And these look smaller than the existing housing, so you will have gaps.
IF I were set on using these as fogs, I would mount them under the bumper where they might do some good. Their small size would help them survive off-roading sessions.
I agree the laundry room was pretty lame, but I saw another picture that was much more impressive.

They should be here in couple of days and I'll plug them into a jump start battery and see how bright they really are.

I really am not as much interested in using them as fogs as for additional light/driving lights. I still want them aimed down to not blind other drivers.

Thanks for the feedback- I agree i've made up my mind to try it out but not at all sure that it will work out the way I would like.

I know on my 2000, there are 2 bulbs per blinker on the front face of the jeep...what if you were to put an amber and a white bulb in each blinker housing? I wouldn't advise it, but I've seen a couple cars with clear turn signals here in Maine...probably not legal though, especially if you live in an inspection state...

But yeah like others have said, you would risk your blinker housings, yours and others' safety (distraction), and probably be breaking the law...I'd recommend some driving lights drilled to your bumper...I have some and they're very useful...not too simple, but the way they're wired up, I can run low beams alone, or high beams alone, and then (only when in high beam mode) I can hit the switch to turn them on (I see no point in having them on with low beams, seeing as mine are a driving pattern, and also for legal issues.) This way, I can turn on my high beams WITHOUT the driving lights (for legal reasons on busier roads) and then have full lights blazing on back roads
