2008-2010 LED Fog Light

Hello
My first own post.

I ordered these from tunersdepot.com,
Nokya OEM Fog Light style with LED projectors.
Here is my Blazer Fog Retrofits before.

Here is the Nokya Fogs with my fog light bypass to run as DRLs. Thanks to Sweeneyp for that wiring diagram.



Please feel free to comment.

Aloha.

Those look great, but dang they aren't cheap ~$400 http://www.tunersdepot.com/Lighting/...ly--95602.html

Why did you switch from the blazers? Did they melt like mine?


Do you have any pics of the output (like on a wall)? I'm curious

You definitely have one of the more modded HL here, from what I can tell (and remember), you've replaced the headlights, fogs, mirrors, and exhaust? Thats a ton!

Hi Sweeneyp,
Thanks for all your threads. I switched from the blazers because I wanted my leds to run as drls. The hids aren't good for drls because as I turn the key through the ignition, they would have turned on and then immediately turned off just as the engine starts up. I didn't want to damage my ballasts, so I disconnected my hid blazers temporarily. Although if I did want to put them back, I suppose I shouldn't be lazy and just remember to turn off the factory stalk switch every time before turning on the car.

Anyhow, I haven't had the time, to take my own pictures. Here is where I was convinced to finally make the purchase, although I did notice the price went way up. When I bought it, it was $250. Here is a link to check out the output.

Here is picture that is NOT MINE. Hope I don't get in trouble for using it. It came from Balancing Act
A Sojourner's Thoughts blog.




Hope this helps.

I'm reading that other site posted it pumps out 900 lumens per LED...not bad at all.

While 900 lumens is good, its still less than the OEM h11. H11 put out 1250 lumens. It will seem brighter due to the color temp, but in terms of raw output, its still sub-par.
