    i know a ton of u guys have done this...
    so why is it so hard to find any info!? :confused: i've searched for days on end, on and off, over the last month, on TW and google; i'm going insane. i've asked in multiple threads for help but cant seem to get any answers that are dumbed down enough for a lighting noob, like myself... :eek:
    sure i've installed my fogs following the directions that came with em, sure i've installed map lights from a 4runner with no wire harness and limited info, but i know nothing about relays!!!!! please :help: me
    the 2nd gens apparently take less than 5 mins to do this.
    i wanted to be done with this mod by now since i tried to start this morning 8 hours ago but dont wanna start a fire or anything, i haven't done shit but continue to search and ask questions in vein, so i started a thread and i swear the first person to say "search" is getting neg. rep.

    where do u get one of those special fuze things? what do u call it?

    so i just crimp the power from fogs to that thing, stick a 5 and 10 fuze in there and pop it into the tail light slot? seems easy enough :D

    so i assume i could do it this way to the ignition even?

    thanx! i'm undecided if i want them to be dtrls or just come on with the corners, but tails work too :)

    now i hope you're not fucking with me when you said "ON" in all caps and they wont turn OFF with the tails too.. :p
