Default Auxilary Lighting Arrangement Opinions

After getting my new wheels soon, Ill be working towards a fresh front end. Im trying to build a mild/ semi-capable - daily driver prerunner that looks super clean. I want my truck to look pretty close to this, except white, only 31" tires, 2.5" lift, fabricated skid plate behind stock bumper, and maybe power dome hood.

For lighting I want to run 2 - 4" or 7" 6000k Lights In the grille for sure http://www.activepowersports.com/pro...2d-Kragen.html, (head lights will have 6000k hid with highbeam- my good kits should b. here thursday)

I am trying to decide If i should run only 2 - 3" yellow fog lights in the radiator opening http://www.polyperformance.com/atv/E...s-p-21205.html. Leave real fog light openings open (like ford raptor "brake ducts")

OR

Only run some type of fog light fog light openings. leave radiator opening alone.

OR run lights in both! /not sure if this is over kill.

Im leaning towards just fogs in radiator opening.. but idk

What do you all think!

Why don't u do 2 7in in the grill and see if 2 of the 4in could fit in the bump for ur fogs and throw yellow covers on them considering only 2 of those 7s actually wouldn't be that bright coming from my experience with them. But that would be sweet with ur arrangement u got goin on

Actually, I think 2 7s will be pretty bright! I saw a toyota with two who took some pics on a dark road, they were impressive. They washed out his halogen highbeams. Plus, Ill be running 6k hid headlights- im getting the kit tomorrow (say UPS), so once installed ill post pics, its a high quality kit.

Well, in reality, the 2 7" HIDs and at least one set of fogs would hardly ever run, so I think my alt would be cool.

You could always start with 2 and add more we started with 3 and added the 2 4in lower, it was perfect for easy off roading just bright enough, but its your truck just lettin u know what I know! Man I'm jealous u got some fun spots out in vegas to off road get as many light as u can! Ahaaha
