    may want to take a look. you may be pre wired for OEM. i know some trucks are and just don’t have the lights installed. so may want to take a good look and see.

    I could be wrong but I think that the ones that are pre-wired are 6cyl. I haven't talk to a 4cyl guy yet who had pre-wiring for fogs.

    I have a 4cyl SR5 and its not pre wired. I just ordered fog lights off eBay and in the description it said the brand was "DEPO Auto Parts"-- does anyone have any experience with these lights??

    Barcelona red! I just installed the DEPO brand lights from eBay and the wires were long enough and the lights do not move around at all! They were $137 so the few extra bucks were worth it I recommend these!

    Just thought of something. Are these lights fairly bright? I mainly want them for looks but actually being functional would be nice as well. thanks again

    I bought those ones off Amazon! They are on every day for hours at a time. Had them for about 6 months now with no problems at all!

    Payed $80 for them

    Yes these lights make a difference! I never noticed how dark the first 15ft are in front of me until I got these!
