Finally, going to pick these up in 10 minutes. Just saw the ad and called. He said they're 5.5" x 3.5", which is perfect for the diesel bumper opening. I'll need to fab up a bracket and get a wiring harness, but I couldn't pass this deal up.

LInky no worky.

If they're like BHBurban's dually, that'll be cool on your truck1

Yeah, I figured it wouldn't be up long.

They were New in Box set of GM fog lights with wiring, fuse, and switch. I don't need the switch, so I'll probably sell it.

GM 999451

Here's an ebay ad for the exact same thing. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Chevy-GMC-Truck-Blazer-K5-Suburban-Clear-GM-Fog-Lamp-Package-Light-999451-/271201917792

Good scoop! Especially for NOS!
A tip! If they have the glass lense, DO NOT run an incandescent more than 55w. The lenses will shatter from the heat!
How do I know this? Hmmm! (Ooops!)
HID's should be fine.

Especially since I got them for only $20! That's why I jumped on them so quick. I don't mind aftermarket, but if I can get original GM for cheap, I'll do that every time. Just seems like a cleaner way to do things.

Thanks for the tip about wattage. What do you think about 55w HID's? Don't HID's run hotter than normal incandescents. These say they're for halogens, so I might just stick with that.

Not sure about HID's, & how hot they run. MeanGreen, &/or others would be the knowledgeable guys.

I think 35w 4500k-6000k would be good enough, IMO. In those little housings 55w would be too focused.

Yeah, I agree. I want to check with Baron just to make sure he doesn't think there would be an issue. He's kind of the lighting guru round here.

I'll get pics posted as soon as I can. Just need to find some time to get these projects done. I have to fabricate my own brackets for them, but that shouldn't be too tough.

Hey Joseph, in your sig where it says "My hand-built muscle truck.", you should make that into a link for your truck. That's actually what I thought it was. Kind of like what I did where it says "The Yukon" in mine. If you need help, I can show you how to do that.

Haha thats a great idea man, but i dont have much of a build thread or any threads dedicated to it, other than the motor build.

HIDs WILL NOT fit inside those housings, I had ones similar to those kicking around here and the HID bulb is just too long to fit inside the housings. Otherwise nice score!

Little more than $20.00, but I'd like some of these, mounted into factory valance. About 1/5th the cost of the Recon's, though!
