Question Fog light question

So I was fortunate enough to strike a deer last friday. Don't worry, after going under the pickup and fifth wheel, Bambi didn't feel a thing. Anyhow the only damage is a burnt out foglight. So now is the perfect time for an upgrade I thought. I would like them to be brighter and to use factory wires. However I am not afraid to do some wiring if necessary. Any suggestions???

You may experience a stuck relay in the future due to over loading the stock relay . If your gonna stick with those bulbs at least size up the correct relay . I'm talking from experience .

Go and get yourself a set of HIDs for the fogs and you will be happy with that. If you want to add off road fog lights then maybe look at putting them behind the grille. Lots of guys do that (so did I) since there is lots of room behind the grille for lights.

Hella 500s fit behind there pretty well.
