i would like the yellow fogs on with lowbeams with oem switch and spots activated with highs
When you pull off your bumper save the fog light harness. You can run 40A cubes safely on the wiring.

FYI, the old Squadron Sports were too bright for in-traffic use and the current upgraded Sports are nearly Pro level output and will be way to bright for traffic use.

But SAE-Rated Fogs are coming in 2019.

I’m running four of these in the fog locations.

RIGID INDUSTRIES D2 HIGH & LOW LED LIGHTS - 50231H

On low setting I’ve never had anyone complain or high beam me on road.

The bar is a diode dynamics ss18 18’’ combo bar on the bumper for spot

I don't get the whole ADAPT thing.. however if you want to have that kind of control...degrees of light are degrees of light and lumens dependent mainly on reflector and LED type. You want a flood/spot/superspot (for 100mph driving offroad :D ).

The D2's provide massive flood and driving. Another small 12''-18'' spot/superspot will provide range.

I don't think diffused is necessary in a front facing light, maybe for rears. I'd only go with the ADAPT single if that was my ONLY front facing lightbar.

neither did i until i saw them in action just the other day.

they are sick, and i plan on using the Amber color as a daytime running light.

either i need a specific split of flood vs spot lights, or i can rely on the adapt for spot lighting and flooding.
i probably wont go for it, but its a cool product.

you did edit this post retroactively no? lol

exactly.

my thought was
yellow fog lights as daytime markers,
spot beam pods to assist high beam at night on road,
and a 20 inch bar in the new powerwagon grill mustache with driving/spot combo.
ill pull out the lower plastic grill applique and recess a 20 inch bar in the grill, mounted on the thuren bumper

I have amber covers on two of my D2's. I guess it depends on conditions but that's all the amber I'd need. IO have separate lo/high switches for both sets of D2's and another set of switches for the main LED bar. Yeah, I'm at work so I'm editing and working lol. I think I've done exactly what you're thinking about.

Let me know if you need any BD stuff. I can’t help with Rigid unless you want what’s on my shelf

I’m almost exclusively a user of baja designs, with the one exception being the rigid sae compliant fogs. They work really well for on road, never had any problems irritating other drivers with them. Excellent beam cutoff and spread.

They aren’t nearly enough for offroad, but sounds like you got that covered with the other stuff!
