Are you using those in place of your fog lights or are you using those with your foglights? The stock wiring can handle just one set of lights, I wouldn't put 2 on the same wiring.

run a relay with its trigger wired up to the fogs. When you turn your fogs on, it'll turn the relay on to power your new lights.

keep in mind that if you piggyback them off the fogs, that you won't be able to use you new lights on hi beam, unless you mod the fog light-hi beam interlock.

That's what i did.

Did the highbeam/foglight mod too.

But i installed a cutoff switch too, so I can still run my fogs without the hella's.

what are you going to do one night when it's foggy or snowy? you'll want to use your fog lights, but can't because the off road lights are also connected.
Do the right and smart thing - wire your off road lights up independently with their own relay and switch.
