All G2 Cruisers have the fog light holes, Base Models didn't come with fog lights they came with a plastic cover...but you can buy a fog light kit.
There is also a different MFS that has a fog light button.

Only inside the vehicle is it pronounced. That is what is making it so hard to track down. When inside it sounds like it is in the area of the torque and pencil bar under the hood on the passenger side.
Someone posted awhile back about a knocking sound under acceleration, it ended up being the alternator bolt hitting the frame...his car was in a wreck also. I think he just replaced the bottom mount & it solved his issue. You might want to look in that area for a bolt resting against the frame.

A video of the sound it makes would be lovely and would also help in diagnosing the sound and source better
