You might run into flickering. We did when we installed them into the factory wiring. We ran a Rigid wiring harness and used the factory wiring for the switch.

I had no problems. Just cut the wires and connect them added heat shrink and they work great.






It was very smoky out when I took the photo.

I cured the off flicker problem by wiring in a 6800uf 25v 105c capacitor in parallel on each of the fog light harnesses when i was splicing in the rigid connector
pay attention to the capacitors polarity you want to get it right

if you cant find the caps locally there are several vendors on ebay selling them

LOD mid here too
if you are willing to have the led mounted a little deeper in the bumper the lights are much easier aim
its just a matter of adjusting the bracket so the lights sit a little deeper in the bumper, this gives a much wider range of vertical adjustment

Where did you get the Marine Foam - can you tell me the brand and where to buy it?

I'd like to do the same to protect my harnessing a little more....

Boat Owners Warehouse. It is way cheaper than West Marine.
