Fog lights

I am wondering what you guys have done to upgrade your fog lights. I want to keep my bumper and light locations just wondering what people have put in that will be brighter?

You can change the bulb to a higher output bulb. 07-10 take an H10 bulb.

Warn SDB-210. $$$$$$ but nice & bright, 200K candlepower. $523 at Quadratec, haven't shopped since on my Jeep when I bought used.

Pros- can use low setting in traffic, very bright for open country hi way driving, nice exterior finish has held up perfectly for about 5 years of all season driving in Idaho & Canada.

Cons- price, and uses separate Hi/Lo switch, so have accessible to dim for oncoming traffic (I never use stock high beams anymore)

Also, if you spend that kind of dough on lights, I would ( and did ) add clear 3M rock chip guard to lenses ( learned the hard way, even with plastic louvre guards ). The louvre guards can still be used with clear guard.

Went the Vision X route. At the time they were the only ones available. First time I used them with the jaundice headlights it caused me to buy an upgrade to those as well.

Due to the necessity of having to cut the aftermarket bumper the vision X were sold off and am now running Rigid D2's. Better light projection with these units.

Is there a H10-H16 adapter? Or an H16 female connector?

If you use your fogs with the headlights all the time like everyone else around here, I would leave them stock. All they do is splash some light around the front of your Jeep. A bulb upgrade will essentially just make a brighter splash around your Jeep, as that is the way the light housing and reflector inside works. They are not made for distance or height. If you want to upgrade for occasional use, such as with no on-coming traffic, for lighting up the trails, Poison Spyder has a kit to mount D2 Duallys in your factory fog location. Other companies may have that as well, I just happened to be on their website yesterday. Just remember, if you upgrade to bright lights, you shouldn't use them in traffic.

Living in fog country where we may get 2-3 months of learns the ins and outs of fog lights. In the fog at night, headlights cause, what is called, "back dazzle". This is the blast of reflected light you see when you hit your high beams in the fog, making 100 ft visibility into 30 feet.

Fog lights reflect the road only and these stock fog lights do just that....pretty well. It's how they're aimed. These give you a better shot at seeing the road when visibility drops to worse than 100 ft. You're not going to make off-road lights out of these unless you swap out the whole unit and redirect the beam. But giving these a bit of a wattage boost will help a little.

If you want off road some windshield mounts or roof rack ones. You want those lights to be high enough to shoot down the road over obstacles and contour variations.
