    Just mounted up my new bumper with two 18w LED pods, ive never really been good with electrical that wasnt a simple plug and play. I want to hook them up to my fog light switch, so I bought a male H11 plug to connect to the leads from the light pod so I can connect that to the factory H11 female plug. Am I missing anything or should that all be what's needed?

    So the wires just push into the holes in the green part? The plugs I linked arrives a few hours ago and I have some water proof butt connectors that I was going to use, would the one you linked be a better option, again this is all new to me

    What connectors are on the back of the fogs in the bumper? If it’s just wires then use the ones you have, but you’ll need to check polarity if it’s not marked at the wires. If you can post a pic that should help clear up any confusion.

    It's just red and black wires coming out of the housing of the pod

    Ah ok, then yes, what you posted in the first post is all you need. Waterproof connectors should be fine.

    So are the factory plugs not H11 or did they send me the wrong plugs?

    The first is what I originally ordered. The second is what I'm pretty sure will work

    the new adapters came in, other then the coloring of the wires being off (Black-to-black and red-to-red didn't work, had to go Red-to-black) they went in great and damn these LED Pods are bright, need to tweak the position of them a little bit but overall happy with them
