Price: $75.00
Pros: cheap, bright, easy install
Cons: as soon as they got wet, they faded. Used to be brighter than my high beam OEM lights. Now they're less than my low beam OEM lights.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: just dont get them drenched, soaked...idk. Pretty sure i did too many water crossings with them and that screwed them up. Great while it lasted, now im going to IPF's or KC's.

Price: $76.00
Pros: Good price
Cons: Kinda wimpy looking
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Bought these mainly because of price, but also reputation. Just wish that the housing looked a little more beefy.
But again, dollar for dollar... they don't look as cheesey as some of the other fogs out there

Price: $60.00
Pros: Excellent fog lights, very bright, not a bad price
Cons: Had to weld the brackets to my bumper, the nuts kept loosening themselves while driving over bumps, roots, and potholes.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Very easy install, great fog/driving lights. I welded mine to the bumper and installed a switch right next to the E-brake lever, very convenient. A crucial lighting upgrade in my opinion.

Price: $73.00
Pros: Good reputation, price, light output, DOT approved street legal
Cons: plastic housing
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have 2 of the Hella 500 driving lights installed on a Safari bar. The light output from them is really good and focused. I like that they are DOT approved with 55w bulbs so I can use them to help supplement the less than stellar stock headlights. The price is really good and installation was straight forward and easy.

Price: $70.00
Pros: easy install, you can get piece parts if the break
Cons: all plastic
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The lighting on these whether the fog or driving are nice, install is a breeze and the directions are spot on. I wired directly to the battery instead of the headlights so i could use at my leasure without worrying about the brights turning them off. The only con is its all thin plastic but if they break there cheap to repair.

Price: $35.00
Pros: cheap and came with all wiringing.
Cons: The Switch included in the kit looked lame and cheap.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got all the wiring and relay installed and then had to come up with a good way to mount switch. While poking around on the net I found the fog light switch for a 97-2002 for Omix-ada. It looked like it would fit in the one blank spot I had in the center console. A little requiring and modification to the unused Overdrive plug (my TJ has manual) and it all fit. Switch blend right in and if you didn't know better you would think it belonged there...

Price: $70.00
Pros: Very bright Light up the road Easily installed
Cons: No cons yet
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought these hellas to put on my front bumper cause it has for places to mount them. i put them in front of my grille so they are the same level as my headlights. They dont really restrict any air from getting to the radiator i have not had overheating problems. Knock on Wood. I would recommend these 100 percent

Price: $80.00
Pros: Put out alot of light for 55 watts. Durable construction. Due to 55 watt rating you have the ability to use factory wiring ( replacing factory fog lights).
Cons: Could use more adjustability.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I purchased a set of each: Fog lights and driving lights. The driving lights are blidingly bright, but if I had to do it again I would have purchased two sets of fogs. I have the driving lights mounted on windshield mounts and the fogs mounted on my front bumper. The driving lights produce an extremely bright narrow beam that reaches way out in front of you and would be great for high speed night driving, but I don't do high speed. The fogs put off a more subtle light that helps broaden the path of light directly in front of the jeep and really help to see in fog and rain as well as helping to avoid otherwise unseen obstacles when off roading at slow speeds at night. If these lights had better adjustability/ aimabilty I would by another set of fogs to replace the driving lights, but I'd want to be able to aim them down almost aiming at the ground behind the front wheels, but their current mounting design prevents that from happening. You cannot aim them down very far at all.
