    I'm new to this group. I have a 2012 base model 4wd tocoma. I am looking to add fog lights. I seen ebay and a kit for about $40. Wondering if anyone has used this kit or recommends a fog lighg kit? Also i don't have intermittent wipers just hi and low and wondering if i could swap it with a switch that does. Mine has never had fog lights installed Screenshot_20190515-200148_Gallery.jpeg Screenshot_20190515-200215_eBay.jpeg

    I bought replacement ones off eBay for $27. I was surprised that they came with the wiring harness and switch. Mine already had fog lights. I haven’t had any problems except the fact that they are so damn bright that they blind people in front of me. I say go for it!

    Welcome to the family. Give it a shot. Amazon has a decent return policy. The wiper switch swap may be a little more involved, but should still work too.

    FYI: Fog lights are for fog.

    I installed those exact dogs in my 2nd gen. Been a year now and still work fine. Easy to install. Hardest part was getting the switch installed. If you use the switches by your left knee they are the easiest to get to.

    Everytime I turn on the switch I heard a barking noise. That may explain it.

    Got the fog light kit of ebay. Install went great. Had to use a fuse tap to get my switch power. Didn't want to use a fuse tap but had too. Just don't like how bright the switch is but fog lights are super bright. While I was at it I added in the led reverse lights and added in the usb ports. This is my first toyota and I am loving it. Any other cheap mods I can do? Lol 20190601_152254.jpeg 20190608_172421.jpeg 20190608_172356.jpeg 20190608_172409.jpeg 20190608_172534.jpeg Screenshot_20190608-172831_eBay.jpeg
