I find the OEM fog lights a bit less than useful. I'm thinking of swapping them out for something with a longer range light pattern. Lights seem to be a wasteland of Chinesium crap. Anyone tried this and found a decent setup to replace the OEM fogs?
 
Watching even though I find my fog lights on the 392 much more useful than the lights on my truck or older Jeep.

Baja Designs makes a kit with brackets. They have different choices from Squadron sae/dot approved to pro with amber or clear lenses. I went with the Sports, they may be a little to bright for street. If I had a do-over I would get the SAE.

I have the Baja squadron pros with the wide cornering pattern. They throw a huge amount of light, especially to the sides. Great for seeing and not hitting deer, etc…

Any idea how bright factory fog lights are on 2023?

How much brighter than factory fogs?
 
I replaced OEM fog candles with Diode Dynamics SS3 Max in amber. Night and day difference :)

I second that, I got a lesson on Jeep fogs from Baja Designs the other day and I learned that the bulbs are the same, its the covers that are different.

Sport and Pro are night and day, Sport is all you need.

However, there are flood, spots, amber, etc and for $24.95 per fog you can make whatever ones you have be whatever you want by changing the outer most piece which has the different variations depending on what you want. If anyone needs help with that ambiguous statement let me know and I will lead you to what I am referring to. It is hard to put in writing
