Baja Designs Squadron-R SAE Sport LED Fog Pocket Light Kit

THESE DO NOT FIT THE RUGGED RIDGE VENATOR BUMPER without modifications

I had to modify the Rubicon brackets and still it was a tight fit. The sport model beckets are useless.

is it sloppy, absolutely. however its on tight and wont go anywhere and you cant notice from the outside. ill go back when the weather is nice and trim the top of the brackets so it sits flush.


The finished product. the plastic inserts do not align properly. I think some washers placed under the lights will lift them up just enough to align properly however I think they look fine without.

Added Hella Valuefit Driving Light Kit. Are they the brightest or as fancy as Baja Design? No. but they look great and put out plenty of light so I'm happy.

I did cannibalise the wiring harness to make it work with the aux switch and I like the little accent lights that work as DRL.

The above post was a lie

Installed the Maximus 3 sports bar this past week. Very happy with how it turned out and the unique look it offers. Not a whole lot of functionality yet but I'm working on it.

Install was reasonably straight forward. It does require you to drill into the bed which I was fairly apprehensive about however the holes made seem like they could have been put there by the factory if I ever choose to remove it so in the end it wasn't too bad.

The fitment could be a little better but I suspect that with a little elbow grease and effort I could close the gaps a little more/completely.

I opted top to purchase the bed lights and break lights with the kit. Wiring is a bit of a challenge as the instructions leave it up to the installer for routing. Currently I have the wiring running along side the tubes and held in place by some black tape. in the end, the only real way to truly hide the wires is to drill in additional hole in the tube, run the wires inside, then make a further modification to the either the bed trim or the bed its self depending on the rout you want to take. I think the bed trim may be the way to go since that can be replaced fairly easily if I ever choose to remove it.
