I've found that inside the bumper is the best place for the fogs. You an actually reach up into the bumper and use either double sided tape or velcro and stick it in the reinforcement bar

zip tie the ballast on the actual bumper inside, the double sided tape will not hold for long.

hey bro. you can go through the wheel well but what i did was when i had the headlights out i was able to access most of the area necessary and double side taped it to the alumminum enclosure that runs across the front bumper. I hope this helps and feel free to ask me anything else.

Yep, go through the wheel well. There are I believe 8mm bolts that hold the plastic part in.

I just popped out the fog covers, removed the 8mm, and mounted it there on there.
