I say get the regular clear ones aka "Diamond Clears"

I've heard those projector sets have an odd beam pattern to them

for your fog lights. look down underneith on your frame by the bumper, you might find a connection just plugged into a holder on the frame. those are fog light wiring, my truck is all wired up for fogs already, just buy a radio bezel with the button and the fog/valance and its good to go

im not sure the size of the round holes of the valance. dont want to take a risk of not finding the right size or somethin so why i was considering just buying the set with the foglights on ebay for like 120 then shipping is 26

98-00 99 FORD RANGER XLT XL BUMPER VALANCE FOG LIGHT 3:eBay Motors (item 120472416856 end time Nov-20-09 20:20:46 PST)

and not sure where the wiring for the fog lights are. dont think my truck came with prewiring. so i may have to do myself with like a relay or something i dunno
