Has anyone installed a new bumper and reused the stock fog lights?

I installed a Body Armor front bumper on 2010 JK. I was fiddling around with the old bumper and ended up taking it completely apart.

I mean, the stock ones aren't very good, but they still work and would just plug right back into the stock wiring harness.

Has anyone found a way to reuse them without it looking completely ridiculous?

Just wondering as it seems a little silly to just throw them away with the rest of the bumper.

I use my OEM foglights with 3000K (yellow) HIDs in them with my rampage bumper.

How did you mount them? Does your bumper have precut holes for lights, like it mounts inside kind of like the stock bumper?

On my bumper any new lighting would need to sit on top. Thus the old stock lights requiring some sort of cover.

I put the OEM fogs in my or-fab. Works fine and there are holes for them.

Rampage bumpers have pre-cut holes for them. There are tabs/mounts inside the bumper for fog light housings. Here is mine when I installed it a few months ago:

Reused my stock fog lights when I put a LOD bumper on. I did replace the stock bulbs with 3500K halogen bulbs before I put the winch on.

X2. Love my or-fab full width. The stock lights just fit right in. The only issue is the aiming screws. I can't access them with a screwdriver. I might drill a couple holes for the adjustment.

Sorry such a long response, but just now saw this...
Thanks. I wanted something a little different and to match my PS Rocker Knockers with painted inserts. Harder to touch up, but meh!

I used my fog lights in the Olympic rock bumper. The bumper had holes for the fog lights. Worked great.

Hey, for most if not all they all have cut outs for the stock fog lights, Im wanting to get a Smittybuilt SRC Bumper which does not have the cut out for the stock OEM Foglights and I don't want to get the 2nd Gen. I have been looking,to no avail, to discover how to mount the fog lights, is there a way i can buy housing for it? I don't want to buy new ones because the ones I have now work fine. any suggests please let me know!

That might be a complicated task. You may be able to use a hole saw and create something in the High Clearance version but I think with a Prerunner you're out of luck. In either case, you will likely be time and money ahead just to go with aftermarket lights.
