    Wow, someone revived this thread.

    To the OP, looks great! How'd you get the switches installed next to the fog light switch? I was messing around last week installing some lights, and wanted the switch there, but it seemed like I'd have to take half the dash apart.

    Well I made up a bracket shown in the picture below. It looks complicated but was quite easy Took me about an hour. But it got the lights right where I want them. Didn't have to move the horns.

    Somebody else said I should black out my skid plate but I think it would disappear and I like the look of it.

    You could just run longer bolts for the fogs. I'll try to take some pictures and post it here.

    Camper top with racks, Custom fogs behind lower bumper. Interior LED lighting, Rock Lights, Hella 500s with upraged bulbs behind black billet grill, AAL, Front 5100s
    I am planning on modding and installing HID Hella 500s as described here, and since I don't have fogs and that is on my list too was thinking of dropping them in as well. Would that work? I am only raising the fogs up 6 or so inches from the stock wells, and it is way cheaper to hide ugly universal fogs behind the grill than buy something that will fit.

    Is the functionality of fogs dependent on location, or the direction they are aimed?
