Help with fog lights

hey guys, new here and need some info.

First off, 99' f-250 xlt 7.3L, 6.0L front end, basically i want to put fog lights and have them run off the headlight switch, but i keep reading about how truck only started to be wired in 2001 or w-e...if i get a newer headlight switch will it make my fogs run with the headlights or if my fuse box is not wired for it? so i want to know what needs to be done in order to run off the headlight switch, toggle switch idea is not my first option right now as it would be no problem to get working....i would just like to have my fog lights to run as they would oem.

thanks for the help!

Your existing OEM headlight switch won't work. Look behind your bumper on the driver's side fender. Kinda below the turn lens. There is a plug on my truck. I *think* that is for the fog lights, but don't know for sure, as my truck didn't have them factory. I just wired up the fog lights on my truck using a relay so that whenever my running lights were on, the fog lights were on.

Mine came wired, so I may just be talking out of my *** here, and one of the guys with more electrical knowledge than I have can correct. Why wouldn't you be able to just T-Tap onto the headlight power on each headlight and wire in a fog light. I ALWAYS run my fogs when my lights are on. There's no reason not to.

Mine being a e99 had no wiring. I used a toggle switch to the dash and batt. No relay.
