Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

I want to upgrade my fog light bulbs but curious how it would look since the headlights aren't super bright/LEDs to begin with. Has anyone done this on an altitude and what would you recommend. Before anyone tells me to search, I did, and the only threads I could find were about summits/limiteds/overlands which already have the led headlights to begin with. Thanks for any info!

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

To be honest, if I had a Laredo/Altitude with the halogen headlights, I would leave the fogs stock. I like consistency and that way they match perfectly. Plus it's not like the LED bulbs would increase useable output. Now if you were going to add an HID headlight kit of 4300/5000kish then I would say yes changing to a matching color fog bulb would look great.

Thanks for the reply. I am not opposed to changing the headlight bulbs, but I want something that would be plug and play, I am not interested in changing harnesses or anything. Any suggestions?

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

Im using Sylvania Ultras in my lows and fogs. 100% plug and play, stock wattage, etc... They increased usable output a decent amount at night. To me it was pretty significant and I'm very happy with results.

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

if you don't care about increased output and just want a nicer color with similar to stock output go with Nokya 7k 55w H11 arctic white bulbs for heads and fogs. Look at my build thread for pictures of the color of them. Going with aftermarket HID's is a pain in the ass and to be honest isn't worth it.

Thanks for the replies, I will look into both of these. I honestly just want something a little brighter but don't want the hassle of changing harnesses and all of that. Thanks again!

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

If you want the bulbs brighter to actually work better as fog lights (as opposed to 'bling'), swap out the OEM H11 bulbs with PIAA Ion Yellow bulbs.

Nokya 3k bulbs are better (output and yellow color) and cheaper. If you are going that route.

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

I put in Osram nightbreaker unlimited H11s in both the headlights and fog lights. I have been happy with them. The light has been a bit brighter and a bit whiter.

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

I was thinking of trying the Philips H11 CrystalVision Ultra bulbs for the headlights and fog lights. Anyone using these? I would like same or better output with a white light.

Re: Replacement Fog light bulbs on 15 Altitude

Have a '14 limited with Halogen bulbs - I too have been running the Osram Nightbreakers in the low beams and the fog/driving lights. With the four of them on, very rarely do I use the high beams.
