Raxiom halo fogs

So I just ordered some raxiom halo smoked fog lights. I plan on putting them behind a black billet grille and getting the roush lower grille delete.
Anyone who has the raxiom halos have any advice for the install.
Also anyone else running this type of front end?...(pictures if so)

I like the look of the stock front I wouldn't change it, I'm planing of buying the roush chin splitter. It makes it look much more aggressive, I also bought the roush hood scoop unpainted. I'm just waiting to collect enough to paint it and to have it installed and I'll have my front finished

do you guys know anyone who has installed the 13-14 raxiom fog lights on a 2011 GT? are the fog lights the same size? I like the look of the LED lights much better. I could just put the LED lights in the current setup, but I know they wouldn't shine the same...

No they have different dimensions. People still put ls motors in mustangs though. I'm sure you could rig it up someway to work.

That looks nice man. I decided to go with the smoked ones since I'm putting then behind the billet grille.

I had a shop (Mustang Specialties) install the halo fog lights at the same time they did the lower grill delete. These fog lights are awesome and the install wasn't too hard. Hurt watching them cut the stock bumper to add in Roush lower grill delete, but it's totally worth it!

Yeah its not that hard just takes patience. Hardest part for me was getting the bumper off haha. Although I recommend when you wire them up to your side makers to solder in a plug so that way you can disconnect and remove your bumper in the future.

Looks great guys!!! These are definitely a pair of sinister Mustangs and I'm happy to see that you're enjoying Raxiom's parts just as much as I do! Let me know if anyone has any questions and I'm here to help!

I dont think you can do that. The reason being is that the CS, to what i know, dont have the bracket that is behind the regular GT grill that holds the fog lights. However if you can find a bracket somewhere (IMO go to a local chopshop and try and find a wrecked 13-14 gt with a good front end) then you could install them. They might look funny behind the GT/CS grille though cause it wasnt designed for them, the billet grille was hence my decision.

I didnt want the lower since it just tacks on over the stocker. Plus the roush delete puts some nice airflow through the radiator. And im gonna save up to get the LS splitter. I love the way it looks.

Yeah not the best design having it just over top the OEM one but it works for now. Good idea with the Roush lower removal tho

Yea I wanted that Shelby look and wanted to keep the fogs/put in the halos. That was the conclusion i came to. Around the 16th ill probably be putting abunch of new pictures up. Some of the install, some of how purrty she is afterwards, getting those crappy front brake rotors off.

Was it easy to install these raxiom halos behind the boss302 grille? Did you use your stock fog lights to support them? I ordered that grille and the halos but I traded my stock fogs to a friend for the lower fogs so now I'm SOL unless I can pick up some new foglight assemblies (or a cheap alternative if possible) or I can some how rig it up with just the halos? honestly I don't care about them being used for the full fog light only the halo because I'm putting in the roush lower fog light kit. Can anybody help?

Yea, if you still have the mounting bracket for the fog lights they should go right in. As far as the actual raxiom light its literally just an OEM housing with a halo on the inside. When you install it you switch over the bulbs/janky radiator/electrical setup thats on the back of it. Anyway you can always buy a new bulb and AM has the OEM fogs for sale...but you have to buy the whole set up. AKA GT grille etc. Honestly go to your ford dealer parts store and see if they will give you a new LED bulb setup for the fogs.

Oh also, you can splice the halos into your daytime runners and just forget about the actual fog light. The halo itself runs off of a ballast where as the fog light runs off of a wire harness. Hell when I got my halos I ran some juice into the halos just to see how they looked, right there in my lap.

Yeah that is pretty sweet. So just to be clear, I will need to use the gt stock foglights to mount it, not for the lens of the stock light but for the bracket assembly that holds it in place and together?

Go up to the beginning of the thread. Someone posted a video of some dude(who is very long winded) doing the install of the lights and a roush chin splitter. Skip to where he is putting the raxiom fog lights in. you will see the difference in what the LED light assembly is and then the bracket that you need to hang the fog lights.
But to clarify what I said, the foglight housing itself if separate from the bracket that holds it. To put the raxiom fog light in you best have that bracket. You'll know.

Hey sorry it took so long to answer. But when I wired mine to the side markers I cut and soldered in a second plug instead of using the included wire taps just because I like a strong connection and being able to remove my bumper easier. When I remove my bumper this weekend Ill take a picture and show you how I wired mine.

I got them off eBay and just cut them in half and used the male plug on the halos and the female plug on the side marker wiring.

I'd love to see the pictures of how you wired it up because I would definitely prefer to have an easy disconnect for when I remove the bumper in the future.
