I had oem foglights on my 03 back in the day, loved them. Hid them behind the ducts, and was great additional lighting for winter time driving. Add those in with the Headlight mod, and theres plenty of lighting

I've got a pair of OEM fogs and switch ready to install but haven't taken time to make the brackets.  There are several threads on here regarding exactly that but of course thanks to greedy ass photobucket the pics are gone...

I originally had projector fog lights from winjet installed in the ducts. Had HIDs in them. They were the yellow tint to the lens. Wanted something for bad weather. Made brackets, bought factory switch, ran wire to fuse box. All worked good, but the lens are junk. Barely had any light output. So I eventually tossed the lights and brackets, since everything rusted up. Left the HID kit and switch in. I liked the look of the TBSS fog lights so decided to make my own. Purchased a cheap set of projector fog lights that used the same builb size as my HID. $20. Bought some aluminum from Home Depot. Found the spot I liked in the lower grill to install them. After a couple of tries of fitment. I removed lower grill, I then removed the tow hooks, that was like 10 lbs. and had to make custom brackets. Made sure to paint everything. And yes I put the lower grill under the knife. But after finished. Light output is great, and to me looks factory installed. Note pics do not reflect the lights on. Its the flash.

Sorry no part #. I went on Amazon and looked for a projector light that was small and would fit a h3 hid bulb. Since I already have a h3 hid kit from diode dynamics. The seller I used is Anzio, 1 Pair Front Projector Glass Lens Bumper Fog Light Lamp w/ 55W 2400LM H3 Halogen Bulb + Mounting Bracket Kit. Was 21.99 but I think its 21.44 and free shipping currently. Took awhile to get and not the best packaging. Again these r cheap and I did modify the plastic backing on the light to seal better and cut a bit to fit the hid bulb better with a dremel. Once I got the brackets set and position for the lights. I bought some rustoleum gray hammered paint. I put a bunch of light coats. Note there is a bunch of sellers on amazon with these cheap lights. I figure if they break I can easily replace and cheap.

Can also do a amazon search of h3 projector fog lights.
They do get hot.
