    Like the title says. I am looking to get my hands on a extra fog light module.

    I do not know how many times you can bend the tab on the module for the fog light mod before it snaps off. It would be nice to have an additional one on hand in case it does.

    Do you mean the relay? How many times are you bending it back and forth

    It has been bent once, but I have been told they are only good for 3/4 bends...

    It is something I can see breaking and would like to have one on hand just in case...

    Yes I meant the relay.. I called both local dealers and they wanted $87 and $85 respectfully.

    Call around to local electronics wholesalers and let them know you are looking for an automotive relay and give them the specs (assuming they are on the outside of the relay). You should be able to beat that price I would think. So then you did do the fog light mod and if so what method did you use and how did it turn out?

    I have called around to different dealers around the state and so far the best price is $67. That is BS.

    But yes I did the mod located here

    Post 1 with the 5A fuse.

    It was a breeze and turned out AWESOME. Best part about it, it is easy to undo (just bend the relay back and install the spare 10A fuse after you take the modded one out)

    The longest part was waiting on the soldering iron to get hot.

    Grumpy from Toyota Nation hooked me up with a dealer in TX that is sending some my way.
