New Bumper utilizing the stock fog lights

I want to replace my factory bumper on my 2014 Wrangler. Some of the new custom bumpers come with lights. I'm wonder if I can use my existing stock fog light wiring and just splice them into the new lights?

It would depend on the draw of the new lights. If they draw less or the same power as the factory lights you should be ok. If they draw more you'd have to beef up the wiring. Let me know if you have other questions!

I bought the Barricade Trailforce bumper and installed my OE fogs into it. Did not have to splice the wires, just remove the fog light wires from the loom to get some extra length.

I finally gave up after looking at thousand bumpers. I decided to go with my existing factory bumper and fog lights and bought a winch adapter for the same bumper, added a Quadratec winch. I could not find a bumper that suited me.
