Can I see some HID fogs? Opinions wanted..

I already have 8000ks in my headlights. I'm considering picking up some 9154's for fog lights. However I'm debating on going with something like 3000ks for the yellow look, or 8000ks to match the headlights...

Which do you have? Hows the light output?

Thanks for the pics. HID fogs or the quad off-road lights is what I'm considering...(photoshop)

I'd do 3k in the fogs, 4300/5k in the off-road lights (when you get them), and leave your headlights.

EDIT - Never mind the HID in the off-road light part.

Do you want a lot of extra light? Four offroad lights will light up a pretty far ways away depending on how you aim them and what pattern you get. If it were me, I would just buy some Silverstar bulbs for the fogs and do the light bar/lights. I miss having my four Hellas on my truck.

Yes looking for a ton of extra light, also would like some high beams to be able to 'flash' if need be. I'm moving back out to the desert, I'll be going out at night a few times I bet.

Here's my HID how-to with a fog light section...

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ad.php?t=62147

I highly suggest 3000k or 4300k. 3000k(yellow) cuts through fog a crap ton better than anything white or blueish. BUT...if you experience no fog or snow, i think you'd be fine with matching your heads and fogs.
