RockHard bumper mounting questions?

Well our RockHard Full Width fron bumper finally arrived today, and I have a couple of questions if anyone has one.

First it mentions in the instructions using the spacers or the winch will hit the grill. Question - if I'm not running a winch right now, do I need to use the spacers? Can I just hang onto them till I get the winch?

Second - how to mount the fog/driving lights? I have the stock ones, but picked up a set of Pilots to replace a broken stock one, and want to put them in the Full Width bumper, but the holes look pretty big, and there's no holes drilled. I know the instruction said to drill holes, but I'd love to see some pics before I do

Thanks!

Can't tell ya much about the mounting deal, I have a RH rear but not front.

But I can tell you that you may have issues swapping fogs.
Stock bulbs are 42w and canbus sometimes gets pissy if you just plug a standard 55w halogen into the harness. Some ppl say theirs works, mine would work for a few seconds then canbus would shut them down. I ended up using the factory wires to kick a relay when I was running 55w in the front.
But the factory harness drives 35w hid upgrades just fine since they pull less juice than a 42w halogen.
