adding fog lights

My jeep (02) didn't come with fog lights, and i want to add them. I would really like to use stock housing, so that there is a good fit in the opening. How do stock fog lights mount to the bumper? Is there a wiring harness that i can tap into somewhere or should i just make my own and put a manual switch inside the jeep?

Anyone have any suggestions/comments/thoughts?

I am open to some ideas and am just lost right now and thanks for the help.
-Kevin

my 99 has the wiring in the harness, but didnt come with them stock.
they sell mopar kits that are the light, the relay, and the new control stalk, and you just install them.

Of course, you'd have to cut away the plastic in the bumper as well.

On that thought, Hella FF300's are a pretty good fit in the hole, and are 100 times better then stock.

I like that idea. I had looked into mopar ones, but they are way too much money and work for what I get out of those lights.

I am trying to make up my mind wether to go with the driving style or fog style. Do you know if the driving style will actualy out perform the low beam head lights.

Thanks,
Kevin

depends on the brand and quality.

If you get the driving beam versions of the ones i have, then yeah, they outshine the lows.

I have fog pattern, to fill in under where the low beams are

Yes, you change the stalk to the correct one, add the relay in the PDC, and you should be good.
