Re: 2011-2013 Foglight upgrade Option

It would be nice if they could supply an adaptor harness, rather than having to splice.

Yeah it would be nice it they did have the adapter, but remember the span of years covered for the JK the bulb changes over that span.

I don't see it as a deal breaker.

If you really had to you could use butt connector to make the connection but it is always nicer when you don't have to modify the vehicle at all.

The most important part is that the bolt in and adjust just like the stock ones do.

Since these are LED's how would this compare to the OEM fogs since all I here is that LED's don't have the same light output.

Thanks!

Edit: The 2011+ Dodge Charger fogs aren't the same as those on the 2011-2013 JGC's are they? If they are these look like a neat alternative to. One of the modes is a steady on when you initially wire them.

No, you don't have to take your bumper off.

Slide underneath the front under one of the fog lights, there are a couple large plastic turn-buttons you rotate 90 degrees and they come out, then there is one bolt that has to come out (10 or 13mm, I can't remember which). Then you just pull the plastic panel away from the bumper (I used a bungee wrapped around the sway bar to hold it out of the way). Then you reach up and unbolt the old and bolt in the new.

You will have to aim these. Chances are, if you haven't checked, your factory fogs aren't aimed properly anyway. My driver side was low and the passenger side was high. There's a phillips set screw on the back side (as you can see in the initial pics).

The cheap LED 'bulbs' are no comparison. I currently have PIAA LED 530 fog lights and they are better than the OEM bulbs. The JW Speaker LED lights are beyond compare. They don't just make fog lights, they make LED headlights and a LOT of the Wrangler owners are switching over to them.

Oh, and yes, these are the same as the Charger fog lights (not sure which model years).

EDIT: I don't think those Whelen units would be very bright. I don't see a heat sink for the LEDs which means they are not high power like the JW Speaker units. The housing for the JW Speaker (and my PIAA) lights are a heat sink for the high power LEDs inside.

So $330/pair.
That's reasonable.
If that is indeed the final price...
I'm ordering just as soon as I can.

So what bulb style do we need? What the difference between the two.

The GC uses the 2504 bulb socket.
