Brightest stock fog light bulb

Looking for a brighter fog light bulb in my taco, what is the maximum wattage that i can put in before things go bad, just put in some silverstars and was not impressed, i no i can't get them as bright as the headlight but how bright can i go.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The bulb that would put out most light is an HID (kit, not just bulb). Stock wattage is 42, while the Silverstars are about 30 or so.

Get a pair of 65 watt bulbs in the 9005/HB3 size, they're not exactly the same as 9145/H10's, but they'll fit in the stock housings with a little bit of wiggling... waaaaaay brighter.

Yup, I got some 4000k halogens that I put in mine, and I haven't had any problems with them at all. I've got 6000k HID's for my headlights, and between the fogs and the headlights, they light up the road clear as day.

The bulbs that I used were Philips Crystal Vision Ultra 9005's. I got them at Napa... Can't remember how much they were to be honest. If you compare one of the 9005 bulbs to the 9145 bulbs, you'll see that one of the tabs is a little bit longer, but it'll still fit into the stock housing with a little bit of wiggling... You don't really need to force them in. They're technically for headlights, but I've never been flashed or bothered by cops.

I have H10 for my fog light, does that tell you anything about it's intensity? I don't know much about light bulb. But I know my H10 is more than 30 Watt (I have to double check the containers it came with).
