I believe these are the OEM fogs which puts out 1179 lumens.

The SR-M SAE fogs that are available on Rigid's site are not the same ones that are put in the OEM fogs on the Raptors from the factory.
Those are special made for Ford and are built according to Ford's specs, which is why they are so hard to find info about online.
The important thing to note is that they are not the same as the ones listed on Rigid's site, since the ones are Rigid's site are better and brighter than the ones that come stock in the OEM bumper.

Do you guys have a wiring harness that connects the upgraded lights all to an aux switch? I have never bothered to use the fog light switch on any vehicle. I'd rather flip an aux switch. Plus, I don't want fog lights, I'd rather replace all 4 OEM fog lights with something for off-road.

Of course they do. You'll need this...


You may want to consider this harness while you're down there upgrading the lights anyway. Puts all connections in one location giving you 7 usable wires to connect vs 6.

Do you have any info (such as lumens) on the Ford OEM lights? I'm trying to decide between all of the options and it'd be helpful to have a starting point.

...I used to have the Rigid Dually D2 Driving beam pattern on my last pickup, and they were awesome!

Can anyone share details on the Rigid Radiance Scene lights? I absolutely love the amber backlighting but I fear the actual light output of the main LEDS is poorly focused. Is this a flood/scene style light? Or a driving/spot combo? Their advertisement is pretty vague.

I'm definitely upgrading these fogs. Does anyone have a good comparison or reason to select Rigid, Diode Dynamics, or Baja Designs? I really like the 2x 2x1 mini fog lamps for their looks, but am likely leaning towards 3x 2x2 style lights for the additional output.

Thanks!

I found my answer about the Rigid Radiance Scene lights. As cool as they look, their light output is not very useful for me. It's effectively a flood light with no aiming. So if you're rock crawling at slow speed, or parked and need a work light -- these would be great. If you want to use them as a fog light or a light on a back country road, then there are better choices out there.
