    I've always thought it was because yellow was the best light for true fog conditions. It also looks pretty cool too.

    The yellow light reflects less in fog than white light, hense better vision.

    Plus they look cool !!!!

    You can go to Lamin-x website and buy the yellow tint stickers that go over them... Like $20 with shipping.

    Slimcubby would be your best bet. I got the bulbs because I can't afford the HIDs right now and I got the H10 off ebay for 11.63 incl shipping. Or 9145 IIRC

    i've got a 2011 speedway blue tacoma access cab 4 cylinder 4x2 model and it didnt come with any fog lights. I'm trying t get fog lights ASAP and I think the yellow fog lights would look best on it. can anyone send me a link of them or something?
