Did you use this same bulb front and rear? and was it just plug and play?

No I didn't, here is what I used on the front (link below) but please note that at times 95%+/- of the time with the lights on I do get fast blink, but ZERO when the lights are off. Hazards are normal lights on/off and I haven't decided if I want to dive in on the fast flash. The fast did not happen with only the rears changed so there must have been enough resistance with the OEM style front bulbs.

*edit* - yes, plug and play

LED Foglight bulbs

if you actually want light ON the road ..... this style won't do it. The "top" being open like that cuts the light output that would normally go to the sides to the reflector and then sent out and as such useless output. If you want for show or to be seen, ya they'll work for that.

Someone just ordered these for their EX and not sure they will really be of use:

I just ordered these (Halogens) to replace the LED to get actual light output and they are to arrive today and I will try to change them soon.

already installed. They definitely have a good light output, but it's on the 2016 Explorer, with the C/shaped fogs, so maybe that makes a difference. But yes, I definitely have "more" light at night, when running fogs and low beams (which are already LED).

I uploaded some pics on photobucket as well in this thread .

Had the Driverside strut brace and bushing replaced under the CPO coverage to remove the "clunk" with the slight left/right steering adjustment - along with an oil change.
