Opposite here. Paid off the wife's '15 Impala but now working on the truck.

Where did you buy the headlights from Morimoto or Retrofit Source? Did you ever give them a call to see what was going on?

I bought them from TRS as they’re priced better than on the Morimoto site (even thought I suspect they’re the same company/owners). I have not called them but I should. The instructions for my truck have you plug in all the stock headlamp wiring to the XB headlamps but then run a supplied fuse tap to the misc. ign. fuse position. I believe this is to run the ribbon as it’s always on with the ignition. I’m pretty sure the XB lamp receives its DRL signal from the stock wiring as it’s only on with the ribbon when the truck is in drive. I should try and pull the DRL fuse and see if it changes. I’ll call them this week if I have enough time away from work during business hours. Anyway, probably just gave you a lot of useless info that won’t apply to your truck.

Alright kids it's picture time again...

Popped the other fog light in today after work then screwed the adjuster screw into it a little farther than before. Went over to the passenger side fog light I installed yesterday and gave it a few turns farther in also hoping it would be really close to each other.
I then drove over to Walgreens again and when I shined the fog lights up on the wall I was pleasantly surprised they were almost exactly the same height and I think I'm leaving them right like they are.

Here's just some straight on pics with fogs only

IMG_E3843 WIDE.jpg


And with fogs and low beams

IMG_E3845 WIDE.jpg


I then took it for a drive down a dark road and got these pics.
First is low beams only

Then Low beams with fogs

IMG_E3852 LOW BEAMS AND FOGS WIDE.JPG


And lastly high beams (of course no fogs are on)

Here's all 3 country road shots together for comparison

That all looks fantastic! Are you still wanting to go yellow with the fogs?

I'll have to wait and try driving in some heavy rain and or fog to see.

Love them the way they are in clear weather though.

Yeah I love mine in clear weather as well. I haven’t driven at night in the rain or fog yet with my set up so I haven’t committed to changing the fogs yellow either.
