How would i wire these???

Hey guys sorry if this is a repost thread but i couldnt find anything that helped in the threads. i have a 2004 XLT 4x4 what does not have the factory radio bezel with the fog switch. i bought the fogs, then i attemped to buy a bezel from 4LO 4.0 and thats a mess (money sent and item not recieved thing). not im just concisering running them off a switch somethere in my truck. i dont want to spend $135 at the dealer, ive looks at the local jy's and im hesitant now to buy from ppl now cuz of wonderful 4LO 4.0. anyway, i have a few questions

1. How hard is it to wire them to a reg toggle switch or somehting?
2. could i run those lower valance fogs and like 2 KC's fogs off thast one switch? if so how cuz i dont want a ton of toggles to run different lights and things?
3. and any other ideas that i can do would be great help.

these are the fogs im trying to wire rite now. i have the plug (or what i think is the plug) behine the radio bezel. obviously as i stated above, they are the ones in the valance on the bottom. thanks again

1.) Its just like wireing any type of aux. lights
2.) I wouldnt want to over load anything
3.) I'd use a wireing kit from a set of hellas but use the factory switch instead of the rocker switch for a cleaner look. I'm surprised you cant find any radio bezels in JY the ones around me are filled with Explorer and Rangers

You could wire both the fog lights and KCs on separate relays with the same switch triggering them. It would be pretty easy to wire up

I have mine wired to a standard toggle switch. Your fogs dont draw that much power do you shouldn't need a relay IF, and only if, your switch can handle the load.
