Fogs behind the grill

I have a 03 with the honey cone grill and just got done painting it so its time for some fogs to go behind it. Just want to know what brands and watts you run, I know some people say that its bad to put them there and others say they never have issues. I was thinkin some Hella 500's which are 55W anyone run more that that without issues?

Do they have the stock 55W bulbs and when you mounted them did you just bolt them to the inner grill support?

i made brackets out of 1/8" sheet mounting the lights between the header panel and grill. the lights are hanging, super easy to mount and wire and easy to adjust
