Re: Hid in Foglight Projector

you will need canbus cancellers.
also the Motorcycle one is 1x Ballast and 1x Bulb. Keep that in mind, you need 2 kits.
I run 5k in my Durango, same fog projectors for the most part compared to the WK2.

Re: Hid in Foglight Projector

I got my HID fog kit from XenonDepot. The install is pretty easy in a 2014 Limited (just pull off the lower fascia). You will need to use canbus harnesses but I didn't use the relay harnesses. The pic shows 3000K lamps.

Re: Hid in Foglight Projector

Halfdeaf those lights look great! Can you comment on the actual fog performance compared to OE?

Re: Hid in Foglight Projector

The HIDs are way brighter than the stock halogens.

Due to the design of the enclosure, there is a sharp cutoff of the light projected by the fogs, which was less noticeable when using the halogens.

Because of this design (and using 3000K lamps) there is very little back-reflection from the lights when actually driving in fog.

The Phillips 3000K bulb exhibits a slight greenish tint compared to say, PIAA Plasma Ion Yellow bulbs...

I've always put HIDs in my fogs, but I think the next go around I'm going to try those Phillips LEDs that Scott threw in

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.

Halfdeaf: Your Jeep looks great! Thanks for sharing the picture. The 3000K really stands out and is great in low visibility.
