Are you talking about adding the civilian Taurus "fog lights"? Those aren't really fog lights, they are more accent lights and don't really have much function. You would have to swap bumper covers if you have the PI bumper. Not really worth the trouble IMO.

Can’t be done but if you’re looking for something similar, add the whelen surface mount ions in all white, set it to steady burn mode and wire it up to a switch or whatnot. That works too. A FPIS owner up here around me has done it, not too bad but it’s an option.

HELLA 998570001 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002MFTGQA/driving lights I'm adding two of these to my grill where the left over push bumper holes are i will just make them slightly bigger. and mount with some steel or aluminum stock.
Also going to get 55w hids 3000k for them https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07NCQVD9F/
yellow works better for snow and rainstorms as not as much light is reflected off the shiny surfaces.

i ordered the hella projector driving lights. I have not ordered the hid ballasts and bulbs/wiring yet but will soon. From a little digging I did find 55w should not be too high temp for these projectors. And you want the lens to get warm so it melts snow. I live in Wi, on the border of MN.

That’s a good option as said above. Or get a push bar, mount the spotlight to the top or lower center, there. Done. But check your laws first, as some agencies may consider it as same as a light bar and needs to be covered while driving.

Sure it can, you need a different front clip for the car with the fog shrouds, then pick up a set of Drive Bright fogs, and you have as close to stock as you can get without the factory wiring. They don't use the factory wiring at all so no worries there. And they look good, and only took a few minutes to install the whole set up.

That can work, however most people would stick to the PI bumper cover than have a civilian style lol. I would just highly suggest having them mounted on the front of the push bar, as well as have the angle ones on the top sides of the push bar, that will work. I know someone in Canada that has done it, very impressed.
