fog light wiring

I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but I got a question I'm hoping one of you can help me with. I have a 2008 JK that has a plain bumper on it. No fog lights or hooks or anything. I bought a new stock bumper off eBay that has the tow hooks and fog lights. But upon inspection of the bumper I realize I need a wiring harness/plugs for the lights. Any idea where I could pick something like that up for fairly cheap? My plan is, since my light switch doesn't have the fog light selection, I thought I'd wire them to a dash mounted toggle. This is my first "upgrade" on my JK since I've had it, so I figured I'd come to you guys for advice. Thanks for the help.

Welcome, Howe. Good for you for wanting to do this. All you really need is a couple of fuses with holders, switch, relay, and some wiring. You can switch either the positive or negative side of the control circuit (pins 85 and 86) of the relay. A 3 amp fuse should be sufficient for the control circuit. For the load circuit, the fuse should be rated a little higher than the amp draw of your fog lights. For what it's worth, I prefer the negative side in case the switch wire ever shorts at the firewall. I'll post a schematic of each. This is the way I have been doing it for over 40 years and have never had a problem. However, I'm not an electrician. Let me know if you need any more help.

Those schematics will definitely help, but what I'm looking for are the plugs that go into the fog lights themselves. My JK was never equipped with stock fog lights, so I gotta find these plugs.

These might be what you're looking for but I'm not sure.

Maybe these will get you started?

Honestly, I'd just rig up my own harness or get an aftermarket one already set up with relay/switch/wiring. Trying to stay "stock" can get expensive.

I didnt look at the links that were posted but if you need just the plugs I can cut mine off and ship them to you. I switched mine out for PIAA fog lights tapped into the stock wiring circuit. The stock plugs are just hanging under there now.

PM me if youre interested.

The fog lights in the front bumper you have are H16 5202 connections which were used in the 2012+ wranglers

Here is the harness that will work for you http://www.amazon.com/iJDMTOY-Univer...+relay+harness Sent from a jeeper Here are the pig tales you need to add to the harness to plug into your fog lights http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-PCS-5202-H...fb04b4&vxp=mtr
