Looking to install fog lights...

Looking to install fog lights as I really like the look of having fog lights in the front on the original bumper. Eventually I'll get the wiring harness and switch to complete the install but for now it's just for looks. Can anyone steer me in the right direction as to which/what type of fog lights I can purchase? Looking for the OEM or aftermarket lights as long as they look similar to the factory ones. Any help is greatly appreciated. These will be installed on the factory bumber. Trying to keep it completely stock. I was looking for the factory brush guard with fog lights but another member stated that those brush guards are damage multipliers and don't add any protection.

Thanks

Re: Looking to install fog lights.....

There are several threads here with the Toyota part numbers for the switch and so on, also telling you where the pre-wired wires are in the center console and near the firewall.

Check out my avatar below, these are a pair of 7" PIAA LED driving lights, crazy bright and match the styling of the OEM headlights very nicely.

To install them, use the PIAA stainless steel "hidden bracket" kit, which is far superior to the TRD painted brackets which rusted after only a couple of winters. The stainless steel parts should still be as good as new for a long time. For reference, this kit, which is available from the PIAA website, is a copy of the original SET/GST kit sold by dealers in the south east US during original FJ production.

Is this the kit?

Did you have to do drilling?


I am fine with the PIAA - I will search it.

Were you able to use the Toyota switch and the prewired wires etc?

"Is this the kit? http://www.piaa.com/store/p/720-PIAA...acket-Kit.aspx"

yes


"Did you have to do drilling?"

yes, two holes in the top of the plastic bumper for the light posts to go through, other than those two, the other mounting points use existing bumper attaching fasteners underneath


"Were you able to use the Toyota switch and the prewired wires etc?"

yes, as TS Farling suggested, search on the internet for one of the Toyota wiring kits, hopefully some are still around and available
