You shouldn't get much distance from foglights in the 1st place,would defeat the whole purpose of "fog lights".

There are a couple things going on here.. firstly, something is wrong with your existing headlight setup. So very few describe what you are describing, and we all have the same headlights (at least we all started with the same ones).

If your front end dips that badly when you hit your brakes, you've got suspension problems.

If you can't see in front of you, either your eyes are worse than typical or your headlights are either misaligned horribly, or there is an issue with the bulbs. Heck, at this point, I'd even go so far as to measure voltage at each headlight bulb- it could be you have a voltage drop and are not getting proper power to the bulbs.

And with high beams on, you should be getting flashed at. You're shining the light right into people's eyes.

Also keep in mind that lights that appear bright when you stand in front of the vehicle and look at them, are NOT always bright on the road. A good example is ANY of those blue tinted Xenon filled bulbs.. look like searing hot plasma when you stare at the headlight.. get behind the wheel and it's a joke.

I'd see about getting your Jeep back to where it should be, because it sounds like something is off; then consider options for upgrading. Personally, I mounted a pair of Hella 500ff 55w lights up front, could upgrade to 100w bulbs if I wanted, but I find that those two lights aimed just right are excellent for the dark, back-country roads I drive every day to work; and I have Michigan whitetail all around me, plus 10 miles of 12' deep drainage ditches to contend with. I can see them both just fine.

IMO they wouldn’t even be worth the $500+ they’re usually sold for.. ugly and have never seen down road pics of them after install, owners seem to disappear from this site when asked for the pics that aren’t in front of their garage door

I'll ask for pics of them. It's definitely under 500 and includes the hids.

Interested. Will save a lot of time if the price is right
My concern was the size of the projector. Doing these in the past for other vehicles, sometimes your limited to a smaller "fog" light size projector due to the size of the headlight and the output has the cutoff but not the brightest you would expect
I get my parts from the retro fit source

I'll ask what size lens the projector has too.

Cant say much yet, but there could very well be a LED conversion coming out in the future. Using existing LED head lights, looks very promising so far. None of cobbled together stuff you see
