Just as a heads up, because it hasn't been said, the ADV and Rigid lights are NOT for on road use. If you do hook them up to the stock fog wiring, do not use them on the road, it is not legal.
On that note, google the "how does a Bosch relay work". Most relays work off of a very basic principle, and a 4-pin Bosch relay (pins labeled 30, 85, 86, 87) is very simple, and is easily self-teachable, expecially considering your career. The 5-pin Bosch type relay is a little bit different, with a 30, 85, 86, 87, and 87a. I tried searching all over this website when trying to re-familiarize myself with relays, but there's really not enough information here to make sense, as alot if it is tacoma specific. If you read the "e-how", or "how stuff works" on the Bosch relay, and understand the basic concept, you'll be able to apply it to all kinds of different things.
Because you're a teacher, I assume you understand different learning types, I for one, need to do something in order to learn it. I can't just read about it and then apply the theory, I've gotta be hands-on. So before you start digging into and trying to tap into your truck's OEM harness, you might want to just get your hands into the theory; go to radio shack, get a spst switch, spdt switch, a Bosch relay, a handful of small test leads (alligator clip type), a few 9v batteries, and a test light of some kind. This is exactly what I did, and it's easier for me to suggest that, than to try and explain the theory to you.
