Fog lights...what do u think?

i'm wantin to get an additional set of fog lights for my truck...i'm too cheap to buy a bull bar and i def. dont wanna drill into my bumper, so i think i'm just going to mount them on my tow hooks up front...


APC, model # 505065C
3.5" wide X 3.0" D X 2.5" H

i'm guessing a 50/55 - 100w light output....

btw...is 50w enough to even notice?

My fogs main purpose is to throw illumination to the side to see the edge of the road or to provide peripheral vision, if you will. They throw light to the side of the truck which is helpful when turning at lower speeds, and they do help in the fog. They are more or less "specialized" lighting which does not do a lot for your forward vision EXCEPT in fog.
