Adding Stock Fog Lights

So I'm getting ready to add some foglights. I have an 08 JKU X that came w/o them.
Added a new stock bumper with the holes for them and had a fellow Jeeper graciously donated his stock lights leftover from his upgrade.
I need some ideas on the best way to wire them up.
I'm pretty sure there are no harness connections so I'll need to ad lib wiring from the harness expecting connection on the back of the stocks into the headlight wiring.
Any suggestions or experience?
Thanks!
-Pete

You won't be able to add them to the headlight switch without having a dealer "activate" the foglight feature through the computer. Mopar makes a kit that allows you to add the stock foglights to a non-equipped vehicle. You may be able to buy the wiring harness?

I was going to go that route but instead of actually buying the $130 kit I simply bought a new set of fog lights, which are an upgrade over the stock fog lights, and started to wire them to a switch. I believed I would end up spending the same amount of time with both options, therefore, I picked the new fog lights. That way I wouldnt have to upgrade them later on.

If anybody needs foglights for those pesky 2010s, pm me. I know a guy who can get the same factory ones for less than half dealer cost.
