Default 6" Fog Lights In Edge Bumper

Anyone ever do this? stock lights are 4.5". The outside hole is exactly 6" but it funnels down to 4.5".

My stock ones were leaking so I decided to try and reseal them. So when I was taking them off the was a "snap, krackle, and a sigh" lol well 2 mounts are broken one the drivers side of the bumper. so I was lookin around and saw the KC daylighters

Just for example ^

I figure if you cut the bumper alil bit you can make them fit. but will it look good???

that's a neat idea, maybe someone can photoshop it?

not sure if they make daylighters with a fog beam pattern, though. but some similar lights probably do come as such.

They make slims that are fog beam. But I think I weill need the regular b/c it may stick out the bumper alil b/c the bumper is curved. So the normal driving ones may be best.

Just an idea and since ur truck is "fancy" u may not wanna go this route but why not remake the original mounts via some kind of bonding agent and if u broke the lens then cut out auto grade lens from another truck or something and then glue those on...should look awesome and u can put in a bigger bulb and still get that 6 inch look ur tryingto get.....

not sure if this works at all w ur situation lol

The led's will be super bright when you look directly at them, but I doubt if any led will give much usable light over a distance as fogs. As indicators & brake lights they work great because people will generally be looking at the led's & they'll be very bright to the viewer, however from the driver's seat they may not look all that bright.

I tried some h3 led bulbs that were super bright if you look directly at them, but they didn't put out enough light for me to see by so I swapped in some 100w yellow h3's.
