LED fog light upgrade

So I bought rough country 70529 led fog light conversion. It came with a relay harness. It's plug and play and you just land it on the battery and has an external push button. I would like them to work on my factory fog light switch. I know the factory fog lights are ecm controlled. So my first question is can I just hook the factory fog light wiring directly to the LED lights (2x6 led cubes) or will it be too much load? Second if that isn't an option. Can I utilize the factory fog light wiring to control the relay for the LED fogs. Thanks in advance.

Also there are 18 watt leds. So it would only be like 1.5amps.

Yes, to all of the above. You should in theory be able to connect those lights right to the PSX24W (2011 and newer JK's) connectors on the factory harness with an adapter (TRS sells a PSX24W to 9006 adapter that you could hack off if the 9006 doesn't work with your lights and just hardwire to them. I have seen some of those LED lights do a funky back and forth flicker as they bleed down, if that happens, you can do a relay and parallel the 12vdc from the harness to the coil and the line side of the relay and that will eliminate the need for any additional wiring past the bumper.

Awesome thas the info I was looking for. The factory plugs are gone and I have converted to deutsch connectors. If i get the flickering would load resistors fix the issue?

Most likely, yes. I think you shouldn't have to worry about it though.
