    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    I think that you could swap out the bulbs? The fousings are they are 4 3/4", give or take 1/16" and there are many factory fit kits fro mKC OBX and others that will fit.

    Usually if you just want fog lights I'd just stick to the factory setup as it it pretty decent, however if you want to swap out for a more powerful beam then do it!

    As for me I upgraded to an ARB front bumper and mounted some 35w HID KC (100watt equivalent) pencil beams on it. I am happy as punch with that setup..

    Yeah I would like to add some light but I dont want to melt the housings with higher wattage bulbs. Just curious what other had done.

    Get 35W HID's. They will be much brighter, and run slightly cooler than the stock halogen bulbs.

    I had PIAA 510's in the stock bumper for a while. The fog light pattern did not project well because of how the bumper is designed. The ATP or Driving light beam pattern would work much better.
