Hi there,

Does anyone know of inexpensive fog lights for an ARB Sahara bar?

They come with IPF branded lights with a surround style bracket to mount them and then the plastic filler fits in on top of it.

Ciao for now
Andrew.

Perhaps measure the ID of the hole they fit in and start legging it around the supercheap/Kmart/Autobarn scene with a tape measure...

Hey Andrew,
Please post if you find something that fits. I got qouted $330 by ARB for theirs. Bit steep if you ask me.

Cheers,
Mick.

Hi Mick,

Yep - the $330 from ARB is very steep. Even the $33 per insert for the covers is daylight robbery for a moulded piece of plastic.

Not being one to fork out another brass razoo to them, here's what I've done:

1. Autobarn supplied a blister pack kit of 2 x Narva Compac 100 100mm fog lamps (plus sundry electical pieces).

2. replaced the standard "U" shaped bracket with two small brackets (one for each side) on each light

3. made the new bracket from a $5 piece of 20x25x1.6mm aluminium about 40mm long. Used the 25mm sides for the bolts to the left and right of the lights and the 20mm side to sit behind the plastic/rubber insert of the Sahara bar. It has two screw holes which I more or less used to screw some self-tappers into the aluminium. Had to take out the insert first, force the light through the flexible plastic/rubber stuff, screw the new brackets to the insert, then replace the insert

4. finally, wire up the fog lights as per usual

Total cost: $129 including the self-tappers. If you have some aluminium angle floating around, you could save the $5 - for that matter, if you're in Adelaide, I have some left over and you can admire my work.

Ciao for now
Andrew.
