Although the need for answer is more or less gone, let's answer.
Yes it's usable with the rear fog light. To have front fog lights in the stalk you need switch assy that have two steps, first front fogs and then rear fog lights.

Can one of you experts tell me where is on the picture below the firewall grommet or whatever it's called to pass the fog light cable through. the fog light kit manual has some pictures but they don't match. I have 2009 base 2.5L 4wd

Do you mean the same rubber in the last picture but in the left side of vehicle?
It's in totally symmetrical place.
To access it you must remove wipers, the plastic cover and that metal part, what is still on it's place.

Was wondering mainly about brackets if I choose this approach and what size diameter light would work...?

Thanks for any help.
Looking to do something different too. Wondering where I could mount these: My Hella Lights :: Micro DE Halogen Fog

or

WOW, its been 2 years still I opened this thread. Amazing!

I installed one of those Chinese made Ebay fog light kits ($69).

The lamps have been great no leaks or any kind of problem BUT the actual usefulness of these fog lights are a joke, they do nothing in the fog and basically are not good for anything but eye candy. A major waste of money!
