When I'm in Missouri, I'm nowhere near that side. I hang out in SW Missouri.

And I don't wanna hear it about hills LOL, I know plenty about them. Curves too.

I keep my highs on until I'm about 200 yards away, even if I'm on a part that makes it uneven. I'm not sacrificing my safety just because you don't wanna look at my bright lights from a good distance away.

If your bumper stuck out more like mine does id say go for the bumper, I was going to do this but my parents talked me out of it because they had alot of problems with them shorting out and corroding in the winter.. I also wanted to put them behind my grill as well but then you dont have much room to mount them because the grill is flimsy and they wouldnt do well with opening and closing the hood... I had rectangle ones from autozone that i was going to use.

Mine are Hella'* I got through Amazon. I drive roads like that every day. They work pretty well, and are relayed to trigger off the low beams. So they are only on when the low beams are on.

Its easy to wire.
You need a relay, a switch (if you want to switch them on and off with low beams), wire, female spade terminals (x4), waterproof connectors to your foglight wires, and a fuse. (And probably some other terminals, whatever you decide to use for connections).
Run a trigger wire off the positive wire into one of your low beams. (Check for + voltage with a DVOM). One is +, one is -. You need to tap into the + wire. Run that to the switch (if you want to switch them, then from the switch to the coil), or to the coil side of the relay. Run a ground off the other end of the coil. This will be the trigger to turn them on and off. Then you find a constant 12V source, and run a fused wire to your relay. Then the other side goes out to your fog lights as their +12V input. Run your grounds off the lights to a piece of metal behind the bumper. Use waterproof connections to your lights, as they will be out in the elements (at least mine are, since the leads are very short).
That'* it.
Now you should be able to turn on your low beams, and fogs should come on (or flip the switch if you wired it in). Now turn on your high beams. The fogs should go out on their own. Without a +12V reference from the low beams, the relay opens and shuts them off.
Not that difficult.
