LED Kit for Fog Lights

Community,

Im interested on installing a Fog Light LED kit in my car. To be specific, for the lights located in the bumper. Must of my driving is during the night and I need very bright lights.

I currently have HID but they are burning the lens of the lamp and the bulbs get burn very easy. Any suggestion?

Do it right or keep coming back. Whether or not these will fit is a different story.

Yellow film is optional, they should be 5500K - 6000K.

I've done that before on Rav4s. You modify the fog light relay and add a wire to the fog light switch and the fog lights can be used at any time. I haven't done it with my Highlander, but I plan to.

My fog light circuit is separate from the main wiring harness. It gets signal when the key is on ACC or ON and it gets its power from the battery. eBay fog light kit, third set of fog lights after eBay halogen, eBay LED, then current Morimoto Projector LED. They are basically my DRLs.

What if I want to install LED as DLR? Will the do the high beam lights as well?

Do they do that now? Given that you have fog lights. It's an answer you can find yourself as I drive a Camry and not a Highlander.

So it's a kit found on EBay to power the relay? BTW maybe I missed it but the lights shown in this writeup do they fit the 2011 HL SE with fogs?

My Camry is prewired for fog-lights but I did not use it. So I have a aftermarket eBay fog-light wiring harness and it is up to the user to hook it up.

So funny as I have the same one...it's stupid bright lol. I got flashed few times within a week so I turn them off (I drive on back roads often but there are some traffic still) if there's an oncoming.

Of course for my high beams, I have the dual XHP70 chipped LED I got directly from China that pumps out 13,000 lumens. Holy moly I fell in love instantly. Almost too bright when there are road signs.
