Pro Comp 130w Offroad Driving light

I'm in the market for a couple offroad driving lights for my front bumper. I'm wondering (without checking first ; I'm gonna look into it by the weekend) if it is at all possible to run Pro Comp 130w driving lights off the stock wiring of my fog lights circuit. Before my SAS, I had a pre-runner bumper with a couple Pro Comps on it, but I believe they were the 5" 55w lights. I've wanted to upgrade from them for awhile and am finally at that point. I know I need to check into what amperage capacity the gauge of wire the fog circuit can run and what the maximum fuse possible is. So I'm curious if anyone has gone down this road and with what success..

No way 130 watts is way too much. Just run the wiring that comes with them and then use the stock switch to trigger the relay.

I figured as much. Only a 6" tail of wiring comes w/'em. I suppose I'll have to look into whatever harness is available for them. Thanks.

Dang that sucks. I would just run down to Autozone and get whatever gauge wire you need and just do it yourself.

You can make up your own harness using a relay and some wire. Use the stock switch to turn on your relay and you are set.
