Fog Light Bulbs for 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

I've been searching high and low for replacement bulbs for my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland. I've tried using the H11's L shape but the bulbs are straight. I want to replace the yellowish original ones with more of a brighter white light. Anyone have any ideas where I can find some replacements .

I bought mine from XenonDepot, a forum sponsor here.

2012 fog lights are NOT H11 bulbs.

They are PSX24W, also referred to as 5202.

The OEM fog light bulbs are weak/yellow incandescent bulbs.

Most people either use LED replacements OR just go to LED fog light replacements. There are a lot of options out there now.

The best option (and usually most expensive) are the JW Speaker 6145 LED fog lights.

I've also heard that Morimoto also makes a pretty decent fog light replacement.

Personally I dropped the money on the JW Speaker 6145 fog lights and have never regretted spending the money.

I bought cheap LEDs on Amazon being Christmas and all for other folks as well. Just dropped a grand on rims and tires. The bulbs work fine and were $25 or so

Here's the latest pic from my GC.
I installed LED H11 bulbs in my low beams and had to aim them, so I turned on the fogs also to get a pic with both fog and lows lit up. The H11 LEDs in the low beams are pretty concentrated in this pic, but they seem to have had some 'burn in' time because now they spread out more left and right.

The first generation LED bulbs that came out just didn't put out the power needed to be effective. The LED bulbs being sold now put out plenty of power.

My wife questioned my sanity when I dropped $300+ on LED foglights until the first night we drove with them on.

The H11 LED bulbs are from V-LEDs (they don't carry that model any more, they are fanless), if I had to buy H11 LED bulbs now I would go with these:
H11 LED Headlight Kit | H11 LED Upgrade

The fog lights are the JW Speaker 6145 models.

Re: Fog Light Bulbs for 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland

I too got the LEDs from xenondepot.
1) great color output
2) bad fitment-- had to remove o-ring to allow bulb enter the housing.
3) overall, very happy with them (except the 0-ring issue).
