    All,

    I have been seeing a ton of posts with pics of great looking trucks with yellow Fogs.

    I'm interested in adding this to my truck so how have you all gone about adding this/do you recommend it/what tips and tricks do you have?

    Thanks!

    I bought something like these from Amazon. I only used the lens. I re-used everything thing else from stock fog. I kept the OEM in case I want to swap back. They have held up good for the last year.

    Alot of people just take the stock lens and wrap it with yellow film and use a heat gun to stretch the film around curves.

    I used hella optilux yellow bulbs when I ran my stock fogs.

    They worked great in snow and sleeting conditions. On a clear night they did not help much, but did throw some light out there.

    Its gonna depend on the manufacturer, model, lens, bulb, wattage/amperage, etc... or if you just added yellow/amber tint on stock lens, etc..... Or added amber/yellow bulbs in the stock foglights. Mine were about the same. They are better in the snow though than Oem. There is a 4 bulb LED conversion too.

    Quite possibly the most professional and exhaustive review of fog lights for Tacomas (and other vehicles) ever written. It's a bit long, but it's really good. Oh, and the differences between clear, amber and true selective yellow are also well covered.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/the-led-sae-j583-fog-pod-fog-light-review.554813/

    PS: I have the Diode Dynamics SS3 Selective Yellow Fogs and wouldn't trade them for the world.

    The SS3 is worth it's weight in gold. I have NEVER had a fog light that could compare to these.
    It's a game changer. :thumbsup:

    I used the Cali raised brackets and went with the amber led pods. I like the look and the function of ambers

    So the best two options I would recommend would be the fogs that @MattCowsmasher just installed. I tagged him so I’m sure he’ll post here or you can pm him.

    or...

    I just installed these bulbs from @CaliRaisedLed
    https://caliraisedled.com/products/tri-color-fog-light-replacement-bulb

    I love them because they fit in the stock housing and you can cycle through
    white
    amber
    or mix of the two.

    They are awesome! Here are a couple pics for reference...

    For those on a budget I picked up a set of Sylvania 9145 Fog Vision bulbs for around $40 a pair. Working 3rd shift I am always driving in the dark and on the foggy mountain it definitely helps out. It isn't the magical elixir most are looking for, but it helps alot. Drive carefully and slow!

    I think OP is looking for some DOT I’m not sure some of these examples are legal in traffic?

    I love my Rigid DOT fogs but if I knew about the DD pro DOT fogs I would have gone for those. The numbers on paper look great. Especially for the price.

    Correct. If he wants to use them on the street, he should only be looking at SAE J583 compliant fogs. Some of the other fogs available out there are pretty awesome, but will just blind folks on the street.
