9005 in fog lights?

I was reading on FTE that you can put a 9005 (i think) headlight bulb in the fogs to make them alot brighter. Anyone know if this is true? Will the connectors match up or do they gotta be changed? And how bout the wires.. heavy enough gauge to handle the higher wattage?

What about the wire harness tho? I was reading a bunch of guys said to handle the higher wattage bulbs the harness needs to be replaced with a heavier gauge wire?

by the time you buy the bulbs and do the wire harness your already pretty deep into it money wise... why not just save up and do a better investment like a full HID setup?

No need for a harness and you can get bulbs that are 70% as bright as hids for less than $70.
Stock housing isn't designed for Hids..
