Flush Mounted Fog Lights for Rancho Bumper

I have a Rancho Bumper on my Jeep. I included a picture for reference. Along the front bumper there are two holes (there are also two on the side). I want to put fog lights / bright lights in these holes. The holes are 2.5 inches wide - nothing behind them - bumper is about 1/4 inch thick steel. Not really wanting to weld anything in place.

Need your ideas and comments.

I noticed this light - seems REALLY cool, but it is not big enough:

Product Details

I like the idea of having a light that you put in the front and tighten up the back with a bezel type of configuration.

My stock fog lights are too big, but the wiring is available. It is my intent to splice the stock wiring for the fog lights.

That's a rather small opening for most driving light diameters....

I have a set of Hella Optilux 2500's, they are bright, but they need a 4" hole. Most of the lights that I've seen are similar in diameter.

Is there a mounting place behind the bumper?

One thing that I know for sure....the stock headlights aren't enough....lol

Nothing behind the bumper. I figured there was something out there that was useable.

Delta has a light bar for the back - about a foot long and three inches wide. I figured there were some small lights that would work. Based on the lack of comments - not too much out there!!!

I was trying to figure out were to mount mine once I get my new stubby bumper. I seen someone who had theirs mounted on what looked like the edge of the bumper in front of the winch. It turns out they make a two light bracket that mounts between the bumper and the roller fairlead.

Example of a ROC DOG Fab Off Road Fairlead Light Bracket

That looks good, but puts the lights out there in harms way...IMO

You might be able to rig these bad boys in there. You'd need to also rig a harness/relay to power them since they'd draw more power than OE. But they have a great foglight spread and are very good lights.
Rallylights could make the harness for you, of course.

Thanks for the comments, I would like something flush mount 1 for protection and 2 for more of a steamline look.

I was looking at the delta light bar, they do have a cool one for the front that has rock lights on the side, fog lights, driving lights, front camera, and front parking sensors. I'm thinking I may bite the bullet and go for that.

Combo-Scout Ground Light Bar by Delta and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1

However, to do that, the I may have to lock pic the my gig radio, which is another $200. I would like to just by the lights in the delta bar - they look like they will be a good fit for my bumper.
