There are times when you drive, and it’s next to impossible to see in front of you… even with your high-beams on. Times like this can be pouring rain or worst of all… fog. Whether your vehicle comes with factory fog lights, or none at all.. you’re going to want to have the best light output.
This can be achieved by either replacing your current bulbs, or placing aftermarket fog lamps right underneath your headlights.
If you’re at all intimidated by the installation process… don’t be. We included a video in the end of this guide for you to watch, and see how to do it. In the meantime, here’s a full list showing you the top 7 fog light bulbs and fog light housings you can get for your vehicle.
