07 Fog lights ?

I bought a 07 Ranger XLT new thru a dealer trade, I never asked what the appearance package was (all black plastic front with a non-painted rear bumper) so I upgraded the look with a chrome grill,painted the rear bumper and got the paintable upper bumpers for the front. I want to add fog lights to the lower part (black plastic) of the front bumper but I can't seem to find the right set up. I've tried two separate attempts to get light at a Ford dealer. The last purchase was a box with all I need to add them to my truck, but no such luck. The bracket that holds the lamps needs to be fasten to the lower bumper but bumper dose not have the two molded plastic bolts attached to it. Is there a different lower bumper with the parts molded into it that I need to swap out?
I would like to keep the factory look with the fog light kit I got thru my Ford dealer.

PS how do I add a picture of the bumper to help with the answer.
Thanks....

You may need to fab something up for them to work on your current valance or you can buy a XLT or Sport valance and it should have the brackets on them. As for loading pictures load them into photobucket.com and transfer them over.

John

Just got a notice from the Ranger forum , I forgot I was in it. Thanks for the reply to my question. (even if I didn't get back to you sooner) I went the route of ordering an 08 front lower clip for the round fog lamps. I wasn't able to get the OEM switch so I had to place it on the driver side of the small catch-all on top of the trans hump.

It came with the knock out plates in the lower plastic bumper but there was no place to anchor the light assembly to. I had a buddy of mine order the lower piece for an 08 and it had the round lights.

It took me a few trips to the parts department but I got the 08 look for my 07, wasn't able to tie the fog light switch in with the head light switch..

My 09 has the round fogs but from what i remember there isnt a bracket back there, but just some holes in the plastic valance that the studs on the back of the fog lamp stick through that you attach some speed nuts to.

FWIW, id have rather have the seperate fog light switch on the radio bezel than have it integrated with the headlamp switch. I've always preferred to have less of a load on any switch when possible.

Yeah, that was the reason I had to go with the 08's, the bottom of that 07 bumper had no place for the two headed stud to screw into.
I fitted the switch into the side of the catch all that sits over the trans hump
Good Lookin Cougar. I'm brining a 89 Mustang GT back to life...a little at a time.
