Default Fog Light in XL Bumper

hey guys, I got the XL package so I dont have the stock fog lights. It will probably be pretty expensive to get a whole new bumper that has them stock but I eventually want to one day. With that being said, has anyone put some fogs in the stock bumper that doesnt have them originally. I know you can buy the mounting brackets to go on top the bumper, or behind the grill, but im specifically wanting to see if they mounted some in the stock type location? thanks, zach.

I have an XL as well, and though I haven't added any fog lights yet, I have thought about it a little bit. I think you may be able to get it in the valence looking very factory. There are the holes for the fog lights, they are just filled in, but you can tell where the fog lights are supposed to be. You might be able to cut out those holes and mount the fogs in there.

Yeah. I actually have been closely looking at it and I think the bumper that comes with the fogs actually has that cross weave pateern set in more inside the bumper you know. Maybe its just my imagination but its almost as if you would have to get that bumper for it to look 100 percent right because the fog holes are deeper and set inside more if that makes sense?

ok man I took the bumper off for more room, and I just got done getting the covers off. alil tricky with a screwdriver but not to bad once I found the best way to pop them off. now how do I look and see if I have the prewiring for the fogs, my bumper is off so it should be easy to try and look. just need to know what they look like and where they will be, pics would be great for this. thanks, Zach.

Oh ps I cant believe FORD actually did this, they usually do things that on second thought are quit retarded, but this is something that was actually very smart especially for XL owner, f yeah lol, you dont know how bad I wanted the stock fogs. Oh and is 06 xl bumpers the only onces that have these inserts with proper openings behind, or does 04, 05, 07 and such have them?
