Does this look stupid?

I found some 55w fog lights and was going to put them on top of my bumper until I found holes already in the bottom, so I just bolted them in and plugged them up. I want to replace my bumper with a 2003 but can't figure out the different models of them. I want one that is either all gray or chrome with the gray valance. So if anyone knows which that is, I would love to know. Anyway, so this is probably just temporary, but does it look stupid? They work well.

Total cost of mod: $14.82

Its your truck and no one elses. If you like it go for it. Personally I would be scared of them hitting something on the trail, but thats just me. And I have seen many worse mods, so dont worry.

Well, I was really iffy about it after I threw them on there, but then coworkers told me they looked good, so I thought I would consult the experts. Think they would look better on top of the bumper instead?
