    I hate the stock fog lights that came with my TRD. . .pretty much worthless IMO. . .I am very interested in the G4 KC's . . .question is, should I be looking at the white or amber colored ones. . . pros/cons between the two?

    Yeah, the amber cuts through the fog better. I live in the mountains and get both snow and fog, white lights just reflected back at me. once I changed to amber everything was much clearer :)

    I have the Amber G4’s and absolutely love them from a functional perspective. One of the best and easiest upgrades to my truck.

    I like the Nokya NOK7618 Hyper Yellow bulbs. They're not exactly Amber, but better. Eurostyle yellow light at 2500 K. Best color for poor weather conditions.

    Seeing how long I can keep stock(ish) OVTuned
    I prefer 'selective yellow" over white, or amber.

    All I can say to that is that I've had clear, amber, and now hyper yellow. For me the hyper yellow works best.

    The right beam pattern in white works just fine but most guys tend run yellow
