Default fog lights-what am i missing

I wrote this posting earlier, but don't see it now.
Just bought a 03 xlt 4.0L 2 dr xtd cab 4x4
I want to add fog lights. I am shopping and only see "round" styles. My bumper has an area to cut out that is like a tilted rectangle. Is this not made for fog lights?

No I dont believe it pops out to add foglights.

You truck is more then likely prewired half way for fogs.

On my 2003 XL I had the wires from bumper to dist box under the hood. I just had to add radio bezel with switch and wires from radio bezel to dist box and add the relays.

Looks something like this?

I can post a picture of a truck just like mine. It's dark now, so will have to get pics tomorrow.
I guess I have the value pkg
but I have alloy wheels, spray in liner, power windows, wired for a topper. I just really like the looks of fog lights.

It does look like your picture. They are definately not round. I haven't looked for the wiring yet.

Only reasson u also need the upper bumper. Refer to the picture below.

I am a fan of LMCtruck.com however they charge hefty shipping price for larger items.

Well, that's the best info I've seen yet! So, I can't use my existing bumper with a new valance? Is that stuff on ebay decent quality?
