Nissan Xterra Fog Light LED Bulbs



We carry LED bulbs for replacement of your Xterra fog lights, in all major sizes. They are available in HP, XP, and XML styles. This will make your fog lights a nice bright white that closely matches factory HIDs! Just simple plug and play, replace the bulb and you are good to go!

We carry the brightest, highest-quality bulbs at the lowest prices. Your order will ship same day, and we're here if you need us for support and service. And we do not raise prices to astronomical levels- We're breaking that market trend, and offering you great, low prices, every day. These LED bulbs are designed by us here in St. Louis, and every bulb carries with it a three-year limited warranty.

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb model 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: 265 lumens. Slightly lower brightness than factory.

XP80: 510 lumens. Similar brightness to factory.

XML2: 1410 lumens. Much brighter than factory. These are bright!

*XML2 is available in 3000K Yellow / 4000K / 5000K / 6000K Color Temperatures

Please note that most LED fog lights are intended for cosmetic purposes only, and will not project light in the same way that the factory bulbs do. Your car will look great at night, but if you are looking for higher output, we strongly recommend using an HID conversion.

Bulb Design

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: NEW! 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.

These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all modern vehicles.


Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Xterra).


All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

Wow, I like the XML2 5000K, They look blinding. Are they?
The XML2s produce 1,420 lumens (measured), which is quite a bit more than the factory halogen bulbs. However, they won't produce a significant amount of glare due to their unique design.

Our Luxeon replacement housings are the ideal option for applicable vehicles. They produce a wide output pattern with a sharp cutoff.



The Luxeon replacement housings are DOT/SAE compliant and utilize Phillips Luxeon LEDs. They are made with OEM quality components and construction:



We will have a separate thread with more information on the Luxeon housings shortly

Thanks!

id be interested in a comparison between the stock housings and the luxeon led replacement housings.
Stock:



Luxeon LED Housing:



Very significant increase in output. Here's another shot of the Luxeon's output pattern in our 2013 FR-S

thanks for the comparison shots. ive been eyeing the led replacement housings but have yet to see a good shot of the pattern, i like them much better than just replacing the bulbs since it ruins the pattern most of the time making them useless in actual fog. with my hefty bumper i dont think i could fit the XML2 bulbs since the higher position causes less room behind them, so the luxeon replacement housings look like a good option.

The Luxeon housings produce a really clean 5000K color as well

Well I just bit, ordered the fogs, backup, and interior lights. Ill post up what I think when I get them mounted in the Shrock, but I agree, these beamshots above look great. Now I need to research turn signals/ brake etc. Then bumper lights and rack mounted rear lights and Ill be good.

Thanks for the great info so far DD.

I'm curious as to when you'll have more XML2 LED fog lights in "Yellow" available for the Xterra? Went on to order tonight and said you're out-of-stock. Any chance a procrastinator can have them in 13 days for his camping trip!? :D

We are still in the process of developing the Yellow XML2 option. They have been listed as "out of stock" on the site for quite some time, but we haven't made them available for purchase yet.

I'd personally suggest going with the Luxeon LED replacement housings and wrapping them in yellow vinyl for the best performance

I apologize for the confusion that listing may have caused

I went to the site and there is no option for Putco Pure Yellow? Any chance they will be available soon?

Is there anyway you can package multiple items together for shipping (looking at full interior LED swap)? We get raped in Canada for that.
We have the Putco bulbs listed by bulb size on the site, but not in the vehicle-specific listings

Feel free to give us a call if you are having trouble placing an order: (314) 205-3033

We also have plenty of authorized dealers in Canada, if you are looking for someone local to you: http://www.diodedynamics.com/store/index.php/find-dealers/

Thanks!

That's neat didn't know I could search locally for them.

I did check the bulb sizes, nothing listed under H11 for Putco. I did find them under H8 sizes, but I don't think those will fit...am I wrong?
We may not have the H11 in stock unfortunately. The H8's aren't going to fit

The XML2 H11 in Yellow will be back in stock soon if you are looking for substantially more output

So, let me get this straight, I don't necessarily have to buy the housing, just the bulb but the housing makes the light output better somehow? I would like to have it as bright as the image above with the XML2s.

I am curious about your comment about performance on the yellow fogs. Would you mind clarifying? I would like a yellow bulb option in my bumper, what is the difference in performance (not brightness) between the putco yellow and the XM80. With the upcoming XML2's is it a better yellow for fog/snow/sand or is it just brighter as well?

Thank you for the feedback
