Re: Fog light bulb replacement



Yes...i have them.right here in my hand. Ive had them in my srt and they do in fact seem to put out more usable light with 0 glare. I say 0 glare because they have a very sharp cutoff unlike the halogen oem bulbs. The usable light is on the highway and illuminates road marking, signs etc. much better than the oem. I have some pics somewhere of the oem halogen in one side and the philips in another. Maybe its a trick to the eye by the 6000k color of the philips? Or maybe they really do put out more light. Most people who have them say they do. Imho they do. Thats just me though. I...like others tried the halogen reolacements....ie. silverstars, ultras and others and these are better imho.

I dont think they are being misleading by sating they are 5% better than the 1200 equivelant lumen halogen. 700 lumen leds do seem to be better than 1200 lumen halogens.

Before i went to the 2015+ jeep srt oem leds...i used the xenondepot brand h11 leds. They are 40w and 2500 lumens. They use the philips luxeon mz led diodes.

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

Anyone tried Broview in the fog lights?, 6000 or 8000 lumen?

I can try parallel Load resistor - but how many ohms?
To these leds I was added Warning canceleres and works perfect. Shine much more than stock H11
Normal resistors doesn't work - but these H11 LED Headlight Canbus Error Free Anti Flicker Resistor Canceller is OK

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

I too like the fog functionality employing yellow bulbs. Nothing fancy, just the 55W Hella Optilux yellow bulbs. The light pattern is really shallow on mine so I probably need to adjust the fixtures up a bit. The brightness though is great for those dark rainy nights and during foggy conditions.

Re: Fog light bulb replacement

The spread looks good I would not expect someone to flash you given they are correctly adjusted. Where I live because there is considerable forest with no light anyplace many adjust their fogs up blinding everyone. Worse yet are the ones that put HIDs in their fog housing adjusted up. That and jack up pick up trucks drive by Joe Ted Bob down here running HIDs in halogen housing do blind everyone.

I have a set of quality HIDs and might put then in the fog light housing and level them adjusted correctly. Where I live I need all the light I can get and I also live in an area where there is no cell phone connection for 10-15 miles so seeing what is ahead of you like hogs and deer is important since if you break down you are going to be waiting for help.

My other concern is the plastic fog lens housing. I already had one break and I am curious if the HIDs will effect that plastic len...

IDK what the website says, these fog light bulbs do not produce 6000 lumen, maybe 1200.

Was kindda hard to believe to begin with!, problably 6000 at the core of the LED, not on the wall...🙄

They do seem to produce more light than the stock halogen.

Website says 6000 lumen per bulb, certainly draw enough power.
