    I got these fog lights from ebay, around $138.

    The lights fit the truck perfectly.

    However, there were no instructions with these. All the wires are pretty obvious with the exception of two connectors.

    Now, I have a 4 cyl 2008 Taco so I'm wondering if these connectors will actually connect to anything or if I'll have to cut it up and figure it out on my own.

    I've yet to open up behind the fuse box, maybe later this week. I looked around and couldn't find any pictures of anyone installing the OEM fog lights so for any of those that have, do these two connectors look familiar?

    Thanks!

    Have a link to the e-bay ad? I would like to get the same thing. Do they physically fit in the hole just like OEMs? Same brackets?

    the connector on the right looks like the connector for the back of the oem style fog light switch to me and the one on the left does not look familiar at all

    I got my first 4x4 in 1972...haven't been without one! I still like Chrome!
    I used fog lights like that and an OEM switch but I made the wiring harness. Look at "gsm's" sticky . It is a step by step how to.
    You guys should do the OEM cruise control to, its great.

    I'll take it.. thanks!..

    It as a relay and fuse. It also has 2 ground wires. I'm thinking the brown wire is the power and the other white connector is the trigger for the switch to activate. There is a switch it comes with and the green connector attaches to it.

    The switch will fit in the plug for the dash but it's not a perfect fit. A little sanding to either the movable part of the side of the switch or the inside of the switch hole would allow it to be pushed in / out otherwise you can push it in and it won't push out. There's also some space, when switch pushed out/off that you can see. I may get a factory switch later but this will do in a pinch and it looks good with the switch pushed in.

    I'm thinking they sent me the wrong wiring harness - this one will not plug into the h10 bulbs. The fog light housings fit the bumper perfectly.

    I'll keep you updated, just emailed them to see if there is an issue.
