The black housing foglights look great and are like $55 shipped. I don't use FOGs either since I haven't done the MFS rewire yet for the fogs. I don't like the look with empty holes there. Now if it was all black on the inside and smooth it would look better. Just my opinion. Like some sort of insert to block off random wires and jagged edges

I agree that having something in there would look better. I just don't want to spend money on fogs that I won't use and will eventually be covered with block off plates. I'll figure something out.

I installed driving lights in the holes of my Kaminari fascia. They were wired to come on with the highbeams. I found that more useful than fogs.

Well, I just ordered some Eagle Eye branded headlights. Let's hope these ones stay together and don't leak. I know MyNeonSaysHi has had good luck with them, so I'll give them a shot.

Awesome, hope they hold up well for you. I have only had good luck with the Eagle Eye brand.

The new headlights are on.

There's a pretty substantial gap at the bottom of them.

Other than that, they seem alright so far. Let's see how they handle rain. The driver's light is pointed really high and the passenger light is pointed at the ground. It's kind of silly how far apart they're aligned. I'll have to adjust them at some point.

Yeah I had to adjust mine.

I have no gap on mine. You need OEM headlight gaskets.. or something else is off on your car. I think the OEM gaskets help seal out moisture too

The gaskets on these were pretty bad. I'm sure that's the issue. I should have swapped over the gaskets from the old Depos. They were better and I still have them...somewhere.

Those still suck. The OEM ones are the best. I just checked MPX and they just sell the Depo ones :( $20. https://www.modernperformance.com/produ ... -and-bulbs I cannot find the part number for the Mopar gaskets. But they are called "Headlamp Seal Welts"

Yes. Sorry, I should have been more specific. Hope this helps!
