Gt Fog Lights with lower Roush fog install help

I currently have the two upper fog lights in my grill and really want to add the roush lower ones. Though reading the instructions for the install it says I could only have one or the either. Has anyone done this set up and ran both? If so I was wondering how? I wanted both upper and lower fog lights all functioning. If you know comment below any help is appreciated!!

You will likely have to add a separate switch that activates one set of lights. You can can hardwire the lights into the existing fog lights, but I would check my State laws first. Some States do not allow more than 4 headlights (driving and fogs count).

Wouldn't hard wiring it into the existing ones have voltage issues?

Can I ask WHY you feel you need both? I installed the roush ones and it's more than enough.

If you want to run both you will likely need to figure out some sort of relay system so you can run them without having issues.

I see where you're headed here! Some of you may not be old enough to know the Family Truckster look.

Seriously though.... You're guaranteed tickets running 4 fog lights (retired traffic cop) .... Oh god....wait.. Please don't tell me you're actually wanting to just run with just those 4'fogs on and your parking lights... That's sooooooo played. Like 1990s. You could also look into extra antennas too, shorty ones or long CB ones and even the old fake cell phone ones that stick on your rear window. It completes the look.
Dude...one or the other... That's like sticking on two fake hood scoops, since 1 just isn't enough.
Jeebus....it's like I'm on Camaro6 forum here.

You would need to configure a simple relay and wire harness. There should not be any voltage issues of done correctly.

I normally run fogs only when I turn into a driveway. It keeps the headlights on my truck out of people's windows.

Great post. I thought it was quite funny. Sadly I had to laugh at myself. I am in the process of fighting a ticket for no headlights. I was pulled over in a town I was not familiar with for driving the wrong way on a one way. It was a mistake, and I should have seen the sign. The officer approached my window and asked me to turn around. I was being polite, turned off my headlights so they were not in his face, and then got nailed for it. It was a rookie officer. I don't blame him. He did his job.

Now I make sure to light up the world when I'm not in a private driveway. Lesson learned.
