Smile 9006 bulbs in foglights?

I was looking at the foglight bulbs and I believe they are 9145 41 watt. I want to get a little more light so would it be ok to put a pair of 9006 53 watt bulbs in? Thanks

I did have lows+fog hids installed, but I had to take them off because they kept flickering even though I had the relay harness and a good ground. I still have em handy if anybody wants to help me troubleshoot

Yeah I guess I'm going to stick with halogens until I can find the pair of slim ballasts left over from my old WJ. I thought the big ones worked just as good..maybe not

Re: 9006 bulbs in foglights?

I had to flip the plug in order for them to be installed without a relay. Then they work perfectly
