Re: Anyone have pics of the output and pattern of HID fogs in 99'-03 Jeeps?

Yes those led fogs would definitely give very poor performance!

I will try and get some better pictures of my light out put in a completely dark parking light near some wooded areas around my house.

On a side note a just installed all V-LED lights both interior and exterior included the switch back turn signals and live them!! 5k all the way around great visual mod for sure!

Re: Anyone have pics of the output and pattern of HID fogs in 99'-03 Jeeps?

@Sskafar: Cool man, I look forward to seeing them. Nice to hear with the V LED interior and exterior.

1) How did you go about hooking your interior up? Where did you put the resistor?

2) How do you replace the #194 in the door panel? I can't get the original bulb out of the socket lol.

3) I'm curious as to which LED's you used for each application

1) I have not used a resistor and my bulbs do turn all the way off. The only bulbs I haven't changed were the lights in the drop down visor mirrors. I actually forgot about them! Lol. Not sure if I'm going to change them the soft light may be better for viewing in the mirror which I hardly do anyway.

2) the door bulbs were a pain. I pried off the cover with a small screwdriver. Then I pried out the white plasic housing to remove the small blue bulb harness. I could not get the bulb out of the blue socket for nothing and ended up breaking them. I stuck a very small Allen key in a small hole in back of the blue socket to remove the remainder of the broken bulb.


3) funny you should asked! I wish someone had done this already becuase I wanted to make sure I got all the right bulbs! I wish they put together a kit for specific vehicles. I will try to post a list of all the bulbs I used for each application.

A. Stick an HID capsule in the stock fluted fog or an aftermarket replacement fluted fog

B. Stick an HID capsule in an aftermarket clear fog

C. Go with the projector fog and live with it
it depens on what you want.

if you want your fogs to match the lows put hids in the fog housing, 35w not 55w they might melt the housing .

if you want lighting on the road both will do about the same with a proper adjustment with a stock bulb or hids. but if you have hids in the lows most opf teh ground will be covered anyway.


were talking about fog lights if you look at the pic aabove they dont cover much ground except for a bit of the side and in front. they are just there to help you see things close up in bad weather. but people want them to look good. you have to figure out what you want out of them. some people run yellow bulbs because they say it helps in bad weather. am happy with teh hi bulb mod since it covers more ground now and is a bit brighter.

Re: Anyone have pics of the output and pattern of HID fogs in 99'-03 Jeeps?

all the bulb number are listed here http://www.wjjeeps.com/lamps/lamps.htm

just need to find the led version for inside or out and most will pop right in.

i picked most of mine up on ebay with a mix of us and china seller and spent about $20 to do evic, rear seats, cargo, front floor lights, glove box, astray (one i picked up had a big base and was not sitting well), doors (never put them in).

just wanted to do the cargo to make it brighter which it is now and spent a few more dollars for the rest of the inside

also picked one up for the under hood light 9 leds for $10 and its very bright.
only down side i have is the evic led stays dim and you notice it while driving. i have to pop a resistor in to kill the load

only down side to putting leds on the outside of the jeep is your noticeable to cops but they do look good

Re: Anyone have pics of the output and pattern of HID fogs in 99'-03 Jeeps?

This is what I was going to go with for my setup: I want to try to do all 5K because I'm afraid 6k will be too blue

Rear Cargo Light: Either this


or if I can get this to fit


Front door Courtesy Lights:


Courtesy Under dash:


Dome / Reading / EVIC:


Passenger assist handle:


License plate: (Already have these and they're perfect)


Underhood:


Parking / Side marker: (Originally went with this, Too directional and I needed something to better fill the housing)


(Probably will go with this next time)


Front Turn signal: (Either this)


(or it's newer form)


(or a switchback)

1) If you're referring to 3000k HID fogs, I've searched far and wide for a good 3000k bulb. The best on the market is the Philips Ultinon 3000k Model# 85122YX. They are only offered to the Japanese Domestic Market, But you can import them for a pretty hefty price. The only problem is that the Philips Ultinon 3000k is a D2S, So unless you somehow have retrofit fogs, then we WJ owners can't use them.

This is a picture of the package from the user "toy4x" on Infinitescene.com. As of 11-25-2010, He said they were going for $350 pair.





Philips Ultinon 3000K vs Philips Ultinon 5800K


2) Since most 3000k HID lack a visually appealing yellow color, some recommend going with a 3000k HID kit combined with Lamin-X. Lamin-X is a film that is applied to the outer portion of the lens that helps to create a better yellow effect. I've read that some people don't get the yellow look they desire with a 3000k kit and Lamin-X. I've also seen people get satisfying results from a yellow film from "GrafiXpressions", It appears to give a deeper yellow effect.

http://tsx.acurazine.com/forums/show...php?p=12823583

Comparison:


Here's someone who used them and got results they liked:


3) If you do go with an HID kit for the fogs and end up wanting to go with a film make sure your HID kit is a 35w. People say 55w can build up too much heat and possibly burn the film or overlay, it also washes out the color.

4) If you meant you're looking for yellow halogen bulbs, Maybe try Putco Jet Yellow, Nokya 2500k Hyper Yellow, Luminics JDM yellow
