Fog Lights Burning out

I got new foglights for Christmas 2014. One was burned out by thanksgiving 2015 and now the other one just burned out a few days ago.

So 2 new bulbs burned out in just over a year.

Anyone else go thru bulbs like this? maybe just bad luck

Go led, however, leds on fog light housing emits a flood type output and may distract others. that's on the only con that I have about them. Here's the dedicated thread if interested.

are they halogens? Did you touch them with your fingers? If you did .the oils from your fingers can put a "hot" spot on the lense and they can burn out premature

While not on my Wrangler, I have had a problem with bulbs burning out too soon, and such was due to water getting into the housing. All it takes is a single water drop, hitting the bulb, and its all over.
