    I have searched my ass off and can't locate the thread(s) with the BD fog light install tips. The instructions kind of suck. Which way do the brackets mount? Photos anyone?

    Depends on preferences really... I actually installed mine backwards but prefer it because the lights sit further forward in the pockets. However this does cause a issue not allowing the center squadron to be rotated up because it hits the bumper on the bottom... but since I use the center as a fog light it works out for me. [​IMG]

    Like I stated though I believe mine are reversed but the other way the lights just seemed too far back for me. Be careful with the stainless hardware that bolts lights to the brackets it's very easy to guall the threads and seize them... tighten very slow.

    I finally got around to installing the lights yesterday. Thanks to the above photos the install was quite easy. I did install the lights to the brackets before they went on the truck. Not sure if that helped or hurt. The light output from the Unlimited kit is incredible. On my 2011 Raptor I ran all Rigid lights. I had a 40" Rigid light bar with 4ea D2's. I was never really impressed with the light output. The BD Unlimited kit easily exceeds what the Rigid setup put out. I was expecting to add additional lighting but now thinking I may not need it.
