I have a Sport and am replacing the factory bumper. The bumper I am getting is the EVO 1/4 which does not have any fogs.

I want to install something bumper mounted. I am leaning towards Baja Design Squadron's Wide. I am partial to the look of KC's especially with the "KC Grill" but don't really see any that would be good for what I need.

I do not have added AUX switches so hoping for something plug and play until I am able to get some switches.

Lighting Requirements:
Need something that would augment my headlights during the South Florida rainy season (amber fogs/wides/cornering/combo) that is legal to drive with on. Also I live in a rural area so ample "flood" / side lightning is important too.

The Baja Design Squadron SAE lights are street legal. If the new bumper has fog light cutouts, get the pair with the "R" designation. If mounting on the top of the bumper or on a bull bar, get the pair without the "R". @BajaDesigns can help you with hooking them up to the factory fog light harness.

A regular pair of Squadron Pros with a combo lense would be needed for lighting up a lonely rural road.

How would the Flex Era 4 Combo's work for this application? i am worried that the lighting would be too "blinding".

I also like the LP4's and can go with amber driving/combo.

I've been pleased as punch with the LP4 Pros with the combo amber lenses.

for the outer two lights on your bumper, what mount did you use?
All 4 lights on the bumper used the mounting brackets that came with them. I simply used a factory steel bumper bolt location.

It was a last minute placement decision. My original plan was to mount those 2 on top of the bull bar, so all four LP4's would be in a square formation, but there wasn't enough room for bar clamps because of how close the lamps are to the underside of the bar. In the future, I'll modify the mounting brackets so the lights sit a little lower. All I need is another 1/4" of space for the bar clamps. Until then, I didn't want to drill extra holes in the bumper.
