IDK about wiring them into the headlight switch, but if you hook them straight to the battery and use a switch it isn't to hard.

Yeah what hutch said it will be a whole hell of a lot easier to hook it to its own switch rather then buying the headlight switch with fog light provision.

I say wire them into the headlights with a relay so they are always on with your lights!
Did you get the kit from ebay or did you pony up and go through Ford?

Oh no, Ebay. I paid $160 for it. It comes with the OEM switch, lamps, relay, harness, and bulbs.

Please do, I need a write up.

cool, you had me worried with the opening of "Just Ordered", most things are bought or got on eBay. Let us all know how it turns out! I want to do the same thing, except I want to wire them to the low beams so they are always on.

How to install link

They do work whenever you have your low beams on, but if your lights are off then so are they.

My point was to not have to change out the factory HL switch and or go under the dash, Just keep the wiring simple and under the hood.

I'd rather have full control of the fogs. This is why I want to use the OEM headlight switch w/fog. Vonkrause thank you for the write up.

AWESOME! It took me about 3 hours to decrypt the booklet, did you get a booklet? Did you see how stupid it was?

Glad it went smoothly though, everything working?

This also makes me want to look up another set of those halo fogs. But that might be a little much.

30 minutes after I jacked up the car and the wheel off. It was easy as cake.

That booklet, I skimmed through it and just didnt even use it. Some steps just didnt clarify what to do. But got it done super fast All because of the fog light Write up.

sorry for crappy image but its a cell pic:

Oh btw, the white lights are from switchback LEDs, They are BRIGHT!
