    Just as the title says, what is the factory fog light amp draw on these rigs? I looks quite a bit but want to make sure I dont wire something in that overloads the factory wiring.

    The stock 55w bulbs will draw 4.58A at 12v. Which makes the fog lights as the pair a minimum 10A circuit. I'd probably make it a 15A to be safe.

    So I could safely run a second set of LED rock lights plus maybe even a small light bar? The LUX rock lights draw 200-300ma so I could probably run 3-4 more off the nose and underbelly.

    Well it's at minimum a 10A fuse. So for something that draws only .2 to .3A, you can run a whole lot of them.

    Well I mean the idea is to use the factory harness and splice in and run either a bunch of extra rock lights or an amber light bar or both.

    I understand that. I'm saying you should have no issues doing that. The circuit is more than up for the challenge of running a bunch of LEDs.

    Ok good, I hate wiring so the less figuring out I have to do and the more plug and play the better!
