    Default help! led light bar wiring to where fog lights used to be....

    Okay so I'm going to purchase an led light bar for my truck, unused to have fog lights until rocks broke them, the wiring and connecters are still there, so my question is will I be able to use the existing wiring and relays that were on the fog lights for the led bar with out having to purchase a whole new wiring kit?

    Thanks in advanced!

    I don't see why you couldn't. Just check the amp draw on the new light bar and make sure the fuse to the existing fog circuit is a little higher. Probably is a 10 or 15 amp fuse. Not sure without going out and looking at mine. Also make sure the polarity is correct or the bar will not work. You most likely will have to use a meter to determine positive on the truck wiring. Maybe post a picture of the bar and some specs as others might be interested.
