    Ok I get your point
    No tools,
    2 color LED
    Who has installed LED anything correctly their first try?? :005:
    Last point sadly is false the fog light housings have zero cutoff. Ask me how I know :D

    This is LED in stock housing above.
    Morimoto below

    You can see how the cutoff works in the above two photos. They don't scatter light like any LED bulb in the stock housing.

    For the installation of the Morimoto LED you remove the stock fog light housing. Remove the bracket that will be reused on the new fog light housing. Then install the new fog light with brackets. Make sure and aim them. Youtube is a great source for more info on that part. Enjoy:cheers:

    Newer style LED bulbs have a great cutoff line when you orient them properly in the housings. The LED chips don't throw light 360. They are 180 degree apart. It's the HID and cheap LED's that throw light everywhere and blind people. Been using mine for over 6 months and never been flashed and set them up against a garage door. I have a similar pattern to yours at night.

    Ok couple first for me.

    Now your fog light orientation would be horizontal. I'm guessing that is depending on the Rebel/Warlock front bumper.

    Sport trucks like mine have Vertical. Terrible for LED in the stock housing. So I went with Morimoto pictured.

    Yours look almost projector like in the stock housing. I need to research somemore to find a better answer.

    Found a couple of my aiming photos when I first installed them. This is the Morimoto LED aimed on my 7" lifted Ram.

    Last photo is just a quick pic halfway through the install of the new Morimoto LED fog light

    Ok so with the Rebel/Warlock this are OEM LED sealed fog lights. It does not look like the bulb is survivable unless modified. Lamin-x would be the cheaper solution it appears.

    Does an aftermarket Rebel/Warlock fog light exist?

    Seems strange if they aren't replaceable bulbs but I cant find squat about them? Maybe I can try a Rebel group?

    I would need a better detailed pic to see what you're working with. Actually my neighbor has a Rebel. I'll snap a photo of his to confirm.
