Run one to your relay for your offroad lights, and cap off the other, that way your foglight switch controls those lights

i would just zip tie them up out of the way so that if you want to wire something to them later you still can.

at first understand why you were disconnecting them, then i realized how much differant the mazda front end is, my fogs stay mounted with the valance off:

His valance is pretty messed up, which is why he's taking it off. And if he decides to get rid of the chrome part on it, I have had first dibs on it since day one.
