Just picked up my RAM 1500 Sport Quad couple weeks ago.. haven't really done a lot of mods yet.. have lots planned for next year when it gets warm.. LOL

So far I have the Mopar side steps (will change later for ones that extend towards the box), Trifecta Tri-fold, Husky custom fit floor mats will be here tomorrow and Line-X color matched in the bed.

it's a start...

Default Aftermarket behind grill fog lights

Here are a nice set of Pilot Dual Series fog lights with blue "parking lights" that I mounted behind the upper part of the grill. Thanks to everyone in the forum that helped me with the wiring.

Hi there :Cpelton", you mentioned you have HID's, I have noticed the low beams are pretty good, but the High beams are limited for a couple of reasons.
The most noticable is the sadly lacking ability to light up the highway on the sides where the Kangaroo's hide (Deer.... forgot I wasn't in Australia anymore), and just as noticable is the way the light beam has a "roof" making the beam height very narrow, most annoying when there are dips and waves in the road, so I though about putting some foglamps under the bumper, but it's all plastic (I have a chrome bumper but no foglight cutouts), and they would hang a bit low for the snow etc (I prefer good old 6 inch driving lights anyway).
Then I thought about behind the grille, which presents a few potential problems. Because of the stuff they have behind there they would have to sit towards the middle, the honey comb inserts would block some of the light and would potentially reduce the airflow to the coolers/radiator etc. (By the way, YES the transmission cooler and A/C condenser ARE the same unit, the trans cooler is the top 6 inches or so, but on a warm day observing the trans temp in the center display, this seems more than enough.... for now).
So the best idea I can think of (apart from making holes in the chrome bumper similar to the factory option, or those silly looking licence plate brackets) is to build some brackets that slip under the plastic cover on top of the bumper, there is about a 1/2 inch gap, and found a couple of holes in the bumper metal. so without drilling holes the brackets could be made to curl out, up, and sit above the plastic to mount the lights, would have to make them with channel or 1/2 inch rectangle tube to stop vibration, but has anyone else thought about this or seen any set-ups.
I did see the very good, and helpful tip about how to wire into the power circuits, but I am the kind of guy that likes to do things so they look factory (yup, too fussy for my own good.... but I'm getting therapy...)
So I'm thinking about getting a headlight switch with the foglight button option, I haven't checkd the wiring diagrams out yet but there should be the pigtails (harness connectors) that I need, of course going through the computer this is only ok for "Foglights" (low beam operation only) not driving lamps on high beam, but I'll work on it. Of course all I need to do is take a power slpice off the highbeam though a relay like noraml, but I want a factory looking switch somewhere.
