What are these wires for?

Under the front bumper there's a small tube with wires running through it and a couple of factory-looking 2-pin connector plugs hanging out of it. I assume these wires/plugs were for fog lights but the Jeep doesn't have any. I can't even tell if it ever did, I can't find any mounting holes or brackets, and there's no switch inside for fog or auxiliary lights. There is however a relay in the fuse box labled fog lights. If these aren't light plugs then what are they for? More curious than anything, not really important.

Is there wiring in the dash to control the lights? If the wires are in the harness and there's a relay, then assume there must be wires somewhere for a switch to control them.

If you have the wiring in the bumper and the relay box buy my factory fog light switch and you can put fogs there. Yea the wiring will most likley be there for the switch.
