I guess it depends on your state's laws,..but why they would ban properly
aligned (not pointing into the eyes of an oncoming driver) fog-lamps, or
mounted on a roof-rack :-) I dont know.
There's no technical or electrical reason, a long as they are
fuse-protected. Some state's require some additional lights to be switched
thru the vehicle's high-beam circuitry (on or off)
Personally, I haven't experienced any additional help from fog-lamps. Maybe,
other cars may see you better in fog tho.
The WWW is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhea. Massive,
awe-inspiring, entertaining, difficult to redirect.
I'm sure it's not LITERALLY true; I can't see why you couldn't bolt fog
lights onto anything, one way or the other.
However, depending on who was telling you (dealer?) it may not be
esthetically or financially practical. The XLE comes with factory fog
lights; if the situation is the same as with my '97, duplicating that
setup on another variant would require replacing the entire front
fascia, plus buying the lights, brackets, switch, etc. as service parts
- an expensive proposition.
If NOT duplicating the factory setup, the front design doesn't really
allow a lot of good looking or practical locations.
