Just finished installing my x-mas gifts last night. Factory style LED fog lights and KC Hilites 5” Apollo pro spread beam lights in the bumper. My hands are beat to ****. I also used Air-On-Board factory switches in the dash so I don’t have funky non-matching Switches. What do you all think?

That looks awesome!
Please tell me if you needed to do anything special with the switch or if it worked right out of the box?
Mine is still in transit!
A member here Mentioned that you had to add diodes and resistors to make it work on our trucks?

To what did you mount the lights? Can you provide a pic of your mounting point?

This is similar to what I want to do

I mounted them directly to the plastic grill. It seems to be pretty sturdy and the Apollo pros are a lightweight polymer housing so I’m not concerned. I had to disassemble the black lower grill from the bumper. It is just a small 10mm screw on both sides , 4 10mm screws below and a bunch of clips around the perimeter. Take your time

I spliced the amber dashlight lead (green wire from switch) into a blue wire from the down hill control switch. Ran the ACC power across the dash to an unused ACC fuse in the fuse box using some wire and an piggyback fuse.

So it was as simple as drilling a hole in the bumper? I was thinking it would be more complicated than that LOL

Thanks for the pics!

No diodes or resistors for my install. I pretty much bypassed the factory Nissan harness with only tapping into one dash light wire. My ACC power for the switches was from the ACC fuse box by the glovebox. I used a “Dealer Accessory” unused fuse to piggyback into with an add-a-fuse. I wanted the turn on/off the lights only when the truck is on. I can turn them on independently from the headlights/parking lights. Next step is swapping out the 55w KC bulbs with 100w.

Glad to hear!
When I made a thread about those switches, someone commented essentially saying: "Good luck with those switches". They said that they simply wouldn't work right out of the box without some modifications. And I'm far from knowledgeable on any of this!
It was very discouraging!

It was a bit complicated pulling off the lower grill but worth it for a clean look with no exposed hardware
It is during these complicated projects that it's handy having a son that works in a body shop, and his primary job is to disassemble and reassemble vehicles. He knows pretty much how all vehicles are put together (some are done better than others).

Where in the cramped engine bay did you feed through the firewall? Did you use an existing grommet? I was already planning on something similar with light pods mounted where yours are so I'm stoked I found your post. Glad to hear the AOB switch I have ordered will work too...
Cheers

I used the small dime-sized rubber grommet located next to the main harness grommet on the driver’s side firewall. Just make sure to push wires through from the cab side towards the engine bay. This willl prevent you from loosing your grommet between the carpet/insulation and cabside firewall.
