      It plugged right in, it has the correct connector end. The only picture they show of a connector end is that of a H7, not the H10/9145/9005 that we need for our 2016. They are sold out of the H10 bulb currently. There are some on ebay though, thats where I got one set. I will post a link. As you can see, they have the right ends.

      I believe LED fogs were a late availability on the 2016 models and standard on the 2017.

      based on this threads review of these: JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright Max 50W High Power H10 9145 LED Bulbs for DRL or Fog Lights, Xenon White http://amzn.to/2vYGSeM
      I purchased them immediately on September 6, 2016. One bulb just went bad on September 9, 2017!!!!
      These last one year! I did enjoy them while both worked.

      I'm going to try JDM ASTAR 1200 Lumens Extremely Bright 144-EX Chipsets H10 9140 9145 LED Bulbs with Projector for DRL or Fog Lights, Xenon White http://amzn.to/2vOcmA4

      $29.99 vs $19.99

      I will update with a side by side comparison of the bulbs. I hope they last longer than a year. $19.99 a year isn't bad. I might break down eventually and get the Ford assembly $$$$.

      On the left is the one year old JDM ASTAR Extremely Bright Max 50W and on the right the JDM ASTAR 1200 Lumens Extremely Bright

      I'm much more happy with the new cheaper 1200 Lumens bulb!! It appears to fill the housing with more light making it more aesthetically pleasing, even in the daylight. To the naked eye it appears brighter than the 50W. The true test of driving at night: I noticed a difference of light fill when I turned the fogs on and off. In the past with the 50W, I didn't observe as much of a difference.
      I will watch close to see how long these last. If they last only 1 year, I will be more than happy for $19.99!

      You don't want fog lights that are really bright if you use them as intended. Seems you are really using them as 'driving' lights. My fog lights came as LED and they also 'fill in' at night but what they fill in doesn't really make much of a difference to what the headlights light up so I never use them, even on unlit country roads.

      Yes, within the constraints of the Illinois vehicle code I am using them as auxiliary driving lamps.

      Peter, you never use your factory LED fog lights? Can I have them? :)

      Don't think the dealer would be too happy. I lease my vehicles.;)

      The above thread is from June of 2015. Currently Feb of 2018. Any solution to adding fog lights to 2016-2017 Explorer?

      We've had a lot of winter/rainy weather lately and I find the foglights are quite useful for seeing pedestrians. The headlights themselves are pretty weak overall, so I find the foglights supplement them .

      Did you add your fog lights after purchase or were they built in?

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      If you are looking at adding them to your Base Explorer you should be in the following thread found using the Forum's 'Search' feature. Adding fog lights to 2016+ Base Explorer? Good luck.
