All Hella fog lights are rated 55 watts. The lighting sticky says your year fogs use a 37.5 watt bulb (899). So it will work, or not depending. The absolute safe way is to use a relay.

You should not have to do that much work as you already had fogs. All you have to do is wire the fog light 'hot' side to on side of the relay coil, and the other side to ground. Then run 1 wire (14 gauge) from the battery (put a weather proof fuse holder in there) to one side of the 'switch' side if the relay, and the other side of the 'switch' on the relay to your lamps. And of course the fog lamp ground goes to ground. Use 'butt' connectors when joining wires. For a clean appearance you can use spiral looming.
Note: I don't know how much money you want to spend, but there are often premade relay with harness kits you can usually buy just for aftermarket lights. Those are almost pure 'plug and play'.
Good luck! [cheers]
