I like this setup, it allows you to run better than stock fog lamps too

Basically you take an old 880 light bulb. Break the glass off..and connect a wire to each lead in the bulb. Seal it up and use that to connect your new lights.

Are you attaching your bracket to the stock bracket? You might get some 'bounce' in your lights with it. Aftermarket fogs come with a much beefier mount to prevent this.

If you're comitted to aftermarket, cut off the OEM connector and wire straight to it with * plices, then waterproof your connections somewhow (a litle slicone RTV and electrical tape will do).

When you cut your OEM connector, cut them at least an inch behind the connector so you can splice them back in later if you want to.
