    Rigid for the win! As a newbie I will save this thread and look forward to your next video entitled "Light Bar Wars"!

    Sorry, I overlooked your question.

    I assume you mean stock Fogs in something other than a Raptor since they don't have stock foglights?
    So if you mean say a Lariat F-150? There will be a big difference because just like the SAE lights in this video, they need to be very toned down to be street legal, so the OEM ones would be too. I would doubt the stock would be as bright as the Rigid or Baja.
    As far as temperature, I would guess stock Ford ones would be closer to the yellow temp.
    I'm sure there is a meter you can get.

    I was wondering about the color temperature of stock Raptor LEDs headlights.

    I'd like to add a set of SAEs to compliment stock headlights (so I can run them both on the street), and was wondering whether BDs or Rigid will match the color temperature better.

    I found a meter for that.

    I actually had a meter I picked up to measure the output of the lights in the video, but both were so bright it wasn't capable.. lol

    Great video, John! Thank you for pulling that together. I bought the Rigid kit from you a few months ago and have always been curious how the compare to BD. Installation was really easy with your custom wiring harness and well-built brackets. I use the SAE all the time and the other two on occasion. Thanks again for providing great products and being a source of useful information (videos, clear installation instructions, etc.)

    I have the Rigid SAE and it seems to be a pretty good match, but in that video it sounds like the BD SAE is a bit of a cooler temp color than the Rigid SAE. In my opinion, the factory lights are a pretty cold color (not quite blue-ish but definitely not yellow at all) so if you're looking for just an SAE light then BD 'might' be a closer match.

    Yeah, it’s interesting because on the SAE, one had less yellow, but on the Off-road lights it was the opposite.

    I love my rigid radiance lights I got from John a few months ago, Install took a little longer than I thought( 2 days) but that was just me, fogs on switch 1, ambers on 6 no problem with "too" bright from on coming drivers, so I love them, call them my unofficial running lights
