Fog lights?

OK I need some help. I getting ready to hook up some new fog lights to my 03 TJ and was wondering what I would need to do to tie them into my existing parking lights. Is this a simple hook up or do I need to just stick with putting in a new switch? Thanks!!!

Why would you hook them into your existing parking lights? why not just run them on a separate relay and switch?

I would like to be able just to turn on my lights and they come on and not have to worry with a separate switch to turn on and off.

Better check the inspection laws in your state, if they have any. In NJ they must go off when the high beams go on or you will fail state inspection.

Ahh I second that, I think this is true. Its really not too much of a pain to click another button to turn on your fogs you know, especially since you probably rarely need them

What kind of lights are you getting? If the amperage is higher than the ones you have now you might have to redo the wiring and go with a seprate relay. Just to bypass the factory one from smoking.
