Well, they're long from being installed on the wagon, but they've been sitting on the truck as long as I can remember (probably longer than I've been alive) and never worked, then I noticed they weren't wired in, so I put that thought with the one about that stock fog relay left on my car from when the lights were broken off. I pulled the lights off, and spliced the wires into the relay, and they both work!!! and well.

What I'm wondering, is if the stock fog light system is actually a relay, and how should I mount these, just drill biga__ holes in my bumper and bolt them on is probably my best bet, short of some sort of a custum bumper

Have you ever taken one of these bumpers apart? Unfortunately, I have, and there is not much there to mount to. There is a sheet metal box for the first inch or two, then it is just foam and plastic cover.

In other words, it might be really tough to find a solid mount in this style of bumper. You might be able to take the cover off and fab up some mount bracing inside.

Good luck, and be sure to post some pics of how you did it and what the finished product looks like.

strip off the plastic to reveal the thin metal and drill the correct size holes, it works

I got some lights on the underside via the sheet metal near the rear of the bumper as previously noted. took some work, but if you drill some holes you can fish inside the bumper to stick on some bolts. ill try to get some pics when i get home.
