Wj Fog light switch to AUX lights

first of all, I am sorta new to the forum. However, I did do a search and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for. (spent a better part of an hour looking)

ok, so I went ahead and cut the front bumper because my front tires were rubbing (285/74/16s) and I just really liked the look
I cut out the factory fogs, but left the wiring in tact and zip tied up.
is there any way I can run off road AUX driving or fogs to the OEM fog switch on the turn signal lever? And what would be the best way about doing this if its possible?

Can you do this...yes. Just make sure the lights aren't drawing significantly more power than the factory bulbs, or you might blow fuses. I currently run the two pilot lights in my front bumper off of the factory switch. The ones on the roof rack have an aftermarket switch and relay:

How did you hook up the ones on the roof exactly? Did you just run them straight to the battery?

oh, and for your fogs on the bumper; did you splice them? or just find an adapter to plug into the existing wires?

I just spliced into the harness, and tossed the factory plug.

Wires run to the sides, under the door molding, down under the door molding to the cowl panel, and to the relays I have bolted to the cowl panel on the passenger side. Relays are grounded, then go straight to the battery. I have switches in the cab that have a ground wire that goes out to the relay, and triggers the relay to send power to the lights.
