check out oznium.com. They have all sorts of LEDs. strips,spots, halos, whatever. Many are 12V compatible and need no resistors.

If it helps (and since no seems to have mentioned it), that's the RK Sport bumper. Might help with googling.

Do you have the instructions to mount the OEM lights with the RK Sport bumper? I failed the inspection because i dont have turning signals on the front. So if you know how to mount them, it would help me a lot if you provide some info. Thanks!!

I have to look in my email for "instructions", but I do have this pic.

The mounting points are very subtle , but as you can see in the pic, the OEM lights do fit.
My bumper has a screen/mesh covering the cutouts, and the mesh is mounted using one of the points needed by the OEM light.
