Difference between Factory and Dealer-Installed fogs?

Adding fogs to my wagon - got the switch, relay and picked up the lower grille yesterday. There's fogs in the yard but they're usually in pretty bad shape so I figured I'd order new. I did snag the locking clips off of the car I got the grille from - the lenses were toast and it looks like the clips dont come with the new ones.

Rock Auto is showing two different part numbers for Dealer-Installed vs. Factory-Installed fogs. Any idea of the difference and which one should be ordered?

Thanks

Tough question, the factory kit for adding fogs included the lower grill so it's hard to guess how a Dealer installation would be different than factory.

Could one be an aftermarket setup made for cutting the std. grill?

Dealer install may include extra wires maybe because not all cars were pre-weird?

That's what I am thinking - the mounting would be slightly different because of the missing tab on the fog lamp grille. The replacements dont come with bulbs or wiring so I don't think that has anything to do with it.

I'm going to order the "factory-installed" ones.

Sounds like a good bet.

Even after the "kits" were no longer avail. many made them up from separate parts (including the proper grill) and this is the first time I remember the question of two types coming up.
