I was unable to find an 07 Tundra doublecab that had the equipment I wanted - and fog lights. In a thread in the Tundra forum, someone said they obtained the parts from Toyota to install the factory fogs and factory switch, but the parts came to $400 and the airbag, steering wheel, and part of the steering column had to be removed to install the new switch.

I would like to add aftermarket fog lights, in the bumper like the OEM, but with a separate switch on the dash. Most aftermarket fog kits require a fused relay (I would guess so do the OEMs).

Has anyone out there done this? Is there already wiring to the lamp locatons? Is there a relay? Already there? How can I identify the right wire going to the steering column (assuming that wiring is already there)?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Your lights look great! I'll check those out with my local shop.

I have the parts guy at the Toyota dealer looking up a switch that will fit one of the blank in my dash, and hopefully match the others (I don't like the look of most aftermarket switches either).

It looks like your lights are mounted directly to the blank in the bumper - or are they mounted behind it? Did you have to fabricate a bracket?

Thanks for your response and the information.

Hey guys I actually work for Baja Designs. I was planning on adding the Fuegos to my 06 Tundra but it's going to be a tight fit. I am glad to see they work on the 07 model. If you get the Fuegos I highly recommend our wiring harness. It's easy to install. All you have to do is crimp two splice connectors, route the wiring, and attach the ring terminals to the battery. The harness is wired directly to your hi beam switch so you don't have to fumble around trying to flip a toggle switch. This is important because you will blind on coming traffic if you don't shut them off fast enough. If you must have a toggle switch we do offer one that plugs into the standard harness. For reference the driving and spot patterns meant for off road use are too bright to be run in conjunction with your low beams. If you are want to add more light to supplement your low beams we do offer the Fuego in hid wide cornering pattern. It has a sharp horizontal cutoff, and if aim properly shouldn't blind on coming traffic. We will be adding a more cost efficient halogen wide cornering in the near future. Hope I was helpful.

According to an earlier post:
"got the switch from the dealer. Part #00550-35976. cost was $20"
I am in the process of putting some aftermarkets in now. I noticed that their is a mounting tab in the back of the opening. It is situated so that the light mounts with the mounting bolt horizontal. I did not know this when getting my fogs, so I am going to make some brackets out of heavy ga. sheet metal. Once mounted I will cut out the factory panels to match. These appear to be heavy thickness plastic, so I am thinking just a utility knife.
I hope this helps.

Thanks. I have installed some aftermarket lamps, and used the switch that came with them - I will check out the switch you listed, as I am sure it looks better than the clunky one I have.

The lamps I bought had a "C" shaped bracket for mounting that I bolted to some aluminum brackets (1" x 1/8") that are bolted above and below the stock mounting plate behind the plastic cups. I trimmed the plastic with a Dremel tool - then cleaned up the edges with a sharp knife. When you pop out the front fender liners, it's all easy access.

Thanks again for the help.

I got fog lights that i'm getting installed soon and the first time i brought them in the attempted to put them in with no avail, apparently the C shaped bracket needed to be longer to attach to the side wall in the bumper.

I see Ubob used 1" x 1/8", but does anyone know approxiamtely how long they need to be extended? i'm assuming only like 2-3 inches but i might be way off, the bracket i have is exactly 3" long.

Thanks,
Steve
