Stock Fog Lamp Wiring on YJ?

Hey folks, new guy here. I tried searching the board for an answer but as far as I can tell, this question hasn't been asked before. So here goes.

What I'd like to do is wire my brand new $15 driving lights(going with the I'm-gonna-break-it-anyway-might-as-well-make-it-cheap-to-replace route) into the stock 'fog lamp' circuit that I see in the schematic(haynes manual). My 1991 YJ didn't have the stock ones from the factory but I'm pretty certain that the wiring is in the harness anyway. I have a fuse for it in the fuse box under the hood, and there's a space for a relay there as well(though it's not there).

Anyone with the stock lamps know what the wiring looks like? Where does it break off from the main harness? What connectors should I look for? The schematic has the wire colors but doesn't seem to show the connectors.

Anybody know if this can be done?

How about just splice into the Low Beams? Or the Relay for it... [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Thanks for replying, Muddynut. I read the numerous threads about 1001 reasons not to take high-current wires into the cab area and what wire goes to terminal 87 and all that. So I know how to run my own wiring for the lights.

What I'm asking is if I can use some of the wiring that already exists in my stock harness to do the job. It just seems silly to make a redundant circuit when I might have a fully functional one ready to plug the lights and a switch into(and add the missing relay).

Where did the stock fog lamps go, anyway? I don't see any mounting holes anywhere--all I could find when I looked around and near the bumper were the threaded holes in the frame under the plastic crossmember cover that are there for the tow hooks. Or are those the fog lamp mounts?
