Looks like you will just have to get creative. Personally I like the stock look over the aftermarket maybe you could do a bumper swap and make it look real good (if that's even possible) but if you just want to go after market I'm sure you will find others who have done similar to paintballer to give you ideas.

Edge, do you know if the bracket on your fogs can be flipped so that the light can be pushed forward? I'm thinking I can mount the ones you have on the square peice in the back of that socket.

I wouldn't get the ones like mine if you want to alter them like that. you can rotate the whole thing to mount the way you want but i wouldn't flip it inside out or anything like that. Just wouldn't be worth it. stick with aftermarket ones you will have more options.

However you want. Fog lights really are not that hard to install. Mounting them will probably be the hardest part for you. just find a spot in your truck you want the witch and run the wire thought the fire wall connect power and your good to go. Most average priced fogs come with the wiring kit and even switch but if you want to get fancy just go to the auto parts store and fins a nicer switch than what comes with the kit. Follow the directions from the kit.

Ok. I like it. I just might get those lights you sent me in the link too and throw HID 6000k lights in them too. I have a final question: how do you upload a picture as your profile picture?

As far as the pic. Go to User CP and all your profile info is there. Add a signature and Avatar.

and if you havnt doen so yet I would go to the introduction page and let everyone know you exist and what kind of truck you have.

Welcome to the forum! Im goin to bed.
