We received some nice LED lights which you can use in offroad bumpers.

The one is a DRL which fits into a Jimny, but you can also build it into your offroad bumper. Maniac uses the Non-LED version in some of their bumpers.

The next one is a square (ish) LED light which attach with 4 Bolts.
The easiest to instal of them all. 18 watt CREE LEDs

The next one is a yellow (ish) round light. It has a very strong bracket, made from 3mm stainless steel. The light is 89mm in diameter.

Pieter, would any of these work on the Vigo front bumper, in place of the standard fog lights?

So I installed these in my own bumper.

They work great for DRL. But they work too well at night.
If you put them in your bumper to use for DRL they must be switched off at night. They are brighter than your dims and they have a wider angle, not only to the side, but up and down as well. Thus they tend to blind oncoming traffic.

If you do want to use them at night you will have to use them with brights.

So they are too bright for dims, but as stand alone lights, not as bright as spot lights. They are in between.
But they will work great for night driving as they have a nice soft, pure white light. Oncmoing traffic is the only problem.
