Diode Dynamics is excited to introduce our new SS3 Fog Light Kit for the 2005-2015 Nissan Xterra!


Our SS3 LED Fog Light Kits are now available for the 2005-2015 Nissan Xterra! These bolt-on kits allow you to replace your factory fog lamps with a pair of SS3 LED Pods. Featuring higher output intensity than any other 3” LED pod on the market, our SS3 LED pods have been designed for maximum light output, with custom-engineered TIR optics shining in highly functional beam patterns, all in a compact, durable package.


Focused: Most LED pods on the market, even certain premium options, use outdated technology like reflectors or simple lenses that lose light internally and to glare. By comparison, our custom-engineered total internal reflection (TIR) optic in the SS3 collects all of the light from the LED chips, drastically reducing wasted light and improving total efficiency.


While these outdated optics lose up to 10% of the light output shining through an outer lens, the SS3’s custom-molded TIR optic functions as both the optic and the main lens, dramatically increasing the amount of usable light output.


Functional Output: All SS3 LED Pod beam pattern options were designed with optical simulation modeling, to shape the light output in a highly-functional beam pattern. Making it a perfect option for your factory fog location! We offer these kits in two SAE-compliant optics:

  • Our SAE Driving optic is designed to supplement your high beams, but it’s great for improving general illumination as well. Rather than a typical "spot" pattern, the Stage Series Driving pattern shines in an 18x8 degree spread, providing just enough width to completely light up the road ahead at high speeds.

  • Our SAE Fog optic provides an extremely wide field of illumination, with high-intensity light output over an entire 80-degree spread. It serves as a great upgrade for any factory foglamp, and will fully illuminate the area in front of your vehicle. Choose your output color of 6000K cool white or 3000K selective yellow, which is popular for cutting through inclement weather.
*When installed as a pair and aimed in accordance with your state's regulations, the Driving White pattern meets SAE J581 standard as a Driving/Auxiliary High Beam Light, and the Fog pattern meets SAE J583 standard as a Foglamp, for legal on-road use. Please check your local laws and regulations for aiming, installation, and applicability.


White or Yellow: Our SS3 LED Pods are available in your choice of 6000K cool white or 3000K selective yellow. The white is a 6000K color temperature, which is a true white output, without any blue, and is a perfect match for most OEM LED lights. The selective yellow is a 3000K color temperature, great for high contrast in poor weather or a totally unique look on the road.


Sport/Pro/Max: Stage Series LED Pods are available at three different power levels. All options use high-intensity LED emitters, and TIR optics for unmatched focus and overall output. The sport model uses high-intensity LEDs and is the best bang for your buck you’ll find. The Pro steps things up in a big way, with double the total power. Finally, the Max model is designed with cutting-edge automotive emitters, both for high power and extreme intensity. This brand new technology comes at a cost, but if you’re looking for the absolute best in lighting performance, the SS3 Max is the answer.


Plug-and-Play Installation: These kits feature bolt-on installation, meaning they require no cutting, drilling, or permanent modification! Our SS3 Fog Light Kit for the 2005-2015 Nissan Xterra includes a custom-engineered bracket and bezel for a clean, factory-style appearance.

Each kit will include:
  • Two (2) SS3 3” Round LED Pods
  • Two (2) H11 DT Adapters
  • Mounting brackets and hardware

Note: This kit is a replacement for OEM fog lamps. If your vehicle does not have fog lamps, additional hardware and wiring may be needed for installation.


Proven Reliability: Our SS3 LED Pods have been extensively tested for long-term operation from -40 to 185 degrees F, along with vibration, moisture intrusion, and corrosion testing. All of these tests are completed to SAE standards, just like OEM components!

Do these require use in factory bumper? I don't see why they would but I figured I'd ask about the design

I'll let them confirm, but the brackets appear to mount the lights behind the factory opening and possibly not to the floppy plastic end cap. From the image supplied, part of the lower left corner of the lens is hidden by the bumper. It might be worth considering a Dremel to open it up bigger, then maybe adjust the brackets to push the light further into the opening so less of the light is stuck in that tunnel.

Reason I ask, is I dont plan on having the factory bumper for too long, but I like how these lights pan horizontally . If they are universally mountable it would make the appeal much better to me to spend what they are asking

I'm waiting to hear if I qualify for free shipping even if I order a pair that isn't for the Gen 2...

I have popcorn! Party's at your place. ;)

Our SS3 LED fog light kit for the 05-15 Xterra includes CAD-designed brackets for a flush factory finish.

The custom image included is slightly offset due to their installation. This can be adjusted and corrected!

We've had several of our SS3 LED pods custom mounted for aftermarket bumpers.

If your aftermarket bumped can fit the factory fog lamps our fit should fit without an issue but if you're concerned we do have all product dimensions on our website listings providing all specifications before purchasing.

It's important to note, our included round bezel in this kit could be the issue for fitment on aftermarket bumpers. We do sell alternative front bezels in case required. You can find them in the link below!


We also offer our SS3 LED pods with our universal mounting brackets and hardware for use in other locations than the fog lamp location.


If you have further or immediate questions, please go ahead and give us a call at 314-205-3033 Monday-Friday 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. CST, or shoot us an email at [email protected], and our service team would be happy to assist you further!

Ordered round yellow fogs for front, flush white fogs for rear. I plan to see where I'm going! Thanks again for the code.

Snafu on my part: I already had an account and didn't notice that it was at my old address. I had to have the order cancelled. Appreciate you taking care of it so quickly.

Awesome! No problem at all regarding the code. I'm glad our customer service department could assist you quickly to correct your order!

You'll have to post up some pictures once you have everything installed. We're excited to see your lighting upgrades!

I have a question, seems like most of your products are designed to fit the factory bumpers. Do you have universal adapter install kits for those of us who have aftermarket metal bumpers? example I just picked up an expedition one bumper that has cutouts for fog lights. I could just use the available holes on the flat surface but I would prefer the flush look of recessed fog lights.

Great question!

Did your aftermarket bumper include any type of mounting brackets? If not, our universal Stage Series LED pod listing includes universal mounting brackets and hardware for custom mounting to your application.


If our universal mounting brackets and hardware don't work for your application. A custom bracket may be required to mount them. It's important to note, all listings include product dimensions as well for reference.

Please, feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!
