For the fogs You can zip tie the ballast to the U shaped bar right behind the lower part of the front bumper. Not sure what the actual part is called. But its easy to locate when you have the wheel off and the fender plastic pulled back.

Your foglights look good, I just switched today from 35w 3000k HIDs, to 4500k 55w HIDs.

I hope you don't mind, but I have a few more questions...

#1 You have to take your wheels off to change the fogs?
#2 With the 3000k, do you notice a large difference between the stock fogs and these?
#3 Any opinion on how the 3000k would compare with PIAA Extremes?
#4 Where did you mount the boxes (ballasts?)...
#5 How long did it take you to do the work?
#6 Lots of people complain about HID and blinding other drivers... As a fog light, is this still an issue since it is closer to the ground?

Right now, I drive with my fogs on all the time at night because I find the lows are just not bright enough... Especially in the rain. Trying to find the best, lowest cost solution, to rectify this issue.

#1 No. Very easy and simple
#2 With HIDs you will notice a huge difference vs stock
#3 HIDs will have a greater output vs PIAA
#4 If you crawl under the truck you will see a good mounting location for mounting the Ballasts
#5 It should take you 10-20 min
#6 I personally havent been flashed with my set up on my 2013

How many actually adjust their fog lights, or am I the last one who just realized how simple that was lol. I couldn't believe how much better they were with a few twists on the adjustment tab.
