New Bumper

If my front bumper doesn't have fog lights, can I buy a bumper with fog light inserts & would the fog lights be able to work? if so, where can I purchase a new front bumper?

Yes, you can buy the bumper - you'll have to wire the foglights up to a switch to work, though.

The bumper and fog lights would work.

However as far as I am concerned to get wiring like factory, is -- in theory -- possible, but expense and tedious process. If you do an "aftermarket wiring" meaning you just wire it, for example you headlight controls it would turn on and off with it.

The short answer is the setup is possible, but expect draw backs for whatever kinds of setup that you would have to make up.

good luck

ummm.... we added fogs to my headlights and no I don't have a switch to shut them off, but we wired them into my low beams so they turn on with my headlights... not hard nor expensive.

Does not play well with others.

just get an aftermarket switch and wire it up, and through the firewall so you can mount it in that little cubby hole to the lower left of the steering wheel.

Yes fogs will work on your new bumper.

Easiest way is to splice it into the low beams/parking light
