A performance OE-style fog light is LONG past due.
Today's aftermarket options are based on old OEM designs. The problem? Stock performance from 10 years ago doesn’t cut it. Some of the most well-known offerings are a DOWNGRADE in output from stock halogen.

With dozens of innovative features, the Diode Dynamics SS3 pod set a new standard for fog light output and performance. With maximum durability and quality, they’ve been put through their paces in serious off-road conditions. They’re also proudly built here in the USA.

While others are busy copying the SS3 overseas, our engineers have been working hard to create the first OE-style fog that provides a true upgrade in performance.

Introducing the ELITE LED FOG.




• Patent-pending optic delivers extremely sharp and wide output pattern – meets SAE F3 standard
• Multi-die automotive emitters for up to 5 times greater output than halogen
• Amber backlight feature standard
• Unmatched durability and quality, with the same validation testing as our Stage Series lineup
• Integrated aim adjustment and molded brackets for perfect bolt-on installation
• 8-year warranty
• NOT IMPORTED - ASSEMBLED IN USA

Available for 2009-2021 Nissan Frontier this fall. Stay tuned for more details!

Super cool, cant wait! Anyone have an estimate on how much these may cost?
Our Elite Series LED fog lamps will be right in line with other market leaders offering OEM-style LED fog lamps.

Stay tuned for data and pricing soon!

Are they completely/fully made in the USA, or are they simply assembled in the USA with parts made in other countries?

Great question!

Varies a lot by product. Generally, the housings are cast in China or Mexico, due to the low volumes. Brackets are cut and coated in USA. Hardware is USA. PCBs are China, hard to make those in US due to environmental regulations these days. Electronics are from global companies, some US , Korea, and a lot in Malaysia.

PCBs are impacted due to the EPA. Super expensive as a result, only military and high-volume boards are done in the USA. For the castings it is volume. We've looked for US suppliers but most US shops won't even quote us due to the volumes. With tariffs and freight, we'd love to get everything from the US if there was a competitive source.

We employ over 35 people here in production, so we are doing as much as we can to add value in the US!
