Default Fog Lights

So I have an '01 Ranger XLT but I want to add fog lights to it. It has the wiring built into it already but the place where you put the fog light into the bumper is rectangular and I'm looking to put the lights inside of that socket. Are there any rectangular fog lights made for those slots?

Also, how would I go about installing some kind of switch inside the cab to activate the fog lights? I currently don't have one.

If its the factory bumper w/ the fog light cut outs just go on ebay and find a set of factory fog lights to throw in there.

I thought 01's had the round fogs??

All I can find everywhere on the internet is round fog lights. I saw a rectangular set for an F150. Would those fit?

The fogs on an edge and 4x4 are round. The xlt Never came with fogs.... I honestly just put in some fogs that are egg shapped and they fit pretty good ill see if i can find some pictures of them

but why would he have the wires for fogs? Unless the wires you are referring to are something aftermarket that someone had in there before you?

Does your truck look like this

I bought a kit and went from there, All my wiring and everything was aftermarket. But it really wasn't that hard, like 4 wires and a relay was it, the kit had a push button switch and all for like 60 bucks it wasn't too bad... I actually had to just cut out the holes for them to recess into my bumper, but everything will be aftermarket for him

The 01-03 bumpers on the XLT were different and never got fogs

Default Re: Fog Lights

I am wondering if the style fog lights that are on my truck might fit in there if you rig it up?

Edge, my truck is almost exactly like that. The entire front end is the same. I have it in white with the step side.

It would not be a tight fit, almost anything would work with enough rigging (not to be a smartass) but Its not exactly a rectangular slot on the 01-03 XLT Bumpers, Its square but it tapers to flush on one end, and on the other it is rounded (im looking for pictures on my computer because its raining outside >

Default Re: Fog Lights

Paintballer prob knows more than i do he has the same truck. looks like there is no factory fog for you. I would just start looking around for a good aftermarket that will fit in there and wire it up to a switch inside the cab. Are you sure the wires you think you have for fogs are actually fog wires and they are factory??

My truck had what looked like a connector for a fog light button on the inside of my radio bezel. But i followed it to the fuse box under the hood and it just dead ended up there, so maybe those are the wires you are talking about?

I looked underneath and found the same plug on both sides which leads to the fog light slots, but never followed the wires up. I'm assuming theyre for fog lights.
