aftermarket fogs on an 06

looking to put some aftermarket fogs on my 2006, i have some LED driving lights on there now, but they don't throw much light, and out where i live the more light you have, the better... i already have 6000K HID's in the headlights, but looking for a little more... anyway to solidly mount fog lights in the bumper opening? all i have seen in there is all plastic, and i would like to have it mounted solid so they don't vibrate... and what wiould work best that would give me good visability? i have looked at some PIAA hyper white lights, and they throw off alot of light, and very compact... but they are a little on the pricy side. i have looked onm fleabay for projector fog lights that i could convert over to HID


here is what i have in there now

I want some of those in amber, I say mount some big round ones in the gaps between the license plate, and possibly do like the raptor and just cut out the fog light holes

Check out a company called lightforce. Awesome lights but pricey.

Earlier rangers had holes in the bumper for light tabs. The holes are gone but you could drill/tap some in there and then use light tabs. Search for "light tabs" if you don't already know what I mean.

Not really cheap but I like the KC Slimline Lights; they come in three different light patterns are 6" OD and are only approx 2"s from front to back and mount with one bolt.
Being slimmer than other aux lights they can be mounted up close to the bumper/vehicle.
