Fog Light LED bulbs are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your vehicle. From the factory, most vehicles come with halogen bulbs, which project in a yellowish light. By replacing them with LEDs, you can create a modern appearance with the cool white light of LEDs.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!

Please note: Fog Light LEDs are primarily for cosmetic upgrade. Some models may not provide an increase in output.


HP48: This bulb is designed with 48 Epistar 3014 LED chips. Thanks to the cap on the top, the light from this High Power Bulb is shined backwards and away from the bulb, not straight out. This means the output is excellent, because it uses the vehicle's housing completely, which then shines the light much more uniformly.

XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more, under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

XML2: Two opposing genuine CREE XM-L2 chips, driven at high power by self-contained regulator unit, in an attractive cast-aluminum housing. Fully waterproof, non-polar, modular design. 

Fitment. SMD, HP, and XP bulbs use an inject-molded terminal, with a full-size base connector, designed for exact replacement of your factory bulb. The XML2 bulb fits in the same way, but also requires an additional 2" of clearance behind the bulb socket- see pictures.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, bright, cool white hue. The XML2 is also available in natural white, pure white, and yellow.


Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb, compared to the factory bulb.

HP48: 280 lumens. Slightly lower brightness than factory.
XP80: 510 lumens. Similar brightness to factory.
XML2: 1420 lumens. Much brighter than factory. These are bright!

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum. 

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as CREE, Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While Diode Dynamics bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the Warranty Information page.

  1. 9006 XML2 LED Review by Pugsly75

    I first purchased a pair to replace my fog light bulbs in my 2004 Toyota Avalon. I loved them so much that I ordered and replaced my low beam head lights also. The difference is literally night and day in the light output. Having Cool white (6000K) lights reflect the best off of objects, reflectors in the road and street signs. I was scared at first that they would be too bright and everyone would be flashing there lights at me at night. This was not the case and now I have to replace the head lights and fog lights in my wife's Sequoia. Go ahead and get them, you will not be sorry just be sure to get your head lights aimed after the installation of the LED bulbs. (Posted on 4/26/17)

    Really bright lights (Posted on 6/20/16)

  3. 9006 LED Review by Ken

    I installed these in my 2015 Ram a few days ago. Excellent product. They compliment the 9012 HID Lights I have installed.
    More light to the road at night for better visibility. (Posted on 4/11/16)

  4. 9006 LED Review by Ken

    Received these a few days ago to replace the stock fog lights on my 2015 Ram. Excellent product. Much more light to brighten the road at night. They also go well with the 9012 HID I have installed. Give the truck a better overall look. (Posted on 4/11/16)

  5. Great Product Review by Glass

    The support staff (Justin) helped me find the best match for my HID bulbs, and made sure I would get the amount of light I was looking for.
    I was able to install them, with the anti-flicker mods, in about 10 mins. No problem with the extra back clearance needed.
    They are very bright, and well made. I am looking forward to using them come hunting season. (Posted on 3/11/16)

  6. Good looking Review by Ben

    The LED are too notch. These guys do great stuff. I met Diode Dynamics at Scoobapalooza they had an awesome stand great catalogue too. These fogs are so much brighter than the most expensive bulb Walmart has to offer. The color is rich. (Posted on 10/31/15)

  7. Great Product Review by RamblinJoe

    Shipping was very fast, and packaging was of very good quality.
    The bulbs have a solid feel to them, not some cheap plastic part that you just wait to fall apart. I got the yellow color and they are very bright, color is crisp, will know better when i get into fog and snow later in the year. (Posted on 9/21/15)

  8. Amazing Review by Justin

    These are the top of the line, these are only meant to be used in a fog light application but i use them in my headlights and they still out perform standard bulbs. Not quite as bright as an HID but for what they are designed for they out perform ten fold. couldn't be happier with my purchase (Posted on 9/10/15)

  9. Great Lights Review by Kevin

    These lights are VERY bright. Got them for my 2015 Ram 1500 the brightness is outstanding compared to the stock ones. Very pleased and will purchase these again for other vehicles. (Posted on 8/24/15)

  10. 9006 XML2 LED Review by Tim

    I recently purchased the bulbs for my 2014 Ram 1500 and what an extreme difference they have made! Build quality is excellent and I have no worries about these bulbs lasting. These bulbs also far surpass the factory halogen headlights in brightness while adding that custom look. These lights really make my truck stand out with the cool white color. (Posted on 7/15/15)

  11. XML2 LEDs Review by Bishop

    These LEDs are very bright! Well worth the money. Very easy plug and play installation. They felt very durable. They are so bright that I literally could drive at night with just these fog lights on without using my headlights and see crystal clear! I would recommend these to anyone wanting more visibility. Great product! (Posted on 1/2/15)
