replace fog lights with aftermarket?

My driver's side fog light is toast. Called wrecking yard and they want $75 for a used one!!!! So I was thinking about yanking both of them and replacing them with something aftermarket. Anyone done this on their 04-06 F150.

when u replace with the aftermarket ones. they dont mount OEM. you have to rig them up to fit.
my opinion is just get the OEM one. pay the money, have it look right.
whats 75$ half a tank of gas?



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

I have been looking on line at some for the 04-05 that have a black filler to fit the stock hole an a projector but undecided yet.

Such is life. Just passing through.

Hey Marc... Did you get a price from ford for an OEM light ? and before you say I'm crazy!!!
Just for shit's n gigles check them out . I called the local wrecker here to get some parts for the winter beater I'm driving and was floored buy the price they wanted to charge. Ended up
getting the parts from ford brand new in the box no problem with fittment for about 1/3rd more than used no more than after market since I did not have any shipping or duty costs.
May have been lucky on this one ... But does not cost anything to make a call.

I'll have to wait a bit I think. Just coming to the end of week 4 of 12 that I'm off work for WCB. For those of you that don't know WCB does not exactly cover all the bills or come quickly.
