wiring in fog lights

Well, its been awhile since i've done anything to the truck and have decided its time for some fog lights. I will be wiring them in so they come on when I pull my headlight switch and I will be running them through a relay.

I am a freak when it comes to a factory looking installations and want to use the open relay spot in my fuse block under the hood.

How do I go about wiring everything in there and do I need any type of special connector for the relay to plug in properly?

HI.....I'm Kyle

Get a power box from a junker for the relay terminals. After you pry out the red parts, the terminals will slide out the back when you use a small screwdriver to release the clip.
If you need more relay spaces in the future, An Aerostar has a 4-relay box that you can replace the 2-relay box beside the power box with, mounts to the same holes.
