Help on new foglight setup

So I bought a new bumper and it doesn't have holes for factory fogs. Are there any off road lights that will plug into the stock fogs but mount like a normal off road light?

I don't know of any lights that plug into the factory pig tail. However, if you would like the lights to come on using the factory fog light switch it is not difficult to eliminate the supplied aftermarket light switch and tap into the fog light hot wire for power.

that is what I am going to do to mine next week... don't know if I will just cut off the pigtail and go with spade connectors or leave it and use scotchloks ... going LED so very little current required..

I just cut off the factory pigtail from the old lights and wired into the harness. Am sporting a pair of Rigid D2s with no issues.

mine went in fine but had an annoying phantom flicker even for a few minutes after removing the key
cured that issue by wiring a capacitor in parallel with the light
after thinking about it I'm surprised canbus hasn't insisted on a diode to go but so far so good
