Fog light question, Help!

Hey guys, well I want fog lights . I would prefer toyota fog light kit, but I cant find a whole set. These are the two that I found. And by the way, I have an 07 base model and it has the slots for the fog lights, are there any specific kind of bolt pattern I need?

Here are the two kits:

Solara kit at 168$- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/TOYOT...Q5fAccessories


My favorite color (kit)! 120$
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/YELLO...Q5fAccessories



Which is better, and am I looking in the right direction? Is aftermarket reliable, when it comes to electronics im really picky. Thanks tacoma enthiusists.

Find some fogs from a Tacoma. You need the Fog lights, the switch, and the relay. The wireing should be in place.

Yup! If you have a V6, the wiring should be there...taped or somehow fastened in the back side of your bumper. The harness is probably ended in your dash behind where the switch would go. Just gotta find 'em.

4 cylinder.....no such luck. I had to install everything.

I do have the v6, And I would love to check to see if the wiring is there. I will do this and get back to you. And how hard is it to hook these baby's up using the wiring.

Everything plugs right in. The worst part is cutting the zip ties holding the wire harnesses in place

You can get the switch from Ebay or the dealer, and the relay can be found at any auto parts place. All the wiring should be in place.

I don't get the whole fog light thing. Generally, their beam patterns are useless at anything above a walking speed and when used in wet conditions, they simply cause glare for oncoming drivers. You're far better off with driving lights that have a longer reach with a pencil-type beam. People turn on fog lights because they think they it makes them look special... well... I got news. Fog lights on for no reason make you look stupid to anyone who knows a bit about lighting. Check out http://www.danielsternlighting.com for the straight story on lights.

Thank you I got the parts on order. I do notice it is plug and play, which is cool. You just hook the wiring harness in the back of the fog lights. But the only question is, how easy is it to set up the fog light switch and the relay? Is there a nice instruction manual for a prewired base model tacoma? Thanks!
