Icon5 Stock Fog lights switched to led

okay well i just got a bumper done on my truck and wished i had my fog lights still for night driving but i was wondering instead of the fog lights could i switch them to a led type light and mouth them below my headlamps or below my main bar on my bumper (i already have 2 hella 4000's but they are illegal to use on streets only a offroad light) and point them down/out for a fog light and still use the stock fog light power?
how much power are those stock fog connections pushing out? how man watts or volts? or w/e it is

I have a pair, never installed them.

Everything in my truck is LED (excluding headlights/foglights)

You can look at the fuse size (amperage) of your stock fog lights. Just make sure your new lights down draw more current than that rating. With LEDs though, you should be fine. They are a lot more efficent and thus draw a lot less current than traditional bulbs.
