Rear Fog Light

Anyone here ever think about installing rear fog light? I'm looking at this one

http://truckperformance.com/products...ear+Fog+Lamps/

How hard would it be to install it?

For the electrical genious, but not for me. I can do calculus, set up home theater, put together computer, change brakes, struts,....but when it comes to automotive electrical, I'm an idiot.

how hard would it be to drill two holes in the bumper and put them there that way they are better protected?

i think a few people in here are confused about the purpose of rear fog lamps. they are not so you can see behind you. they are so that others can see you in the fog. KC lights in the back would cause an accident in the fog or a storm. ive been considering rear fog lights for some time now, but im trying to find a set that will look clean with the rest of my truck. i could have used them at the GA meet!!

Bingo!! This is the exact reason I want one. I remember many nights that I wish I can see the guy in front of me better during a foggy night. I wanna make sure that those idiots can see me when there is thick fog out there, I do live in WI after all. The europeans do know a thing or two. I'm surprise that a rear fog light is not a standard equipment on domestic vehicle by now.

topper, if they dont come with a wiring harness, you can pick one up at autozone or get the hella wiring harness. then its all just plug and play, follow the directions
