Help please! Fog light harness extension

I'm in the process of putting on a LoD bumper. I'm at the point where the instructions tell me to extend the fog light wiring in order to place the lights in the relocated position. Do I need to cut and splice the wires or is there enough wire tucked back up under the jeep?

You will need to cut and splice new wiring for the Passenger fog light. I had to do this for my LoD middy front. I can't remember what gauge wiring I purchased, but I used the heat shrinkable crimping slicers to join the wires for a sound seal and then put wire conduit around the new wire for protection from rubbing.

I finished the install today. I pulled enough wiring out of the plastic protector to make the plugs reach for now. I will get some heat shrink protectors and extend them as soon as I can. I had to call LoD for the info and they were very helpful.
I'll post pics later.

Just installed an LoD bumper and winch yesterday. and at that point of extending. the harness. I'm just looking at getting the same grade wire and adding about 8" to each side and heat shrink it.

I've been looking into this wiring harness. I was looking at the connector styles and I'm pretty sure I have 2504/PSX24W style plug connectors on my 2011 JK which have a different tab orientation. Any ideas?

I installed the LoD about two weeks ago. I just spliced and heat shrink and tucked everything away nicely.
