Installing Stock Foglights on a Balt W/o Fogs

The title pretty much says it...I was reading that the LT's come wired for the fogs regardless of whether or not they actually have the lights or not. Someone I know is looking at balts but she wants foglights but none of the ones for sale locally have fog lights for some reason...

If its already wired for foglights then I think its as simple as plug n play, if not then I think you have to wire them into the headlights. I think theres a thread on here about that

it basiclly tells you how to hardwire the fogs into the headlights.

All Lts should be pre-wired for the fogs. If it has the bumper with the black inserts they can be replaced with the foglight inserts. So probable plug n play.

nope, my LT came without fogs with the inserts that didnt have the foglights.

but its as easy as swapping yur headlight harness with a harness that already has fogs

I didn't know I have an LS I was just guessing. Where would you get the headlight harness for fogs?

when i did my ss swap on my ls i hadda wire in my foglights, its not hard u just have to find the power wire going to the headlight lense and wire the foglights into that/ same with the ground wire then ziptie all the wires up so it looks neet and clean and yer done

i think theres a vender on here that sells the plug and play harness as well. thats another really good idea,

as far as being wired for foglihts... my ls WAS NOT wired for foglighhs



mods... tinted taillights, 1000 watt alpine mono amp, 2 10 inch alpine type "r" subs, basspro slot ported box, xm radio, alpine 6x9 rear speekers, alpine 6.5 front speekers (both type "s",09SS front bumper and lip,black factory headlights, 12k foglights, 10k headlights, slp catback,fe5 suspension with sportlines,black carpet, painted plastics (black) huge custom pink monster sticker... and ofcourse.... BLACKED OUT!
