    Scott, man you have some talents. Great job on the lights and well thought out, how in the world did you find that multi connector? cool. I'm guessing my Tacoma Prime Decals payed for part of this. Glad to have contributed to such an ingenious mod.

    Those things saved me a ton of time when wiring my leds in my cupholders, glove box etc.

    I ran a positive and a negative from my toggle - put the positive from toggle switch into 1 WAGO and the negative in the other WAGO

    Then I ran all the positive wires from each LED into the positive WAGO and all the negative LED wires into the negative WAGO.

    Like the wires coming from the 3 LED's in my front cupholders here.....

    go under the center into the WAGO's.......

    What is the purpose of bending the relay tab?? Can it be done without bending the relay?

    If you don't bend the tab, what would you connect the other end of the wire to after you splice it into the green wire?

    The purpose is to send power to it so it's always on and ready for the fog light switch to work instead of only when low beams are on.

    Are you familiar with how a relay works?

    Wow MEGA thanks to you my friend. I wanted to do this mod pretty badly but a few write ups wanted all this crap, special wiring and then there was a possibility that they would come on after 4 hours. Saw yours and I thought "even if this doesn't work the worst that could happen is I'd have to bend the fuse back. (by the way first attempt at this I tried to copy you're picture and flipped it around in my head so when i put the fuse down the left fork was out instead of the right :facepalm: ) LOL But i easily bent that back real slowly and it was all good to go.
    Took less than 5 minutes total and I was so damn satisfied! Looks awesome. Thanks so much!

    Sorry, I guess I should have clarified my question. I do know how a relay works!
    I guess what I was trying to ask was, could this be done without bending the relay tab and inserting a piece of wire between the connectors. But after trying this and blowing a fuse, I went through the whole wiring and relay connections again and realized that my thoughts didn't make sense. Anyway, I ended up just making 3 little jumpers for the other posts on the relay and the 1 to connect to the light green wire....took a few extra minutes but no bent relay tab and anytime fog light on mod complete.
    Thanks piercetiger for your write up
