actually it has 3 grounds, Passenger side has one ground for the light, same goes for the driver side, and then the harness has one that controls the Hi/Lo box...I just used the same ground spot for the driver side

I couldn't find any with "telescopic" in the ad, other than the one that was linked, and that auction is over.

is there any HID kits for the fogs, so they can match. Or is that bad, should we not put HIDs in the fogs?

HIDs in the fog are fine. 9005 kit is what you need.....My buddy Trevor's truck '01 ranger has 4300k in the headlights, and 3000(or so)k in the fogs....dont quite remember, but its like 3000k(yellow). Ballast location was a little harder. He wheels his truck from time to time and hasn't had any trouble the the fogs.
