If you’re the proud owner of a Jeep Wrangler, the chances are you take it out and about with you wherever you go. You may be traversing the city, the suburbs, or the Great Outdoors; it really doesn’t matter; the Wrangler is hands down one of the greatest rides out there.
However, while you’re out and about, despite the weather reports trying their hardest, you never know what conditions you’re going to find yourself in, so it’s important you’re as prepared as possible. For example, how prepared are you if you’re miles from home and you find yourself out in thick fog?
Whether you’re on or off the road, fog can strike anywhere, and in addition to slowing you down and hindering your arrival time of wherever you’re going, it can also be incredibly unsafe, regardless of whether it’s you who can’t see, or another driver who can’t see you.
Nevertheless, the solution to this is simple. Get yourself a pair of special fog lights to illuminate the path ahead of you. If you’ve already started searching, you’ll already know just how many options there are available, and how overwhelming these decisions can be when trying to find the right ones for you.
To help you make the right decision the first time around, we’ve gone out of our way to narrow down all the fog lights available and condensed our selection to just four of the best. We’ve taken everything here into account, ensuring that you have the best fog lights for your Jeep Wrangler.
SUPAFREE 2pc 4-Inch 30W Cree LED Fog Lights Len Projector
To start off our list, we’ve chosen this leading LED fog light kit that’s best for budget-conscious drivers but remains a high-performance bulb set. Each bulb runs at 30-watts, which fits this set into the high output category.
This means you’ll have more than enough light to pierce through any fog that you come up against, ultimately providing you with maximum visbility. This level of light is all thanks to the integrated Cree chip, a leading technology that maximizes the performance of your bulbs while maintaining a high energy efficiency.
In total, this equals around 1020 Lumens. It’s also worth noting that is a Powerfrugal set. This means the color temperature averages around 6000K, which ultimately produces a bluish white light; ideal for cutting through fog.
In terms of lifespan, the manufacturers report this as being around the 50,000 hours mark, and we’ve heard very few complaints of them not reaching this milestone. However, do note that these bulbs are compatible with all kinds of Wrangler ranging between the years of 1994 and 2015, so make sure you’re checking the year.
On a final note, while these bulbs don’t come with installation instructions, we found it incredibly easy to stick them into the sockets and wire them all up. If you do require assistance here, there’s plenty of support that can be found online.
- Capable of producing up to 1020 lumens of light
- Produces a color temperature of 6000K thanks to Cree chip technology
- Holds an average lifespan of 50000 hours
- Easy to install
- Doesn’t come with installation instructions
- Not suitable for more modern Wranglers
Xprite 4-Inch 60W LED Fog Lights for Jeep Wrangler (1997-2018)
If you’re looking for something equally as powerful with many similar features, but with a much wider range of compatibility, the Xprite could be exactly what you’re lookingfor.. This is a 60W set which means you’ll be able to enjoy the benefits of 30W per bulb, which means a super bright light to illuminate the foggiest journies.
These high-output bulbs come with 10W CREE LED technology and an average operating range of 9v-30v. As a combined total, this equates an incredible 4800 Lumens or 2400 lumens per bulb, which is incredibly bright. Of course, this maximum level is achieved while on full beam.
As with the other bulbs, these ones come with a color temperature of 6000K which emits a blue/white light, and developers claim these lights have a maximum lifespan of around 50000 hours. So far, we haven’t seen any reports claiming otherwise.
These bulbs also come with plug and play technology, which makes them incredibly easy to install, although the Xprite recommends that you invest in professional installation for the best, most hassle-free experience. This is, of course, optional, but not necessary if you’ve changed your bulbs before.
However, unlike the other bulbs listed above, these ones are compatible with a much wider range of Wrangler. This range spans between the years of 1997 and 2018, as well as a ton of other models, including Sport, Sahara, 2-door, 4-door and many more.
The downside to this is that some of the older models, around 2003 and before, may require a special mounting bracket for the bulbs to fit properly, but this has been easily arranged by contacting Xrite directly. Apart from that, these bulbs are as good as it gets!
- Up to 50000 hours average lifespan
- A collective total of 4800 lumens for cutting through fog
- Plug in and Play technology for easy installation
- Compatible with Wranglers ranging from 1997 to 2018
- May require a professional installation service for trickier models
- Some older models may require a special mounting bracket for the best fit
SUNPIE 4-Inch CREE LED Fog Lights with RGB Halo for Jeep Wrangler
If you’re looking for something a little different to bring to your fog lights, you may not need to look further than this. Bear with us. Firstly, let’s talk about the specs. This bulb set comes with two 4-inch bulbs and is compatible with a range of Wrangler models ranging between the years of 1997 and 2018.
These bulbs have also been DOT, SAE and E-Mark approved, ensuring they are legal for road use, despite their colorful features. Colorful features? Okay, with this set, you’ll be able to download the free iOS or Android app to control the RGB LED halo that rings each bulbs.
This feature allows you to change the color of the lights to whatever color you fancy, adding a pleasing and attractive aesthetic that you cannot find with other bulbs. Whether you want to show off your Wrangler, make things a bit interesting while you’re driving, or simply because you think the unique colors look good, this set should be at the top of your list.
However, everything else here, bar the RGB light rings, is very similar to the other bulbs. That includes the stated 50000-hour lifespan, a high-output of 30 watts with an average voltage range of 12-23-volts, and a grand total of 1020 lumens, which is actually slightly less than some of the other bulbs listed here.
In short, we love these Jeep Wrangler fog lights, and they really are awesome. While they come with all the features you would expect from a professional pair, the RGB light rings are a really nice touch for those looking for something extra. However, you will need to consider the above average price tag since this kit is slightly more expensive than the rest.
- A 50000-hour lifespan
- Full compatibility with a range of Wranglers between the years of 1997 and 2018
- RGB light rings for a beautiful aesthetic touch
- Produces 1020 Lumens of light per bulb
- Slightly more expensive than other fog light kits
- Requires an app download and compatible iOS or Android device
LX-LIGHT 7-Inch Daymaker LED Headlights and 4-Inch LED Fog Lights
With a name like Daymaker, you automatically expect these bulbs to be outstanding. True to its word, while you may be replacing your fog lights, if you’re planning on fully upgrading your set up, this will be the only all-in-one kit you’re going to need.
This is because not only do you have access to two 4-Inch LED fog lights that come with all the features and functions that the other bulbs have (bar the RGB light rings), you also have access to two 7-inch LED headlights, totaling four high-output bulbs that guarantee maximum visibility.
All four bulbs included have the 50000-hour lifespan and high-performance CREE output, with a color temperance of 6000K. More so, these bulbs are completely waterproof with a rating of IP67, which is ideal if you plan on taking your Wrangler off the road and deep into the fog.
Compatibility isn’t an issue here since they fit many of the Wrangler models ranging between the years of 1997 and 2017. However, while they may be compatible with more recent models, you’ll need to check the sizes before making a purchase since you may need a special mounting bracket for a perfect fit.
We specifically like the fact that each bulb comes with a built-in anti-flicker device, which is a feature that not many other bulbs have, all while these actually remain cheaper than other sets.
Included with your purchase, we found everything you’ll need to complete the installation of all the bulbs yourself, including the necessary adapters and instructions on how to wire them up, ensuring an easy process which shouldn’t take longer than an hour or two.

As you can see, the industry has currently reached a peak at what it can achieve when it comes to fog lights for your Jeep Wrangler. However, this is all the technology you’re going to need when it comes to cutting through the fog on a weathersome day.
Any of the four brands and products we’ve listed above are ideal choices when it comes to replacing or upgrading your bulbs, and with CREE LED technology, you’ll have never known your bulbs to be brighter, more aware, nor provide a safety level as great as these bulbs achieve.
