    Hi I have a tundra SR 2016 that does not comes with the fog lights just the wires for it . I bought the rigid industries led d2 to run as a fog light, my question is can I run those with the existing wires ?? If that's the case do I need to install a switch for it??? Or should I get a fog ligth wiring harness kit ...
    Thanks

    I think you would need the stalk switch that has the fog light control in order to use the OEM wiring. I would be more inclined to just wire to a relay and install a switch in the dash to have "anytime" fog lights. Would be cheaper and fewer headaches than to have to buy the new stalk switch and dig into the steering wheel components...Just my $.02's...

    Hey did you end up doing this install with just the relay and switch? How difficult was it? Do you remember which part numbers you needed? Thanks for the help, I just found some fog lights but no clue what I need to put them in.

    I just got my fog lights installed. I did notice however that the beams appear to be shining high up, like a good 5-6' up on my garage door at night. Arent fog light beams supposed to come out very low to the ground? If so, any idea how to adjust them?

    Yes, your fog lights should light up close proximity to the ground. Not familiar with these lights so hopefully someone who is will be along shortly who is familiar with aiming them. At 25', your fog lights should have a cut-off height of about 20" above the ground measured against a wall or fence.

    I just installed the stock fog lights from another Tundra bc my SR did not come with them. They really can only fit in one way, so I'm not sure how anyone can adjust their lights. And no clue why these are shining so high up, nowhere near 20" off the ground haha.

    I just installed Morimoto fog lights in my 2015. Yes the lights are stationary but there are adjusting screws in the back of them to adjust the point of aim up and down. You may have luck contacting the manufacturer and asking them how to adjust the point of aim. Oh, and the stock fog lights have adjustments on the back as well.

    thanks for the tip, any idea if it can be adjusted without pulling the grille and bumper parts all off to get to it? Weird I don't remember seeing anything that looked adjustable but it must be there.

    The easiest way is to remove the black stock surround by prying it out from the front of the bumper. There are a couple of wedge-type connectors - one on the top and one on the bottom that the black plastic surround presses into. You can then see the adjustment on the back side. You may have to adjust, remount, remove, readjust, remount several times to get them where you want them. I would advise measuring the 25' from a wall or fence and then marking a line (chalk) for the top cut off for the light. My fog lights are 24" to the center of the light from the ground and subtract 4" for the cut off line to be marked, or, 20" high line.

    Here is what the back of the OEM fog light looks like. On the bottom is a white wheel that will accept a phillip screw driver to adjust:
