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

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.
