I haven't done it, my truck came with them. I guess my question for you is, does your bumper or cover have the cut-outs for the lights. I would guess that would be the hardest part of doing it. The wiring I, would assume, would come with the light switch and relay. My old Dak had that kit.
i know I didn't answer your question, but hope I gave a little insight.

think he is talking the skinny ones that go in the opening in the bumpers that don't have fogs in them.

Ya i'm assuming that two... It's fairly simple, i think the hardest part would be taking the fust panel apart, and taking a harness apart to add two wires into the plug... even that is fairly simple though... Be aware, you have to get the dealer to 'activate' these fogs

i didn't install them but i had them installed at the dealer took them about 45 minutes to do, i have pictures on dt forum of what it looks like (day/night). They put out pretty good light and function the same as factory ones. You need to switch your light switch and cut out some cut outs for the lights in the front they go just below your lisence plate a few inches to either side.

Dodge has a replacement head light switch panel that adds the ability to activate the fogs seperately of normal running / head lights. It comes with a lot of the kits.

You can see it in this kit photo:


I believe you pull out on the dial to turn them on.
