I agree. I don't like the fog lights on my '13 at all. If the front bumpers were interchangeable I would consider swapping for one from a 2012.

Have to agree with all the above, the 09-12 fogs look better. seem to give the truck a wider stance.

I like the fogs fine for the '13 up sport bumper. That being said, my '11 alt chrome bumper looked better with the horizontal lights. On the chrome bumper the vertical fogs look odd to me.

I think the 13 and up rams with and without fogs look better.

I like the look of the old ones when the lights are off but when they are on I like the new ones better.

I know it odd but that's how I feel

Upright looked fairly normal to me on a 2013/4 until you pointed it out. But now the old style looks more natural ...

I like the 09-12 fogs. They suit it better

I can't compare to the old ones but I was very unimpressed with the amount of light they threw until I changed the way they were aimed--which was straight down in front of the truck--did not reach out very far at all! Now they are OK, but if you are looking new and have an option for the projector headlamps I'd get those. I find myself turning on the fogs often to provide enough light for regular driving, the headlights are not very bright IMO.
