    Okay so I wanna do the foglights anytime mod, but I don't wanna splice into any wires or anything really since its a new truck...I did see a few weeks back a guy post in a thread about an easier way to do it, I don't think it required in splicing or anything hard at all...and I believe it made it so you could use fogs w/ parking lights, and then both headlight beams.

    I can't find it, so could someone post a link or a step by step on how to do fogs anytime mod the easiest way?

    I want the easiest way to do fogs anytime, I don't wanna mess any wires up..

    Thanks in advance

    easiest way is to add a wire between your fog relay and splice it into your green power wire in you fuse box. i don't think you can do the mode without splicing into something.

    ^^^ what he said. Just do it. It literally takes 10 minutes and looks seamless.

    Go to Radio Shak and get an assorted wire crimp/splice kit that includes snap wire splicers like this:

    And female crimp-on wire connectors like this:

    And a 6" long piece of 16awg wire will do the trick.

    Then if for some reason you want to un-do it, you can remove the snap splice and wrap a piece of electrical tape around the green wire that will have only a 1/64" long piece of bare wire that needs to be covered.

    ^ that's it!

    No splicing...just tapping into a wire. It's very easy with those blue quick connects. And the spade connector just crimps onto the little tab. Follow the directions in that link. It is very easy.
