Re: What bulb is in the WK2 fog light?

I thought I remembered reading somewhere where someone burned up the fog light housing using a new bulb, can't remember if it was a HID kit or a LED conversion. Since LEDs require much less power, I don't think that was it, but I can't be sure.

I can tell you from being a service writer at a jeep dealership that I have seen two WK come in that people have put higher watage bulbs in as plug and play without replacing wiring come in and had the actual wire burn up or so it looked like. Both these jeeps had the fog lights malfunction because it looked like wire was burnt. If I recall they had 55w bulbs vs 45w which come stock. I don't know if the wire burning was a direct result of the bulbs or not but can only assume.

Re: What bulb is in the WK2 fog light?

this is an LED bulb. What you speak of have been HID's...probably the 55w variety

Re: What bulb is in the WK2 fog light?

I just ordered the 7.5 watt LED's from the "auction site". 54 bucks plus free shipping. We'll see how they hold up. They look way better than the yellowish bulbs.

I am new to this site so I am not sure what the auction site is? Could you possible send me a link to the bulbs?

I also replaced my stock bulbs from highperformancebulbs.com.

P/N H16HPLEDW. The new LED bulbs makes a big difference

Re: What bulb is in the WK2 fog light?

FYI, when I ordered the H16s a year ago, high performance bulbs said the H16s were the wrong bulb for the WK2 and sent me the PSX24WHPLEDW instead. The PSX24 has the correct base. The two bulbs look like they have the same LED specs and price, so the difference, I think, is just a better fit (no trimming).
