Starkey makes a refurb kit with everything. I would recommend it. That's what I had on my old v6. It has everything from the switch to the bottom grille

See, the build is already underway. Just go with it, even if it means not saving a couple of bucks.

So I attach one end of the harness to the fogs and the other to the switch? What else needs connecting?

You'll have to tap into the switch, fusebox, and power.

It was super easy with the harness Starkey supplied. It was all to length and had splice connectors with it. However, if you're doing your own harness, it might be slightly different.

^ All depends on your wiring skills. Took me less than an hour. You actually replace your switch. You have to splice into your fuse box on one end and your switch harness on the other. The Starkey harness is OEM quality and looks like factory when you're done. The instructions are very clear. Give it a shot.

It was definitely worth it, even though it was a little more pricey.

I am very new to this and I did the same conversion plus added lower valance fogs also. It took me 3-4 hrs in my garage to complete the whole process. You will have to buy 2 harnesses. one is the kit for lower valance fog second one is the extension from lower to Grille fogs. Yes to install Fogs u will need to remove the front bumper (Not that hard). There are videos on youtube you can follow. Pretty straight forward.

What do you mean bulb connector?
Mustang Fog Light Wiring & Switch Kit - Fits V6 and Boss 302 (2013-2014)
That should be all the wiring/connectors you will need. Just grille and fogs left I believe...

I think you'll need the H11 connectors plus this:

I am not completely sure on that though.

That all seems to be adding up to be expensive, they discontinued the kits because of the 13-14s not being in production anymore. I think I paid $400 for all the wiring, connectors, switch, fogs, upper and lower grille refurb. It seems as though you're looking at $300 for just wiring, switches, and connectors.

It's however much you want to spend. If you can get grilles and fogs for cheap, I'd go for it. I loved mine.

Do have halos? I want to do this Bc a guy wants to trade grilles Bc his gt one won't fit something for his supercharger. So I figured this would be an easier and cheaper way to get some halos

I did this as well. As stated it is super easy and videos available on youtube. Took only a couple of hours. The Starkey switch also provides the option to have automatic head lights.

Regular gt fogs. The switch was just as easy. Forgot to mention the switch also allows you to use high beams and fog lights simultaneously.

If i was doing this i would get the foglights, grille and make my own wire kit. I dont really think there is a need to pay 190$ for factory switch thing. Just get a regular heavy duty two way flip switch from autozone or oreilly. Get a long good quality piece of wire that you can pull through the cabin to the fog lights. Connect the negative wire of the both the fog lights to the metal on your car. Get a fuse tapper and tap into fuse box from passenger side maybe fuse 7 or 8. Connect one positive wire to the switch and the output wire from the switch to both of the foglights positive wire. Place the switch somewhere thats convenient to you and you are done with the installation. All the wiring connections would take you about an hour and you'll be done within 25$ i suppose.

I think I would still get the factory switch because I've seen it on Amazon for like $15. Could I do that and then make my own wiring assembly?

I havent seen the stock fog light switch pins so really cant help you there. I'll try to look for their wiring diagram if i can find it, i might be able to help you there. I would think there should be one extra pin for positive output from the switch for foglight but to figure out which pin is for the fogs, you would need to get a diagram or do trial an error method. TBH i cant confirm this until i see the switch pins or have a wiring diagram.

Your V6 does not have factory bumper fog lights, correct?
