    I bought a 2015 not long ago and I finally had some time to start looking into the little problems.

    The biggest thing to me is that the fog lights didn't work. I figured it was burned out bulbs, but after further inspection, the two wires going into the light are just worn through. I pulled the light housing and assembly out and it looks like the two wires just got some insulation worn off, then just broke over time.

    Does anyone know how easy it is to get the piece that connects onto the back of the H11 bulb? I don't have any pictures, but it looks like any normal light harness. I've been trying to search for part numbers and not having much luck.

    This is the harness that goes onto the back of the bulb. the two wires that come out seem to go directly up into the wiring harness of the truck, so it looks like I will need to solder these into a new end. I can do the driver's side easily, but the passenger's side broke off inside the housing, so there's no wire to connect onto.

    I've done a little..
    I carefully pried the plastic bezels out using a trim tool. Others have gone in through the wheel well.

    Looks like you just need a couple of pig tails. With it being a common bulb connector, you could grab them from a local parts store, solder and heat shrink the wires, and you'll be good to go.

    The bulb assembly and bracket that screw together are pretty worn down from vibrating. I need to just get a whole new assembly, housing, wiring harness, and probably everything related to the fog lights.

    I've been looking on Amazon, but they all seem to be cheap replacements. I'm not opposed to getting off cheap, but I eventually want to have white light light bulbs and fog lights. So, I'm kind of torn between getting a rigid style setup with some LEDs or getting a $25 pigtail and making my current lights work for a while longer.

    You'll definitely need the pig tails either way from the looks of it. If you're considering going with the Rigid fog lights, check out this thread:
