    looking for bright amber led replacements for drl and fogs for sr5.
    Also may get some small aux bar or pod for behind the grill. Did a quick search and did not see anything but posts or cooler spectrum bulbs.
    Any help is apreciated. Feel free to pm me with a link and delete if a repost.
    I am new here just traded out of a 06 forester to a 16 sr5 4x4

    Thanks for the info. Though i thought the sr5 fogs used h16 bulbs? Not h11. Am I missing something? I guess i can pull a stock bulb out and check.

    I think you have the H11's...55 watt.... the "Limited" Tacos have the lame H16... 19 watt bulbs... Hope you got the H11's. I would also suggest NO LED's for fogs..... Go with Nokya Hyper Yellow H11's.... they are awesome and throw lots of light...the LED's do not throw lite very far...!!

    If you can replace the stock white LED DRL's, I'd like to consider that option also, but I think you gotta tear your headlight enclosure apart..???? :confused:

    OH...ps... I tried the LEDs and they were too long to fit into my H11 fogs...

    My LED's fit fine and light up everything in the fogs. Opt7's are decent.

    nope WRONG. Just pulled the fogs. They are h16.... Installed the nokya yellow h11 in the low beems they cast a nice hue but are dimmer than the stock h11. So stock back in for now...

    VLED's triton in Amber. Awesome quality, and super bright. I opted for the switchbacks which will stay Orange for DRL, blink for turns and then dim while headlights are on.

    So, as stated in my prev post. The sr5 does NOT use h11 fogs as you stated after I said i thought they were h16 which they are. So i was left with a set of h11 bulbs.... So yeah I TRIED them as low beams. Thanks for trying to help but please do not correct someone unless you know what you are talking about. "Correcting" somone by giving them info that is incorrect is not helpfull.

    Sorry man... but I did not state that you had H11's... if you read what I said, I believe I said I "think" you had H11's... again sorry... :(

    I did not feel that I was "correcting you"... please re-read what I said...
