Anyone put real fog lights where the tow hooks go?

I think the OEM round fogs are decoration at best and serve no pupose. I would love to mount some in the blank where the tow hooks go. Has anyone done this?

Great idea, but I'm sticking with my tow hooks.

Re: Anyone put real fog lights where the tow hooks go?

Tow hooks are essential for me but I would like to instal an LED bar in space between tow hooks. I know a few of you have done this, can someone share some pics?

There have been several threads about installing tow hooks, perhaps there are photos there of what is in the area.
