Need help finding fog light bracket.

My stock fog light mount broke off on my 2005 tj front bumper(square) so I bought some kc fog lights. The kit did not come with new mounting brackets but said to use the old existing ones. I can not since it is broken. I have looked on every site I can find and have had no luck finding fog light mounting brackets to go on my front bumper. Does anyone know where I can get a set? Or does anyone have some instructions on how I would go about makeing some.

Thanks Nordin

You should be able to insert the stud on the new lights through the existing holes in the bumper.

I was thinking that myself but the stud is round and the hole that the mounting bracket was is square. There are no round holes near it. I dont want to drill into the bumper and worse comes to worse I suppose I could drill a seperate piece of metal to go over the square hole but I'd prefer a mounting bracket. Which may be asking too much at this point.
4point I love your quote.

Just installed KC Daylighters in mine which came without fogs. The stud in the KC lights is much thicker than the hole. Just drill the bumper, there is nothing wrong with that. That's what I did and it fits perfectly.

So, you would need the mount that is on the bumper? I can check my stash later.

If anything, go to the stealership. It shouldn't cost that much.

I'm probablt just being anal about wanting brakets for mounting them. I'd prefer it if i could find them. I went to the dealership to buy a new bracket but they only sell them as part of the fog light itself. which is stupid. the light assembly would have cost 150.00 So for 154.00 I bought two kc lights with rockgaurds. Just no mounting bracket oops.

I made a set of robust light brackets out of aluminum in my machine shop for this excact application the customer had the same complaint that he would have to buy the whole light just because his bracket was broke. I was wondering if there maybe a few people interested in these brackets I can post some pictures later when I get home
