How do your rear fogs work?

I HAVE used the search function and know that from factory they don't work at all. My question is; with the adaptor harness, when do they come on? With your front fogs,or with the park lights?

Thx guys

Buy the rear fog wire harness from Taillight Solutions. They only come on for the EU rigs.
The harness is really easy to install.

you really haven't searched if you haven't found anything, to be frank. but it depends what system you use to Set them up. Mine come on with brakes and blinker and completely off at other times, i Used a trailer harness. There is also a kit sold from a vender on here (Ken at Taillight solutions) that i think replaces the bulb and allows it to have a dim setting and bright setting just like the brakes.

Damn you guys are fast...

They are more of a parking light not really a fog light

Kens harness is pretty trick because it makes the single filament bulb act like a double.

Basically it replicates what the brake/turn light does at least on the later Jeeps that have just one double filament brake bulb

He does it using the existing single filament bulb.

If you have a '06, check your trailer wiring harness.

No need to pay $$$ for a harness if you can splice in yourself and do it for 5$.

After re-reading my original post, i realized i was typing much slower than my brain was thinking, LOL

What i meant was; for those that have purchased or made their own harness for the rear fogs, when do they come on? (with the brakes/signals OR with the park lights OR when the front fogs are on OR like dual filament bulbs with park and brake light)

My apologies and thanks!! I'll fix my first post
