    Hey everyone, I am new to this forum, and looking for some advice/ opinions on my Jeep. I recently installed a new Smittybilt front bumper and connected / mounted my OEM fogs into it as directed. My concern is that now that the aftermarket bumper is installed, there's no "splash guard" piece in the space between the bumper and grill. This now leaves the back of my fog lights (connection), and wiring exposed to rain. Should I be concerned, or is there a way/ mod to cover them?

    Welcome! For the wires you can protect them from abrasion with some protective wire wrap and zip ties. Some aftermarket bumper instructions trim the OEM plastic shield for the remaining space between the bumper+grill. Generally the back of the fog lights are designed for exposure to the elements but getting caked with mud or damaged by debris can be a concern. Send a pic of this space to enable the forum members to make suggestions.

    Welcome to the forum.

    As aggrex suggested. If you can post a pic of the area your concerned with. Many after market bumpers and just as many fog light mounts. A pic would really help.
