KC lights on existing toggle switch

I was wondering if any problems would come up if I wired new KC 100 watt slim lite fog lights to the existing toggle switch on my 2003 TJ? I would install as directed with the relay but run wires to the toggle switch wiring harness. Anyone see any issues with that? I have tried the search but only came up with questions asking to run new lights off of the existing wiring.

Thank you much!

As long as power comes directly from the battery, then to the relay, and you use your switch only to trigger the relay, you'll be just fine. The only time there would be a problem is wiring directly to the switch.

Yup^
I have my WARN lights relay switched through the stalk. But don't power the lights through it.

Thank you for the response. I'm a beginner with the electrical aspect but I would really like to do what I can on my own. I do have another question. Here is what the wires to the switch and relay look like:

Switch
Pin 1 - Dimmer Wire
Pin 2 - 12v fused
Pin 3 - Slot 86 on Relay
Pin 4 - Ground

Relay
Slot 85 - Ground
Slot 86 - Pin 3 on Switch
Slot 87 - Lights
Slot 30 - 12v fused

Should I have a 12v fused source going to pin 2 on the switch and also a 12v fused line going to the relay, both from the battery?
