You can use the factory wiring for the switch but you'll need to add a relay. I did it and it works fine and off the factory switch.

i wired them up seperatly, but will add a diode so i can used the stock switch or have them on independent of the factory lights. damn are they bright for fog lights, brighter than the lowbeams

yea ive notice jeep cheaped out on the brightness of the factory headlights. i mean there okay for city driving but me and my friends would go up north and be scouting for animals at night in my jeep and i wouldnt be able to see much. i dont think they are wide enough if u know what i mean.
thats why i got some kc driving lights on the windshild. im going to upgrade with more lighting in the future aswell.
