LED Fog Lights

Can anyone point me in the right direction or have experience they want to share with converting the fog lights to LED projectors? I am working on switching all my lights to LEDs and I think it would look awesome if the fog lights matched the head lights in appearance. Any help is appreciated. I do plan on posting threads for this work as well.

There's some available for the main headlights, but idk about foglights. Those things can screw with the eyes pretty easy though, even if they are properly aimed and all that. I wouldn't wish you to drive a vehicle you hate, but anything other than standard halogen, something about the light itself just messes with the eyes. Guess I'm one to talk though....trucking company I just signed onto uses the stupid things in every one of their trucks....not that I plan on doing much night driving, but I still hate to drive a truck with those lasers, especially an automatic.

I put these LED bulbs in my fog lights and love them. They're a lot brighter but they're not blinding, they still work good in fog, and they match my LED headlights perfectly.

I take it you want to keep the light white as in what the stock bulbs are.
My take on fog lights are that you can't call it a fog light if the light is white because we all know white doesn't cut through fog.

Now I switched over my stock white bulbs for LED yellow bulbs and man let me tell you they are really nice looking at night and boy do they cut through the fog.

So if you are looking for yellow let me know and I will tell you were I got them and they were just $21.

I've tried several different LED H13 bulbs in my headlights. Most of them were not very good... I found that the 3 and 4 sided bulbs were very bright but put out a horrible light pattern that did nothing but blind oncoming traffic. Now I'm using "Auxbeam LED Headlight Bulbs NF-S1", and they work terrific. The light pattern seems pretty close to the stock halogen bulbs but they are much brighter and whiter, and I have to assume that they're not blinding to oncoming traffic as I have never been flashed in the 6 months or so that I've been using them.

I'd post a link, but I'm at work and they block Amazon here...
