I finally got to install my @Baja Designs bumper pocket fog light kit this. morning. Everything was super easy except loosening the T40 screws on the underside of the bumper. Luckily, my Ford Dealer was super excited to see a 1st Edition roll up in the service bay and they graciously loosened the screws for me. It looked like they were painted with the bumper and it took two technicians to loosen so they didn't strip the screws, but they got them out! That's really the only issue I had.

Everything on this kit was super straightforward and easy. I wired the SAE lights to Aux 6 since it's easy to flip while driving and put the spots on Aux 5. Again, the upfitter option was so easy it actually makes me want to add more accessories!! Such a great feature on this Bronco. We tied the extra wire to the crash bar to ensure it was out of the way of the front wheel as well as keeping wires invisible. There's also plenty of space under the hood to tie off the extra wires without getting in the way.

All in all, I 'm super pleased with both the function, look, and ease of install with these Fog Lights.

We ran the wire from the px side in front of the bumper using the skid plate connection point as a reference (coat hanger helps here!!)

Kept the extra wires in front of the wheel well to prevent any rubbing. The top of the crash bar has holes that you can zip tie to.

Plenty of space to drop the wires down to get to your fog light pocket (again, coat hanger helps!!!)

Easy tuck in of extra wire by battery. No heat or moving parts here.

Again - so easy and happy to have these upfitter wires just ready for you. Grounding points here as well.

Great Job - Have a 2 Door Outer Banks w Heavy-Duty Modular Front Bumper reserved for my Daughter and was wondering how to install fog lights.

Question: Did your Bronco not have a factory Fog light switch nor wire harness since your Bronco came also with the Heavy-Duty Modular Front Bumper?

I reviewed the Baja Designs web site and Bumper Pocket Fog Light Kit instructions and yours above and its an excellent upgrade.

Thank you

Hey there. No. I have a First Edition and fog lights aren’t an option. I do have the upfitter switches so I had already planned on using those. They also provide regular switches if your Bronco doesn’t have the upfitter.

This looks pretty good, the kit is growing on me more and more. How are the ambers? Have you had and fog or heavy rain to test them out? Curious what the brightness is like on this set up. I have S2 Pros as ditch lights and they’re amazing!

Looks great, I didn't know they were shipping. Is there a reason you mounted the sport lights upside down. No disrespect just curious if that's how they must go. The lens are directional, outside lights aim outward.

Those look pretty good. Report back when you have had them out on the trail at night. I am curious if the beams/lighting zones are effected by the fact that they are recessed in to the bumper. Probably wouldn’t effect the spot but I do wonder if the bumper enclosures blocks part of the SAE/wide cornering beam?

They are so bright!! I’m not sure how to rate them but they certainly brighten up the road in the rain/fog(although it wasn’t that bad). I haven’t aligned them properly but also haven’t had any issues with illumination. Hope that helps?!

There’s only one way they can mount and the faceplate was installed upside down from the factory. I didn’t want to try and flip it in case they were sealed some how. I also didn’t think you’d see that except in my pictures 😂.

I’ve seen videos from Baja about them being user serviceable to change out the lenses. If you cared to, it shouldn’t be too much trouble to flip the face plate around.

There’s also a discount for Baja on this forum. I got 10% off. Without Diode Having a bracket, I didn’t like the way their solution looks.

I’ve seen other threads with people saying the brackets aren’t sold by themselves…you should probably call them to get in writing that they can sell the brackets later, without buying the whole kit.
