hey browning, i got the foglights on the bumper, but arent connected to anything, and cant find the harness. i have the original pigtails for the fog lights but would need to run the rest of the wiring... what would you suggest i do? just get rid of the fog lights and bumper or try and connect them? haha

There should be a factory pigtail attached to the truck up by the headlights, you'll run them down to the lights, add a fuse, and put in the fog light switch that pulls out. I think that's how it goes iirc.

It's a 194, you have to remove the mirror cap by releasing the tabs behind the mirror glass then just twist the bulb holder out.

Was getting real bad hotspots with the cheapo LEDs I put in a while ago, so I got a better set. Until they make a T5 LED with 360 lighting, this is as good as its gonna get...
