If the truck has no fog lights then it has no wiring or the headlight switch with the pull out fog switch. I made my own wiring harness and put a rocker switch in because it is easy but you can buy the switch from ford and install the wiring yourself and make it look better then a rocker switch.

Look at KC Hilites, get their brackets and lights. They have brackets that will fit the '05-'07 bumpers.

hmmmm, that sucks the wiring harness isnt there, i know ide have to swap out the switch, but im wondering if its just a harness that you plug into the stock main harness, i doubt ford has 2 different main harnesses, ide be willing to bet the foglight connector is tucked into the fenders or something somewhere, and if you bought the harness that goes down to the lights and a switch itd be pretty much plug and play... any opinions?
