Icon4 bumper and fog lights

im getting a custom bumper built for my 99 ford ranger with 7 inches of lift and 17 inch rims and 35 inch mud tires, when i bought it there were no fog lights but the wires/plugs are hanging down, should i try to incorperate them into my new bumper or not?

you can setup up the fogs useing the stock foglight wiring but you need to pull your radio bezel and see if the wiring is there for the switch. if not don't both and just wire it up yourself.

or you can cut the wires and splice them to the wires on the foglights.

i would put the proper grill on the truck. not piece of foreign material.

as for your original question about fogs. it's up to you. do you want fogs or not? the wiring is there, personally i'd go for it.

Incorporating the lights owuld be cool but if you're making a custom bumper i'd just swap the pigtails to 01-03 fogs because they're round not oval like the 98-00's.

that grille is hideous take it off
