    Hey, crew. I recently installed these Philips LED fog bulbs and they're phenomenal. For those complaining about forward lighting, these might just get you satisfied for $115. They're incredibly bright (and I've even got mine sitting behind yellow laminX).

    Peripheral illumination is greatly enhanced, and they really light up the foreground in town where the OEM bulbs fall short.

    Plug and play. No other mods necessary. And they don't blind oncoming traffic. For a quick and easy improvement and a relatively low price point, these are hard to beat.

    Philips 12794UNIX2 X-tremeUltinon 2 Pack (H8/H11/H16) LED Fog Light Kit 2 Pack https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07581DB7N/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_pjoDCbDJA5PHV

    Thanks may look into getting these for a 2018 what year did you install them in? Will they "plug and play" in a 2018? I'm looking for 1) total plug and play 2)obviously better lighting and 3) don't want to blind oncoming traffic and get "flashed" consistently.

    Yep they'll fit a 2018. Plug and play. You just need to find a spot to zip-tie the tiny ballasts.

    How are these fog lights holding up? Reviews on Amazon mention short life/flickering. Any issues with them?

    No issues at all with mine. I like them a lot. No flickering but I don’t run mine daily. Only when necessary. In the several months I’ve had them installed, I probably only have 10 hours of Run time on the bulbs.

    Sometimes I wonder if some of those failures are from water getting in the connections. Always good to use a little bulb grease.

    Thanks for the reply. I hardly use mine as well but would like brighter lights when I do use them. Had Baja Designs squadrons on my Tundra but I dont know if I want to spend that much for lights that aren't road legal again.

    The Philips aren’t road legal either. But they’re not gonna blind oncoming drivers like the Baja’s.
