    Had a quick question

    Just installed some LED fog lights on 'El Tundy. Was wondering if anyone knew of some plug and play bulbs that would best match the color of the LEDs? I would go with aftermarket headlights entirely but trying to keep the truck as stock as possible, just trying to get a little light upgrade and a cleaner look.

    Thanks y'all!

    You can match them, you just need to know what color your LEDs are. Those look like they may be close to 6000k. I’m sure you can get some great recommendations from some of the more light savvy members here.

    Quick observation:
    You have only half the amount of bugs on the front of your truck as I do. To color match your lights you must ensure no more car washed until the lights are evenly coated. At that point you have to spray a thick clear coat over the bugs to hold them in place.

    Voila!!! You have matching colored lights

    This is science, right @WarEagleSteve ?

    In all seriousness, which fogs did you get, which color did you choose, and can you purchase the headlight bulbs from the same manufacturer? Bulbs are hard to perfectly match once you get them off cycles especially if they aren't the exact same specs

    Got 'em in a trade. They look like 5500k-6000k as mentioned above.
