You would need an H11 HID kit for the fog lights with a relay harness and canbus fix. As for the Speaker LED fogs those would fit as well.

I thought the fogs used a different bulb than h11. H 16 is what I read

On the 2014 models they changed it to H11.

I just wanted to make sure you read this forum post, it deals more with the opening on headlamp modules.

Is the canbus fix required for fog lights when installing the xtreme or volt kit on a 2012?

Yes we do recommend the Canbus fix and relay harness for the Grand Cherokee on the headlights and fog lights.

Re: How-To: Fog light HID kit in 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee (pic heavy)

I'm resurrecting this thread again as I'm close to pulling the trigger on doing an hid conversion to my low beams and foglights on my 2012 grand Cherokee Laredo (Altitude ). For fogs, I was looking at the 8000k 35w 5202 hid kit from retro-solutions and for lo beams 55w 8000k h11 kit.

Has anyone actually installed the retro solutions kits on their wk2 and can provide any feedback on the installation or quality of the kits? I've emailed Todd and he's been very helpful so far in pointing out everything I need so far. It sounds like it will be a direct plug and play. Any insight would be very helpful!!

As stated before, this is a GREAT "how-to" write up. I would have never attempted it myself but did it this weekend. Too minor suggestions using hind-sight. I used 1/4 inch black plastic rivets from the universal bins at True Value with a Phillips head screw insert (.24 cents each) They worked exactly like the OEM rivets which I did buy to have on hand but returned for a refund yesterday.

And I ordered "Capped" HID bulbs. The capping helps greatly with focusing the HID beam and not annoying on-coming drivers. I used them before on my Ram truck fogs and was happy with them.

"How-To's" like the OP's are a tremendous help. I just ordered a set of TYC headlamp units and am in the process of assembling the material to install projector BiXenon HID's in the next few weeks.
