Replacing zj fog lights

Okay so I am getting things together to start my "mild" build, got some 31" BFG's on cragar d windows, 2.25" coil spacers. I've got a question for any of y'all that might have done this, I want to swap my stock fog lights for offroad lights. One of em is busted and I figured I'd upgrade, have any if y'all done this? Is it hard? Looking at some hella 500's or maybe some cheap pro comps

95 wouldn't have the fogs below the bumper correct?

Lots of guys have installed Hella's above the bumpers, you may even be able to get the OEM brackets to work?

I made simple brackets for my 98 to mount a set of 500's.

There's a thread from me about 5 years ago. I put a set of Hella 500FF's in the stock location (above the bumper). To all the other responders, remember the OP has a 95. Which has the fog lights mounted on the flat top of the bumper (in front of the grill).

If you take the grill off you can see the bracket mount bolts, which means you can then get to the nuts that hold the original lights on the brackets. From there you'll see how to mount the Hella's (or whatever you choose to put on there). The wiring is even pretty self explanatory.

[EDIT] Here's the thread. All my pictures were on my hosting which went belly up, so no piccy's. But I think I explained it pretty well at least.
