They look great and "appear" bright. As for actual foul weather visibility? LED lights are terrible for that (white) and it will generally make things appear worse. It's a tradeoff.

I bought a pair for CREE LED bulbs for my stock fog lamps. I wanted them for DRL's and they fit the bill.

What is the bulb number and is it a direct swap?

Got 'em, had for about two yrs. Very bright, use them only on the trail or lonely, dark scary desert roads. Have not had a chance to use them in fog as we don't get much of that out here in the desert. We have used them twice for rock crawling at night. These were every bit as brigh as everyone else's rugged ridge's. Like ours more for the rock crawling as the dispersed beam put more light on the rock below the bumper than their did. Very nice.

Would buy them again.

Is it just a direct swap bulb that goes in the factory fog light?

The Vision X setup replaces the factory fog light housing, not just the bulb.

Direct bolt in. Two yrs ago we had to cut the stock plugs off and splice the wires together. Don'know if they are still that way.

Boyz at Rebel will do ya right. Speak with either Jason or Gabe.

Well, a friend and I picked last Thursday to do a number of mods on the Jeep, one of which was installing the Vision X fogs. We got the other mods finished, but the fog lights did not make it in. Basically, going to have to wait until later this week.

Not sure if anyone else has tried replacing the fogs in the 10A bumper, but the build guys seriously locktited all the screws into the bumper. We managed to get one of them out, but every single other one was in there to the point we stripped the screws trying to get them out. We could have tapped it out, but at that point it was late and pouring down rain and we would have had to make a trip to the store to get new ones, so we decided to call it a night.

So, take two on the fog light install will be this Wednesday
