Fog / Driving Lights...

Hello fellow Power Strokers!!

I have a 2001 Excursion and just had a minor Oopsee which caused minor damage to the front bumper. Picked up a header panel, 2005 Eagle Eye headlamps, new HID bulbs and new OEM grill. Its all at the body shop getting installed. With my stock bumper I replaced the factory fogs with Sylvania X1010 driving lights in the same location and looked pretty good too. It required removing the stock brackets all together. The X1010's have a U bracket to top or bottom mount. With HID headlights and HID driving lights I had tons of light. Well heres my issue.... got a call from the body shop today telling me the Syvania brackets wont mount to the 2005 bumper. It seems the 2001 bumper had about a 1/2" lip and the 2005 doesnt have this.
I need ideas on how to mount them or should I go back to factory lights with HID bulbs. Maybe go with 2 sets like I have seen in some of the threads? And HID's? I'm not looking for a flood effect. I'm looking to throw light further down the road.
Any ideas from those who have done this???

Additional info...

Ok it appears PIAA offers a mounting kit for their lights to replace the OEM in the same location designed for their model 410 lights. These lights are base mounted (U bracket like). Wouldnt my Sylvania X1010 mount the same?

I have the quad fog mod with HIDs

Its the 02 bumper but u get the idea. And yes, the 02 and 05 bumper use different brackets. the light is the same but the 02 bracket mounts flat while the 05 bracket goes in at the top and the screw is very long.

I did it! Well the body shop dit... lol

After my little Oopsy I had the body shop install my quad lights. They are the PIAA 410's which are direct factory replacements. They come with 9005 bulbs but if I'm wanting more light why not go all the way with HID?
Heres a picture of how their mounted. They used 1/8" steel and welded it to the two bumper mounting brackets. The only trouble I have now is they do shake a bit but I'm sure a piece of angle welded to the length of it would fix that.
Oh and my headlights are HID'd too. All 6000K so their super white and super bright. Only thing is around town they are too bright and I get flashed by oncomming traffic. No worries though I wanted them for the dark roads anyway and let me tell you I have day light in front of me when its pitch black dark!
