Researching ebay shows the LED housing is a male connection (i guess the pins determine the orientation???) - https://www.ebay.com/itm/17-thru-19-...IAAOSw01JbhusS

When driving through that bomb cyclone winter storm recently to go snowboarding in Colorado, in the heaviest part of it, we found out that our yellow LEDs cut through the snow pretty good. We had to turn off all the other auxiliary lighting, as the white LEDs just reflected off the snow flakes and hurt visibility.

I use my fogs (PIAA mounted in the front Aluminess bumper) quite often. they work great in Fog (Smokey mountains area mostly) since they dont reflect light back at you from fog, rain, and snow.
But, I also use them a lot on Country roads - in conjunction with my Head lights and an additional set of white PIAA LED Driving lights - the fog beam pattern illuminates more of the side of the road, and since they are yellow its not as distracting... has helped me spot Deer quicker!

This is a serious question -

i am sure the PIAA LED driving lights are brighter, more reliable, more durable... etc.... and worth the extra $

but if i want to go cheap..... does anyone have these, or similar? Cheap.

Yellow Fogs (and only fogs) are a must for the beach especially if there are folks fishing or campers.
If your a surfcaster or sportsman you know what I talking about.
I had El cheapo lights on my rig for ten years and their worth every bit of the $40 they cost at the time.
Just saying.......

Similar to Twoxentrix, we mostly use our Rigid fog lights on low volume roads to spot large animals earlier. I love having them for that reason.

I just replaced my weak marker lights with these $25 fog lights from amazon. I was looking for better visibility in heavy snow. They certainly don't fill up the coffee can size holes in the bumper, but they're not to bad looking in person. If they make it through the winter I will also replace my backup light with these, seems to be softer light for unloading trailers or setting up camp. Hopefully, another snowstorm will hit Reno/Lake Tahoe soon so we can test them out.
