Yes the H11 fogs are great, they put the 5k extreme hid's to shame. I went thru xenon depot. Don't remember what I paid but they usually have a percent off coupon floating around on the net

Re: Fog Lamp Replacement Guide: 2015 Overland (PIC HEAVY)

I have those same exact bulbs installed in my jeep. No issues so far (knock on wood).

Maybe the connection just came loose or it got jarred going over a bump. These things should last far longer than a month.

Re: Fog Lamp Replacement Guide: 2015 Overland (PIC HEAVY)

I threw a set of Xentec 35w H11 w/ relay harness to power them up. I've been running them for years on my cars they make a decent kit. Cost me all of $30 for the bulbs and $10 for the harness

XD was backordered when I wanted them so I went Amazon. They came in. Phillips packaging. I switched bulbs and it's the bulb not wiring. For now just went back to stock

I'm currently having the same problem. One of the bulbs started flickering not it just isn't working. I've had them installed about a month. Kinda ticked off keeping in mind I spent way too much money on these stupid bulbs.

Re: Fog Lamp Replacement Guide: 2015 Overland (PIC HEAVY)

For those replacing your fog lights with LED bulbs. Please listen to my 2 suggestions. This is from recent experience.

1 - You do not need to drill or cut the plastic "rivets" holding the wheel well cover to the front bumper. They are re-usable. You basically pull a bit at the rivet (I have a rivet remover). As you're pulling, insert a sharp object strong enough, and thin enough to fit through the center hole. This will release the hold the rivet has behind the bumper. Take it out and reuse it when you are done.

2 - This is not my first rodeo replacing fog light bulbs to LED's. I've used some fairly cheap ones on amazon that were VERY bright on my previous vehicle. Too bright..but I liked them. I bought them again this time around and they were VERY bright before I put them in the housing. Once in the housing the light output was not anything nearly as bright as it is outside. It's because I bought these:



I'm no scientist, but the convex lens at the end of the LED bulb itself beaming it's light to another convex lens, being the glass fog light cover on the car cancels each other out in a way. It's difficult to explain but it did not work due to that. My car has projector type fog lights so it didnt work like it did in my other vehicle without the projector style lens.

TL;DR - don't get LED lights with convex lens at the end, if you have projector style fog lights.
