I honestly think they need to be moved in a bit more towards the center and pointed up a tad...it makes the front end look bow-legged. But the fogs themselves are nice.

Yeah thats what I was thinking. I am using the bolts that hold the front valance on the bumper. I was going to put them in towards the license plate but I was thinkin that there wasn't going to be enough room for the lights to shine because I am using stock bolt placements. As for the angle, how do I point them straight?

Pretty much directly below the line between the grill and the headlights.

Nice lights BTW

How do you put it there? I know there are some bolts that are near the license plate but it doesnt clear the plate at all. Did you drill holes in the bumper?

The car came with fogs and the holes were already there.

The drilling part is easy, but please measure before you drill so it looks good.

Looks good to me. I don't like how they are angled down so much, but I'm ok with the location of your fogs. I have mine mounted way out toward the edges too, and I like it. I use my fogs mostly for lighting up the ditches and mailboxes on country roads anyway, and I think they are more useful out farther.

I had them inside with the old commando bumpers. Worked pretty well. I had to drill a hole for them in that location.

With the newer bumpers I just used the existing hole for the bolt that holds the air dam to the bumper. I had to use a longer bolt, but it works well I think, and I actually like the looks with the quad headlights. Looked strange when I had 7" rounds on there though, didn't quite line up with the headlight.

Thanks for your input guys! Yeah when I took them off a 245, and put them on my car the brackets were not 90 degrees but more like 110-120 degrees for the angle. How would I make the fog lights aim straight instead of down?

I would say the best location for them is for the bolts to be exactly under hte gap between the two headlights so that the centreline of the fogs is the same as the centreline of the headlight area

Yeah thats what I was thinking, what would I be drilling the holes through? The plastic and the metal?

Yep. It's Al so it should be a pretty easy job.
