99 to 08 Foglights

Putting 2008 front bumpers and fog lights on my 1999. Results of hitting a deer. :/ My only question from switching from the 9006 bulb to the 08 factory 9145 bulb. Are the connectors to the harness going to be the same? I understand the tabs will depend on how it goes into the fog light assembly. I need to get the parts ordered today, and I have waited until last minute to start checking part compatibility. >.<

Connectors are going to be different. The shape is similar, but if I recall correctly, the 9006 bulb has one "post" in the center of it's connector, and the 9145 bulb has two. You may have to splice or swap the connectors to get the newer fogs to work.

I'm going to see if I can't get a hold of any connectors, and make a pigtail for each side. I've already ordered all of the parts. So I'll have to figure something out!

I just added factory fog lights to my 09 and had to make the wiring harness myself. You can buy the 9145 light pigtails on Amazon for less than 10 bucks. Just chop the 9006 connectors off and splice on the 9145s...

for what it's worth though the pigtails I got say they work on 9006's as well as 9145's... So the factory plugs might work fine, I don't have any 9006 bulbs laying around to check.
