Light Bar through Fog light switch?

Hey TW, this may seem like a dumb question but I recently ditched my fogs for a tube bumper and want to run my lightbar through the remaining foglight switch.... It's the stock one to the left of the steering wheel. My question is can I just splice my bar into the existing fog wiring? I know LED light bars pull very low power so could I just use the existing fuse system of the fogs? I'd like to keep everything looking as stock as possible. LED bar is a 21'' from Blitzpro. Any words of advice appreciated!

If the pull from the LED bar is less than or equal to the factory fog lights, just cut off the factory connector, splice in the LED bar into the factory wiring and you're good to go.

and if it draws more than the factory fogs, use a relay... no big deal.

I run a 20" bar through the fog light switch on my ZJ. Works great.

Wouldn't it be better to wire through high beams?
