Default Independent fog mod

Has anyone been successful in modding their factory fogs on their '14 so they work independent of the headlights? I have modded my wife's 4Runner by bending a pin on the relay and hooking it to a power source that is on with the ignition. Wondering if something similar can be done with my truck.

I guess no one has done this huh? I'm contemplating running separate wiring for them and just having them come on when the truck starts so they are DRL's by day and Fogs by night and just on all the time.

Lots of ways to do this depending on what you want to accomplish.

You could run a power jumper to the OEM fog light switch so they weren't dependent on the low beam signal to trigger, you could wire them through completely separate switch (though your EVIC may tell you you have bulbs out depending on year?), or you could wire them into a ignition hot power source as you have mentioned. You could also jumper the relay so the lights were operational while running high beams.

All depends on what you really want to accomplish.

I would be interested in having the fogs remain on when i have the high beams on. Sounds like jumping the relay would be the way to go for that. Anyone do that?
