From cheap mods section. (piercedtiger)

Several ways to do this, but this one was the easiest for me, and I haven't had them come on 4-hours after turning the ignition off like other methods cause. Apparently at least one other method ties into some ignition or emissions circuit that turns on 4 hours after the truck is turned off to deal with emissions so the fogs come on for a few minutes. I parked in front of my living room window for a year after doing this and never saw them come on once so.....

Tools/items needed:
wire stripper
1 quick splice
1 female blade connector
6" of wire
drill/bit same diameter as wire
shrink tube/electrical tape to reinforce crimp connection (optional)
Locate the green wire on the plug in the pic
splice into it
run the wire to the fog light relay through a hole to keep it low and not hit the cover
crimp on the female blade connector onto the wire
pull the fog relay and bend the terminal in the pic to the side
put the female blade connector onto the bent terminal on the fog relay
replace fog relay


Edit:
Yes, this will allow you to turn the fog lights on or off whenever you want using the fog light switch as long as the key is turned to ACC or ON. Doesn't matter if headlights are on, off, low beam or high beam.
