Wiring stock fog lights

I got some windshield brackets for lights and I have an extra set of stock fog lights that i wanted to mount on there. Can I use this same diagram to wire them up?


Or would I have to use a relay for each light?
The reason I ask is because on the factory wiring diagram for the factory fogs, it uses 2 relays (Fog lamp relay one and Fog lamp relay 2).. But then they also hook up to other things that I won't be hooking up to. Just an on/off switch.

I like this KC schematic better: http://www.kchilites.com/faq/instruc...layDiagram.pdf

Cut and dry. The plan you have runs constant hot power to the switch Bad idea. You would need a switch rated for whatever you are fusing your lights with. Not a good idea. With the KC plan, you can wire up two lights very easily and run a low amp switch to the dash, fused of course. 3 amps is plenty. Then run your power to the relay with a 25Amp fuse.
