Re: Fog Light Question

Thanks that helps some...Still don't know what to use. Is it possible to change out the bulb to match the headlights? I don't want to change the whole light assembly... They are very yellow compare to the HID's

Consult your owners manual or try google for your bulb type. I have a '14 so mine uses an H11, I don't know what a '12 uses.

4300k bulbs are available in halogen, led, and hid. Halogen will be the least expensive, quality led's will be a bit more and a quality hid conversion kit will be more than that.

Re: Fog Light Question

The OEM bulbs in my 2013 WK2 Laredo were 2504 Halogens (also the same as 5202). You can get an HID Kit but really you should have projectors for HID Bulbs and not put them in Halogen housings.

I retrofitted my 2013 with the 2014 Fog Projectors. The 2014 Fogs take an H11 bulb. I went with 3000K for my fogs but you can go with pretty much any color you like, and match your headlights.

Here is a link to the thread about the retrofit:
