Just intalled factory foglights on my 04 LS. What a pain in the a##!! After a trip to home depot to get some metal I went to work. Taking off the bumper super easy. Use a 10mm. wrench go between the grill and the bumper and take out the two boltls, than unclip the bottoms plastic, and the sides of the bumper takes 10 min. Now with the metal exposed I began bending and drilling in the metal, I did this by hand and eyballed the whole thing and got them perfect I put the bumper on and off a few times to make sure the wholes lined up and they were both set in the right distance on each side. I alligned them up with the bumper off than tweeked them a little with it on. O yeah not to mention that no one sells 880 factory sockets. So went to the bone yard and took them off a 99 Grand Am guy gave them to me sweet score! I used 893 bulbs same size just different wattage 37.5 compared to 25 not enought to burn anything up still OEM both sizes are recomended. They have less yellow more of a amber yellow tint. Anyway after some sweat, drilling, and luck they are in. O yeah super easy to ground them. The brackets run to the frame so I just put a circle on the end of the ground and grounded right to the back of each light. Ran one power wire from the fog light spot in the fuse box, split it and tada power and of course mounted a switch in the dash. Clean and simple one wire under the hood hidden of course. Well enough of me talking check'em out!

If you have the brackets will be easier

If you have the brackets already it won't be nearly as tough as starting from scratch. I had no brackets I bent and shaped and well made it work If you have the brackets your golden. Oh yeah what kind of Beer we drinkin lol. Good luck won't be hard but your brush gaurd may make it a paind to get the bumper off easy depending don't know what kind you have on.

:woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo::woohoo:

What kind of beer do you want? I have Shipyard Pumpkin Ale, Brooklyn Brewery Local 1, Yuengling Lager, Red Stripe, and Magic Hat Hopdevil.

The bumper HAS to come off? :(

That may scratch that idea for me then.

:( :( :(

Great job! :thumbsup:

I was going to do the same thing to mine until I bashed the bumper on the sand dunes and broke the cover mounts. I decided to have a custom bumper made and had the fog lights (actually Angel Eyes driving lights) built in. It's amazing how much they light up the road in front of the TB:).

We can put our man sized brains together and drink them stupid we may even come up with a better way. We can just get drunk and duct tape them on and stick flashlights in them for bulbs lol :bonk:
How did you get them installed without taking the bumper off? For real that seams like it would be impossible to do.

Ewingjk that bumper looks sweet really nice!!!
