Seriously?

OK.

Well driving lights have long pencil beams that are intended to illuminate the road area far ahead of you and only the area immediately ahead of you.

Fog lights have a more diffused beam that is wide and short, illuminating a wide swath of road immediately in front of your vehicle but not extending very far down the roadway. Often this light type features colored lenses of yellow or amber that are supposed to shine better through fog.

More info: http://trucktoys4less.com/lighting-types.html

Your best bet in my opinion is to pick up a used pair from someone. The factory driving lights are pretty solid and are the only ones I know of that will fit in the bumper without additional modification.

Which PIAA's did you install in the stock holes? The dealer installed Westin's in mine and did a terrible job. It goes back in tomorrow to get fitted properly or removed.
