'14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

Just thought I would share the pictures of my '14 Summit with VLED VX3 5000k H11 fog light bulbs. Going into it I wasn't sure how the output would be as I had doubts if the two LED bulbs could utilize the projector housing correctly considering it was designed for a halogen bulb. To my surprise the output is excellent! Extremely sharp cutoff and very even distribution. They have 5000k and 6000k color temps and I went with the 5000k hoping that they would be a good tradeoff between the very white LED DRL's and the 4300K white/yellow factory HID headlights.
I couldn't be happier with the bulbs! Enjoy the pics!






Wall output shot comparing the VX3 LED compared to the stock bulb.


Another wall output shot with all the lights on including the HID headlights so you can compare all the colors.


LED DRL's and VX3 fogs only.


LED DRL's, HID headlights, and VX3 fogs all on.

Re: '14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

What all was involved with this installation and how long did it take? Did you need to purchase additional resistors or was it plug & play?

Plug and play. As simple as removing the factory bulb and putting the new one in. No resistors or anything additional needed. Not sure on other models, but with my Summit I was able to just lay on the ground and reach up and change it from under the bumper just in front of each wheel there are some pretty big openings. Install time for both sides, I dunno 10 minutes?

Have you tried them out at night yet or only during the day? You know we all want to see the nighttime results!

Yeah actually I have had these on now for a few weeks atleast, but only now got to posting about them. Im very happy with the results! I would say they out shine the originals by a large margin, but they definitely brighten the road up close to the vehicle and fill the void from close to the vehicle, then to where the HID's really start to light up the road. They are more or less a cosmetic upgrade to get rid of the yellow look and have them more closely match the factory HID's and LED DRL's.

Re: '14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

The specs says 2800LM per bulb. That's much brighter than the stocks which I believe are around 1300LM per bulb.

If so, this might be my next purchase in lieu of the Philips X-treme Ultinon LED bulb.

Not really sure, but so far so good and it clearly states "safe for use in projectors" right on their site.
Also, as far as brightness, I can say that I was able to drive at night on a completely dark road with just the fogs on. Can't remember if I tried doing that with the original bulbs.

Re: '14 WK2 with VLED VX3 fog light bulbs

Geez, this jeep is getting expensive. Ive already purchased various accessories and I havent even taken delivery yet! what a good problem to have.

If you get a chance, take some night time photos of what they look like and how bright they are

How is the color match with the stock 4300k HID headlights? I bought some of similar design (not vled) that were 6000k andthey were plenty bright but also too much blue in them that made the headlights look to yellow. Not looking to change headlights are these close in color? I saw the pictures but hard to tell with pictures sometime.
