I would like to install fact fog lights on my early 99. What will it take? I want a fact install, not a toggle switch affair. Thanks for any info.

lights, mounts, wire and a fog light switch that you pull out to turn the lights on. pretty easy!

They way I wired up my fog lights when I had them, I took and ran a trigger wire from the parking lights. Ran the trigger to a relay, and wire up the relay to turn them on. Worked well for me.

Did you get this to work? Because on 99-00 trucks a fact switch (01 up) for foglights wont plug-in to that harness. Also 01 up the relay is hard wired into the main harness behind the glove box. My truck is a 00 and i have looked into this. I have all the stuff foglights, switch, mounts etc. It looked like I was goin to have to pull the pins out of my harness and change plugs and then iirc the yellow wire on the other switch sends current out when you pull it. And I was goin to go from there. But I would love to know an easier way.

I'm finding that I'm gonna install a push pull switch somewhere under the dash to a relay to the lights. I'm lazy!! Maybe just putting a lot of time converting from srw to dually right now so time is scarce.

I think wiring a trigger wire from the parking lights is the fastest and easiest way lol. Power wire from battery to a relay installed by the battery, trigger wire from parking light.

Then the fog lights will be on anytime the lights are on, correct? I want them seperate so if I don't need them they are not on. I'll need to try it and see.

I used a push-pull fired from a keyed source and a relay mounted by the batt. Works great. Put it on the bottom of column out of sight.

I do also but wouldn't put out the $120 for the headlight switch. Plus I wanted them to operate seperate of the head/park lights.

Like I did, see previous post. A small push/pull switch and a relay.
