If you want your fogs on with parking lights, auto lights, low beams, AND high beams you don't have to do the complete switch mod. Connect #5 yellow wire to #12 brown wire. That gives power to the fogs any time the parking lights are on. They stay on with the high beams too, and are always on with the switch turned to auto. Again, THERE IS NO NEED TO TAKE APART THE SWITCH TO DO WHAT YOU WANT.

All Craigslist finds...
$50 ARE bed cover
$50 Rails & Crossbars
$100 thule bike racks
Used as-is (blue) for a time, then wife was driving and got caught in hail storm.
Used hail damage insurance money to repair roof (which was already damaged from previous owner, but you can'ts normally see it) to cover painting bed cover to match.

Trimmed down an Expidition roof rack to fit my Supercrew. Between this, and my bed cover-mounted bike racks, we're ready for many adventures...

Scored a used Pace Edwards retractable bed cover off local Marketplace for $150.
Gone are the days of muscling the fibergass cover off, or riding with the cover open when I need to haul something tall.

Saw these USB ports somewhere else and got an idea.
My Supercrew only had a cigerette lighter "accessorie outlet" on the passengers side in the rear.
Of course, then my kids fight over who gets to sit on that side on trips.
I kept telling myself it would be easy to add another to the opposite side if I went to the junkyard and found one.
Well, for $8.75 each, I saved myself a trip to the junkyard, and also never have to worry about not having any 12V chargers...
Replaced the existing passenger side one, and added one to the drivers side.
Wanted to add a third for the middle seat, but there isn't enough

room behind the panel there. Still thinking on that one...
