    Anyone with an aftermarket bumper use the factory fog light wiring to install your new lights (if you have them) on your bumper?

    Basically, how much wattage will the factory wiring support?

    Edit: Found it thanks

    If you need any more wiring help, you can find a complete set of diagrams here:

    According to the fog diagram you can draw 15Amps. At 12V that should be 180W for the pair.

    I used the factory fog light wiring on the PIAA 510's and no problems thus far. Just installed everything last Friday, so not much time under my belt. From everything I've read, you should be fine.

    Ok cool...

    My plan is to get the ARB and mount 2 130 watt lights. Maybe I can just upgrade the relay? Pretty sure the wiring harness is heavy enough to handle that load... maybe not the relay though.

    You'll need to make sure to replace the fuse with one big enough to handle the added capacity of your new relay.
