Quality/Affordable Aftermarket Bumper Fogs?

i am thinking about replacing the rectangular lower bumper recessed fogs on my 5.9. just looking for recommendations for something plug and play thats affordable yet quality. i would love to get some PIAA's but just cant afford them right now.

im not big into offroading, so their main purpose would be to enhance driving visibility in inclement weather.

nothing except factory fog lights will be "plug and play". anything aftermarket is going to require somewhat different mounting and wiring.

understood i guess i misspoke. i meant more along the lines of now having the modify the bumper etc. wiring and mounting outside of OEM is not much of a concern for me. just looking for good quality affordable replacements/upgrades.

The $10.99 set of fogs from Harbor Freight are actually very decent lights. PIAA no, but you won't be disappointed.....especially at $10.99.

just to clarify, do you guys have them mounted ON your bumper in front of your grille? mine would be going on a 5.9Limited, obviously with fogs recessed into the lower bumper. just trying to make sure they'll fit.
