I have a K&N CAI in my truck so i mounted one ballast where the airbox would bolt to. I then mounted the other one behind the battery on the apron. I have to move that one up a bit because its TIGHT there. slim ballasts would have been better, but its a minor adjustment to get some space.

Thanks for linking my how-to. In there you'll see where i mounted my headlight ballasts and my fog ballasts.

I've had the fog ballasts mounted there since April 08...they've been though rain, sleet, snow, ice and still function as brand spankin' new.
