Installed: Morimoto XB LED fogs (Type GM) pic heavy

Postby Escape94 - July 26th, 2015, 2:52 pm

My fogs came in on Saturday and I just got done installing them. 20 minutes tops to get it done. Ill have a full install by the end of this week. I need to get some night shots and make sure they are aimed properly. But I will say this: they are bright!

Here's a "before" thread:http://escape-city.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=22609&p=318783&hilit=samsung+led+h16#p318783

here is the TRS link: http://www.theretrofitsource.com/complete-headlight-fog-light-housings/morimoto-xb-led-fog-lights-type-gm-h16.html#.VbWCB1JRHIU

1. here is how the fogs will come packaged, all nice and cool looking
Image

2. crawl under the escape and there you will see two "access ports" to get to the fog lights. Here you will have to undo these three pinch tabs
Image

3. pull the assembly out and the pull the bulb out. I also wiped down the surrounding area as it was a bit dirty
Image
Image

4. pull the black pinch tabs off and re-attach them to the back of the morimoto XB housing. for the third one on the bottom, you'll have to transfer the screw and the plastic parts that are used for aiming.
Image

5. re-install the new housing and connect it to the harness
Image

6. enjoy your new XB LED fogs! :yahoo:
Image
Image
Image

notice the sharp cutoff on my hand, as well as the white light. they are 5500K in temperature
Image

I'll add more night time photos later on

Now something else I have to wait for...on top of tow package, lift kit, servicing...

But great write up, and great pictures.
