fog lights replaced need to move to upfitter

I put some new 40watt lights I got from Plashlights.com in place of the fog lights. I want to power them with the same harness. I would have just installed new switches but plashlights forgot to mention there wasn't a harness, or I should have asked, one of the two.

How do I rewire the fog light harness to be powered with the upfitter switch?

Or am I over thinking this and you can control fog lights with headlight switch(knob)?

Never mind. The fog lights, for those that have factory lights and don't know this cause you can't tell if they are on or off, are operated by pulling the headlight knob out. No need to use up fitter switches when replacing factory "fog lights" with after market lights.

Unless you want the high beams and the fogs, or now driving lights, on at the same time. The fogs turn off when the high beams are turned on. An upfitter switch may still be a better option.
