Fog light issues

Ok, am I missing something here? So I go to powerbulbs website and ordered new headlights and fogs to match. Truck is a 2013 LTZ. Got the Diamond vision for them both. On their website it says H11 for the lows obviously, but H3 for the fogs. So I bought them, and once i got the fogs realized they are different from the factory ones. These are single wire, the oems have the 2 prong plug. Not sure what to do here, I cant find any info either. Any help is appreciated

No worries. I don't see anything accurate for the fogs on that website. The fog socket type is 5202. Based on the website's offering, the closest cross reference I can find is PSX24W. But there's no guarantee they'll clip in perfectly.

Lol right? I dont understand why they have the fog bulb style as h3. They do look similar for the most part besides the plug style. H3 is single wire, 5202 is 2 pin style. I'm sure I can make it work, I just was hoping someone else had this similar experience.

Ok so I got bored today, and decided to try and retro fit the h3 bulbs in the 5202 housings. I must say, even though it's not 100% finished, it came out great. Only thing I need to do now is figure out how to power the bulb itself. I know the one wire is the power, the housing I believe is the ground. Now the factory harness has a purple and black wire. I have to figure out which is which.
