Anyone changed out their fog lights?
 
I never run the fog lights because they look so out of Whack with my Factory HID Headlights so I just ordered some of these in Ultra Blue figure they'll look cool if nothing else. I'll Post pics soon as they come in this week

I've heard people have retrofitted stock fogs or just switched em out for rigids. I'm probably gonna retrofit mine whenever I get funds, I have to buy a whole new passenger side bracket and fog light since some jackass didn't clean his car off and a piece of ice blew off and shattered my fog light

Ultra blue?? How is that going to match the factory white HIDs? In all sincerity, to each their own. Just wondering.

I put a set if TRS 3000K HIDs in mine. Yellow is the best color for fog lights. It cuts through rain, fog, snow, etc more than any other color.

Put some 8000k in to give it some blue. 5000k would match headlights but I like the blue on bottom.

I put in some JW Speaker 4.5" in my fogs. They were pretty sweet, although one already burnt out. Which would be fine since it has warranty but I glued it into my stock fog housing. So have to buy a new one.

Man! That's some awful glare. I'd hate to be driving on the other side of the road as you with those on. Please don't tell me you drive around like that. Those stock halogen housings aren't meant for HIDs.

They honestly aren't as bad as the camera picked them up lol.

More blinding by the OEM HIDs than those fogs do

il_duce 02-08-2014 10:16 PM

The difference is the OEM HIDs are in a projector and the light is contained and focused. There is also a built in cutoff shield. You see in your picture how even though your headlights are higher (obviously), you don't get glare from them like you do from the lower fog lights. That light from your fogs is going to shoot in every which way and blind everyone driving on the other side of the road. Just try walking about 100 ft forward in front of your truck. Notice that the cutoff from your headlights will save your eyes but those fogs are going to be scattered everywhere. It also just isn't a good look as it's just a giant glob of light that everyone else sees.
