fog lamps

Got lucky on ebay and was able to score some new OEM Ford fog lamps for my early 99 PSD. I always wanted the added visibility and good looks that they would offer. My question is this, was this truck likely to have been factory wired for fog lamps? The headlight switch is like the newer Superduty trucks with the "pull to operate" knob. IF its wired for lights, where would the wires be stubbed out to? How about the mounting?

i would think that if it didnt come wit them it more than likely didnt come with the wiring, the back of the switch might have empty leads that "would" go to the lamps

huh, guess I was under the assumption that it would be a plug and play install. Oh well, guess I'll just have to get a relay and do it the old fashion way.......

Wow I'm doing the same thing with my early '99 this weekend. I'm going to a truck junkyard in San Diego that has a grip of superduties. I plan on snagging a set of factory foglights, tow hooks, and power mirrors along with the wiring harnesses.

check this item out on ebay, sounds cool....200045336408. Its a relay kit that makes the fog lights stay on high beam or low beam. Also, let me know how the wiring harness works out. Where does it plug in? My guess its some where in the high voltage fuse box under the hood....let me know alsoif you had to take the bumper off. I suspect thats the best way....keep me posted.

Steve just got back from S.D. this afternoon. I went to a junkyard in Chula Vista called "Silverado Truck Salvage." Came across about 6-7 99-04 Superduties, plus 2 Excursions. I was excited but when I got there the trucks were completely totalled, nothing in my book worth taking off. I like to go to the "U-pull it" type of yards. These clowns were going to charge me $40 for the two towhooks. Anyway, the search continues for OEM upgrade parts.

Fog Lamps

I just bought a 2000 F350 Lariat 4x4 with the 7.3L...

I was amazed that the early Lariats didn't always come with the Fogs. My assumption was that the Lariat was "fully" loaded.

I traded my brother a used CAI for a complete bumper that had the fogs in it. I discovered that I was also missing the chin spoiler and am bolting that on too. Now I'm at the point where I need to wire the package up. I recall seeing an auction in Ebay that had the lights, late model switch, and wiring to make the truck "factory". I'm not sure if that was something that someone cobbled together, or if it was OEM stuff pulled from a donor vehicle. Anyway, I'll be looking into this more. If I find out the secret, I'll let you guys know. Maybe there is a market for this?
