JK Fog Light Bulbs

Seeking any input from anyone that has some experience with the OEM fog light bulbs and light covers. So I purchased some of the Lamin-X covers in yellow for my fog lights in the bumper. I have a bulb burned out. The LKQ replacement bulb is almost $30 for a single incandescent. I’m not a fan of LED’s and they don’t sell a bright white. I’ve read the LED’s are green behind the yellow covers. Then a little while ago I found bulbs on line....LED’s offered in both white and yellow. They are $15.99 for a pair, rather than $30 for one bulb. Anyone have any suggestions or opinions on LED’s behind yellow covers? Anyone ever put a yellow LED behind a yellow cover? Thanks, Kevin

Thanks. Any thoughts on the LED behind a yellow cover....turning the light a green tint? I don’t want that.

The only reason a LED will appear green is if the tint isnt good quality. LED will last in the long run and if you search around enough you will find a set for the price youre willing to spend with a proper white light. Just remember you get what you pay for.

Cool thanks. I’m not a fan of LED headlights so I have some bright whites in my headlights, but they don’t make crap for the fog bulb except basic....or go to a LED

Gotta go shovel again as I just got home and my complex hired an idiot with a Brandy New GMC and has no idea how to plow, but Iím sure he was cheap

Enough reading I’m finally figuring out the some with the color of these light bulbs. Apparently as you get up towards 6000K and 8000K you get blue. 4000K seems to be closest to pure white. I found some PIAA bulbs at 3600K and 3900K I may go with...not LED.

Those look good. Is that the stock bumper with the round lights mounted on them? I recently bought some KC’s that I mounted on my windshield pillars with a spread beam....wish I had bought spots. Would like to buy spots and put them on the pillar and mount the spread beams down on the bumper....but it’s stock bumper.

That looks good
I had the Nokya ones in my TJ, lasted forever. Tried them in my JK, the new ps24 or whatever it is the 2012 JK takes, and the damn thing fell apart in the housing within a week. I will be going that laminex route, thanks for posting. Of course, can't do it until spring most likely; bet there is a temp adherence suggestion.

Oh yeah totally, I even took my fogs out and brought them in over night.
Gave them a good bath and took my time putting the filters on.
They really do help at night and in the fog.
Iím all of 6 miles from the Maine coast and we see a ton of fog all year long so this was a must for me.

We go through that area for the hell of it a couple times a month. 10 hour drive from here in Lebanon NH to Portland, then around the Cape snd south to Portsmouth NH to Rochester NH, along Winnepesauke and back home.
Not gonna be removing mu fogs right away though, one downside to Rock Hard stock bumper winch plate, in the way of a lot like fogs and grill=heads.

If you really want to see Maine head up to The Forks area, look for a Village called East Moxie
Itís where I normally go camping
Bring everything you need tho, itís no campground

Or get north of Augusta, itís the Mason Dixon line of Maine
South of Augusta is south Maine or Northern Massachusetts
North of Augusta is Maine, the way life should be

They did change the Welcome to Maine sign this year
It now reads Welcome Home
No longer Vacation Land

Stock bumper yes but the lights actually mount to the Grill frame so they will work with most any bumper, got the light mount from QTec, I'll find the link.
The Rigid Radiance are a hybrid with a decent spread, they do light up the hood pretty good and I plan to add a flat black stick on shield to cut down the glare, I like the Amber up high and at full width.

I have them pointed out just slightly so the beams just touch in the center when they are on, being LED their distance isn't great.
The 7" Hellas with HIDs are my distance lights, I've had them things forever, they are the FF Optic.
And throw light like nothing else I've ever seen, haven't seen the new lazer lights yet, but I've heard good things.
Up here in Maine we have areas that let me stretch out the distance lights regularly.

Nice, looks good!
I could not get them under $35 on the lamin-x site though, even ising the dec15 code
Perhaps more expensive for the 2012. Doesn't make sense as they are the same size.

Hmmm 🤔 shouldn’t be shipping, came in flat, little bigger than envelope size, USPS in the mailbox. I think they are in GA, I’m in SC, but still.

So I put 5000K LED’s behind the yellow Lamin-X. It has a green tint to when when turned on...don’t like it. I’m gonna go up to a 100W LED at 3000K yellow behind the yellow Lamin-X
