Mine are just cheap rubber housing 55w flood lights mounted to the frame horns.

Only problem is that I hit stuff(trees,rocks,ect.) with them all the time. It looks like your bumper mounts to the factory mounts though? Thats where mine are bolted.

best bang for your buck, IMO, is the IPF 968 series fog lights... i have used their driving lights, they have a unique beam on them, which serves as a flood light AND spot, at the same time... i used to have their driving lights, and i will be purchasing another set soon, for my ranger

here is a shot of their fogs

Ty....

Get yourself a set of KC 26 series lights. The most common way to get 'em is in their back-up light kit. They're 2x6" housings, 55w bulbs, and flood beam pattern. Unfortunately, I don't think you've got the room for stock fogs anywhere protected on that thing. And I really doubt there's the room with the 26 series lights for HID's in 'em either.

Ty, i cant tell because im not looking at the front of the truck straight, but if the license plate is centered under the two middle lights up top, maybe getting two smaller lights, flipping them upside down and mounting them below the other lights so as you have one on each side of the plate? just a thought.

i thought that was what the plan was... like what almost everyone else was suggesting it... if not, i agree with you, chris
