Day time driving lights

I have a 2012 Overland with HID headlights and the JW Speaker fogs. They match very well in color. The daytime driving lights are yellow compared to these. Do they have a bulb replacement for the driving lights that will match?

You need some Cree 6000k leds.

Re: Day time driving lights

Already saw it Thanks. Which one do you like best for DRL
Should a Projector bulb be used in the DRL position?

Same question. After reading the threads I'm still not sure what the best option is for quality and easy install? Thx.

both are fine for a white DRL that matches xenon color.

both are plug and play and both are recommended by me who are using both styles

the first pic is a side by side comparison of both bulbs.

makes no difference they have the same output.

Re: Day time driving lights

This bulb you recommend says it not compatible with the 2012 Grand Cherokee. Is this wrong?

Have you decided on which LEDs you're getting. I'm thinking these.

They only have 4 diodes in each but the lumen seems high. Must have something to do with them being the XB-D type I quess... Others I have looked at have 60 diodes. I'm a little confused on why the ones with 60 are not as bright as the one with only 4... Will 20w be enough?
