    Replacing stock bumper with an NFAB RSP. I am wanting to leave the oem fog light harness and purchase and install aftermarket fog lights using the oem hardware. Who has done this? Trying to avoid cutting and ruining a sturdy harness

    I did this with my Baja design fogs. I wanted to save a spot on my trigger system and didn’t see a need to dim the fogs. It’s pretty straight forward just remove the female end of your harness and the wires from your existing fogs, test your polarity to ensure you have positive to positive and connect.

    Haven’t decided. Preferably one that can be mounted to the tube on the RSP via clamp on hardware, amber, and equipped with the female end of the Toyota oem harness lol

    @Torian13 If the light you are using has a Deutsch connector (most Rigids have them) this would be the way to go.
    I used to make adapters before they became aftermarket available and @TRDFerguson link is pretty much what I used to make.

    If you don't need the Deutsch connector, these are what I used to use to make my adapters..
    Just test your hot and ground on your fog lights..

    Be careful taking the panel off to access the fog lights.
    The clips will break if you force them..

    This is the exact setup I have with the Baja Designs SAE fogs and the RSP bumper. I used Baja’s adapter to connect the lights to the stock fog harness. I tried one of the brackets to attach to the nfab bar under the headlights but did not like how everything was mounted to I had some trick tabs welded to the bumper.

    Do you have a picture of where the tabs were welded? I’m looking to do something very similar with some pods

    The tabs are welded to the top bar that is in the back. The lights are mounted hanging from the tabs.
