After market Fog lights installed..

It took me about 3 hours, and that includes two trips to Lowes. What took me long was the first mount, once I figured out how to keep the bolts secured to the bracket so I could install the back piece (used nuts as seen in pic), the other one was easy. What also took a bit was drilling through the metal. I was going through drill bits (hence the trips to Lowes) Wiring was easy, I just did a quick wiring to make sure they work, so ignore the wires in the pic. It was getting late so I unhooked the wiring and will finish it up tomorrow with a nice clean look, using some black wire hiders (whatever they're called). Only question I have is what is an easy way to get the switch into the cabin? Is there a way to go without drilling a hole? If I have to drill, where's the best spot? Thanks. Enjoy.

P.S. I wouldn't recommend doing this, but instead getting fogs that just screw right in. I only used this because I didn't want to waste anymore money. So if you end up with some fogs like these, here's a way to do it.

Here is the bracket after I cut it and drilled new holes.


Attached to the light.


Nuts and bolts to secure it to the light, made it easier to put in.

Re: After market Fog lights installed..

Ok, I got all the wiring done and I finally finished. Here is the final product.

Ground and the relay. Also the wires insulated in the black stuff.


More of the wiring.





The electrical taped wires are my alarm. I am going to go get some more of that insulation tomorrow and do those a well.


Through the firewall.

Re: After market Fog lights installed..

The fuse holder. I temp taped it to the frame until I hit the store tomorrow and get some double sided tape or something to stick it there.


Right and left housings.




Wiring all nice up underneath.


The switch. The wires were not long enough to bring it to the dash, but I found a good spot beneath the steering column. I think I'll leave it there hidden, instead of destroying the dash.




Looks much better now.


Thanks.
