Fog Light Installation, Brand, Type, What to Do?!

I see some of you have the lights in the middle, others on the far bottom edge, are the middle round lights meant for something other then fog lights?

My truck dosn't have foglights, so what do I do?

And how hard is the wiring??

Josh - If your userpic is your truck it looks mainly street. Would agree with Red, go with the driving lights. I am doing the same thing to my ranger over time, just starting to acquire the parts since I want mine to look more stock on the inside. There is a specific stereo bezel that has the lamp switch, yada, yada...

I am not that mechanical but I bought the KC's for my son's Ramcharger and the instructions were excellent. I am thinking it took me about an hour, and most of that time was spent fishing the wires from inside the engine compartment through the drivers door side and into the cab. The rest of it was a breeze.

Question to those that know on this board, where is the best place to feed the wires into the cab?

i'm a hella man (been since 1983) anyways, i chose lights that would compliment the truck and would also be effective. i hate seeing a truck with lights that look silly on it (a big f-250 with tiny 2'' round lights on the top bumper) or seeing a tiny mazda miata with huge hella 550's... waaay to big for this car!!

so whatever lights you choose, remember that they should look good day OR night!

My truck is mainly street, any 'off road' action it gets is sand and a few jaring bumps, nothing that needs big tires or a lift.

It's nice to be in FL, and to be able to go off road..

Of course riding around in Jacksonville, you'll find streets that if you wanted a safer/sturdier drive, you'd go off road.

I plan on getting some better photos, just gotta get my video editing software on the comp to get the audio I took of my squeek/belt issue.
