KC HiLites Fog Light Question

I have had good experience with KC Fog Lights in the past so I am buying a set for my 1999 XJ Sport. I didn't find an answer to my question by searching so maybe someone can answer this.

Will the #452 Fog Light fit my 99 XJ Sport on the stock bumper or do I need the #127 Slimlite Fog Lights?


#452

Definitely going to need the slims to be able to mount on the stock bumper without fabbing brackets. I fabbed my own brackets for some LED's and welded them to my bumper since I couldn't mount them directly to the bumper without them sticking way out in front.

I have the slim lights and they fit perfect, but they fit tight to the grill.

Good choice! The slimlites are also metal vs. the apollos which are plastic. I've had the driving beam version of the slimlites for 5 years now and they've been great. If I needed lights for another vehicle, I'd buy the same ones. They are kind of expensive compared to Hellas or other plastic housing lights, but they are worth every penny. The wiring harness they come with is plug and play and easy to install. I drive on lots of back roads at night, and my KCs have easily saved me thousands of dollars in deer damage. You can also buy parts for them in case something breaks.

That's great. I like the idea of being able to buy parts.
