Light Question

I am in the process of ordering my new peace maker(bumper Pic of bumper attached)and they are asking me about fog light placement. they say they offer 4" diameter sleeves placed in the lower part of the bumper.

I am thinking of going with 4 lights instead of the stock two that are currently on my truck. What brand of light should I get and am I headed down the right path with four or will I have problems with wiring them to my stock fog light switch on the head light knob.

Any advice would be great!!

I would go with KC lights. The kind of light depends on how far or wide you want to see. Its all up to you. You should be able to hook them up to the stock wires with some connectors.

i would personally wire them to independent switches, i have a set of driving lights and a set of fog lights from KC, they are awesome, but bright as crap. if you got a lower power set of fog lights i don't see why you couldn't wire them to your fog light switch but make sure to reference your current draws so you don't burn wire or anything, so a relay may be needed to power them. hope that helps.
