Price: $70.00
Pros: Great value for price Hella quality lens
Cons: Mount is cheesy Not as good as the old ones Hella made for Jeep
Recommended? No

Comments: Just got a set to replace yet another pair of fog lights destroyed (I tend
to go through them pretty badly! ).

The new Hella 500s are not nearly as sturdy as the ones that company made
for Jeep for the TJ/LJ. The mounting bracket looks like it came from Home
Depot and I had to widen the hole in my bumper to get the bolt in.

That said, it takes a little effort but they do mount securely. Wiring
them up was straightforward (I already had wires) and I love how much they
light up the sides of the road without blinding oncoming traffic.

I definitely need to upgrade to 100w H3 bulbs, I think I have some spares
from broken fog lights I still have. The 55w bulb is OK but the 100w is
much better from what I have read and experienced with other fog lights.
They are a great supplement to your headlights and are well worth the money!

Sure you can pay more, but these are probably the best value for money fog
lights available at the moment!

Price: $76.00
Pros: Affordable performance.
Cons: There is a square molding on the bottom of the light that, and with my bumper it prevents me from angling them down enough. but as soon as i get a washer or two for spacers, it wont be a problem.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: For the price they cant be beat. The HID is available, so after that they would compete with the best. but great light for the price.

Price: $45.00
Pros: Thorough Kit with all
Cons: Questionable wire quality. Think it should be thicker wire.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I attached this about a year after I first opened the box. Mounted the lights on my windshield using the KC light mounts, but waited until I could figure out how to best run the wires. I have seen many people run them back under windshield and thought that would be a leak point.
I modified the original harness as it comes with enough cable to mount on the front bumper. The kit comes with an excellent wiring instructions and has other mounting options available on the companies website. Includes a Relay and all hardware.

The lens is good quality with easy access to replace the bulbs when a failure occurs. The Housing is a nice low profile design not blocking view out the window. The housing is plastic and some minor trimming was required to make lens fit snugly enough for my taste.

The internal switch is good quality but bulb is too bright for my liking so I replaced with an LED version available at Radioshack.

I can give wiring suggestions and pictures of how I mounted if contacted.

Price: $90.00
Pros: Easy to install, slim profile, decent light.
Cons: 55W bulbs that come with are a bit dim.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Had these same set on two jeeps over 9 years. I upgraded the bulbs to 100W and it made a huge difference. They have a nice slim profile, so they can be tucked right up to the grill or roof rack without sticking out too much. The install instructions are clear and easy to install. The black plastic housing fades just a little over time, but less than I would have expected. Good lights, especially for the price ($90 a pair).

Comments: I got the Hella 500 's with the amber lens. Works great in the fog and snow! Great for any nighttime driving! Creates a beam pattern on the road that is not obtrusive to other drivers, short and wide. Gives your truck an unique look!
