cheap fog lights (1/2 updated)
 
ive been looking for some cheap decent looking fog lights.
i didnt want to spend a couple hundred for some nice lights that im just going to screw up and bash while off roading.

i ended up going to northern tool, there i found some 7" lights with plastic guards (mostly for looks - they arent going to protect the light from flying debris). i bought 2 of them, a toggle switch, and some wire all for about $30.
i put them on last night, and BAM, nice looking lamps for cheap. i dont have to worry about messing up some expencive lights. (also - im a tight wad)

edit: found them online

I checked online at northerntool.com but I didn't see any lights

Not to steal the thread but I'm looking for some nice cheapos fogs too

I know that nice and cheap don't go well together

the guards on mine are a bit different, i will get more pics of mine and my toggle switch and what not tonight.

markc522 02-07-2006 07:14 PM

all right i have pics. someone might want to put them up for me, when i do it the just come up as links.

anyhow, you can see how i ran the wire through the bumper/frame and into the engine compartment, i ran the hot wire to the fuse for the rear wiper (i dont have one) that way if i leave the switch on they turn off when the key is off.
not to bad for the price, and like i said before - i dont have to worry about screwing up a nice expencive set of lamps.

Heikes 02-07-2006 07:29 PM

Is the light made of metal or plastic? They look nice and you can't beat $9.99!!:thumbsup:

the lens is pretty thick glass, but the housing is plastic.
