I have moved my rear fog lamp to the left side of the truck - It turns out that there is a single factory square nut with M10 threads welded to the bottom of the rear cross member of my '97 - just where I wanted to put the light. I made a simple bracket and bolted it in place. The lamps sits up just underneath the step bumper. it is funny I did not see this mount point before - I would have used it in the first place.

Thanks for the recommendation -I use to have my reverse / work lamp mounted directly above my license plate. The current location is actually good for what I use it for. I do some night mountian bike riding and having the lamp up higher is easier on the eyes when I load the bike up on a rack. Also I get moderately better shadow and depth perseption when reversing at night off road. When the light was lower it was hard to tell if a drop in the road was 5 inches or several hundred feet because the shadow was cast directly in my line of site. ( I have had to make a 2 or 3 point turn in pitch black conditions on more than one of the switchbacks I've gone though in the eastern sierras) With the light up high, shadows are cast downward rather than outward from my line of site.
