    So I'm thinking about putting a fog valance on and I was wondering if it's worth wiring it to a switch on the dash instead of just tying it into the headlights somewhere under the hood. If so how hard is it? I haven't been able to find a valance which comes with fogs yet so if someone knows where I can that'd also be appreciated. (sorry if there's a thread on this already I missed)

    Yes LMCtruck for that, It may be pricey shipping but worth it. As far as inner wiring for the fogs, hit Buggman up he builds stuff like that and I am sure he can make something up for you

    Yeah I've seen his fog switches and was thinking about that. Would I just run a positive from the headlights around the steering column to the radio bezel then?

    Check out too.
    I got a grille from them for about $30 shipped.

    Finding a valance with the fogs, brackets & wiring will be hard but you should be able to put the pieces together from a few sources.

    For the wiring, I wouldn't even try to get the factory wiring integrated unless you really want 100% stock. I make a conversion kit for OEM fog switches that bypasses the factory wiring & allows you to use pretty much any 12v accessory.

    well seats are my #1 priority at the moment but if I do end up getting a fog valance (which I hopefully will) I'll def need to get some kit from you then haha

    He's about two and a half hours from me but near the beach I go to so if I don't have any by the next time I go by there I just might. We've even talked about it actually

    Get a toggle switch of your choice/likin & put it to the left on a 93-94 Ranger below the headlight switch, easy access to do it. Here's the wirin diagram I used:
    On 95up, you'd just have to chose a spot of your likin. I'm plannin on makin a panel to fit into the unused air duct above the radio on the 95 I'm workin on.

    Yeah, thats what I've been hearing. I may have to get new headlights first though so this had been backburnered :L
