March 28, 2011On my 06 Expedition. Right now fog light bulb is 9145 and I heard that I could use either 9005 or 9006 I`m not sure. But I know that the fitment will be different but some people said that this can be done by trimming and will get more lighting at night?

March 29, 2011From the info that I found the 9005 bulb will fit in place of the 9145, but you have to grind/cut down the alignment tabs on the bulb base.
The 9006 base is to large to fit in the light housing.
I hope this is of some help.
edit: I thought I should add this. Instead of going to all of the trouble to change to 9005 bulbs and run into a heat problem, I would simply switch to SilverStar 9145s. They are definately brighter and no heat issues.
March 29, 2011Thanks for reply back to me. Do you have silverstar 9145? If yes, could you post picture and show the different between regular and silverstar? I have looked at GP Thunder and they are brighter than Silverstar. Only $20 on ebay. Silverstar are really pricey.
