4x4 valance on 2wd

I want to get a 4x4 lower valance on my 2wd 1998 ranger. And I was wondering how the foglights would hook up? I noticed an extra plug hanging below my headlights, is that the hook up? And if so do they turn on with my headlights??
Please helppp

you can always do what i was going to do and get the valance and factory fog lights, but wire them up on a seperate fused with a switch. but if you do them the factory way, you will have to get the fog light radio bezel and wire the switch on that up to turn them on

Ohhh ok. Wiring my own switch sounds like the better way to go pretty much...

The new valence will just snap into place of the old one. I think you'll need fog light brackets though. IDK. I know he'll chime in.

The 4x4 valence just snaps into place and the fog lights should have bracket on them that just bolt on to the bumper. I just ran a relay with a switch so I can run just fogs with out anything else on
