No fog lights to fogs, what would you do

Alright..my 07 x has never had them... I got a freebie rubicon bumper to replace my trashed one, I need to stubby it and get some lighting.. Budget minded (with in reason) what lighting would you put in the holes. I need everything down to the switch, I'm happy to run these manually through their own switch so I can do with or with out headlights,hi/lo. Also I'm thinking Amber since for some reason I recall seeing the amber is better with snow,fog, shit weather in general but that is likely not the case so I'll listen to you guys.... I through about hacking it and running a light bar centered in their too...it's a free bumper so I'm fine with getting creative if I get the direction!

Bang for the buck, the Morimoto Type M LED Fogs are the way to go. 170 bucks for a set, direct bolt in, and can be wired without the factory harness because there is a 9006 plug on it which is pretty universal.

There are companies that make a bracket to secure any LED pod to the fog lights. I have a set of rigid D2s in mine and use them as my high beams.

The real best bang for the buck (only $40 for the pair) is to buy factory take off fogs from Rubitux.

I saw the bracket options and figured that is the likely route with some d2s or knockoffs...now how about idiot proof wiring and switches..I would rather throw a switch in one of the empty slots by the esc kill button if I find one...eventually locker switches will take the remaining 2 slots
