new fog lights?

i smashed one of my fog lights on the last wheeling trip im wondering what people have used for aftermarket?

i wouldnt mind a rediculously bright driving light as a replacement since i do alot of driving to and from the ski hill at night.

has to fit in the stock location and id like it to be rectangular and id like to just wire into the existing wiring. any ideas?

or any aftermarket round style like Hella or KC can be wired w/ existing wires. that's how mine are.

ya theres tons of aftermarket round ones out there but its a little harder finding a 5.5"ish by 2.75"ish rectangular one that would fit nicely in the stock location in the bumper.

also id like to avoid china brands as i could easily just pick up another stock one from the wrecker for a couple bucks that would put out similar light..

well i personally like the euro style...and china does seem to have a monopoly on those. lol
but the euro style would allow more light to pass through the glass (plastic).

were you thinking about hid's? that would definitely produce more light as long as you dont get too hot of a bulb.
