Question New front bumper

So I decided to swap out my factory chrome front and rear bumpers for paint to match. In the process I got the back bumper with the exhaust wholes and the stock fog light holes in the front. I tried to order the dodge parts for the lights but they are 100 each and I need to buy this mopar kit with the wiring harness and switches to make it work and thats 150. Has any one put the stock lights on their truck? Im supper happy with the paint and just need some lights to get the whole thing to work, any advice?

I want to do the same thing . I have a 2010 SLT with the chrome bumper with out the factory fog lights . Its got a little dent @ the license plate holder , which was all I needed to convince the wife to let me get a new bumper . I have found a chrome bumper with the factory fog lights already installed off a 2011 Big Horn. My truck for some unknown reason already has the factory fog light switch installed with the head light controls . It even has a working fog light indicator on the instrument cluster . So the $64,000 question is : Will this be a plug and play swap ? And if it is does anyone know where to locate the recepticle to plug the fog lights in ?

Where did you get your bumpers? The dealer? I hate the chrome on my truck and would love to get colour matched bumpers and a grille. I may look around at scrap yards soon. I can get a good deal on paint through work if I have too.

look under the front of the truck. If you see wires tied up or plugged into dummy plugs on both sides where the fog lights would go than it should be just a plug and play swap. If not, you will need to order the fog light jumper wires. they run about $50/60 depending were you get them from. not hard to install the wiring harness.

It is all finished and looks sweet. The bumpers are from here and there. I need to get my comp flashed to run the fog lights but the swap was easy. I am just waiting for an excuse to get it in there so my buddy can just do it. Ill post picks after I get it cleaned up
