Not liking the cutoff or lack thereof with these SAE fogs. I'll wait and see if they come out with a V2 in a year or two. Was really hoping to get something to match my Squadron Pros.

Check out the rest of the review in post #1 and the BajaDesign SAE fog review in post #976

Picture was taken well above the "cutoff" with arms extended over head. there is no exaggeration in this picture.

In short, BajaDesigns cheated the system to get SAE certified. Lower lumens and a half-arsed attempt at making a cut off line just to join the "SAE game" but they were the last to join.

don't @ me

Yikes. I'll keep my Philips bulbs for a while then. I do enjoy my Pro S2 ditch lights from Baja, but of course for offroad only.

Definitely a very informative Tacoma world thread that was posted. I currently have the rigid SAE pods and it's almost a necessity to drive with my fogs on to supplement the illumination that my headlights lack. I couldn't even imagine driving without my fogs based on how poorly the OEM headlights project. I was thinking about switching to the Baja's however it looks like I'll stick with be my rigids.

Sounds like you need to get some HID's in the low beams, the cutoff from the factory projectors is excellent, so you can have great light and not blind oncoming cars. It made a huge improvement.

don't @ me

The Baja Designs Squadron SAE does not have a sharp cutoff but these lights are SAE compliant. They illuminate the greatest area possible within range.

These aren't the lights for you if you're searching for the sharpest cutoff. These do illuminate the maximum area possible and are one of the best options for fog or poor weather use.

This image capture was taken from your BajaDesign SAE reveal video on youtube.

The capture is even taken above driver level and above the headlight beams of both cars.

There is SO MUCH glare and i assume you aimed the fogs correctly bcuz you even include an aiming guide with your "SAE" fogs.

How would you feel if you were the driver on the opposite side of the stop light?
