Changed some lights to LED

I changed out my headlights to LED, very easy.
I changed out my DRL'S again very easy.
I changed my Fogs to bright white halogen. Not quite matching the other two but close.
Interior changed:
1. Dome/Map. - kinda a pain to do these

2. Both rear passenger lights attached to the grab bar.
3. Both truck lights - super easy
4. Both license plate lights.

The cabin/trunk and license plate lights are awesome very bright but not rediculous.

What made you not use LEDs for the fogs? I switched all front lights to the same kelven (brighness) so they have a clean white matching light. Also replaced the amber markers to smoked ones.

I can't speak for the poster you mention, but I will say LED fogs seem to overpower the headlights a bit.
I've been flashed by oncoming drivers and it seems it's a result of running the fogs all the time. I now only use them in poor weather - as they are intended.

When you did the interior and license plate to led, did it set off any codes? Thanks.

I noticed the same thing. Wasn't sure if it was the headlights or fogs but pretty sure it's the fogs. The LED beam is too strong and in was getting flashed often by on coming drivers.

I've since gone back to halogen for headlight and fogs but may put the led headlights in again.

Little off topic but I wonder if using halogen in the winter is more beneficial as it will melt snow and ice off the headlight lens instead of catching it and blocking light.
