Wiring Light Bar to fog lights

So I just picked up a rough country 20" light bar with the daytime running lights, and my idea is to run the DRL's to the fog light switch and the like actual light bar lights to the upfitter switch. I have my old light bar set up to the AUX 1 switch already. I am not wanting to cut a hole into my dash for the three way switch it comes with. Never had to deal with a three way switch before so I am kind of tentative to jump into it head first with out the experience. I just don't want to start cutting wires and do a trial and error thing if I don't have to.

Thanks!

assuming this switch is center off, then each way activates one of the lights?

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.

OK, from what I can see the switch activates the appropriate relay for the light you are wanting

I think you need to do some testing to see if applying 12v to either of the end terminals on that switch will work the relay or not
assuming again that the center terminal is common

may need to be ground, kinda depends on how the relays are wired
