    Yellow actually cuts thru fog better than a white light.

    Chris is just like that...

    well, except for that guy who was told his bearings were f*cked and that he should probably take up bird watching as a hobby rather than working on his truck.

    But other than that he's always willing to give advice, even to noobs like us.

    :laugh:

    I have yellow fog lights but I only run them in the winter. We get some really nasty fog between November and March and the yellow fog lights really help cut thru the fog. I didn't believe yellow fog lights helped at first until I experienced the heavy fog when I moved here 5 years ago.

    I also run them in my wife's Honda Pilot.

    You can get yellow film to put over the fog light lenses. Or you can buy yellow bulbs. I'd rather buy bulbs if I was going to do it. And as mentioned yellow gives better visibility in fog and other inclemate weather conditions. Although I've heard some argue it makes no difference. But I've heard enough people say it helps alot to believe that it does make a difference.

    Notice the tree far left in the bottom pic compared to the top pic and notice the woods and lacrosse goal (woods are a good 80 yards away) in the background of the bottom pic compared to the top. Crazy!

    I used Lamin-X covers on mine, They're ok. One of them bonded really well and all the tiny air bubbles went away after a day or two but the other one came up a little after I put it on and it happened to rain that night so I have a little spot on the bottom that doesnt stick. Every time I walk by I press it down but it always comes back up. I even tried to heat it up with a blow dryer but it didnt work. Other than that I like the way they look, especially on white Tacomas.

    5100's all around - fronts at 1.75", 265/70/17 Bridgestone Revo 2, HID headlights and fog lights, factory skid plate, ss exhaust tip, tube steps, Access roll-up tonneau cover, Redline hood struts, 6 D-rings, seat MagLite, LED dome, fumoto oil drain, DTRL, fog light anytime, Kenwood/Clarion speakers, Pop-N-Lock 5300, LED bed lights and a few other things...
    I had the yellow lens covers (LaminEx) on for a few months. I thought it would look good with red but I later decided against them. I would probably like the HID's in yellow but I don't care for the lens covers on my truck.

    It looks overly "ricer" for my taste.
