    It looked like they could be done from below without removing any bumper screws. Headlights were already out, so obviously that was easiest.

    What do you think they mean by "Selective Yellow"?

    Looks like 4 Wheel Parts now has the Rigid SAE Selective Yellow pods available for purchase!

    See my preproduction prototype comparison here.

    The link is long, so I abbreviated it here! 4 wheel parts Rigid SAE Fog Selective Yellow pods

    Shipping might be delayed if they don't yet have them instock. You can use code "BUYNOW" for 5% off. I've ordered a set to compare to the pre-production prototypes I had to see if there were any changes in tuning to the amber lens.

    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.

    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.
