    i did a search & found nothing on this! im wanting to put 4 sets of fogs on my truck. is it possible to just run all the wires from battery & ground to 1 of the switches, then jump from switch to switch & just run seperate accessory lines to each switch, that way i can turn either set of fogs on anytime, & not have to turn 1 on to get another to be on? im not the brightest when it comes to wiring. thanks for the help in advance!

    With a bit stronger relay? Same wiring? Next bigger fuse? Higher amp switch?

    You definitely want separate relays for each set of fogs. Be careful how much load you try to draw from the wires as they're of a pretty high gauge (thin). Better safe than sorry, IMHO. Each should have it's own wiring, relay and switch. Again, just my opinion. Good luck and post pics. I gotta see a Taco with 8 fog lights on it!!

    I have 2 sets. 1 set is 35w HIDs. The other set is Hella 500s that are currently halogen but want 55w HIDs in them eventually. I have seperate oem switches and seperate wiring/fuses/relays.
