The next step in my front end is to put smoked out fog lights in, the only problem is I have the small grills where the fog lights go
So I was wondering when I crawl under or take front bumper off, is this actually part of the front bumper or are they just inserts and are the screw holes still there on the sixxers to install fog lights

I just need to know if I need to cut the grills out which will most likely need bumper pulled off or not
Also the cobra sockets on AM have 2 wires coming out, is it possible to splice existing fog light power wire on my headlights and tie power in there then ground it somewhere

One last question is about hids, and Ik slosix atleast will be able to answer this
I've never done hids before, have smoked headlights, think I want to convert to hids, what kit and from where do I need

Awesome so how did you wire them into ur lighting system

I don't understand if ud put the bolt holes there why you would put grills of vise versa but I guess ford has done much more stupid things

Do you want HID for the fogs or headlights?

You could splice the running light wire and add in the fog wires on each side

Way better than OEM bulbs in the stock housing ill tell you that. I am really happy with the light output. Bad thing is no hi-beam. You'd have to pay extra for that, I think $10 more

If I could go back, I would get hi's. I'm sure the deer will get heart attacks once you turn up your lights

Wabbit season...

Bulb cornis confusing, but lower is yellower and higher is whiter. 6k gets you a nice blue 3k gets a good yellow and 10k gives yo bright white and there's all the in betweens. Nope, it's just plug and play. The stock harness connects to the ballasts and the ballasts connect to the HID's pretty easy

Duck season.... Haha bugs bunny man. Don't know anything about hunting though.
Yeah $70 maybe because of the hi-beams. I think you will. It's basic plug and play. Then you have to connect the ballast a different way because of reverse polarity or something like that. But you'll see when you get them

Personally, I'd recommend clear fogs over dark ones IF you're after better light output.
