Now that the F150 XB LED fog lights are hitting the streets here is a place where you can share your install, opinions and pictures!

If you still need a set we have plenty in stock - STORE - Raptor Retrofit - OEM HID and Retrofit HID headlights

Direct Bolt in for 2011-2014 F150, 100% plug and play

For 2009, 2010 trucks you will need the drivers side fog light bucket from a 2011+ truck for these to be compatible.

Here is an excellent write up for the install by artnagan -


It took 30 mins.

Tools:

Ratchet, flat head screw driver

Passenger Side:

- Turn your wheel all the way to the right for easier access to the fog housing.
- Unplug the light and remove the bulb
- 3 bolts hold on the fog housing on the bumper. 1 on the bottom, 2 on the top.
- Use the ratchet to take them off. They are not hard to reach. You can see them clearly. (Unless you have massive arms)
- Once the whole fog housing is removed unscrew the leveling/beam adjustment screw and remove the spring.
- Then take the flat head screw driver and pop up each tab on the sides of the fog housing to release the actual fog light.
- Next, put the new fog lamp in its place. You can't mess this up.
- Put the supplied black plastic piece that the screw screws into in just like the one on the old fog light(the old one is white). You can't mess this up if you just mimic the old fog.
- Put the new spring in just like the old fog.
- Put the screw in through the bottom, threw the spring, and through the top. Very easy. SIDE NOTE: I used the original screw. NOT the one provided. It would not screw in easily. The old one did. I am guessing it's because the end is pointed unlike the screw provided which is flat.
- Next, go look at the wiring harness. Have the plug that comes with the new fog and figure out where the ground and where the power will be in relation to how it will be plugged in.
- Go back to the new fog, remove the protective black covering on the ends of the wires, slide them in the plug in the same way you figured out how in the step before.
- I would plug the light in on the outside of the truck and make sure the light works before fully putting it back.
- Last, put the whole housing with the new fog installed back in the original spot.
- Very last, Plug in the light!

Driver side:

- Turn the wheels all the way to the left for easier access.
- Repeat the exact same steps as before.
- The only difference is that there was a black covering over the top two blots that i just folded back. Other that it was easy as pie.

I have a few pics that I will post. That being said, you really don't need them if you just follow the steps.

These are available in amber, correct?
"no"

You can get a yellow film over them, but as of now, they are NOT being offered with an Amber LED.

I haven't installed them yet and probably won't since it is below zero in MN right now. But I did hook them up to a power supply at work and they have a nice cut off. They seem really well made. Now for the temperature to warm up so I can get under my truck.

just google morimoto xb fogs. It doesn't have to be on an f150, as the optics are the same for all xb fogs.

I'm actually eating my words atm... I was adamant that these would out do the rigid versions, but rigid really surprised me with the new fogs. Either way both lights are insanely good for their given purpose. Had i kept the OEM bumper I'd definitely be showing off a set of these!

A little surprised that didn't come already put on. But I guess it gives you the option to try it out white first.

I removed the whole fog lamp housing (only held by 3 screws) for easier installation. I am reusing oem springs and screws I had to modify the connectors that came with the new fogs, since the alignment tab inside the connector doesn't match up with the factory one. I tested the light and it seems very bright. will post pictures of finally product later
