Fog Lights amps/watts maximum.

I would really appreciate some assistance from you experts out there! I am looking to ‘add’ back on the front bumper the missing fog lights. There is an on/off switch in the cab.
Here is my dilemma – what are the max watts / amps that I can use? I have found an Optronics (OPTRONICS, INC.),
MH100W with 7.7 amps (http://www.etrailer.com/p-MH100W.html) that I like. But without knowing the max amps so as not to blow a fuse I need some expert advice. I could not find where the fuse rating in located for the fog lights in my manual. Any suggestions?
Many thanks!!
PS: any aftermaket sites to recommend for repalcement soft top, lights, etc?

So, your 2 lights are pulling 15.4 amps. Most light kits have 30amp relays with 20 amp in-line fuses. I'm no expert, but if that's the case, I would think you would be ok. However, if you plan on using the factory wiring/relay/fuse etc....I'm not sure what that set up is rated for. Pretty sure the factory fog lights have less wattage.

Sorry, I'm not really much help.

Someone with actual knowledge will be along shortly to help you out

Many thanks for your input! I think original factory lights were 55w (H3 blubs) each,
