I would much prefer yellow, but the Putco Jet Yellow bulbs that I bought do not fit, even after shaving off the 3 "tabs" on the body. They do not snap in securely. I'd give anything for a nice set of yellow halogen bulbs that fit these OEM sockets!

Re: Whiter fog lights

^^^ that's not good to hear, all it takes is a little water when it's on and bam! it shatters and the light housing could be ruined too. maybe Nokyns might seal better?

Please post updates! I am currently researching retrofitting HID projectors into the fog locations, but wouldn't going with the Nokyas in the short term if they do indeed fit securely.

Not too much research needed, Install a pair of Blazers if they are small enough to fit in the WK2 housing.

That's what I'm working with...just waiting on my spare fog light housings so I can determine the best way to mount them. I'm sure it will involve holesaws and JB Weld. Also, there is another set of metal/glass projectors that have threaded holes on the side which would allow me to mount to the sides of the black surround of the fog lenses. I believe I saw a member here do the same thing.

It's a shame in this day and age that the WK2's don't come with projector fog housings. It took them forever to implement projector headlights with the 08 so it could take a while.

Easiest way is to undo the bottom fastener in the wheel well (it turns 90* and pulls out). Then you can reach up behind the liner and the fog bulb is right there. If you lay on your back and look up behind the wheel liner, everything is visible. The bulbs snap in at an angle, so keep that in mind when you are trying to re-insert them.

Yes, that definitely helps as well. Also, it is even easier if you raise it to OR2!
