You see them on F1 cars and others. So when travelling at high speeds those behind you can see you well in advance in fog. Almost as bright as headlights but red. Every SRT has them (two red lenses in your bumper) but they are only activated for export rigs to meet legal requirements. Some Bahnburners (Audi etc) have them activated in the US but SRT does not. Found a couple of kits for activating them.
I ended up buying the rear fog light kit from Taillight Solutions. A pretty easy install, and they look great!
They are more expensive than other options, yes, but the quality of the harnesses is really top notch. Plugs, wires, and heat shrink tubing are much better than the flimsy ones you see on the ricer sites. They also use flex loom for additional protection, and are cut to the perfect length for our Jeeps.
Just my thoughts. Whatever kit or method you go with though, please zip tie the wiring well away from mufflers and exhaust pipes!
Did that easy install include taking off the tail gate trim panel? I just saw that on the Taillight Solutions site on that same page. I am pretty handy with stuff luck this, easily damaged if not handled properly is somewhat concerning...
No- you don't have to remove bumper trim. The stock reflectors have a small clip that you can reach from under the bumper and remove easily.
You do have to remove the tail lights to get to the wiring. Two trim clips per side, pull straight back, and they are free from the body. The hardest part for me was getting the wires unplugged from the stock tail lights. They have some sort of locking clips that were difficult to remove without damaging them (the clips, not the tail lights).
Other than that, you just need to route the wires so they don't get too close to exhaust components.
The fitment of the fog light housings can be a little snug to angle in, but once you carefully get them in place, they snap in firmly with good wire clearance on the back side.
