chrysler 300 fogs possible fit?

I was doing some searching for projector fogs and found replacement chrysler 300 fogs that look like they would fit and also use 9005 bulbs which should provide more output than what we have stock. The brackets also look like they would fit...aside from swapping out the connectors it looks like it would be a direct fit.

2005 - 2010, Chrysler 300 fogs
TYC 19-5829-00 Dodge/Chrysler Driver/Passenger Side Replacement Fog Light : Amazon.com : Automotive

Some better pics of these fogs here

Found these too...

Wk2 fogs
TYC 19-5829-00 Dodge/Chrysler Driver/Passenger Side Replacement Fog Light : Amazon.com : Automotive

for about $60 for the fogs, $10 for a couple connectors and you can pick whatever color bulbs you would want...thoughts?

Re: chrysler 300 fogs possible fit?

I don't care for the halo on the fogs but the projector would be nice. I'm sure they are halogen projectors though. In order to put HID bulbs in them safely, you would have to open it up and cover up the slit (it allows some light above the cutoff shield for road signs because halogens don't have as much light.). then again, they are for fogs and might not have that slit at all.

Re: chrysler 300 fogs possible fit?

Isn't this just the housing? Do you have a link for the connectors where the bulb plugs into? Sounds like a fun project. Please keep us posted if you do it.

Not a fan of the halo either. I would bypass it and either remove them or cover them up. In halogen form they should still produce more output than the crappy setup we have now.

Even the 9005/9006 versions should be much better.

The 9005/9006 connectors are pretty easy to find on ebay or amazon. Would just need to splice in the connectors.

A DIY. I assume the projector housing is the same. Looks like it would be pretty easy to remove the halo.

I'm digging this idea. Would make a real nice looking DRL having some LED halos around the fogs. It'd be unique and I think would look nice.

My concern would be that we have some very low power foglights, meaning we likely have very small wiring to the fogs. Would probably be one of those things that really you'd need to run a relay and a new power line for.

Re: chrysler 300 fogs possible fit?

if you run hids they use less wattage than standard bulbs with the exception of startup

Thanks for testing them out!! Any pics or reviews in change of brightness?? This should provide us many additional bulb options also. I will prob go back to some french yellow bulbs in fogs.
