i bought mine from discount auto parts. They were cheap halogens, but are warrantied and all i could afford for now. Befor i bought them the dude i know from there took them out and let me try to see how they'd look. gunna try and put them in this weekend, when i do i'll post pics in the pics thread.


I'm going direct to the battery (going through a fuse of course) and putting it on a rocker switch, so i dont have to bother messing with the car's fog light system or anything... my only dilemas are i gotta take out the front bumper and remove a plastic plate where i'm gunna put them.... that, and where to put the switch, i dont wanna cut any of the interior =/ might just put it in the carpet between the driver seat and the center console, that way it's in hands reach, but i'm not messing with any of the interior.

I would put the switch in a place that can't be seen without really looking for it. Maybe under the steering column. I would make it look like it was meant to be there. Just mt thoughts, not my car. lol.

if you buy one of the cheaper kits, i would not use the factory wiring, it's often just big enough to meet the power requirements and you'll get corrosion/burn marks on the connectors.

You can find some good ones online.

instead up grade the wiring and use better terminals

also, use a relay.

Yeah, and be aware that you may need to cut your bumper if you did not have factory fog lights installed. I looked at them this weekend, and there are two seperate bumpers for our cars. One with the cut outs, and one without. So if you are ok in cutting, then go for it. I am not going to bother with it... lol.

Even if you cut, they are going to be funny looking. Look at this...



If you look close under the bottom of the fog light, you will see a slight groove... Now look at this one...



In this one, the groove is gone... I think Dodge used two different bumpers for the Avenger. I am not saying you could not add fog lights to your car, I am just saying it would be hard, and may not look stock, unless you buy the other bumper, which is about $230 from parts.com.

Hope this helps!

Yeah, that is a cool way to show your support to members that post good stuff! I have actually left you some rep before! You can see who has left you rep, and who left it for in your control panel. That is the top left link on every page you view here. I was actually going to leave you some more rep for manning up, but I have to wait for a certain period of time.
