    Got a set that's fogged up beyond all hell. Looking to replace with something cheap-ish and LED. What y'all got?

    For the record, this is not for my own truck. My own truck has the Diode Dynamic SS3 Max's but my girlfriend doesn't wanna spend money like that on hers.



    These on Amazon have decent reviews;

    Just to note these have the polarity reversed but that is easily overcome.

    Just noticed the eBay link is for Tacoma and they don't seem to have Tundra listed. Will keep looking.

    They look good on the truck.

    They will fit the tundra. Swipe right on the photos til about third or fourth. It says 07-12 Tundra but they will fit 2013 also.

    Edit 8th photo

    Mine for comparison. But she's not trying to spend Diode Dynamic money

    I drive with my fogs on at night all the time, I dont want to be one of those jerks that has the super bright fog lamps that blind everyone. Is that an issue with these?

    Definitely not. They have a very distinct cutoff. I took the adjusters off the OEM fogs and used them on the new LEDs

    They change to amber when the turn signal is activated.

    Thinking about getting these fogs to match my new headlights. Do you have any nighttime output shots of them?

    I don’t have any night shots specifically but I can say if your looking for high output these are not them.

    Flip the plug and plug it in upside down. If that works. Then swap the pins on the light side connector if you want the connector to clip fully. I ran them upside down for a while without issues.

    Man if only they were brighter!! The look and color seem to match well

    I was looking at some XBs but I don’t think the color temp of those will match

    lookwise, they’re perfect though!

    They're not bad. I mean, they aren't as bright as my DD's but they also didn't cost $500+

    I installed the same set after seeing this thread. Work well enough I guess. I don't drive much after dark, but they sure look better than the originals.
