You can use it to trigger a relay. If you try and power any light more than 55 watts(I think), it mess with the computer.

I haven't done it on a stock bumper, but I hooked up hella 55wat fog lamps to the stock harness. Cut the wire right by the factory fog lights and splice the ground and power wires together for each lamp using wire nuts or butt splices or solder. Remember black is always ground!

I was thinking about using the stock fog light wires for a 10" or 20" LED bar up front but I think I am just going to tape up the OEM fog light wires/connectors and use my sPOD for my LED's when I get to them. I don't want to disturb the CANBUS.
