    I am thinking about picking up an older ARB bumper without the fog light provision, and mounting it on my TRD sport. Problem is, I have to lose my fog lights unless someone has come up with an aftermarket provision that I haven't yet seen. That doesn't bother me much because there isn't all that much fog around here. What kind of driving lights can be powered through my existing wiring? What's a good choice in that department? I am wanting them for driving mountain roads at night, hunting, and generally being able to light up the night. Thanks.

    Also, what's a good price to sell my stock bumper (silver) with fogs and not a scratch on it?

    I also have the ARB without the foglight recessions. I'm looking at mounting some aftermarket fogs, underneath my bumper. I'll be putting up pictures of the mounting location and what lights I pick up.

    Do you want fog lights or driving lights? If you're getting driving lights, mount them up high and get a driving light beam pattern, long range and concentrated. I've got PIAA 520's with the crystal ion lens and absolutely love them but there are plenty of options out there. If you want fogs, mount them low and get a lens with a fog pattern, short range and wide. There are also ATP lenses (all-terrain pattern) which are a mixture of the 2 beam patterns.

    On the ARB, is there a place to mount lights on the top of the bumper? As far as mounting them below the bumper, it kind of defeats the purpose of a high clearance bumper having lights hanging below to get beat up.
