Default Is It Possible To Add Aftermarket Lower Fog Lights On My Car?

Hey guys, today I was trying to put leds in the cornering lights and I didn't like how they looked (I have my cornering lights to turn on when headlights turn on), i just ended up unplugging them, but my question is, is there anyway to add aftermarket fog lights to my front lower bumper? If there is how would I go by doing that?

If you buy a set of lights they usually come with all the wiring harnesses and everything you need. Just mount the lights wherever you want them (usually with screws), run the wires and that's it. Some kits come with a wireless switch so you don't have to run wires through the firewall.

If I bought fog lights that have a positive and negative wire would I be able to hook up the positive to my headlight
Fuse so they come on automatically when my lights turn on so I don't need to run wires through the firewall?

You never, ever, never, ever wire the aftermarket fogs with your headlights. Leave the headlights alone and do NOT tap into anything that has to do with headlights or fogs.

Every aftermarket fog lights come with instructions to install. If they don't, buy a separate fog light wiring kit that will give you simple, detailed instructions and diagrams that tell you exactly what to wire to what.

Good luck

Yes there is, you sell that ugly factory 04-06 bumper and you upgrade to an 07-08 and voila! You can have fogs now.
