Just the bulbs or different lamps? Bulb size is 5202 or H16 or PSX24W. You could try LED bulbs, around 7~12 watts, they may provide more light output than the 24 watt halogen. I'll see if I can find some links.

I found some for my 08 but have no idea what the # is. They are 12W and give a nice additional fill when needed in a color range that is perfect for the conditions.

I also mounted some extra bumper 7" dichromic yellow with special bulbs from DStern.

Read his tech stuff for impressive learning opportunity.

Fog lights for 08 are different from the 12s if i recall.

I am going to get a pair of the rigid dually amber fogs and the harness that allows them to fit into the stock bumper or any bumper with the stock fog light mount setup. I've seen them in videos and they look great.

Sadly, PIAA doesn't make the plasma-ion bulb for the newer JK fog lights.

Nokya Yellow H16.
You will have to use a straight edge to cut the top part to make the bulb fit the harness.

You might also consider using Laminx yellow film to cover your foglights. Easy to do and also adds protection to the lights.

I run H16 3000K hids in my fogs. Works amazingly in foul weather, but then again, I am one of the few people on the road that uses their foglights for actual foul weather.

I installed PUTCO Pure Jet Yellow 3000K H16 9009 bulbs
They are 36W and fit into the stock connector after you trim two of the alignment grooves on the bulbs mounting base.
Watch out when you buy bulbs; make sure they are for fog lights and not head lights. The headlight version will burn thru the JK fog light lens.

Because you are searching for a bulb that doesn't exist. The OEM bulb is a chrysler only bulb, no one makes that size. You want to search for an H16 bulb.

You guys still running these bulbs in your Fogs - any updates? Reading that they seem to be brighter than stock they don't last very long.
