So after two days of work my new fogs are installed they look great.
No major fabrication involved we made some custom brackets out of 45 degree reinforcement brackets and used an existing hole in the bumper. Total cost involved was about $75.00 for everything brackets, lights, wiring misc. connectors.

We found an existing hole in the bumper channel to fabricate some custom brackets (easy) to mount the lights to. I still have all of the measurements layed out on a sketch if anyone would like them. They were easy to make.
Just a drill , vise, and some bits.

Here are some more detailed shots of the inside of the bumper. We did use a little silicone at the top of the lamp to help to secure it. Also we tapped in to the parking lamp wire on the drivers side front for power so , the lights only work with the parking lamps on. Thanks to my Dad for his help and my neighbor Tom for all the trips to his house for stuff we didn't have.

Nice jobby there roktoy
them puppies aint gunna move in a hurry
When you said you tapped into your park lights for power, you were only meaning as the switch line to turn them on right?. I know it may seem a silly question but you did use a relay didnt you?
What info were you after concerning the indicator Stalk?maybe I can help out on that 1

Aussie,

There is no relay as they are not true "halogens". I tapped into the switched power at teh parking lights with a quick splice.

I am not going ot use the factory stalk..but for the pathfinder there is a foglight switch that fits the blanks on our dash to the left of the steering wheel I woould like that part number

Did you find that your truck was not pre-wired for fog lights from the factory? I heard or read somewhere that XE's were not pre-wired.

Thanks
