Factory Foglights

Without taking them apart what size bulb does the factory fogs use? I want to order a pair. I tried the search with 0 results.

my '01 originally came with 9145's which were only 42 watts. so, i upgraded to a 9005, which is 65 watts. nothing like 130 watts of light instead of 84!

i have run my 65 watt 9005's in my fogs for 6 years. no melted lens, no melted wiring harness either as some will claim.


if the foglight lens melts if an aditional 23 watts is added, something is wrong with YOUR lens.
