i'm only guessing as it's too cold to go measure but i'm gonna say either 5 or 6"s.

Are you trying to go aftermarket? Otherwise id say just get the oem ones..don't know the size other than they'll be the right size.

You have the lower valence with the knock-outs. I would just remove the black plastic circles and put OEM fog lights in. Your truck might be pre-wired for fog lights.

The OEM fogs are closer to 4" or 4.5" I'd say.. I know my 5" Hellas are huge compared to the stockers.

that's what i was going to do but i cant find any wiring up under there and i don't have the "fog" option on my light control inside. So thats when i figured it would cost the same to put oem ones in there as it would to fab up mounts to stick piaas or any other sort of offroad brand fogs.

I'm not sure on the size. That was my best guess from memory. I don't have my OEM fogs around anymore. Sounds like you're just gonna have to pop out those round pieces and measure for the fogs. Then go to a parts store or get online and pick up what you think fits and looks best. Mounting them may be the hardest part..

My 07 I fitted with the 08 set up for the fog lights. The lower fascia of my 07 didn't have any molding on it to fit the round fog lights to ( it had the square egg crate knock outs when I bought it) . The 08 lower fascia had the round fog lights and snapped into the upper fascia perfectly. I ordered it all at the dealer.

I would recommend getting fact. fog brackets...those fabbed brackets you will get alot of wiggle and jiggle out of goin down the road. and if im not mistaken i believe those fogs are a 5" fog.
