Fog light upgrade

I want to see what everyone say out there, I am looking to upgrade the my 2010 jk fog lights to something a lot brighter but I do want to be able to use them on road. I don't want to piss off other drivers.

Why not just leave the stock ones alone and add some auxiliary ones instead? That way if/when you do run into fog you’ll have something that will actually work.

Jw speaker has some insanely expensive led fog lights for the JK that I believe are legal....

However without a harness they will flicker like the led headlights.

Have you upgraded your head lights? If not I would start there.

Yup like brianjw mentioned, the headlights on our/all JKs suck big time. There are a couple of really good threads here on upgrading the headlights with all the info you’ll ever need if you do choose to go that route.

I replaced my fog lights with Rigid Industries dually lights and couldn't be happier.

Rigid Industries sells a bracket that allows you to mount the dually lights in the factory foglight housing. the bracket (for the pair) is about $59 i think? a great option to do. However i would upgrade the headlights first to some Trucklite or JW speaker lights, if its still not enough then look into the rigid industries conversion.

Jeep-less again

He wants to be able to use them on the road. Which is why I didn't recommend the rigid brackets for off road lights.

I have a friend that has the rigids in the stock location but they are extremely bright. Just to bright for on road.
