    Thinking about running 9005 bulbs in the OEM fogs. I'm wondering if anyone has done this? I know the plug is the same as the h10 bulbs. Searched around, didn't find anything. My bad if this is a repeat.

    Any help would be great.

    i just put 9005's in my fogs a few days ago, they fit fine. ive only drove for about 2 hours with them though. im going to keep an eye on the wire plug, housing and lense for any melting because they are 60 watt high beam bulbs. wallymart had the ge nighthawk bulbs on clearence so i tried them along with my low beam bulbs, it made a notice able differance, nothing major
