Default Fog Light's

So I want some fog lights to put on the front of my truck ( I have a light addiction ) What are some good fog lights to get? You think I should go with rounded ones or rectangular ones like the KC's on top to match all my other lights? Where should I put them? My valence doesn't have spots for them so .... Ideas??

You can try mounting them to the bumper or getting square ones and cut holes in the lower valance and put them there with some fabbed brackets

You could do that, I did hellas behind mine so you could try that. I wasnt sure if the grill would be too wide to not scatter the light on your truck

I've always believed that it's best to keep fog/driving lights the same brand. so, since you have Kc's on the roll bar, My suggestion is to get a pair (2 lights) of KC 5X7 series clear fog lights and mount them on top of your front bumper.
since you have a Gen II ranger, this style of light configuration will match up well with your trucks grille and headlight design.

check out amazon.com. I believe they have KC 5x7 series there in a number of styles. the best one is the "all season" kit which comes with 2 lights, wiring, switch, relay and 3 different lenses (Driving, clear fog, amber fog) so you can switch the lenses to suit your needs. price is about $120.

the $120 is the "top" price. they do have lower pricing too. also, remember, KC has a 23 year warranty which includes breakage due to accidents, water damage, wiring misshaps, people have even claimed that KC will replace burned out bulbs for free!
just check out amazon.com and see what they have

I don't know the size of your grill holes, but you could also consider plastic slim aux lights.

They are lighter than the regular metal ones, and you could insert a pair in your grill, make something original.

Just a suggestion

rectangle lights would work best. your local auto parts store should have some relativly cheap fog lights to suit your needs, like 30 bucks.
