fog/driving light replacements?

Hey guys, Im thinkin about buying an 03 TJ, but the stock aux light housings are rusted (all the ones ive seen were plastic but these are metal). Can I get pretty much any driving lights and have a direct replacement? Or will i have to run new wiring ans replace the mounts as well? What lights would you guys recommend? I know I would go for Silverstars for the main headlights, but i dont know about the others..

Also, while on the subject of lights, where is the switch for the factory fogs? i didnt have time to test the lights when i drove it, because the place i stopped to check everything out had no trespassing signs, and i got yelled at and thought i was gonna be shot.. i didnt see the signs because they were way up high in a tree, and there wasnt anything blocking the driveway, so i figured it was ok...

i managed to take a couple of pics though

You can buy replacements from the factory if they are indeed stock $$$$ or you can just connect a new set to the existing wiring if you don't increase the wattage. I have a set of Hella 500 fog lights on the bumper which work great for me. THe switch (if it's in the same place as it would be on my '01) is right next to the ashtray.

Your profile doesn't say where your from. Do you live where there is a lot of fog? I found that fog lights acutally aren't all that good. So I went with Hella 500 FF's Two are straight and two go out 10 degrees. I get a very nice sweep of light...well down the road and too each side.

And yes two are switched to the OEM fog switch and the other two are switched to the high beams.
