Yes, there is a difference between the fogs and the DRLs. I think both are quite low intensity and during the day would not cause harm to anyone's vision. I actually find that the DRLs look brighter than the fogs...but that's just me (even though I think the fogs are of higher output they look less to me).

Re: Fog Light Usage

There are also those out there with light sensitive eyes. Mine are, but most lighting doesn't bother me at all. Regular bulbs (Including Platinums, etc), even in projectors, don't bother me. But HIDs and LEDs used in fogs and those stupid, flashing headlights on motorcycles (lol) bother me.

Oh I agree, LED fog lights should stay off unless it's foggy.

However my point is, even those with light sensitive eyes won't find it that annoying (as you said above) because the actual daylight drones it out. So if the OEM foglights or DRLs are annoying those with light sensitive eyes during the day...they shouldn't be driving without some sort of aid.

I am slightly light sensitive. Not medically but I can't drive during the daytime without sunglasses. I also think everyone should drive during the day with sunglasses on (LEDs or OEM in the mirror or not)...the sun can be distracting, good quality sunglasses will a) take care of this whole fog light argument b) take care of the distraction during the day time, that being the sun.

My area besides stup.d deer’s populated with same level people walking or riding bikes on highways while dark too. Extra light will save their life’s and your car/life as well. Also it is not just about you see them better, they are as well can see you and react if the can.

Re: Fog Light Usage

Last night, while driving slowly on my block I turned the headlights off and turned on the fogs. I switched back and forth a few times to see the difference in light intensity and the area actually lit by the fogs. The HID's are much brighter and a cooler shade with a bluish tinge. The fogs don't project very far at all and are aimed in more of a downward direction, but I still think they could be blinding in situations where the front of the vehicle is elevated slightly. Normal headlights can do the same thing but the Jeep's Smart Beams automatically adjust for unlevel (is that a word?) roads. So for me the answer is still to leave them off as a courtesy, and because I don't find that they make it any easier to see, except in fog.

Re: Fog Light Usage

It doesn't prevent me medically from driving and I usually keep my shades in my Jeep. Only times my eyes are bother is when it's really bright out or in the winter sometimes on bright days and bright snow. Fogs don't usually bother me, the ones that do bother me are the idiots out there that just toss them in or upgrade to HIDs because they like bright shiny objects and they don't adjust them.

Re: Fog Light Usage

In Europe the fog lights have an extra small bulb, which goes on when the main beam are on. The DRL's are turned off with the main beam, the fogs are then acting as DRL's.

Re: Fog Light Usage

Hey guys/gals!!! I recently purchased a 2012 Overland and LOVE IT!!!!!!! I was curious as to what model fog light bulb was in there from the factory??? I would like to upgrade it if possible with a whiter light bulb from PIAA if possible.

Thanks in advance for the assistance!!!

Nothing says ghetto (and clueless) like the ultra bright blue lights.
