Re: Fog light bulb replacement

Here's what it looks like from about 25 feet in front of the Jeep.

Taken at about 3 ft above ground on the left, 1 ft above ground on the right.

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

Thanks Halfdeaf!

Greatly appreciate the info and pictures. I do live in a fog prone area and prefer an actual fog light to just matching the color to my headlights....which does look nice. I was worried about putting an HID bulb in a halogen enclosure but after hearing your feedback am less worried.

Thanks again!
Steven

Thanks for posting your experience & results, Halfdeaf.

I presume you've not had any problems with melting your fog lamp assemblies. Which kit/vendor did you use?

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

No problems yet (well, the lenses haven't melted, anyway) with a XenonDepot kit with Phillips bulbs... I installed the kit without using the relay harness. I don't imagine the 3000K bulbs burn any cooler than the whiter bulbs, though.

My left bulb flickers once in a while, which I figure is a loose connection - so far I've been too lazy to pull the air dam to check it out.

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

Having seen the HID fogs they don't look bad. I ran them in my BMW and it didn't spread vertically either or blind on coming vehicles. I live in an area of fog at times but mostly no external light as in rural so more light especially along the sides to spot deer, wild hogs bolting is desirable.
I tend to use the best quality ballast and bulbs available because they are such a pain in the butt to swap stuff out once installed...

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

I replaced the stock fog light bulbs with the Phillip's LED's from Xenon Depot. I'm super impressed with their light output, it lights up the road nicely to the shoulder and matches the headlights perfectly. From time to time I do get flashed but that's just fine. These LED bulbs totally shit all over those stock bulbs and anyone that doesn't put these In and buys Silverstars or HID's should slap them selves. I was actually so impressed with the LEDS I purchased LED headlights for my MB Sprinter van from the same company.

Which LEDs did you get from Xenon Depot that "matches the headlights perfectly" ?

no I have these LED, which has each 30W. Maybe is the problem tat H11 has 55W.
I can try parallel Load resistor - but how many ohms?

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

Here's the info from my invoice:
The install took less then 6 minutes....they are bright, what's holding them back is the small projector opening that the jeeps have. These in the Ram with the larger fog light opening that they have will really show what these LES's can do.

Order Details:

H7-LED-HL H7 LED Headlight Kit
1 US $119.99 US $119.99

...so, let's get this straight: less light output than stock halogens (based on the vendor's own stats) *and* it manages to scatter light into the eyes of oncoming traffic (though this does not concern you), with costs comparable to HID fogs, but yet anyone who chooses a different course of action than you did is obviously making the incorrect choice?

Trolololol...
