Replacement fog lights?????

I want to get new fog lights to replace factory fogs but would like to just replace the lens and bulb to make them brighter if that is an option, or an inexpensive replacement unit. Any help would be appreciated. Just starting the mod process and trying to stay small at first so wife doesn't FREAK

+1 on the Hella 500's.

If you want to use your stock wiring, here's a more expensive option. KC Hilites 1132 - KC HiLiTES Replacement Fog Light for 05-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec

try 65watt Sylavania Silver star bulbs. Even the 55w I put in made a big difference...$40

Any chance you can snap a pic of the wires behind the dash for the fogs. So i know what to look for when i take the dash apart again this weekend?

here is a link to modify stock fogs Jeepin.com: Getting more light from your factory fog lights . I know its not wrangler specific, but I saw a thread somewhere the otherday with the same basic principles for the wrangler fogs.

I installed these the other day
IPF 900xs driving lights. got em used for $175

low beams:

low beams WITH driving lights on:

Driving lights only:

install was very simple, I just had to slightly enlarge the factory fog light holes on the bumper, and they came with its own relay and harness.
