Question Fog Lights?

I want to get a set of bumper-mounted fog lights for my SE but don't know what to look for or what to get. Should I go with the OEM lights or is there something by Hella, KC, etc that you all recommend? Thanks!!

Sorry for cutting in, but if I can add on to that question....
Will the switches fit in the precut holes? Some switches look alot bigger then what is already there.

It all depends on what you want. If you want off-road only lighting, then you can get anything on the market and good aftermarket lights will easily put factory fogs to shame. However, if you want to drive with them on the street, you have to check your local regulations for what you can and can't do. Every area is different. Here, I can run aftermarket lights up to a certain power, other places you might not even be able to run factory fogs unless it's foggy. You just have to check.

As for the light switch, you can buy factory switches but they are expensive. To put aftermarket switches where the factory one's go might require careful switch selection as I'm sure not all switches are going to fit.

I'd probably just buy a factory switch off eBay cheap. As far as lights, I wouldn't want something that would light up the entire forest, but something that would still provide good illumination. I'm not going to bother worrying about local regs, I'm in the army and will be moving every few years and won't know the regs for where I'll be living next. I'll probably go with something for just off road, but like I said, it doesn't need to light up the night. Any recommendations?

In that case, just get what ever lights you prefer. All brands have good and bad points. (In General) KC's and some Hellas are a little cheaper while providing good light. PIAAs are usually more expensive and some people will argue their quality over others. HID's are the best but also cost a small fortune. (KC and Lightforce have some nice HID options though if you can afford it...)

If you just want good, effective lighting when you need it, I would probably just pick up some good ProComp lights in the size and power you want and wire them up yourself. They have great entry-level lights for a great price and some higher-end models as well.
