2012 fog light relocation bracket

Hey does anyone know of a bracket that would allow me to relocate the factory fog lights to the top of my new Smittybilt SRC bumper? I realize the way the factory fogs attach is from the rear while the mount on the SRC is from top down. IS there a braket that could relocate them or do I need to buy a new set of fogs and splice the wires?

I don't know about relocating the stock fogs...there's not any kind of real housing for them, iirc. Maybe there's an easy way to do it.

In the meantime, here are some links (threads, vendors) on various aftermarket options that will come with mounting options. As for splicing lights into the existing fog light wiring, you'll want 12v/55w lights, similar to the stockers, which will allow you to use the existing light controls in your Jeep.

For lights that you can't splice, you'll have to hook em up individually and use a separate switch in the Jeep. Make sure that if you want fogs, you get fogs and not driving lights.

JK stock fog lights / aftermarket?

Some info on the Hella Micro DE fog lights:

Hella Micro DE Fog and Xenon HID Driving Lamps

Here's a link to the WARN wireless lights that a few people have bought recently:

WARN 82410 - WARN 3.5" Wireless Fog Lamp Kit - Quadratec

I just bought a set of these (except I bought driving lights, not fogs...these are fogs) Also, be aware that these are NOT legal for on-road use:

LED Fog Lights | Off Road LED Lights | Rigid LED Lights

I am looking to do the same thing. I have an aftermarket bumper with no spots for a direct fit for the factory fogs.
I am sure someone has a solution to fab a relocation kit for them.
