I also did SRT fog lights.. wow. Pics inside

I am not the first to do these by any means but I have a feeling I won't be the last either.

Won't do a super long write up on this as there are other threads that already accomplished that.


Back story, purchased the Phillips 6000k kit. Never installed them. Sent them back. Saw these done and had to have them.

I am using the Osram 5000k CBI bulbs and have about 2 hours of driving on them. They are burning in very nice.

Purchased the two SRT LED fog lights and two anti flicker modules on eBay.

Install as everyone says is easy. Took me about 10 minutes per side.

(1) 10 mm nut
(2) 1/4 push rivets (as other have been debating mine were single use only. Replaced with standard 1/4 push pins.

Folded carpet over tire, used a flat head screw driver to pry the plastic clips down and boom. Right out.

Zip tied the anti flicker module up so it wouldn't bounce around and get damaged.

Left the other side in and adjusted them side by side to my desire height.

Yes these are expensive. Yes these are worth the money. Yes they match the DRL. Yes they are pretttty darn close to my 5000k Osram bulbs. They are a little blue maybe closer to 6k as other folks have said.

I would feel confident driving with these only at night. The beam is knife sharp, extends 10 feet or more left to right. Projects about 100 feet of perfectly usable light as you will see in the photos. Mine are adjusted to almost be the same height as my headlights. Maybe a smudge lower. It's a preference.

Factory fog on garage door 10-12 feet away.

Same distance with LED fog

From about 45 feet away. Was backing down a slight angle so pass side looks higher. But on a flat surface they are the same

Re: I also did SRT fog lights.. wow. Pics inside

Da Jeeper, just read my thread I have everything you need listed. Like they said though if you have a '14 then you don't need the anti-flicker modules.


Petey, they look awesome!! nice job!
A couple things though. It may or may not be the case, but it appears your fogs might be aimed way too high. In the pics above with fogs only your beam goes all the way down the street and might even be high enough that the beam would be in peoples eyes. I think the fogs are actually supposed to be aimed fairly low and focus a lot of light not too far in front of the vehicle. I put my beams exactly where my originals were and the cutoff should a few car lengths in front of the Jeep. Yours don't appear to ever hit the ground. Adjusting those is extremely easy. Just need the small torx driver and just reach in there. Don't have to take anything apart.

I'm trying to figure out what I'm seeing when looking at the picture with your headlights on? I see a slightly dimmer horizontal cutoff at the same height as your headlights? If thats your fog beam then yes they are wayyyy too high, that cutoff beam should be well below your headlight beam...not all at the same place. EDIT: I just re-read and I see that you actually did place your fog beam at same height as your headlights. You say its a preference, but thats a preference that will be blinding everyone coming at you. Also, I know cameras can play a lot of tricks taking these kind of pictures, but is your headlight cutoff perfectly horizontal or do they tilt downwards on both sides of the "step" in your cutoff beam?

Here is your picture I'm referring to. I put two red lines in the picture to show what I was talking about. So the upper horizontal line I have drawn appears to be a slightly dimmer beam. Is that your headlight beam or fog beam? If thats the fog beam then it needs to be lowered...a lot. The other angled line I have appears to be a headlight beam as its more intense, but I'm trying to figure out what its angled like that. The headlight cutoff should be horizontal on the left side of the step. Are your headlight bulbs seated properly?
Again, sometimes cameras do weird things so it might all just be in the picture, but I know how critical proper aiming is of headlights that are this bright so I just want to make sure they are where they need to be for your benefit, and other drivers.

Thanks for the detailed response ,

As for the adjustments when I installed them the I did the drivers side first. Leaving the Pass side in, we turned them on and adjusted the drivers side up about two turns to level them with the other side. Im sure it has to do with the drivers regulations where drivers side lights point a little lower than the other side. I popped in the pass side and to my surprise it was perfectly in line with the side i did prior.

We did want to see how they look on the road so we drove two different cars, well I did. My buddy drove my jeep and I drove his lowered honda S2000 and his winter car a chevy cobalt. the reason we drove both was to see the difference in HID color from his kit on his s2000, but then tested them to see how they looked coming at you. The s2000 kinda sucked, the tires are basically sitting in the fenders and every car we drive past blind us. It was no different with the jeep with or without the fogs on in this case. As for the cobalt, they looked perfectly fine. I would assume most economy cars sit around the same position as it but cant speak for all of them. I will keep an eye on people and if I see it illuminating their faces, I will click the drivers side back down. But as I said before the pass side was the same height as the factory ones to begin with so there would be no reason to adjust them.

As for the picutre that you posted as you can see its not lined up perfectly with the door (centered I should say) He has an old drive way that is falling apart at the edge near the road, and I was backing out of the driveway on that photo. half of my car was on the road as i was backing out to the right. I will go find a nice flat building tonight or tomorrow night and get a better alignment photo.

As for the headlights, same senario. The driveway has that wierd arch in the middle for water run off and is was built in like 1915 lol I was not centered in it.. The bulbs are seated properly. I know this only becuase i took them in and out like 3 times to make sure they were locked in place.

What do you mean? This thread is in regards to the OEM LED fixtures. The bulb is built into it. If you just want an aftermarket bulb to fit into your existing halogen fog lights then its H11. Again, see my complete DIY thread for all info you could possibly need.

Thanks for posting your install along with the great pictures. I have the Opt7 Fluxbeam and they are slightly blue compare to DRLs or my installed Philips Xtremevision HID bulbs. These OEM fogs look really white from the pics. Anyone has seen both and can comment of the color temperature difference?

I installed the OEM SRT fogs, they are a white/blue color but id say a little whiter than any of the other LED kits I have tried. Probably in the 5000k-5500k range if I had to guess. they do bring out the yellow in the stock 4300k HIDs. I went a head and ordered the OSRAM CBI HIDs which are 5000k and should match up with the LEDs a little better. petey2133 has the CBIs also and said they are pretty close to the OEM LEDs. I have been pretty critical of a lot of these LED kits I have tried in the fogs but I have to say I really do like these OEM LED SRT ones definitely plenty of usable light and an easy install. Hope to have the CBIs put in the next few days.
