well I suggest as SS bumper then you are good, if its an LTZ bumper you need the fog light grilles too, then go to autozone and get a fog light wiring kit

I went with the SS bumper and then bought fog lights that came with wiring and the switch. Here is how mine looks.

Its easier to wire up HID fogs since you don't need to find the H11 connector for the halogen fogs.

I'd personally use a relay to tie them into the low beams. When the low beams come on, the low beam energized the relay and then provides power to the fogs. That takes care of that pesky requirement for needing the fogs to turn off when the high beams are on.

If you're wanting to use the stock location for the fogs, you will need OEM ones. Ebay tends to have them.

I like your thought about wiring in the HID fogs and letting them come on w/ the low beams. Great idea.

So, just for a ballpark figure, w/ the bumper, fogs and wiring, how much would a setup like this cost?

And, when you got your bumper, did you look for one in your color? My car is Silver Moss so I doubt I'll find an SS bumper in that color.
