    Hey, just wondering if anyone here has some suggestions on getting the spotlights (came with bumper) and lightbar (purchased separately for bumper) wired from my Hooke Road bumper on my 2008 SR5 tundra. It’s doesn’t have a factory fog light switch and I’m a newbie when it comes to electrical. Any help/suggestions of the simplest way to get both the spotlights and lightbar connected would be greatly appreciated! Here’s the bumper if that helps https://www.hookeroad.com/collectio...kid-plate-for-2007-2013-toyota-tundra-bxg5204
    Thanks!

    Since your Tundra doesn't have a factory fog light switch, you'll need to install an aftermarket switch. Choose a switch that can handle the amperage of both the spotlights and lightbar combined. Then identify a suitable power source. You can tap into the battery directly with an inline fuse for safety, or use an auxiliary fuse box if you prefer a more organized setup.

    You will also have to route wires from the spotlights and lightbar through the bumper to the interior of the vehicle. Make sure to secure and protect them from potential damage. Connect the positive wires from both the spotlights and lightbar to the corresponding terminals on the switch. The negative wires can be grounded to the vehicle's chassis.

    Before finalizing everything, test each component to ensure they light up properly when the switch is activated. Once tested, tidy up the wiring with zip ties or loom, ensuring all connections are secure and insulated. Have a good ride with your installation

    You can also run the lights off a relay that can handle higher currents and then use the switch to control your relay. All of this takes some knowledge in electrical wiring.

    if they have something like the voswitch I put in my jeep that would be best. I just have two relays mounted above my fuse box for my lights in the tundra.

    I had never heard of Hookeroad Bumpers.

    They seem really good and they are about half the price of most other bumpers.

    Does anyone have any experience with them?

    I have them on my Jeep. The front bumper came on the jeep when I bought it and had some other companies name on it. But it’s a Hooke Road. Then I bought tube doors and most recently a rear bumper.

    They’re made in China I’m sure (what isn’t now days?) and packaging could have been better on the rear bumper. The doors were fine.

    They seem to be good quality for the $$$ and they took care of the couple of issues I had with the parts in shipping.

    Now how well they would hold up if you use them on the trail or so I couldn’t tell you. Both my off road vehicles are payment princesses.
