Default Fog Light Toggle Switch

Hey guys so i've read multiple posts on the multi-function switch how to fix it and the like, but i'm leaning more towards wiring up a toggle switch to control the fogs. Any how-tos?

Don't think there's any HOW TO's on the toggle switch but I do know you should go through a relay. Plenty of spare fuses in the PDC if you have the first generation cruiser and there's usually an extra space or two in the center console under the radio if you want to make it a clean set-up. I Put two extra switches in there myself.

Yep, that's the first generation 2001-2005. You can see in the picture below that I added two red switches just under the radio. One for the Aooga Horn (spring loaded push button)and one lighted toggle switch that turns on the undercar LED lights.

If you mean the chrome upper intake, it's not a cover. I sent the intake away to a place that takes plastic parts and dips them in chrome. The first one I got back bubbled up in about a week, (see photo) so they sent me a new one and i sent the old one back. I did the red striping myself on the ribs of the intake with a paint pen from Wal-Mart to match the vanity cover and upper strut bar.
