inexpensive bright fog lights

i made this thread in 2012 on another forum. its very possible i got the original information from this forum but i am unable to find it now so i figured i would copy the one i did for people who haven't been around since 2012 and need some bright bright cheap fog lights
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

original thread:

remember a year or so ago, i bought those afterburner cheapo fog lights from walmart? they have the black rubber housings? well, that housing is called a par 36 housing and is actually used on tons of different light applications. if you buy the same light kit, and some other bulbs, ge4509, you get 100w fog lights for less then half the price of kc lights and these won't corrode because the housing is rubber. the bulbs cost 15 bucks each at napa and are on the shelf.

here is the original 35w after burner light


here is how its attached


the old bulb was 4411


here is the two lights next to each other, see how easy this is


here is the new 100w fog light, it puts out a pencil style beam instead of a flood style light


and these suckers are bright, i tried them out, just to see if they would show anything during the day, and they lit up the tree trunk across the yard at noon so they are bright


the xj is the only jeep left in the driveway

100 watts? Meh.

These aircraft landing lights are 450 watts each at 24v, and turn off the street lights as you drive down the road.

Seriously though, the more power you run to the lights, the hotter they get, to the point that those rubber housings can melt or burn, so something to watch out for.

Poor grammar is something up with which I shall not put.

yes, that is something to watch for if you are running them super hot. running on the stock fog light wires didn't make it an issue though.
