Hi all.. New to the forum... My name is Gary... I just purchase a 2012 Overland. This is my 4th Jeep... and was wondering if there is a brighter replacement bulb for the fog lights without burning something up? Is the lens glass or plastic? How are they changed out,also do they make a led bulb for the backup lights? Thanks

Will these fit in a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland fog light? OEM bulbs are only 24 watts will these draw to much power?

I believe 5202 is the hid kit for the fogs. I am not sure about melting, discoloring etc of the fog lense or if it is glass or plastic but i would think plastic. There is a thread on here that details exactly how to do such, u just have to search for it. Once u get used to the site ull know where to look for things.

I don't want to change the light assembly just want to replace the bulb with a better brightness.

Most of the "LED Bulbs" for the fog lights may give off a 'brighter' light, but probably won't help to project actual light down the road.

The problem is that the LEDs simply aren't in the same position as the OEM incandescent bulb filament.

I originally upgraded to the PIAA 530 LED fog lights and they were better than the OEM fogs.

Then JW Speaker came out with an even better LED fog light and I upgraded to those.

I originally paid $200 for the PIAA LED fog lights, then mounted them inside the OEM housings (including the height adjusters). I would part with them for $150 for the pair if anyone is interested.
