4 inch fog lights question

I bought a new plate bumper, and need new 4 inch fogs for it. Before anyone jumps up and says PIAA 510's hear me out for a second. I was looking to get a cheaper fog light housing, and mod it to fit a normal size ballast hid kit that I have lying around the house. Any suggestions? thanks.

Stock fogs with the HID kit.
A couple other options I found searching on google but I don't know about the fitment. PIAA's are good lights, I'd seriously consider them:

If you're going to swap in a HID kit, you might want to wander around a local auto parts store and see if they have something cheap that fits. Or check something like tractor supply co.

local auto parts store doesn't have what I need, will check TSC, I was hoping to keep the $$$ to a minimum, considering I already have an HID fog light set to hook up, I would like to find some four inch fogs to swap out.

canada i found the 510 atp kit at truckcustomizers for 170 after shipping that was 100 dollars less. I really wanted HID's too but I could not find a complete kit so I just went with it and if I dont like it will just put in HID's

Those look really good. I like how they match your truck.

Yea I want to see how they look. I'm going to be getting an Elite bumper too, and want to figure out my options. Maybe just have Tim build it with larger holes to fit the stock fogs?
Theres definitely no way to make the stock fogs fit?

One of these days, hopefully this week I will take pics. When I talked to Tim he told me that the stocks wouldn't fit. I did try and redneck something, but it wouldn't work, just fyi. I ended up buying a set of four inch fogs from pep boys, and put my hids in them. They serve the purpose, but the jury's still out on them, imo.
