b2 Tim, might I ask what type of fog lights you put in. Also, were you able to install them into the opening in the stock bumper or not.

Fog Lights

I went to Auto Zone and bought a kit of two small rectangular lights. They are about 1.5 "by 3". I looked at my bumper and decided that the best place to attach them was in the center of the plastic bumper piece. I attached them to two existing plastic tabs that are in the center lower openings of the bumper, thank you Ford. Then I grounded them to a near by screw, and ran the positive line up to the under hood relay box on the drivers side. My truck had a spare socket for charging a trailer battery. I used that socket to wire up a spare relay I had for the lights. They only draw about 8 AMPS. Now the lights only burn when the engine is running. They will not burn in accessory mode, which is a good thing for drive-in theaters and the like. I aim them low so I can see the ground in front of my bumper, necessary if I go off road.

FWIW, I did the same thing. Used the existing holes in the bumper and drilled thru the plastic part on top of the bumper, centering the hole to mount the lights. Worked like a charm.

I added one to my gallery. It was almost dark when I took the photo. I'll get a better one when I get a chance (in daylight next time).

Wish I had a digi camera

Those look nice Brian. I put mine a little lower, in the holes where air comes in the bottom of the bumper. At least that is how my 2003 is set up. I got a surprise after hooking them up. Since they are some what recessed into the bumper, there is some light spillage back onto my aluminum AC condenser. This makes my front end behind the grill glow, kinda cool, the way it turned out.
