Jeep LED Fog Light Upgrades: Review of the Four Best Options.

If you are looking to upgrade your Jeep Wrangler JK fog lights, you’ve probably thought about making the switch to LED. Here is a video that talks about four of the most popular LED fog light options for the Jeep JK. This video will walk you through all the specs of the different LED fog lights, show you the pros and cons, and walk you through the installation of each light in a Jeep Wrangler JK front bumper. The video does go in-depth on each LED light, so we’ve broken the video down for you. After watching this video you’ll be ready to make the choice of what LED fog light is best for your Jeep JK.

This video reviews the Truck-Lite 80275, the JW Speaker 6045, the JW Speaker 6145, and the Vision X 2″ 10w Solstice Solo.

 

The first two LED Fog Lights reviewed for the Jeep JK are the Truck-Lite 80275, and the JW Speaker 6045. Both of these LED Lights are PAR36, 4.5″ lights, and as you can see from the video, both of these lights use extra brackets to mount them from behind the JK bumper. At 8:34 you can watch the steps to install both of these lights.

Here’s a quick look at the specifications of the Truck-Lite 80275 and the beam pattern it gives off. The 80275 is a great cost saving option for new LED fog lights especially if you already have the Truck-lite LED headlights.

Here’s a quick look at the specifications of the JW Speaker 6045 and the huge beam pattern it gives off.

These next two options are great because they have built in brackets for an easy behind the bumper installation. These are the JW Speaker 6145, and the Vision X 2″ 10w Solstice Solo. At 18:54 you can watch the mounting of these two lights in a Jeep bumper.

Here’s a look at the specifications of the JW Speaker 6145. The design is a little smaller than the 6045 predecessor, but that allows the light to fit just as well as the original stock fog light housing. Here you’ll also see the impressive beam pattern that has a great color.

And the last LED fog light reviewed is the Vision X 2″ 10w Solstice Solo. Here you’ll see the specs and the beam pattern. This fog light was designed for off-road use and gives off a long beam of direct light.

Truck-Lite 80275 Review Video and Jeep Install Tricks

If you own a Jeep Wrangler, you’ve probably looked at upgrading the foglights and headlights on it with HID or LED. Finally there is a really good, in depth review about a popular Jeep LED fog light option. The video is located here, but it’s pretty long so we broke it down for you. Just click on each section below to watch that part of the video. This video talks about the features of the PAR36 (4.5″)  80275 LED Light from Truck-Lite. Installation of the Truck-Lite 80275 is shown in a Jeep Wrangler JK bumper as a fog light.

 

The Truck-Lite 80275 is an affordable LED replacement for the common PAR36 size light. The Truck-Lite 80275 gives 280 lumens, draws .84 Amps of power, is DOT Approved, has a 3-year warranty, and is made in the USA.

At 5:07 in the video you can see different versions of LED PAR 36 lights: The JW Speaker 6045  is a more costly LED replacement for the Par 36 size light, but is much brighter. The JW Speaker gives 750 lumens, is DOT approved, has a life-time warranty, and is made in the USA.

At around 6:23 in the video you can see different types of mounts like a universal rubber PAR36 pedestal mount that will work for any of these lights.  Shown here is a rubber mount and pedestal to hold and mount the light. This would be a great option for fog lights mounted on the top of a bumper.

At 6:54 in the video a different type of mounting bracket is shown. These are aluminum fog light brackets for mounting the 4.5″ LED lights to the inside of a Jeep Wrangler JK bumper. These brackets are installed from behind the bumper and clamp the light firmly in place. Watch here for some great tips and tricks to get the best fit possible for a LED housing replacement.

At 12:36 you can see different wire harness adapters that make the Truck-Lite 80275 plug into the factory Jeep fog light wiring without any modifications. The new Truck-Lite LED replacements can be manually soldered and hardwired in, but an adapter is available for an easier plug and play install. The first is a 9145 style fog light bulb adapter, (common in 07-09 Jeep Wranglers) and the second a 2504 style fog light bulb adapter for 2009 and up Wranglers.

Lastly, at around 15:28 you get to see  the products in action. The original stock fog light bulbs in the Jeep JK are somewhat dim and yellow.  Here you can see how much brighter and whiter the different LED fog light replacements are. The fact that these products can be used largely as a plug and play upgrade is pretty exciting to anyone who needs brighter, whiter lights in the fog location.
