    Washing my truck today, I noticed my passenger side fog light was cracked. So, I’m on the market for either an OEM replacement or aftermarket, but was curious if anyone has aftermarket fogs and how they look on the truck. I saw morimoto has an LED assembly and the LED pod brackets. 2017 1500 Sport, vertical fog lights.

    I like my Morimoto XB vertical fogs. Not the absolute brightest, but they are definitely more than adequate, and put the light where it needs to be. There are so many "my HIDs/LEDs in the factory housings work fine, there isn't any glare" opinions out there that, quite honestly, I am not sure I believe. Any LEDs/HIDs I've seen in factory reflector-based housings not designed for them have glare that blinds oncoming drivers someway or another.

    Not my truck below, but it is a picture of them installed from one site that sells them. Can be found for anywhere from $200-$250, depending on the site. Some try to sneak in outrageous shipping charges, so be wary of the ones that claim to be lower.

    I did the pods - very satisfied and very bright. What I like the best is they are adjustable to get excellent side lighting in addition to front lighting.

    Damn, i didn’t even think of adjusting the pods to give better side lighting. Pretty good idea!

    Where did you get your brackets for the LED pods? And which pods did you use?

    Ya they are only 1000 lumens so they don’t shine far but I guess they had to do that to be DOT certified. Be nice if they double the lumens
