Default No foglights

My 2014 Tradesman/Express did not come with fog lights. In fact, there are no cut-outs in the bumper for them. I would really like to have fog lights. What can I do?

Easiest route may be a light bar... Something like this:

Plus it looks cool and helps protect the front of your truck.

You have a few options. You can swap to a Outdoors man or big horn bumper, they have provisions for fog lights. Also, Mopar makes a kit that adds lights to where the tow hooks normally are.
AND, then there is the LED lights. I have a pair of 3 inch LED cubes mounted behind my grill. Bull bars with lights mounted are a popular option as well.

You can get creative....just depends on what your final desired out come is.

You could mount round fog lights behind the grille, you could do the above option options as in the bullbar with fogs or swap bumpers.

LED lights are amazing for brightness. Detonators set up with the LED cubes is probably very bright. Can also get a LED light bar which come in sizes from like 15" up to 50" and are extremely bright.

I believe they have an oem kit for your truck(they did on the previous 4th gens, anyway).

one of my local mod shops said they could mount them in the front bumper, if you wanted to go that route, would also look factory but they would have to cut the bumper

FYI,
The bumpers are different, the ones with fog have an different form around the lights. You can't just cut some holes and expect the factory fog lights to line up.

I work at the tool shop where the bumper dies were made, I worked on a lot of the designs for this bumper.

As for the lights in the tow hooks, as of recently my dealer tells me they are unavailable. Seems like there was a prototype but they never went into production. I believe they were in the Mopar catalogue for 2013 and taken out for 2014.

Add a bull bar with lights. That was my preference.

Thanks for the suggestions. I want a factory look so think I'll wait until mopar offers a kit.
