Easy LED Fog Light Upgrade
How To Install LED Fog Lights Using ICI's OE Lighting SolutionsBy Dan Sanchez
LED lights are a popular upgrade as they utilize less battery amperage to illuminate the road ahead with dramatically reduced heat. One of the most popular LED upgrades are the fog lights located on the front bumper of many vehicles. Most three and four-inch LED lights will fit in those areas, and using ICI's OE Lighting Solutions kit will make it easier to upgrade your customer's truck.
We looked on as ICI upgraded the factory halogen fog lights with a set of Vision X LED lights. The upgrade is made much easier with ICI's OE Lighting Solutions bracket kit (PN LBKT18CH-H) that fits 2007 thru 2014 model GMC Sierra and Denali 2500/3500 HD pickups.

ICI offers a variety of light mount solutions to easily upgrade a variety of make and model pickup trucks with LED lighting. This installation will show a GMC Sierra pickup being upgraded with a set of Vision X 4-inch LED fog lights.
In this GMC pickup application, the first step is to remove the factory splash shield that is accessible at the front of the vehicle's inner wheel well.
The rear of the fog light is now accessible, and the factory harness can be unplugged from the light.
Remove the factory fog light by pushing against it from the inside to release it from the retaining clips. Make sure to also hold the fog light on the outer side of the bumper to prevent it from falling out.
Carefully remove the three factory bolt inserts from the light pocket.
Insert the ICI mounting bracket into the front of the light pocket at the front of the vehicle, and use the two bolts and nuts to position it as shown here.
A third bolt hole must be drilled. Use the bracket as a template to mark and drill out the hole and remove the bracket from the pocket before drilling. Once the hole is drilled, reinstall the ICI mounting bracket and secure the bolts and nuts.
Then install your aftermarket LED fog light and secure it to the bracket. ICI recommends using a 4-inch round fog light. A Vision X (PN XIL-UM4040) is used in this application.
Connect the wiring harness and reinstall the splash shield. Repeat the process on the other side and the installation of new LED fog lights is complete
