going to be ok since rigid has (IMO) a good reputation?

    I was wondering why the other venders weren't advertising yet. Will probably wait for Rago to save money with their coupon code and no sales tax for me.

    They already supposedley had issues on the first run and scraped the batch. The only thing new here is the lens, they won’t ship an out of spec product, so I wouldn’t have any concern on getting some from the first batch.

    About halfway done...
    I wonder if Rigid would sell just the yellow lens? I would think swapping the lens would be fairly straight forward. But I could be missing something

    As long as you are swapping the same optic, SAE fog to SAE fog for example, it is very straight forward. Opening the pod to do so would void the warranty, if that matters. You’d just need to be careful closing it up afterward to avoid leaks.

    I haven’t officially heard if Rigid will be making the lens available independently, I know others are interested in that as well.
