Re: Wiring Oem foglights to a Non foglight ranger
well, you can wire them just as you'd wire any other aux lighting...
but, if you want it to look/operate like it was factory, you'll need to do some research on your truck to determine what/how much work you need to do --
a) does your truck have the wiring harness installed to support fog lights?
a-1) check underneath the front end to see if the fog pigtail attachments are there. if they are, they'll be near the front ABS connectors near each front wheel.
a-2) check behind the radio bezel to see if you have the wiring harness for the stock foglight switch. it's a six conductor plug that will be clipped into the "blank" part of the radio bezel where the fog light switch would be if you had one.
if all the above checks out, then it's likely that all you'll need to do is locate a new (to you) bezel that has the fog light switch installed. swap 'em out and hook up the fog light switch to the harness. plug the fog light pigtails into the sockets you found behind the front wheels. then, pop open the under-hood fuse box and add the missing fog light relay, and you're in business.
if any of the above checks did not pan out, then you'll need to rig up the appropriate wiring in place of the missing factory wiring. in many cases, everything you need is already in place (except for the relay and the fog lights) on non-fog equipped trucks. sometimes the pigtails and/or switch wiring are not in place...
