2013 Toyota Tacoma Base Model Fog Light Mod, No mini fuse box for relay?

Hi guys i just purchased a fog light kit off of ebay for my 2013 Toyota Tacoma Base Model 2.7L. I been searching around on the forums and found everyone doing the mod for the fog lights but i dont have the little box behind the big fuse box under the hood that contains the relay for the fog lights.

This is the kit i purchased the other day:

Has anyone done a fog light mod on a base model 2013 without the small box with the relay behind the main fuse box under the hood and if so how is it done? Cause with this kit it looks like it comes with its own relay and you maybe power it off the battery so you could use them anytime, that's what im thinking?

You will have to wire them yourself.

Depending on how you want the lights to be activated, would depend on how you wire the trigger. For example, if you want them to be able to be turned on at any time, wire the trigger through the included switch and directly to battery. You want them to come on with your high beams, wire the trigger through the switch to the high beam + wire. Low beams? Trigger through the switch to the low beam +. Marker lights? Trigger through the switch to the marker light + wire. This will involve some simple splicing into factory wiring unless you either go directly to battery or you opt to use a "headlight extension" lead and splice into that (so you are not cutting into the factory wiring but are cutting into a more disposable / replaceable component.

The terminals of the relay would be consistent regardless of how you want the lights to be activated. Follow the instructions for them. One to negative, one to + battery through a 20A fuse, one to the fog light power, and then of course the "trigger" as described above.

It's not hard to install them, it's just tedious to do it neatly.
