    I am wiring a set of Hella 500 series driving lights and PIAA 510 fog lights to my new Relentless Fab bumper.

    I think I've got all of the wiring figured out, I am just not sure about the OEM rocker switch.

    Which prongs are for power, ground, and relay/trigger? I have read elsewhere that the top prong is ground, the middle prong is 12v power, and the bottom prong is trigger/relay switch (https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/oem-fog-light-install-prewired.121903/).

    Can anyone confirm this?

    I'm wiring up a 20" bar for my bumper. Where did you get that switch, I'd like to have one? I looked all over and couldn't find one to fit the slots in my dash. So I had to rig one up to the filler that sticks in there.

    I just wired up some PIAAs with this exact switch a couple days ago. I can confirm that with the LED on top (like in your pic) the prongs on the back are wired as you listed: top=ground, middle=12v power, and bottom=relay.
