    Oh yeah, 1 more thing! For those of you using the pre-existing wiring from the OEM fog lights.....BLACK IS HOT! I almost had a fucking meltdown when I hit the switch and there was NO LIGHT :laugh:

    In every other project i've done, black was ground...stupid Toyota haha!

    I would definitely run new wiring. Especially in that location. Good to know tho. Thanks.

    Why???
    The pre-existing wiring is plenty good for these lights. They only draw 32 watts combined which is less than a OEM Fog light.

    Just simply the location. Did you end up with "extra" wire on factory harness?
    Yup

    Nope, I used these wire connectors. I put all the hot wires into 1 (1 from each light plus the power from the truck)

    And then all the grounds into another. It worked flawlessly and looked clean :)

    any idea if these would work on a 5th gen 4runner? seems like it should be a pretty universal application....

    Just compared my hood mount brackets to the pics at the beginning of this thread and they look identical....Hmmmm
