To all the AFTERMARKET LED GURU'S...

Here's a question for you LED GURU's can you wire these aftermarket lights into the fog light harness so that they come on when the fog light switch is on instead of having to wire them into a separate switch?

Well I am asking this question because most people are running them off of a separate switch and it had me wondering why that was.

The fogs turn off when the high beams are on, so if you want them on all the time run a different switch. Are you replacing the stock fogs with leds or adding more? If your adding lights be careful of overloading the circuit.

As long as the amp draw is close you will be fine , I'm assuming since their LEDs they would be less

Bryan, I am not a guru so to speak but you can wire leds to your factory harness like your talking about without a problem, the reason being leds have less of a amp draw then your standard halogen bulb. I would be concerned about having them stay on all the time like your suggesting for the simple fact that leds are allot brighter and it would be a safety issue with on coming traffic. I have rigid 10" wired separate(center mount) and rigid D2s that replaced my factory 8" halogen lights on my Jeep. I can say without a doubt that if they stayed on all the time it would blind the on coming traffic.

Duncan

Lol thanks Duncan. Being that they would be wired to the factory fog light switch a simple push of the button on the switch and they are off if it's blinding other drivers.
