I know KC makes a direct replacement fog light with factory plug-ins, little more expensive, but im assuming higher quality than stock. otherwise, normal 4wd sites:

quadratec
JC whitney
4 wheel parts

those are my go to's

Any fog or driving light with 55w bulb will be direct plug and play. Might be a good time to upgrade to something a little better if you're going to replace one anyway. I have Hella 500 driving lights with stock wiring and they are much better than the OEM lights.

Most kits come with wiring yes, but not all come with direct plug and play. The KC's in particular have the actual plug that snaps into the stock wiring plug right by the fogs.
Most other kits just come with the wiring and relay and you have to install it yourself

Check ebay. When I was looking for a set, there are a couple of auctions for single OEM fog lights... pretty cheap too. But I agree, if you have the money, now's a good time to upgrade. Just stay away from trail furniture.

Plenty on Ebay . I think just 05&6 are different to look at but probably connect just the same . The seller may not know that their is a difference either.

That sounds like a "here, hold my beer and watch this" story.

I didn't mean actually plug into the harness, the phrase plug and play wasn't the best phrase to use for what I meant. My Hella 500s came with wiring but I just spliced the wires into the existing fog light wiring, bolted them into the bumper where the stock fog lights were, and they work great. So "plug and play" with some real easy wiring too.

Look in the Quadratec web site, KC has a direct replacement set they even come with stone guards. I put a set on about 3 yrs ago and they are fine, they're a direct plug in to your harness.
I'll be upgrading this summer though, I want something a little brighter.

Always see a bunch on craigslist. People upgrade and just have them sitting around and they can generally be had for cheap.

Dang, wish this was posted earlier in the week. I just threw mine in the trash. Got KC lights for Christmas, and finally installed them last weekend. Old ones went out on Monday. I would have gladly sent them to you.

Keep looking, maybe someone has one they can get to you.

Ha Ha thanks for the input guys, guess I'm gonna cave and get me some KC lights. I might try to find something creative to do with the "surviving" foglight, well as long as no couch is involved. Might mount it in the rear for night time offroading.
