just get two feet of spare wire and wire them to the amber lights and call it a day.

run a wire to the constant power wire on the amber...then run a wire from the bulb to the headlight ground...very simple and you're done

I used 10 gauge wires with crimp ends and stripped the wire to show the metal put a crimp end over it and slid it over the metal part of the fog light. Same thing as a wire harness.

Sienna,

That's an awesome Christmas present! Like V6in said, some 10 Gauge wire and Crimp ends should do the trick. Get about 2 feet of wire, just in case you need some extra!

Since the V6 doesn't come with Fog Lights from Ford, you do have to make your own Wiring harness!

I hope this helps. Hit up my CS team if you have any questions! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

Hey that hand looks kind of familiar... ha

But as what others have said, just wire them bad boys to the ambers and plug into the lights with female crimp ends. I actually bought some pig tails to put on but ended up not using them because the crimped ends seem better IMHO.

No local stores had it. Can someone let me know where I can acquire the pigtail wire for cheap. Ford wants 35$ a piece. I'm not sure if the link provided above is the right size can someone confirm that for me thank you. The bulb size is 899

any pigtail from 880-899 will fit those bulbs...i know Advance has them because we sell them for about $5.99 each...but why not just use some female crimp end? you can buy a pack of them for $2.50 basically and do both bulbs and have crimp ends to spare

Would u say the pig tails are more secure though? My crimp ends I have electrical tape around them w 10 gauge wire and what not. It sometimes gets loose and winds up going out and I have to re-do them

you just cut out the three pieces of plastic sluder...your v6 bumper has the holes already in it for GT fogs so once you get the fogs they will bolt right in. only difference in a v6 and GT bumper are the three plastic pieces

Part #85812 is a harness for a 9005 headlamp. It runs $5.99..it would need just a simp slit made to clear a fog bulb... just an idea
