Stock foglight amp draw? replace with LED bar?

Thinking about getting a small LED bar or a set of foglights from someplace like Rigid Industries. I'd like to use the power wires/fuses for the stock fog lights so I can control it with the factory pull-out foglight switch, but I don't have any idea what the stock foglights pull amp-wise. Any ideas?

Yea, the LEDs will actually be Less of a draw, I would think you can just use the existing wiring.. I just bought myself a 12", 72W, 30degree (means all SPOT, no Flood for "throw") that has 24 (2 rows of 12) 3W emitters on eBay. It's a Chinese seller (I'm willing to take a chance because it's So Much cheaper) and cost $130 w/Free Shipping. Has a die cast aluminum housing, SS hardware, and looks pretty good...

Haven't gotten it yet, can't wait!
