Default adding foglights to my 2010 XL...

Tell me if this is safe to do....

Add Fogs to my 2010 XL bumper, install HIDs to them, use an HID harness off of a 9007 HI/LO relay harness from DDM tuning to power the ballasts, connect a switch to inside of truck and make the switch run power to the 9007 trigger wires off of the relay harness (not the 9007 connector of truck). Will this be very low current going to the 9007 trigger wires of the relay?

(I never used the 9007 relay harness because i sold the HIDs... I did not like the hi beam pattern so I sold the hids and I kept relay harness)

Yep, that will work fine. Just make sure you shrinkwrap your connections.

anyone know of any glass projector fog lights made specific for a 2010 ranger? I am looking for some projector fogs so that I can install some 8000K HIDs... but I cannot seem to find them....

Generic off-road, fog, and driving lights are not vehicle specific. You can buy whatever you want and mount them however you want, wherever you want.

Why do you want to do projector fog lights? If it's something you're dead set on, then go to www.TheRetrofitSource.com and pick up some projector lenses that you can retrofit into a fog light (for true projectors), but honestly just run a conversion kit in your fog lights. It will work better for fogs becuase it will scatter the light everywhere (half the purpose of fog lights).

IIRC, yes it is. Minimal adjustment screws. But it's been a few months since I looked at mine.
