My new RAV4 doesn’t come with fog lights from the factory. I’ve seen previous year’s XLEs with fog lights and I’m kind of jealous! Anyone know if it’s worth the trouble to get aftermarket fog lights installed and if it’s even a meaningful difference in road visibility?

My Prime doesn't have fog lamps from the factory, so I can't advise how good the factory fogs are, but frankly, I've never had factory fog lights that added meaningfully to visibility. My plan is to add Diode Dynamics SS3s to mine instead, using a set of factory fog lamp housings I got off eBay. I intend to do driving lamps instead of fog lamps on mine, but Diode Dynamics offers both options.

I figure since mine doesn't have fog lamps from the factory that I'm going to have to do some wiring anyway, so I might as well get as much light out of the deal as I can.

My 2021 XLE gas came with fog lights, yes I have used them a couple of times. Yes they made a big difference in my opinion on one particular journey, it's like most accessories on a vehicle once you have had & used them a few times it's hard to go without. Myself not sure if I would buy a new/used vehicle without fog lights again.

look up the laws in the area you drive in california you can have 4 light on at all times which is two head lights and two fog lights. rear fog lights can only be on during fog. keep in mind that you have to adjust the lights and use a wall at a 25ft distance the cutoff of the fog should be 4" lower then the height of the fog light itself.
