there should be holes in the stock bumper for factory ones. the ones you want to buy seem to use the same set up, 1 bolt throughwith a nut on the bottom

Are you going to install a "Muti function switch"? That is the factory Jeep stock stem to the left of the steering wheel. It controls headlamps, fogs and turn signals. That way you do not have to use a toggle switch to operate your fogs.

There is also a square hole behind the mounting position that you can run the wire through, I did it on mine with my cheepie fog lights. Just a simple step for a cleaner install

Yes, run it this way. That way wires will not be in the way of anything. Less chance for rubbing and fraying.

Drilling

I put in Hella 500's using the predrilled holes. I had to drill them out a bit larger to fit the lights, but that was easy.
