LED Fogs

Anyone have any experience switching out the stock fog bulbs to leds like Lumen or Putco. Are they brighter, any problems?

Re: LED Fogs

I dont have experience with those exact brands. But I do have experience with switching several cars lights over to LED fog lights. If you're looking for the "look" of HID without the cost, led is an easy alternative. Many of the LED bulbs are just plug and play now. But if you are looking for performance, I would suggest to hold off. You're overall light output with most LED bulbs with get cut down to almost half compared to the stock halogen. Which to me was a big bummer/drawback.

You can find ebay HID kits for almost the same price or just a tad more than the LED bulbs would cost. Many guys/gals on here have used them for a year or two with no problems at all. Just depends on which one's you get. You could do a search for how to install them and see what other's are using as well.

Re: LED Fogs

Im running Vleds LED fog bulbs right now. They match pretty close to my 6K hid kit, but not perfectly and no problems at all.

They are bright as hell at night, almost as bright as my HID kit, however they only throw light about 2-3' in front of my Jeep. Obviously they're not intended for road illumination while driving, but more for looks. I got mine for the soul purpose of having that DRL LED look alot of the high end cars now have.

hope this helps!
