Icon4 New fog lights???

I am in desperate need of a new set of fog lights. Mine are really cracked and not bright. I am wondering if anyone would know of a good set of foglights. They don't have to be original. If they are that would be great but dont have to be. They are for a 2001 ranger xlt.

You can get a replacement set on eBay, and then put Sylvania Silverstar 9005's in them. They are 55W instead of the original 35W bulbs. You can always put an auxiliary pair of higher wattage fog/spot lights behind the grille, or get a safari or bull bar and put lights on it.

[hijack] Will the stock wiring handle the 55w bulbs alright? Any issues with heat and/or melting of the lens or housing? Lastly, do these bulbs still throw a yellow-ish color out there or more of a pure white? [/end hijack]

Get a separate harness for the 55w Fogs and use the eisting wiring to activate a new relay.
