Just trigger a relay from the hi beam circuit. You may have to do the diode/capacitor fix if the lights pulse or dim.

Mine are hooked up this way, when I get home i'll dig up my wiring diagram and tell you the wires that I used.

I did use a relay but did not need a cap and diode, the actual fog light set up stock is better than the headlights, when I was running all HID stuff up front there were no issues fog wise, headlights needed cap and diode trick.

Just installed my driving lights yesterday, so it's still fresh.

My kit came with all the wiring, fuses and switches I needed, but if yours doesn't, it's still pretty easy.

Just need a lead from the positive side of the battery to the relay (May want to put a 25amp inline fuse here), a lead from the high beam wire to a switch in the cab (2amp inline fuse), then back out to the relay. And a ground lead from the relay to bare metal under the hood, along with grounds for the lamps themselves.

My high beam wire was the white/slate wire to the head light harness.

Just a though, but wouldn't you want your fogs to be on with your low beams? Pretty sure that is the white/brown wire in the harness. either way I guess.
