Morax, did you get the 5K or the 6K?

The 5K seems to be the right color match to the HID. The 6K appears to have blue tint??

Hemi really likes his so I'm sure yours will be fine. What do you get Hemi ? The 5 or the 6K ?

That's another reason that I bailed. I started wondering if it was really worth it.

Thanks guys

Those were probably HID fog light bulbs! I can't imagine spending that kind of money on 'fog lights.' They are so tiny and do they really do much, anyways? I have some big assed Piaa driving lights on my Off Road Xterra, and hell yea, those suckers are expensive! But they light the logging roads up like daylight! For the Overland, I just wanted fog light bulbs that would be the same 5000K white light that would match the HID headlights. I have accomplished that with the Philips H11 bulbs, and for a reasonable price, too! I got the 5000K bulb & it matches perfectly! For install, I found it was easiest to just crank the wheel over, remove the fasteners holding the fuzzy wheel well liner & gently pull the liner away so you can see the bulb & retainer. Took about an hour to do both! Enjoy!

Yup, that's what I was planning to do as well, Besides the fuzzy liner, is it a simple plug and pray thing?

Yes, they are plug & play. It's an easy re & re when you can see what you are doing! Just go easy removing the plastic fender-well fasteners so you might be able to re-use them. However, the rivet fasteners will probably break off (mine did) so you will need plastic pop rivets & a gun for two of them on each side. Like this kit:

Re: Fog replacement in Canada

I wonder if I could use a regular pop riveter with those plastic rivets. I have the hand tool.

Did that kit come with the correct size of rivets Hemi.

Never even knew they made plastic rivets

Gravity, I have heard you can't use the regular (metal) pop riveter as it will just strip the plastic rivets. It sucks, 'cause I have 2 of those I could have used! The kit does include the pop rivets you need, and a various assortment of others. It did a bang up job and atleast I now have the tool & extra rivets for any future jobs!

Well that figures. Getting ready to place an Amazon order anyway so might as well add that. But yeah I agree at least I'll have them for future work.

Thanks Hemi.

It shows these bulbs do NOT fit a 2014 Jeep Overland!
