is it possible to link up the stock fogs onto some custom bumper?

so i go in tomorrow to figure out plans for and design a new custom bumper that i'm getting, and initially i wanted to run the stock fogs out of my valence on the bumper because they can just plug right in and still work and all that. upon taking the fogs OUT of the valence it appears that they have a weird plastic casing type thing on them that i can't get off without removing just the small bulb part. is there anyway to utilize the stock fogs as off road lights or do i have to get some kc's or something?

if i can use them, how could they mount up to the bumper?

thanks.

Anything is possible with enough time. I think you could easily mount them, offroad lights will provide more overall light

Man I love that bumper. It doesnt seem like itd be terribly hard. You might be able to drill into the plastic case and use a screw to mount the light in whatever you want.

x2 No on OEM Fogs on the Bumper!
Just go out and buy some lights, in the long run it will look better.
You can use the OEM wiring that goes to the Fogs to control the new lights by just running the wire that went to the OEM Lights and attach it to pin 85 or the sw wire on the new relay.

As stated and I repeat, if they were going in the bumper then OEM Lights would be good but ON it no way unless you can get creative and make some sort of enclosure but that is a lot of work and would cost more than some Wally World or Auto Store Lights. Buy some inexpensive light, wiring them up with good wiring and relay and when you get more money go for some KCs Slim Lights.
luck,
