Would you say the squadron sport are okay to use for daily driving?

Definitely not - they are blinding to oncoming traffic. The Squadron SAEs are good for on-road DD use though.

Squadron SAE lights are the only ones actually legal to use on the road, even with on coming traffic.

...And then, only if adjusted properly. If you blind people with any lights, you'll get popped.

And only if these are ran in a factory fog light position. Can't have these on A pillars and run them legally on the streets.

other states must be weird about running fog lights. In Iowa, you can run just about any fog light (that is properly adjusted toward the ground) as long as they are below your headlight. Never heard of anyone getting pulled over or in trouble for that. However, if you run any aux lights (a pillar) on the road, you will get pulled over.

So you have the LED lighting package? How much better are the Baja SAE than the Mopar LED fogs?
The amber definitely cuts through fog/dust/snow much easier than the stock LED fogs, but in terms of overall brightness, it's not a huge difference. Most of that is for the SAE certification though- the similarly priced non-SAE certified Squadron Sports/Pros are light cannons.

Thanks for the response. I’d still like to be able to use the fogs driving so the regular squadrons are a no go (already have a set in the bumper).
