Default LED Light Bar

I live in Montana and last summer it was pretty sketchy driving through the mountain roads at night even after installing the new Morimoto headlights! I have a small light bar on my truck and it makes a world of difference! If I could see a bear, moose, elk, deer or even a damn jackrabbit coming from a ways away, the brakes on the Vette can handle a quick stop vs. evasive maneuvers when you can't see something until it's too damn late!

Has anyone out there ever (or would be willing to) retrofit a fog light housing to hold either a single small light bar or a combination (to get a driving and spot light combo) of LED light bars in them?
I am thinking of a combination of the 4" or 6" Midnight Edition E-Series Pro:

and the 6" Midnight Edition SR-Series Pro:

If it can only accommodate the 4" (either driving or spot optics) that would be the route I would try and go.

I hadn't thought of that. I was thinking of starting out with upgrading the driving lights to get more "Ditch" light. I'll try to take a look at our base model and see if there might be something there.

Thanks for the info. I'm looking for something much, much more potent than sticking an LED bulb into a halogen housing that will blind people!
This would be similar a LED light bar and would have to be turned off for oncoming traffic.
I spoke with Mike at Vettesthetics and he said he has done something similar in the past. I will try and get something going with him on this and let people know how it works out!

they donít blind people when you turn them off. Like your gonna do anyway.
Leaving the Grand Canyon at 4am. I turned all my lights off and just had my fogs on and it light up like it was daylight. Being able to see everything on the side of the roads was great.
But I SEE what your going for. Iíll be interested to see what ya come up with.

I'd just do a big *** bar in the front opening. Maybe make it removable so if you plan to track it you can keep it from blocking air flow. Just cruising you wont have any issues.
