Very sharp looking. Since you were already wired for factory fog lights, was it a simple plug in the new lights to the existing lines/switch or did you have to change something else out?

Look good. Are they. Tighter than the factory fogs? They'd have to be.

I had to get a Starkey wiring adapter from CJ Pony Parts. The original fogs were H11 and the Roush are H10. The adapter was around $26. Works perfect...

The install took about 6 hours or so. The hardest part was making the first hole...After that, just time consuming. The templates are good, kind of a pain to mark.

The biggest issue I have is with the 3m auto tape that comes in the kit. I put it too close to the edge, not thinking that it would squish out very much...Well it did in a couple of places. Still have to finishing cleaning those areas a little better. The other problem with the tape is getting the red backer off once I had them positioned. Some came off, some didn't...

Looking forward to seeing how bright they are at night. The MCA fogs were pretty good, but I was looking for more. If they don't cut it, then I'll replace the bulbs...

They seem to be fairly tight. They are two piece that sandwich the bumper after you make the cuts. Also they use 3m tape...

Autocorrect... Should have said "brighter".

They are probably dimmer than the fogs that I replaced. Also much yellower. I have ordered some LED's that I plan on installing in the next few days. Supposed to be much brighter and whiter to match the headlights...

Not hard at all. You remove 4 8 mm bolts from the radiator area. 6 7 mm bolts from in the wheel well. And 11 (I think) 7 mm bolts from under the front end. Takes about 30 to 45 minutes. There is a video by Late Model Restorations showing the Roush install, but it starts by showing the bumper removal...

I can't send the link thru my iPad.

I see you had the MCA fog lights before. Do the Roush lights stick back as far into the bumper area? I have the Hellion turbo and with the location (behind the fog lights) I had to remove the fog light on the driver side. It stuck back too far and the turbo won't fit. If the Roush doesn't stick back as far as the stock lights I can put the fog lights back on the car - any chance you have a picture showing how deep they go on the back side? It looks like they mount more on the front of the bumper cover compared to the stock lights that are mounted back in the cover.

I don't have a picture but can take and post one in the next few days when I swap out the bulbs.

Just got one with swapping out the crappy bulbs with LED's. Here are a few pictures for you. I hope this helps. The Roush Fogs do stick back fairly deep into the area...

Just finished swapping out the bulbs that came with the Roush kit. They were not as bright as the stock fogs and too yellow for what I wanted. I ordered these from Amazon: Amazon.com: JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright Max 50W High Power H10 9145 LED Bulbs for DRL or Fog Lights, Xenon White: Automotive

They seem to be much brighter and whiter. Here is a pic with one JDM and one of the Sylvania bulb...

Thanks for those pictures - they are slightly shallower than the stock MCA/GT-CS fog light housings but still too far into the space to fit with my turbo I think.
