After market Fog lights

Okay so I want some fog lights that I can mount Behind my grill. I'm not wanting to spend a buttload of money. I saw a fellow member install some strobe light fogs that are for looks not actually adding visibility like I'm wanting.

Question is, has anyone done this with like autozone or Walmart type fogs? If so how and pics if available would help greatly!

Its a bad idea with stock grilled cause if you have actual sized foglights. It will almost cover up the holes to radiator and the little air that gets back will.be too hot. It would be better to get a billet grille and modify it

I wanna do this soon too. But make sure the fog lamps leave a good amount of room for air to circulate.

I honestly don't think it would matter that much affecting heat. I have yet to see someone over heat with just fogs block the grill... and we have a lot of airflow.

Anyone know the stock fog light size? It must be around a 4 or 4.5" by my best guess.

But the holes in stock grilles are tiny. I hate honeycomb grilles...-.-

And i know it doesn't matter that much. It just slightly warmer air.

Talk to the guy that is shooting for 40 mpg. I forgot his name but he claims we get a crap load of air in these things. Too much in fact

Ultrarc or something like that. He's doing a lot of aero mods, including a full body pan.

I'm sure he'll hit 40mpg with a bit of work. Mine, on a flat road cruising at 60mph this summer was hovering right around 35/36mpg.

With the full belly pan on I saved a LOT.

I took a 15 mile trip in the after noon to get blocks. Got low 30 mpg, sunny day with a cold start. Winter, but nice day. Drove back with 450 lbs of brick, like 26. Back the original way, 36 mpg. Home again with another 450 lbs, averaged me 31 mpg since my gauge didn't reset.

That day did my belly pan. Drove the exact same path, except seven hours later, night, cold, with a cold engine. 39.7 mpg with a whiney person, and the heat on. The difference it made was unbelievable. And yea, blocking some intake air is fine. The first time I went to Roush I sealed my front end for aero and I never broke 217 degrees coolant temperature, in summer, 74 mph for almost three hours.

I always forget to record environment temperatures, my apologies.

With the full belly pan, was there any issue of exhaust pipe heat radiating to the floor?

Roush is on it now. But I do have an extra black 2012 GT front end sitting in one of my sheds, though lol

Which fogs do you mean? In bumper or in grille?

Ohio, northern. It is only the bumper, no grille or extras. And that will work for me, I got it a while ago but then got the Roush setup instead.

these are cool but if you look at the GT fogs in the grille you can see that they totally fill the grille (top to bottom). You will want some that dont quite fill so much because the space behind the grille is cluttered with the hood latch and some sheet metal. you also need to be aware of the depth of the hidden fogs because you dont have all that much room behind the grille. your best bet is to either find an off road truck or jeep shop and look on there shelf so you can return if they dont fit. Another option is to look at truck stops, if you know truckers then you know they love to strap extra lights to there rig.... especially chrome ones lol

I paid 200 for the Roush front fascia w/fog lights in black with lower partial grille block and front splitter, including installation at Roush...don't expect that deal lol. Front fascia is 1100 ish, splitter is 200 ish, lower partial grille block was 150 ish.

I already had the stock GT fogs, they put it in with it for me.

I believe Roush charges 99/hour for labor. All of my work has been done by them. I love my car. I think it looks mean the icing on top is lower aero, so I use less fuel and make better use of my power. Win win. Going from v6 fascia to v8 drops CD by about 7%, let alone the Roush and other aero mods.
