    Anyone have any take-off fog lights from a 2000 Chevrolet Tahoe LS? The lenses on mine are busted out(I know, shocking isn't it? :rolleyes:) and I want to replace them with working units.

    I'm open to aftermarket items as long as they fit. I thought about LEDs but decided against them, too complicated for what I want to accomplish. If there are any recommended aftermarket parts that would be a good choice, I'm all ears. . .

    you can find some good stk replacements on ebay for under $30 with free shipping and that's for both lamps.

    I replaced mine with LED pods and it was very simple and easy to install, I could even use the stock mounting bracket. Just pair the wires to the stock ones and they even work with the stock fog light switch.

    I did that on my denali and it worked great, but keep in mind they are no longer "fog lights" at that point and are now "off road lights." The aiming is completely different.

    That being said the factory fog lights in stock form are basically candles in an aluminum foil cup. Not very effective...

    Do you have part number/source for the LED replacements? It sounds like they're a fairly simple replacement/install and if so, then I might as well upgrade to LED. Been wanting to upgrade anyway so why not. . . :cool:

    I would 100% go this route next time. Fogs with a cutoff and serious output would be sweet. High output bulbs in the stock fogs just bleed light everywhere. It would be real tough to get a projector to fit in the rectangular housing on the escalade though.

    Wish it had the nice round ones like the z71 and denali bumpers.

    Obviously these are round so slightly different than yours but should give you an idea about how its done.
