Unknown electrical connector - Fog lights?

Hey guys -
Trying to install fog lights from an '07 Super Duty into my truck. I am going to have to buy the old style mounts, but my issue is with the electrical. I have the whole old harness from the '07 which has a round orange colored socket with two pins deep in it. I found a socket/plug coming out of my headlight harness on my 2000 that is connected to a dummy plug up under the front bumper by the drivers' tire. Guess what? It looks just like the socket on the '07 fog light harness, trouble is that it's the same gender and clearly don't hook together.
What socket have I found? Is it the fog light connection for the earlier trucks - so I just need to cut the plugs off and connect them up?
I didn't have the time to fully look into it by busting out the multi-meter, here's to hoping that someone knows what I am talking about. I will try and get a pic up here if my description fails.

Thanks in advance -
Scott

The wiring is there, but your headlight switch is not set up for it. That, and I don't think the fuse box has the proper fuse/relay for it. I just wired my fogs (using a relay) to come on with the running lights.

Bah, man that sucks. I think I will rig mine the same way, with a switch on the power feed to the relay so I can disable them if I want to manually. I would imagine they sell universal fog light relays at most auto parts stores?

Thanks for the info -
Scott

What do you mean? What is the plug for? My truck has abs.

I have another general question about the fogs... how do I mount them? I went to the Ford dealer and they don't list the brackets separate for even a 2001 - she said the 2000 didn't have fogs as an option. Is there an easy way to adapt the later model bracket to work in the older truck bumper without a bunch of custom fabrication? I thought this would just drop in...so much for having done my homework ahead of time.
