1st gen Fog Light Wiring

I'm to cheap to buy myself a light bar, so im going to mount lights on the front bumper. I just have some questions about this type of mounting and would like some pics of your mount on the front bumper, and also how do you wire it in order to make it so you have a switch inside the truck, thanks ahead of time

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

I made some "L" brackets and mounted them to the frame. I made them long enough to where the lights would be flush with the bumper. I chose this method so as to keep the lights from bouncing around when I was off roading. Only pic I have is this one.

I mounted mine in the bumper similar to Chris. As far as the wiring goes, they came with a harness and relay. The relays are on the firewall with the switch wires running through the firewall under the dash. I got two fog light switches from a similar year Camry and they fit right in the blanks behind the shifter. Looks pretty factory.

I have the fog lights below like jr coyote, and have been wanting to add lights to the bumber but have been nervous to drill into fearing i'll screw it up.
I would definitely suggest using a relay when you wire them up, the easiest way to wire them is to just wire them up right to the battery. This is how mine are wired, but it is better to wire them into the headlights or some type of switch that turns off when the car turns off so they don't drain your battery if you leave them on.
