    Sorry no vids, but when driving at night flicking them on and off makes a huge difference.

    Those are the correct ones! Note those are actually selective yellow output achieved with an amber color filter, the light color is not amber. The KC G4s are actual amber output. The Rigid Selective Yellow SAE pods are by far the highest output non-white LED fog.

    As someone who owns the G4's I dont think I'd want anything brighter for street use.

    Thank you! Any plans to test the Baja designs SAE pods when they come out? Any expectations for those?

    Absolutely! This thread has been updated with the release of every major SAE Tacoma LED fog. I’d expect their 5000k white version to be among the best, Rigid is too blue at 7000k+ IMO and a pod platform has greater output capacity than the G4. Entirely all speculation of course. The selective yellow is much more complicated, see my earlier comments:

    These production lights are identical to the prototypes. I’ll ping Rigid and inquire as to why.

    Couldn’t be more identical, they are the exact same light.

    Correct.

    Because if you are trying to make yellow from white light by using an amber filter, but instead start with 7000k+ bluish light. Blue + Yellow = ...

    Not LEDs like this thread covers, but nice Ultimate H9 Subaru fogs! :) You’ll have to share your impression once it starts to get dark in several months.

    Edit: For those wondering what is going on with Subaru fogs, you can check it out starting in post #392 here.

    So on an actually related note, I don’t think I’ve seen this discussed yet.

    581430B9-33BE-449C-BC69-94CDA59993D0.jpg

    Dropping by my wife’s work I parked next to a second gen. I noticed on the way out that the third gen fogs sit significantly higher. What effect would that have on beam pattern?
