Bumper upgrade, bye-bye factory fogs

I'm going to be swapping out my stock bumper for an aftermarket bumper with no accommodations for the factory fogs. My plan is to mount a couple aftermarket fog lights somewhere on the bumpers. My question is, will the factory fog light circuit support a set of 55w lights?

From what I've read the factory fogs lights are something like 42w. Some people have had success running 55w lights off the factory circuit w/o using a relay. Others have stated that the TIPM will sense the current overload and shut them down. They ended up having to power them off the battery and use a relay triggered by the factory circuit.
