Ford E450 chassis Redhawk 24B

Hi,
Anybody knows if OEM fog lights are available? There are cut outs for it.
If yes where can I buy them?
Thank you

This is what I did and it can be adjusted to any angle one likes.

If you are referring to my post, absolutely not. I live in one of the hottest climates, AZ, and no problems at all. Iíve had it mounted since 2017. That coupled with LED headlights makes long dark stretches of highway much brighter by not having to stressfully try to look beyond the headlights.

For pictures you might try the little paper clip, choose the pictures you want, then click upload.

That is a nice looking light bar, could you post a link to where you purchased?

I'm wondering the same thing. Did he wire it into a separate switch, so it could be turned on by itself, or into the headlight circuit?

So yes to the spacers. I had to get some plastic ones at Home Depot and it work out perfect.
I purchased the bar from Amazon and of course they recommended the wiring harness with relay and switch($12). I ran the wires inside the cab and have a separate switch for the bar. Because its a off road bar I want to control it separately from the lights.

I just ordered the light and recommended wiring harness. Since it is designed for off road I will run a separate switch in the cab. I think gprapin's idea is really clever, but there will be times I want to turn them on separately.

Did you need to run all wires and a switch? Or was it tapped off of something?

I ran the wire harness and the switch to the cab separately. The led bar is controlled on its own with the switch.

That's great except it must be covered while on the highway, they are not dot approved for highway use and any cop can give you a ticket

That is correct that's why its rated OFF road only. This was my main reason to run a separate wiring and switch so I can control it separately from factory lights and wiring.
