RIGID Pod(s) Fog light installation

Writing to see if any of you guy have had luck getting the dually pods installed in your factory bumper fog light location. I have gotten the brakcets from rigid, and am having next to an impossible time getting the lights to fit in the factory fog light hole, regardless of the spacing that I give the lights. I dont see too many of the 4th gen rams running this setup, however I have seen a few so am inclined to figure this out...

There are three bolts on the fog housing, this isnt rocket science but for the life of me I cannot get these to fit appropriately. Any and all help is welcome, thank you in advance

What year is your truck...I know rigid advertises that they fit 2010-17's. Mine fit no problem when I installed them. Did you get a connection so you can run them to the stock fog light switch?

You want them for fog lights?! Glare will be bad for oncoming traffic. I used mine for aux high beams. I just through bolted reinforcing strips behind and in front of a couple grill stringers and fastened it to those. Electrically, they are powered through a relay straight to the battery, except I also installed a switch in the circuit too (2 wires through the firewall) so I can disable them in urban driving. The relay is activated from a connection I made to the high beam circuit - doesn't draw enough to bother canbus and create the flickering headlight light problem.

Rigid does make a DOT approved cube fog light that has a wide, flat spread of light. It does not bother oncoming traffic.

2014 Laramie 2500 4X4 Crew Cab, Granite Crystal/Silver 68RFE arrived 03/18/14.

ah - they'd be fine - guess I'm perpetually upset by all the idiots driving around with overly bright ill aimed lights.

I should have clarified - I want them IN the fog light location, not for fog light use. I will be using them to supplement (when appropriate) the awful projector setup that these trucks have from factory until I upgrade those eventually.

Got the brackets figured out, I had to reverse the U bracket on top of the pods themselves to lower them for more clearance through the bumper, all is mounted and will be wired up shortly

Well hopefully you like it. I would suggest leaving them a little loose till you have them all aligned.

As for lighting I would get the plug that plugs into the factory wiring. Thatís what I did. Was pretty simple

Looks awesome - I’m going to wire them up with the rigid harnesses separately so I can run them as needed with all my other lights off. I’ve got amber covers on mine and it looks great with the DRLs and are blazing bright as you know.

For now my factory dog bulbs remain plugged in and are zip tied up out of the way, probably never will be used again but don’t want any light out codes popping up
