I'm planning on installing my factory fog lights into the Mopar bumper. Like this guy here did (but I'm not adding the ones to the top of the bumper):



Here is how they are mounted behind the bumper:






I'm also thinking of getting another set of these lights and mounting them in the rear bumper as backup lights.

Are the little bumperette things that are in front of the tow hooks hollow? What I am getting at, is there enough room for someone to cut a 4" hole and mount some shallow 4" fog lights in them? If so, then that would be easier than cutting pvc at 45 degree angle and trying to get a secure mount with that.

The crush cans are behind the bumperette things.

I am thinking about mounting the lights without the PVC pipe. One could just double nuts the lights into the proper position. But I'm not sure how it will look. I'll post some pictures when I get around to mounting mine.

It will be a few weeks...

I broke my wrist on Labor Day weekend and I'm still doing physical therapy... No fabrication work for me yet.

Am I the only one who think the factory fog lights are ugly as sin?

I actually like the factory fog lights. I think the Mopar fog lights they are selling to go with the bumper don't look right. I also dislike the way it looks when large round fog lights are mounted on the very tips of the bumper in the mounting hole mopar provided. I want to mount a pair of 4" fog light under the hoop of a mopar bumper, but there isn't room with a winch installed.

The Mopar bumper uses the factory tow hooks. Nothing new needed.

I don't know about your Friends and Family Discount. But I believe you can get the bumpers cheaper than that. I purchased mine from my local dealer for cost plus 10%. This is about the price you will find from the "online" dealers. The front bumper was about $480 and the rear was $454.
Is that the electronic front sway bar disconnect skid on there too? I saw it on the Mopar website, but I only saw it in red. Is that one or am I way off? I was wanting to get one but hoping it came in black.

Yes, that is the front skid and the Mopar tow bar brackets. It comes in black. It is only shown in red in the picture. Here is a side shot:
