if you plan on running them all the time it will be a problem.

just tap the 12v connection from the lights in your bullbar to the 12v wire in your stock fogs.

^^No.

Run the switch power off your relay, and splice it into your hot(+) at your fogs.

Always run a relay.

Yeah, bad advice there from jtslmn. and don't say that you haven't had a problem with yours...yet. Always run a relay with something that putts out as much watts as lights do.
