Lookin' good Gel!
Really like the lower grille. If they make one that has holes in it for the tow hooks that would be cool!

I called a dealer just to get an idea of what 1 bulb would cost on the fogs..

48 bucks - when i told him that he should have asked if i was sitting down.. he said he'd do wholesale on it.. $ 38.68. Yikes.

Looks like I may be trying to source the LEDs instead as well. Thanks for the thread and info!

David at Ablaze grilles was working on a grille to be used with the tow hooks. I am sure if you contacted him he could assemble one for you. He does such great work, everything is either triple chromed or powdercoated. No paint or any cheap materials.

As for the fogs, go with the LEDs, granted I have only had them a couple weeks but love them for $44/pair!

Why can't you with adaptive cruise control is it because of the sensor? Maybe a hole where sensor is located.

Awesome! The instructions are very simplistic so if you have any problems feel free to shoot me a pm. I know I struggle a bit trying to figure out the mounting and how it would hold

The putcos are a direct plug and play and go in just like a factory bulb which entails taking the factory air box off in order to get to the driver's side lamp, unless you have freakishly long and thin hands haha.

Total install time was about 35 minutes (5 on the passenger and 30 on the drivers)
I looked these up on the Putco website... per their website it says they will not fit a 2012 Grand Cherokee?

Here's a quick picture for reference..

It's the stock halogens compared to the LED fogs.

You know, when I first saw the title of this thread I thought it was going to be a picture of a deer wedged in the grille.
