I converted my truck a few months ago... got the lights off Ebay, they are aftermarket, and with shipping they were about $210. I got the relay conversion harnes from GOS Racing, it was $69 shipped... the install was reasonably easy. It does take some trimming of the 'header' panel behind the headlights, for me it was easiest to completly remove it and do the trimming off the truck, but I would think it could be done in place. I have a brush guard on mine, and couldn't do it in place. There are pictures/drawings on this site with lines as to where to cut the header panel. Once this is done, there's no going back to the old lights. The lights and harness install was pritty straight forward, plug and play type stuff. The GOS harness is well made, has the relays, and feeds directly off the battery with a fusable link built in.
The new lights are much brighter than the old foggy stock 2000 ones that came out. I painted my stock grill black, and with the lights, I love how it looks. Now I just need to make a deer killer bumper to go with it, my stock one is too much chrome!
Sorry can't help on the fog light issue. I was wondering about it my self, the headlight switch has the "pull out" option for fogs, sure would be nice if it was as simple as just hooking up the wires under the bumper!
