    Hi guys,

    Trying to figure out how to set up fogs on my new C4 Hybrid bumper with the BD squadron sports I got for it. I'd like to use existing functionality of the turn signal stalk to light up all 4 (2 on each side), but I'm not sure how to wire that. Is there a BajaDesigns to Toyota adapter, or do I have to splice into the factory wiring and put deutsch connectors to the 2 light splitter on each side?

    Also, is the front lens removable? I'd like to have the logo and lettering not be upside down as these lights will be 'underslung' on the C4 bumper.

    The fog kit is plug and play for one set of lights, you would need to figure out where to split the harness after the Toyota plug to go to two lamps per side.

    Bigger question is why you want all four sports to be on with low beam and off with high (factory fog function). Why not use them with the high beam when you want all the light?

    Ps- front can be flipped for pendant mount no problem.. just tighten it carefully when you are doing it up.. ask me how I know.

    I just did this. Baja designs will sell you the H11 to weatherpack adapter and are $15 a piece. Baja Designs also sells a splitter wire so you can have 2 lights powered by a single wire/connector. So all 4 lights can easily plug into the factory fog switch.

    I made my own with this

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HNAT6CW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Basically you just cut the the ends off of the wiring harness and leave a couple inches of spare wire. Use butt connectors to tie into these H11 sockets and done.

    The front lens is removable, I think it uses a 2.5mm allen but be careful it easily strips.

    I have enough additional lighting that I don't think the high beam issue will be a problem, although thank you for bringing it up.

    Ok, so I need two of the H11 to Weatherpack adapters from BD. I already have the splitters and a bunch of 'universal fit' wiring harness bullshit I don't need. I have so many universal fit harnesses that it seems like I just cannibalize them to make what I need generally.

    I'm not sure why this didn't come with the adapters as it was a package thing I got for the bumper, I would have figured that they knew I was going to run them as fogs.

    thanks for the advice on the 2.5mm, I tried a T6 and T7 and I could tell it wasn't the right size for either.

    Ya the adapters are sold in a specific fog light kit but its an OEM kit for like $135. They don't sell the adapter online, you have to CALL them to order them.

    From their email, "Good morning the adapters are 14.95 apiece The order needs to be placed over the phone as we do not offer those on the website."
