    I have a set of aftermarket foglights I want to install into my SOS Concepts bumper. I really dont want to cut the factory connector off of the trucks wiring harness. Has anyone found a connector or pigtail that can be spliced onto the wires coming from the fog lights?

    What year are you? Because I think in 2012 they switched to an H11 bulb, and I think before it was an H10 don't know if the connector is different just throwing that out there.

    Just do it, it is 2 wires and super easy. Absolute worst case scenario you can put it back together.

    If 05, you can google H10 extensions.

    Thanks just ordered some. Looks like they could be useful for other weatherproof connections as well

    05-11 = H10
    12-15 = H11

    We offer direct fit H10 or H11 to Deutsch DT adapters for wiring in aftermarket fog lights. Let us know what you need!

    Do you still make these sub harnesses? I have a 2006 TRD OR with factory fogs. I also have an ARB bumper with their ARB LED fogs and turn signals. I think both use DT2s on ARB end but will have to confirm if you're still around.

    ARB LED Fog Light Connections

    This information is for Tacomas that originally had OEM foglights. No further information from me on Tacos that did not originally have OEM fog lights/switches/wiring. My Taco is a 2006 TRD OR...and yes, I should update my profile picture to show the ARB bumper and such. yes newer (2012 up) use the newer fog light H11 plug.

    If anyone is fitting ARB's "new" LED #3500800 small fog lights into their deluxe Bull Bar, ARB provides DT2 socket connectors/pins in the foglight kit to mate with their Deutch connector (DT04-2P) leads which are attached to the actual fog light assembly. I don't think the previous version of ARB small fogs # 6821202 had Deutch connectors.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HNAT6SQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 will support the H10 from earlier GEN2s and have additional lead length to easily reach the ARB Deutsche connector leads. The other end(s) do not have a plug/connector. All you do is pin/assemble their DT2 sockets (provided by ARB).

    or for $2 more, you can use the both ends completed version @outxider suggests. https://www.amazon.com/TOMALL-Deuts...=1&keywords=dt+2+to+h10&qid=1595862568&sr=8-3. Might just be worth it. I already had the unterminated versions above.

    I don't know too much (or hardly anything) about Deutch connectors, but the DT2 assemblies provided by ARB are orange 2 socket with no "B" or additional arrow(s) on green like @outxider's version. I easily crimped the pins using a Molex crimper, and assembled the DT2 sockets, even with my limited experience with pins/sockets.

    Toyota Fog light Plug wires are LT Green (Positive) and White with black (Negative) as shown on page 12-24 on Haines Manual and verified by me on my 2006 Tacoma with OEM fog lights.

    iUDMToy harness lead wires are Red (Positive) and Black (negative/ground) and unterminated on the other end.. The H10 plugs mated correctly with the Toyota H10 counterparts. The Postive/Negatives matched up as required with no modification. The iUDMToy plug's wires/pins can easily be switched to the other position with a small screwdriver, a bit of logic in which tab to raise, and a bit of courage.

    The LED ARB foglight leads from the ARB fog light assembly are Black with white (positive) and black (negative).

    The combination of iUDMtoy h10 adapter lead harness, ARB DT2 socket connector plug, and the ARB integrated Deutch connector lead gives you plenty of wire length to connect the OEM foglight H10 socket and the ARB LED foglights.

    REMEMBER, headlights must be ON for foglight socket to be energized. I wasted a couple of minutes trying to troubleshoot why my OEM foglight plug did not have any juice to it even when the foglight switch was activated and vehicle on/acc/started.
