    My 2014 has the plastic blanks in place where a factory fog light would normally go on a better equipped model. My question is, has anyone added lights here and is there a kit so to speak that replaces the blank so it looks OEM?

    I just did this a couple weeks ago.

    1. confirm if your truck is factory pre-wired. If it’s a 4x4 v6 there good chances - check from under your bumper - they’re tied up there.
    2. Got these off eBay: https://www.ebay.ca/itm/FOR-TOYOTA-...-DRIVING-LAMP-OE/232752562920?epid=1938466262
    3. Got a factory fog light switch from an auto wrecker (new ones are way too much $) and plugged it into the factory spot - far left slot to the left of the steering column
    4. Got a relay from Napa - I got them to search it up, I don’t have a PN, but then installed it in the small relay box beside the larger one: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/sr5-fog-light-issues.695392/
    Voila!

    Yes there was, also another way to check if you’re prewired before buying all the components.

    So I popped out the three blanks ro the left of my steering wheel and of the three the far left one has nothing yet the right and the middle ones have pigtails waiting. Anyone know if its one of these or what they may be for? Yet to crawl under and look for wiring tucked in to front bumper
