Default 97 fog light wiring harness/light lense

Just bought a valance and fog lights that didn't come with the wires or switch. I also need a lens for one of the fog lights. State your price.
Thanks!

I recently got a set of lenses off evilBay for about $25 a set. If you search for 93 mustang fog lights, you may find they're cheaper than the Rangers even though they're the same lens.

I don't have an OEM wiring harness, but I do make a wiring kit to allow your OEM fog switch to operate pretty much any lights. Basically bypasses the OEM wiring & lets you have your fog lights on whenever you want, even with the high beams.

Thanks I'll look.
I saw your conversion kit but my ranger didn't come with fog lights so I don't have a switch to start with. And the back of the fog light isnt just wires, it has some sort of adaptor. I'm not good with wiring so that's that best i can describe it.

Ah, well you don't need any of the OEM wiring, not even on the fog lights themselves.

You will need some wire (16ga to 14ga should be good) to run from your lights to the relay under the hood/fuse holder (included in the kit) and some wire (18ga to 16ga) to run through the firewall to connect to one of the wires from the kit. The other 4 or 5 wires are connected in the cab, behind the radio bezel. A roll of electrical tape or heat shrink tubing to cover any wire connections to help keep the elements out & basic tools, screwdrivers, wire cutters/crimpers, pliers, socket set, etc.

My kit bypasses everything OEM.
If you can squeeze a pair of pliers, you should be able to install my kit

My deluxe kit even includes an OEM fog switch.

Feel free to check out my wiring kit thread <HERE>

A voltmeter or test light will come in handy if you don't already know which wires you'll need to tap into (I include my instruction manual with each kit to make life easier), but I bet your 97 is pretty close to my 96 wiring, so you can probably use my wiring instructions.

I will definitely look into when I can get my check. And I am sketched out when it comes to wiring.
