Ok I know cjpp offers some factory like front marker fog lights that look and function pretty well. And, maybe that’s the best option...

However I love the look of the big fog lights in the grill (either upper, or lower like) the late 60’s models or the previous gen cobra. Any one have suggestions?

As a person who hates the look of those big bug-eyed fog lights, please don't do it. ;-)

I'd put in the little square yellow Raptor ones if I could get them wired. I assume you could replace the light switch with a GT light switch, but my Mustang expert says he doesn't think so. I don't think he knows, but I don't know how to find out. Mechanics don't pull off that dash panel much.

If you want round - a good choice - look on the interweb for classic Cibie lights. They're out there. I considered them, but I love the look on the Raptor.

Thanks. Yes you can replace the factory switch with one from the GT. See below kit and video from CJPP. I like this kit and in the absence of anything better I’ll prob go with it.

CJ's Low Price:
$498.99

WUT!?!?

I'm thinking Graves Auto Salvage.
I know, it seems high. It is a turn key solution though using factory parts which I like. They looked very bright int he vid when he turned them on and as someone above pointed out, it wouldn't affect airflow.

Thanks for sharing that CJPP install vid. I hadn't seen these before and they do appear to be high quality. Haven't really focused on fogs yet but if I do this kit would certainly be in the running... Looks like you could pretty easily make your own wiring harness and get the headlight switch from TASCA...I do like the fogs integrated into the existing housings though...

Just checked out TASCA OEM parts and couldn't get into the Mustang OEM stuff for some reason would only let me into the Accessories section. However, I did look up the 2018 F-150 "Auto Headlight Switch module with Fogs/dimmer functions and it's $29.57. So the 2018 switch with fogs may be fairly inexpensive as well?

GC - good point even though they are using a factory switch, still like adding aftermarket stuff - however, lot's of folks will like that - won't have to change the "Bambi" mode via FORScan...I see a lot of that on the F-150 and Raptor forums.

Unless you race it, the air flow is a non-issue, maybe not even then.

The text at the CJPony website says,

"In addition, the fog lights will remain ON when you activate the high beams."

So the system is not fully engineered. There should be a relay off the high beam to turn off the fogs.

I actually liked that part. I hate that they go off when I switch back and forth.

You might like it, but it's quite illegal.

True enough.

I was tagged on a state inspection in Virginia decades ago for the problem.

My state now doesn't have inspections, so it is unlikely to ever be caught. I just think CJPONY offering a commercial package should have the relay. I think it mentions in the video also that the fog light switch will not light up when the fogs are on, another shortcoming.

I have asked my Mustang Genius to view the video and see if there is opportunity here. I'm not interested in CJPP's lights. The key issues for an install are power and switching. CJPP may have pioneered a good way to do it.

Agree with you 100%. Yea, that button not lighting up when the lights are active would really bother me. There is a way to do that, no doubt. Why its not included is beyond me.

Sorry somehow I missed this. You know, its not bad looking. Maybe a bit big... and they may interfere with cooling. I want some fogs though... Its beginning to look like the CJPP kit is the best bet.
I find uploading images to this site never seems to work for me. And only got this to work by changing the URL to IMG by hand.... really annoying

Anyways, I was intrigued so did a quick photoshop of inboard 67' style fogs.
