Default Reducing Fog Light Intensity For Street Use
Looking for solutions to reduce the intensity of my fog lights for street use. The end caps easily screw off each individual light, so are there cheap filters that can be inserted for street use and removed for offroading?

There may be something premade, but if you can only find clear lenses that fit inside you could cover them with some vinyl tint. Contact M&R and see if they have replacement lenses.

Can the M&Rs be aimed low enough for street use?

I was wondering that too. Is there any adjustability at all?

Crazy idea, how about leaving them off unless you really need them? Don't be the jackwagon that drives around 24/7 with the aux lighting on.

The headlights can use a little more output, that's why I want to use these, and asking if it can be aimed low for road use. If I wanted to be a jack wagon, why would I even ask?

This probably doesn't help you since you already have your lights, but I use VisionX lights. They have a dimmer function.

I think rigid has diffused lights that are approved for street use.
