OEM Fog light installation

I found a good deal on 2003 OEM Fog lights for my 2000 F250 which does not have any. My question is my truck equipped with the wiring harness in place or not I know the switch has the pull out feature to turn the fog lights on I looked under the bumper and did not see the wiring harness but it was dark will look again tomorrow in the daylight. Do I need to buy a wiring harness? and is there an aftermarket one?

your truck should have the harness already there. When you get the new lights, hunt around for the matching connector and boom

OK I got the fog lights but could not find a plug anywhere Talked to local Ford dealer he said that my truck was not equipped with a fog light wiring harness even though the switch pulls out when the headlights are on. he said the fog light was not an option until 2001.
Can someone point me in the right direction as to what I need to wire up these oem fog lights?
Thanks in advance for any help that you can give

Could always just wire to parking lights. That'd be the fastest and easiest.
Or find a switch and wire it. Im in the same boat as you, have a 99 but not fogs. The wiring for me though is the easy part. Maybe getting a switch with the fog light indicator on it and just finding the pin out off the back of the plug?
Damn factory switch

If the factory switch pulls out, then there should be the terminals to make it work right. Pull the switch, compare it to a later model. If they're the same, cool, if not, buy a newer switch and the harness. Get it wired in all proper like, and life will be grand. Or, run them to an auxiliary switch like you would trail lights, and life will still be grand.

I don't know what the harness runs, but I'm guessing any F-Series from the same era would work. Junk yards are friendly places.

On your parking lights relay would be
Pin 86 Parking lights input
Pin 85 Ground
Pin 87 12v Constant (adding current )
Pin 87a Nothing
Pin 30 To your fog lights
If you do a switch fuse and relay it. But instead of Pin 86 to Parking lights you would run it to the Switch and from the Switch to Ignition

Sorry. Just tag a wire to your parking lights positive wire at the bulbs plug (should be three wires). Run that positive feed From the Parking light to Pin 86 of a relay(just a relay from your autoparts store).
You won't need to do any upgraded fuses or anything in the parkinglight circuit since all your using is for is a Trigger. That's why you run 12v Constant fused to Pin 87 of the relay, that's the feeding power.

My relay is a 4 terminal it is
30 = positive
85 = neg
86 = switch
87 = lamp
So I should run a + wire from parking lights to pin # 30 neg from parking lights to pin #85 and run a wire from pin#87 to the fog lights is this correct
