    Any one know how to jump/wire up your fog lights so they work with your high beams?
    Edit: I do not want them on with the running lights, just the high beams.

    I use this method, however I didn't find it necessary to run all the way to a switch inside the cab I tied directly to the ground on the driver side underneath the hood, now every time I turn my running lights on my fog lights come on with them. I will take some pics in a little while to show you what I did

    It takes a little over 1' of wire, a female wire connector and a loop to go under the 10mm bolt for the ground. I literally did it in under 5 minutes with stuff I had in the garage. And this method prevents you from cutting or splicing any factory wires so can be put back exactly the way it was if you want to, now they come on with the running lights and stay on with the high beams

    Come on guys, there is a nice one on our own forum:
    https://www.tundras.com/threads/diy-fog-light-mod.371/


    Unfortunately it is for driving lights and high beams. Don't know if I have seen one for only high. I'm sure it's possible. Jumper from the high beam cuircuit only. Remove the one from the driving light.

    You would have to run a switch into the cab just like the guy did in that video

    Thanks for this. About as easy as it is for the Tacoma. One thing that I didn't realize is that the on/off control is completely disabled. I was thinking that it gave the OEM fog switch independent control.

    That's what I thought too, but I just leave mine to the off position. I really like that the fog lights come on with the running lights now

    I have one for you guys.
    In the future I'm planning to get a lightbar in the bumper. My thought was to connect the fog lights to another added switch to run on or off with both regular and high beam lights and somehow be able to use the stock fog light switch as the light bar switch and be able to run it independent of any other lights. That way the light bar switch is always at my finger tips.
    Now the question is how?

    I haven't seen the wiring diagram but I would think that it does. I just connected to the terminal shown in the picture.
