    i need some help on a good location for 2 switches in dash area....all factory spots are taken up already....

    also when hooking up my reverse lights to my fogs in rear i have them on a relay from the tail light power supply.. now with the switch being installed as well as the jumper how would that work?? will the stock reverse lights light up when i flip the switch for the rear fogs????

    Yup, you gots a problem here. Not having anywhere to put switches in my OR led me to doing this:

    As far as your stock lights working when you flip the switch, the relay acts to separate the two circuits from each other and only the new fogs should turn on with the switch. Follow some of the posts from here to get a better idea of how this is done.
