Since stock fog lights have been used mainly halogen light sources, with the LED technology evolving, and getting more powerful, cheaper and more effective every day, there will be a market for car enthusiasts to upgrade their stock halogen fog lights to LED fog lights. As a professional automotive LED lighting manufacturer, we supply LED fog lights in multiple ways, whether it is to replace the stock fog lights or to retrofit a pair of new LED fog lights onto the vehicle.

LED Fog Light Conversion Kits
LED fog light conversion kits are an excellent way to upgrade the fog light originally using halogen light sources, problem is, the LED fog light bulb conversion kits are not just needed to be careful adjust, and since LED chips are unidirectional which means whichever way the LED chips are pointed is the only way the lights going to shine. And so, if the LED bulbs are made incorrectly and being put inside a projector, it is not going to make a good beam pattern. So, people cannot just buy some random LED light bulb throw it into a project housing and hope it is going to work, the hope for the best strategy is not a good strategy. Here is the goal, mimic the original beam pattern, then see if the LED bulb takes a slim wide beam and blows it out of proportion, if so you know immediately it is not the right way. Having a tight control beam pattern not only help the drivers themselves see better, but it also prevents dangerous glare to oncoming drivers. And that is all the reason why today what we recommend are not LED fog light conversion kits but fog light assemblies and fog light pods.

OEM Fog Light Assembly
Another simple way to upgrade fog lights is to replace them with entire LED-powered assembly housing, which provides an amazing light output and beam pattern that comes with a sharp cut-off and wide field of view, along with a modern LED light appearance. These LED fog lights not only supply light that is superior to incandescent halogen fog lights, but they are also vibration resistant and have a much longer lifespan. OGA offers a wide range of OEM fog light assembly kits that are perfect for replacing and upgrading the OEM fog lights for mainstream vehicle models in the market including vehicles like Toyota, Jeep, Ford, Honda, Mitsubishi, Subaru and Renault, etc., do stay tuned for more applications.

SAE Certificated Fog Light Pods
Whether it is to replace and upgrade the stock halogen fog light, or retrofit and upgrade to a modern LED fog lamp set up, we will have the kit to fit the different needs and preferences for the market. And that is where our SAE certificated 3012 series fog beam pod lights come into play, we use 4000K ZES cube pods as the perfect fog lights. The beams pattern from the 3012 series street legal 3 inches SAE led fog light pods significantly reduce glare, improve contrast and enhance definition. Advanced TIR projector optics with automotive-grade high-intensity OSRAM KW chips allow you to see way better in bad weather conditions. The 3012 series fog lights are SAE/DOT compliant which means they are legal to use on road. That is going to be a huge advantage because they not only allow drivers to have the best beam pattern, but also do not need to worry about blinding other coming drivers or getting pull over. General optics like reflectors or simple lenses lose the light that LED chips produce internally and cause glare, and so, not all of the lights project straight onto the target. But with the custom-engineered TIR optic in the 3012 series, all of the lights from the pod fog lights directly project on only where they are pointed, tremendously reducing glare and enhancing total productivity. Thanks to this unique feature, when coupled with high-intensity OSRAM LED chips, the total intensity of the 3012 series is far better than the other LED light pods using basic optics or reflectors.
