I have had a "Fun" day...... I'm in process of installing a new heater core, AC Evap, drier, and blower motor in my 2000 WJ.. What a PITA of a job.

replaced the stock sylvania 9055 bulbs in my fog lights with sylvania silverstar ultra 9005 bulbs.

the new bulbs are much whiter than the stock (almost yellow) ones and cover a significantly wider angle.

i just used basic 9005 bulbs and they cover more area but still the stock color. i dont mind the color since i could be $20 for more light output.

just re aim them to cover the gap and will get more light on the road

i have done it and it gives more light and i am happy aswell.

but when people say they dont notice anything different i dont think they do it in a dark place and compare the stock vs the 9005 bulb

the standard ones are 3100K so that's why they are the stock yellow. the silverstar ultras are 4100K and are much brighter and supposedly cover a wider angle and extend further down the road. I don't know how this translates when you put them in fog light housings because they aren't meant for that, but there is pretty big difference from stock.

I am anxious to see how long these will last for. sylvania admits that the lifetime is much shorter than for the standard bulbs but I really only use my fogs in bad weather or in rural areas. if they don't last at least a couple years I'm not gonna fork over another $40 for new ones (versus $20 for the standards).

yea i know about the 3100K vs 4100K color differences.

if u use silverstar in the headlights will notice a bit more cover due to the brighter light but not as much as in what you did with the fogs. because you put a high beam bulb in a fog light housing and its an extra 10 -25 watts depending on what year WJ u have.

but this can go on and on if silvarstars are good or not

form the silverstar u will get a year, maybe 2 if your fingers did not touch the bulb (oil from are hand skill them so much quicker). can all ways throw in HID's in the fogs lol

HID is the next project that I would like to do when I have get the money. I have seen some done on here and the light output looks great. Today I just want to try and get this new engine in it, and maybe running. It will be great to drive it again.

I've already planned out my HID project. I think it may be the first thing I do to the WJ because these upstate NY roads need a nice set of headlights to get the light down and I love the cutoff on projectors so I'll be ordering a set of projector headlights and 5000k HID's from ddmtuning. 5000 is as high as I'll go, 6000 is too blue for my liking. I'll also be doing my audio install during the weekends up here in the parking lot. I need to run my 4awg kit and Ihave dual 10's in a sealed enclosure going back there. I am strongly considering a BB but I'm afraid my stock tires might look weird. Oppinions?
