rear lights in stock bumper

I picked up a set of 55w fogs that Im gonna use as back up lights. I've been searching the forums and I was wondering if anyone has pics of rear fogs mounted into the rear bumper? I'm thinking of mounting mine this way and was wondering what it would look like.

You talking about cutting holes? That would look sweet if you did a good job!

yah thats what I'm thinking of doing. They are smaller squarish lights and i thought it would look cool to have them flush mounted about 4 to 6 inches in from the edge of the bumper. On one of the threads it said someone had done this already.

I dont like the ones on that site, ugly.
Someone posted a picture of this done in the stock bumper and it looked sick!
Maybe I can find it.

personally i dont mind the lmc ones, but with the stock bumper it would probly suit the truck better seeing as how it would be more of a stock look.

The lmc ones remind me of the old square paint bumpers on the rangers.

Small ones might look snazzier.

I've been tossing this idea for years!!! SOOO totally want to do it, but can't. lol. I'm thinking those 2"x6" KC 26series lamps in there. Nice bucket behind the bumper so you can have full adjustability...and it's higher up so time to blind a-hole tailgaiters. lol. Of course...i alreayd have those lamps but took out the 55w bulbs and put in 130w ice blue bulbs. very nice.

this was before the 5 inch drop



notice the right side doesnt line up properly on the roll pan, that is now fixed, the tailgate was interfering, so i had to mod the bottom of the tail gate for it to fit properly, and notice my old shlt bumper that i told you i cut off, just on the far right of the pic you can see a little of it

after 5 inch drop



notice the alignment of the roll pan now

I dont get why people put stickers advertising their stereo system on their truck. Its like a huge neon sign saying "steal my system!"

It would look good if it was painted, but those tail lights just kill the truck for me.
