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.

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.

I second that question to anyone running the Nokya's... I'm thinking about grabbing these for my JK and my GF's Impreza, but seeing mixed reviews about longevity.

If you are just looking to change over to a yellow light and not upgrade, check out lamin-x film. I put this on my 2012 and have been happy with it. It has been on the Jeep for over two years now without any issues. Keep in mind I live in the salt-belt, so they get coated with nasty grime all winter long.

Do you have a picture? Do you have LED or regular/stock bulbs with them?

I will try to take a picture later but here is my experience.

I started with the stock Philips bulb and the Lamin-X. I really liked the color of the light and the light output was really no different than stock - which makes sense. The yellow film really did not lessen the light output is what I am trying to say. You do however notice the light more since it is yellow.

One of my bulbs burnt out so I ordered some ebay LED replacements. They are definitely brighter, but since the LED is a cooler color of light the yellow looks more yellow/green. I am not overly fond of the way it looks, just too lazy/cheap to throw out the LED bulbs.

So I would either recommend staying with the stock bulb or some other incandescent bulb or make sure the LED is a warm white.

EDIT:

I just found these on Amazon and may give them a try.

Looks to be the right size. While LEDs are nice, I do prefer the traditional halogen bulbs here in the midwest. The ice and snow caked up my fogs really easily last winter.
