    What do you mean?
    i Just put the fog lights where the blinkers were and the blinkers where the running lights use to be.

    Is that what you are asking?

    I want to do this with my 02 Taco, too. Can one of you guys tell me which fog lights you bought (and where), and how you ran the wiring, etc? Thanks.

    im pretty sure there is a thread on here somewhere how to do it but i pretty much just went to autozone and bought replacement bulbs for the blinkers but got clear bulbs instead of orange ones then all u have to do is take off your side corners locate the four wires 2 going to the blinker down below and 2 going to the side corners then cut them and switch them its really easy only took me about an hour.

    I'll do this eventually when I replace one of my corner lenses since it's cracked. Not that noticeable, but I'll do it when I do it.

    Actually it'll be done by the time spring rolls around since I'll have my new custom bumper on at that time and it'll need to be done since I won't have fog lights on the new bumper or anythign I could use as turn signals. I'll probably do it during winter break though since I'll have time. Or if I get really bored, I'll do it soon.

    Please follow janster's link. it's much better! I followed it and it's perfect, the only thing I changed, is I put a rubber washer in between the socket and housing, no leaks or anything and much easier to replace bulbs.
