Need Help - Light Install

A couple weeks ago we installed my Relentless Fabrication front bumper. The OEM fog lights do not fit my version of the bumper so Iíve been shopping around for some new ones.

Yesterday I purchased some PIAA 5110 lights and I wanted to utilize the existing fog light wiring and the in-the-cab switch. My questions are: can this work? If so is it simply a matter of stripping and splicing the lines together or do I need to use the connectors? If splicing them together will work, which color goes to which. From the truck there are two wires, one thatís green and another thatís black and white. On the PIAAs there are two wires, one white and one black (pictures below).

Besides disconnecting the battery before doing it, are there any other things a wiring n00b should know prior to doing this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Wire from the truck

Search online for a Tacoma wire diagram and it'll tell you which is pos and which is neg. I see no problem with cutting the adapters and using butt splices

Ummmm...to make a nice clean install and if you ever want to go back to your stock plugs, use a couple of male-female crimp connectors...easy disconnect for future stuff

EDIT: green is positive white is negative
